Have you ever noticed how loud kids get in cafeterias? The “Chatter Ladder” is our fun and entertaining solution to this problem! A sound meter in the “Chatter Ladder” detects and registers the noise level every second; the quieter students are, the more points they score and the more lights are illuminated on the ladder. Messages scroll across the top of the screen either congratulating or encouraging quiet conversation! An average score is recorded for each lunch period. Each lunch group tries to attain the highest score and see the most lights light up on the “Chatter Ladder”.
Problem tackled: Collecting batteries to recycle them.
Solution: The device, a used-batteries collector, takes advantage of the form factor of a pinball to engage people into playing. Batteries replace metal balls. Pulling on and releasing the lever propulse the battery onto the playfield. Multiple boards could be adapted. The hole to target is indicated to the player through a visual cue. The goal is to reach the target by applying the appropriate force on the lever.

When you read, the eyes needs to go from the end of each line back to start of the next line, covering that ground without picking up any words. When reading, like you are now, gathering information from symbols placed on paper, could you pick up information on your way back from the last line? It would be like watching television without commercials, smooth sure gliding the whole way.

Regularly showering isn’t that much fun. Well this invention denies that fact. The waterflow is activated by a sound detector or in other words by whistling or singing. That way people will not just take a shower standing quietly, being bored to death but will be having a lot of fun and will be in a better mood when they walk out of the bathroom.

People like motor sports and especially car racing. How can they get in a car race and be a part of that? They can wear a styrofoam racing car on there hip and race on the track, with sector and lap times to be simultaneously shown on the lcd screen.
Running against a racing car is fun...

You also get a great view, a nice breeze [ in summer] and back-pack hatches! What a fun convenient way to get to school! Inskickat av McLean Masuch
How about saving lives with something as simple as a sticker? Hybrid image shows different pictures depending on the distance of the viewer. The idea is using hybrid image on a sticker and stick it to your rear car window. This will warn the car behind you if they get too close and prevent accident.

In 2008 we came up with this idea at Miami Ad School Europe. It won awards at Clio and Young Guns but no mater how hard we tried to make it alive, no recycling company were interested. Perhaps they thought it ain't funny.

Simple idea: you get a coin or a bunch of them, insert into the machine that will give you a puzzle piece. On the side it will have a board to complete the puzzle. Just find the one's missing and that's it. The more you donate, the more you'll play. Inskickat av Raphael Santos.
Recycling bins are often used inappropriately or not used at all. Yes-U-Can is a magnet from all points of view. Its basic design is a very tall inverted translucent bin, where cans fly to the top thanks to a standard low-power electromagnet. Its advantages include:
* People can see their can as it flays over to the top
* Due to its height, the bin is very easy to see even if you are far away
* By catching peoples attention, it collaborates with the amount of garbage collected by the other two standard bins
* It has an increased capacity, only limited by the decided height
Why spend your money on new stuff? Why throw away things you don't need? How about you could trade your old stuff for a perfectly good object that someone's not using anymore?
Meet new people , save money and energy needed to produce new things , keep track of your old belongings ( how they travel around the world ) and have fun while doing it!

Credit cards make life so much more easier that you do not have to carry stacks of moneys any more. Every time when you buy something the only thing you use is just a piece of card. But sometimes it also makes consumption unreasonable. People lost the sense of physical money. I created some new concepts of credit cards to remind people that digital money also has the similar physical attribute as the old money. They are not just numbers. You can feel it so that you can try to control your consumption.

This fun and self-efficient attachment to bathroom fixtures is interactive with flashing lights and cool sounds. It can adapt to faucets, hand dryers, and water-use efficient shower heads. Whenever someone puts his or her hands under the SaberSaver, the sounds and lights change depending on the orientation of their hands. This entertaining addition increases the appeal of water-use efficient shower heads, encourages hand washing, reducing the spread of diseases, and promotes using hand dryers instead of paper towels, reducing paper waste. SaberSaver encourages good habits by making them fun!
Hela Stockholm är ditt spelbräde! Här och var på stadens gator målas ett enormt nätverk av röda linjer och noder. Vid varje nod finns en fråga eller ett påstående, som uppmuntrar fotgängare att ta ställning eller svara på frågan genom att välja en av två eller fler röda linjer, som är markerade med respektive svarsalternativ (samt pilar för riktningen). Detta uppmanar folk att promenera mer, för att det är roligt att se vart de röda trådarna leder, och vilka frågor som kommer härnäst! Och så ser trottoarerna inte så tråkiga ut heller!
My idea for the project The Fun Theory is to solve the problem of cigarettes consumed and thrown away in parks (causing fires) or in the streets (increasing environmental pollution). I thought to encourage use of outdoor ashtray insert the typical sound of crackling wood that attracts attention and also an hologram on the surface of the ashtray. Depositing the cigarette the hologram reproduces the fire by creating fun and wonder.

Can you make people spend less water while taking a bath? Most of the times people leave the tap open even if they are not using the water to shower. This is because they do not want to feel the cold from outside. So the idea would be for each shower to have underneath enough water for a person to shower and a system that could clean and recycle that water. This would prevent people to spend too much water. In addition, this shower would generate a warm atmosphere with different color lights and water vapor.

People use their car horns for all sorts of messages: Celebrating after a sports match, telling a friend "I'm here" when sitting outside his house, saying "Thank you" to another driver who has let you drive first over a one-lane bridge or saying "Good bye" to family as they wave to you. Yet in every case, we use the same, purposefully-dissonant sound to express each message. This results in both noise pollution and ambiguity. I propose that we add a second horn to each new car and truck sold: A horn that is euphonious, not dissonant, one that plays a major third or major fifth.
