Works in the town are always disturbing. Neighbours get angry and workers do not work comfortable. If the atmosphere is good, people work faster, better, and everybody is happy. Can we create a pleasant environment with fun? We think so.

Cigarette Butt Incinerator

2009-12-15 16:39 - 0 Kommentarer

This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

Thermochromic Hand Dryer

2009-11-30 16:48 - 0 Kommentarer

The thermo chromic hand dryer is a simple and fun way to indirectly increase participation in hand washing via adding an element of fun at the secondary stage – hand drying. Adding thermochromic paint to the metal parts, most notably the directional nozzle, will induce a visible and spectacular colour change as hot air comes into contact with the metal upon a user activating the hand dryer. The engaging effect is similar to that produced by thermocolour t-shirts and thermochromic mugs.

The problem:
Cigarette butt litter.

The solution:
Setting up giant see-through spheric urns with the happy face printed on them that, when filled, will resemble theirr classic color.

The Shopping Cart Return

2009-12-15 22:33 - 0 Kommentarer

Problem: Shopping carts are not being returned. Instead they are left scattered around the parking lot, often occupying a parking space and sometimes rolling in to vehicles causing damage while unsuspecting shoppers are off shopping.


Outside living room

Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Inskickat av Simon Scherer.


Combined Individual Transport

2009-12-15 18:06 - 0 Kommentarer

Cities are congested with traffic. The pollution from traffic is high. Parking is scarce and very expensive. What I promote is combined individual transport. People would still use regular cars for longer distances, like from suburbs to near the center. For shorter distances, in parts of towns with dense traffic, or within the center, people would use bikes or tricycles (pedaled or geared by electric motors), which would be foldable, and therefore it would be possible to keep them in the trunk of the car.

Car eco-driving game

2009-12-15 17:48 - 0 Kommentarer

It is proven that a driver's mood can influence car fuel consumption by over 20%. So what if we could turn driving into an eco-driving game, making it fun? The idea is to read the instant fuel consumption from the on-board computer with a small processing unit, or in older models, read the accelerator pedal position with a simple and cheap infrared position sensor. A small and discrete LCD/LED screen would be placed on the dashboard where a toy face would appear.


Targeted Urinal

No one likes it when they go to a public restroom only to find that the last person there seemingly was unable to focus on what they are doing. This careless behavior results in an unsanitary environment, additional sanitation worker costs and more people carelessly abusing the restrooms. So how do we change this behavior in a fun way? In this fun theory we propose directing the patrons’ attention toward where they should be aiming while also showing them something they can be proud of (Percentage of Accuracy).

Hope Rewards

The Hope Rewards

2009-11-30 10:09 - 0 Kommentarer

The idea is to teach compassion in a fun and interactive way. This is a video game that has three choices of play: (1)Three ethics questions, (2) Choosing the ending of a video scenario or (3) Viewer watches a short video depicting life as the member of a selected group (Autism, other disability, homeless, other culture). Machine would be banked with MANY scenarios and information – as so not to become predictable. Original purpose: autism awareness, but can be used for various other reasons.


Rainbow at the bus stop

2009-12-07 16:44 - 0 Kommentarer

In this colourless city at the bus stop, where it’s too boring to stand. Where there’s nothing interesting.. How could the bus stops turned into meeting points,encourage people to use more the means of transportation and make the city beautiful at the same time? This concept will change our point of view for people around us and we will make us part of a work of art. Inskickad av Carlos.


Give Peace a Chance

2009-12-15 15:57 - 0 Kommentarer

Too often in our disputes with friends, family and neighbors we chose non-productive and sometime destructive options for handling conflict. Over time these become knee-jerk reactions with little thought going to other ways of engaging those with whom we are in conflict.

Give Peace a Chance is a game, located in large public spaces, that helps people explore constructive alternatives in handling their everyday disputes.


Snapshot crossing

2009-12-16 18:39 - 0 Kommentarer

What could make waiting for green light at a road crossing more fun? This simple fix will appeal to people´s love of having their photograph taken. If you cross by red light nothing will happen. But if you wait until the little green man turns up you'll have your photo taken as you cross - just like when riding a roller coaster! The snapshots will be displayed on a big screen on a nearby house side - for you to enjoy fifteen seconds of fame!

Soap Machine

2009-12-16 14:15 - 0 Kommentarer

The problem is that sometime people go to the restroom and they donot wash their hand with soap. The solution is to make the soap machines fun. My soap machine have four buttons, you have to figure out which one is the one that gives you liquid soap. Every time you click in one of the four buttons and it doesnt give you the soap it will take out bubbles and make the sound bip and said it is wrong. If you click in the correct one it will give you the liquid soap and advice that why it is important to use soap and it will make more bubbles.

Fruit Trolley Poker

2009-12-09 15:31 - 0 Kommentarer

On the way home from work at least one local supermarket shopping trolley (Shopping cart) has made its way up the street and onto the front lawn of our local housing project. Invariably the cart will sit there for a week and attract other carts until the local council has to collect and return them at a cost. Some times they’re so badly damaged they just get thrown away. Large shopping centers can generate up to 200 missing shopping trolleys a day and one Australian business that tracks and returns shopping trolleys receives on average 1000 phone calls a week from the public.

Placing boards with different designs to be filled with the gum color.

Recycled Vending Machine

2009-11-24 16:13 - 0 Kommentarer

In some countries people don't see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Soda Recycling-Vending Machine that will allow everybody to purchase a new icy soda by paying with their old cans! How it works? Once the machine has confirmed that is in fact a soda can (and no plastic or glass bottles for example) and the consumer has selected the drink, the old can goes to the inner container, the mechanism activates and the buyer gets a nice icy and refreshing soda!

To improve the knowledge of general culture the idea is to create a quiz at the bus stop. If you answer all the 5 questions correctly, you'll get a free bus ticket.

People not picking up their dog poo is a major problem around the world. Cities and towns would be much cleaner if they did, and citizens would be happier. Few solutions have had much of an impact, but maybe that’s because this problem hasn’t been approached in a fun way! What if the dog bags provided in parks and public places came with a flower seed. Dog walkers can then plant these corn starch bio-degradable bags in a public garden, turning each pile of poo into a flower! Here’s a way to put a positive spin on a dirty subject, one that both the dog walker and the public can enjoy!

Reusable coffe mug lottery

Reusable Coffee Mug Lottery

2009-12-07 14:48 - 0 Kommentarer

Statistics show that Americans alone devour over 400 million cups of coffee daily, going through 400 million paper cups in the process. Dumping, recycling or filling up landfills with these cups is a waste of time, energy and money. As a way to change people’s behavior and outlook on reusable mugs, institute a fun system where each reusable mug is assigned a coffee code, enabling them to win 1 of 10 daily prizes in every coffee shop, ranging from a muffin, scone or other pastry to a larger monthly prize.
