This is a special box for collecting used batteries. You can put one normal battery of any kind into the "start" hole, then the game begins. When you roll the handle, the maze plate revolves. You just need to find the the right way to exit for your battery as soon as possible. A record of the least time will be shown on the top. Through this amazing Battery Maze, people would like to collect used batteries spontaneously. Inskickat av Golden Guo
Many people like to walk in the park and eat without washing their hands. This is clearly a hygienic issue. The solution: Place hand washing labyrinths in the parks. A person must find his/her way through the labyrinth to reach the different stages of hand washing like soaping, washing and drying.

The idea consists in using gravity to make an escalator without using electrical energy.
It can be used in a place where people want to go up and down, like the entrance of a subway.
We concentrate people that want to go down in a platform, then the people that want to go up stay in another platform .
These platforms are connected by pulleys in order to guarantee that the weight of people wanting to go down will generate enough potential energy to move the platform with people that want to go up.
The balance can be upheld by cords, that people can pull to control the movement.

Tracking in dirt, mud and water into public areas is potentially hazardous. However, wiping one's feet can diminish this problem. To encourage this simple act we have designed "DJ" This is a doormat that looks and feels just like any other boring doormat, yet it's fun and interactive for all! So, how could a doormat possibly be fun? It's simple: make that mat a mix board! When one rubs their feet on DJ (causing friction) it will "scratch" the music playing in the building just like a DJ would do in a club!
Imagine every car you see on road is fitted with a little device I would like to name “Gotcha”!! This is like a black box which is hidden away in every car (will be good fun trying to find it!) . “Gotcha” is nothing more than a combination of receiver and sender unit with inbuilt GPS. The receiver unit of “Gotcha” receives a signal from a tower (similar to mobile network tower) which constantly sends road speed and location data to all vehicles in its range.

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.
I thought of a sequence of thick tiles, made up of four buttons, each of which gets illuminated when a person stops on it. It could be a system of weight sensors.
The whole scheme could also include a turnstile at the end of the path. The rotation of this turnstile should make the colors, illuminating the tiles, change. All these changes could catch the attention of other people coming.
The people exercise to burn calories and become more fit. Various exercise machines are used, such as bikes and elliptical equipment. Weights, wheels, springs, magnets etc. are used to create resistance. Burning calories is not always fun and it is energy wasted in vain. However, if we use electrical generator to create the resistance in the exercise equipment, than our exercise can be used to produce electrical energy. Imagine a gym full of rotational and elliptical equipment and the electricity that can be produced when the gym is full.
Because pedestrian injuries have become a public health problem severity, sequelae and disabilities which generate, ranking first from the last nine years in deaths from traffic injuries. The primary objective is: Encourage the use of pedestrian bridges in the town of Jiutepec in a fun and entertaining changing the concept of using the bridge with a project called THEORY OF FUN.

People often forget to flush after using the public toilet, then left bad impression to the next user. Instead of normal flushing handle, it’s a slot machine. When you pull it down, it will start rolling and with the sound of coins falling. And see how luck you are this time. Inskickad av City Yeast.
As a society, we are disengaged from our future (i.e. we don't work together to bring about social change more often and more forcefully). We also strongly believe that the main reason for this is the fact that we are built to discount issues that we are not immediately connected with (either in terms of time or in terms of location). What we propose is that we use technology to break down this artificial barriers we create in our mind between us and our future and between us and the rest of the world.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, between their morning and afternoon runs, a group of Bus Drivers from Broward County Schools, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, take a ride themselves. The "Wellness Bus" transports the drivers from their worksites to Body Mechanics, a local gym that participates in the employee free gym membership benefit for school board employees. They excercise, receive complimentary personal training services, belly dance, stretch, and do Pilates.
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!

People often walk on the track intended for bicycles, thus jeopardizing the safety of both them and bicycle riders.
Additionally people do not exercise enough. Walking and running are considered to be very healthy, but mostly people are bored to do so. The change of rhythm while doing these activities is extremely important.
I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.
