The problem is that the mother’s that work a lot when they come from work they are so tired that they don’t have time to care there babies. The solution is that there could be a robot that can have teapots heater, also a pillow and their other hand is a blanket, also they know songs and bedtime stories. It could also have a television so that the child sees it. And it could also dance and have the same temperature as a human body. It could change the behavior of people that mother’s don’t get tired a lot. It could cost $500.00 dollars.

After every shopping tour, you get a bunch of small coins. The basic idea is to mount a big magnet on a street light or a building, which collects the magnetic 1,2 and 5-cent coins. Once a week the collected money will be removed and donated to a social institution or homeless people. Possible variations of the idea are: - a pair of balanced magnets; every week a new question will be shown where people can vote for one option - a machine that starts a special event once a certain amount of money (=weight) pulls on the magnet.
Wow! I am stuck in a traffic jam! Great! Why would anyone think that? You might think it’s only someone who is crazy or under the influence of alcohol… Let me reassure you that isn’t true. If you, like most everyone, find traffic jams annoying then you ought to use the Traffic Jam Fun Service. This service can turn a traffic jam into something fun and positive. And it is also good for the environment because bad tempered people can of course poison the atmosphere, whereas happy people do just the opposite. How can the Traffic Jam Fun Service achieve this?
Many people do not care about recycling and throw plastics/cans/paper/glass into the same, general purpose, rubbish bin. If we would add a fun incentive to it, their behaviour could change! Monitor your recycling and compete with other people in your recycling bin/your district/your town. Each time a person comes to the recycling bin, he enters his code & password and in this way lets the system know it's him.
Turning something icky into something pretty. The Gum Collector is a fun way to dispose of chewed gum without making a mess. It is a user friendly device that will keep out footphaths clean and no more sticky surprises under your seat. Gum Collectors could be placed in schools, at bus stops, on the street, train stations and pretty much anywhere. Inskickad av Yvette Messina.
People are sad and grumpy in the subway. There's probably no real reason to be so other than being tired or tired of waiting for the subway. However, you can be less grumpy or even smile if there is something to provoke it!
So, do you know the mirror reflection on the opposite window when you sit in the metro? That could be made into something that can light you up in a second:
- distorting mirrors: admit it, they are addicting!
- drawn figures with a mirror where your face is. A giant bug is so cute if the mirrored person has a beard!

Eco-friendly Bags are available since long in the markets. However, the use of such bags has been quite low owing to the low emotional value of the bags. for this reason tote bag with guitar graphic has been designed. This serves the dual purpose- one that of use of eco-friendly bags and the other, that of the bag being popular amongst youth and fun to carry.

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.
A bike that every time you paddle it sounds with harmonious music. Nowadays a lot of people use cars which produce carbon dioxide. People would chose to ride their bikes instead, enjoying a nice tune while saving the planet. An exercise bike with this function would help people take off some pounds of weight while having a nice time.

We asked ourselves, how we can help people have more fun walking to work. We decided to play hopscotch. The video submission depicts the results of our game. We chose the busiest intersection in the Philadelphia business community. We have learned that from Ghana to Cambodia, Peru to Iran, hopscotch is universally played and loved.

Air moves around us everyday and every breath we take flows through the atmosphere unseen. The Fun«Charger transforms the wind around us into immediately accessible electricity. In locations with dynamic air movement, like a subway station, the Fun«Charger encourages people to play with its moving parts. There is an array of colorful fins that spin with gusts of air. This rotational energy is then converted into electricity in front of spectators’ eyes. The Fun«Charger is an interactive experience that invites people to watch their breath generate energy.
To encourage people to walk more we need to develop comfortable joggers. As people nowadays are very much interested in i-pods these days what we need to do is develop joggers with musical players in them . THE PLAYER WILL ONLY WORK WHEN WHEN ONE IS WALKING WEARING THOSE JOGGERS and music would stop after couple of seconds as you stop. You can have a wide range of songs in your player. As you walk the battery/batteries of musical player would get charged so you need not to worry for that. You can control the play list, volume and other features using a pocket size remote control.
Since it is time of the major flu outbreak, hand washing has become such an important daily habit. Not only is it important to just wash your hands, but to wash them longer than 30 seconds which many fail to do. In light to this, it would be great if the mirror in front of us started to move and alter our physical features as soon as we turn on the tap. When pressing to get soap for it turns to colors so that we can see our selves in black and white as well as inverted colors etc. As soon as the tap is turned off the mirror would go back to normal.

We all seem to be in a rush, especially in busy metropolitan areas. In all aspects of this modern life, the temptation to cut corners and take shortcuts is too great. Pedestrians place themselves at great risk when they fail to use crosswalks just to shave a few seconds from their journeys.
Since 1975, over 180,000 pedestrians have been killed in motor vehicle accidents in the United States. The majority of pedestrian accidents occur at locations other than intersections. Jaywalking can be deadly.*
In today’s world services are measured in terms of money (currency)
But what about ‘good deeds’ done by people with no expectation of any monetary benefit but at some time the deed has value attached to it.You don’t expect money when you go out of your way to help an old man cross the road.
We will introduce a new global currency “Good deed” Currency. It will be printed solely by the sponsor company in the denominations of 5,10,20,50,100,500 & 1000.
They will be introduced among the public for distribution and circulation initially through NGO’s, charities, old age homes etc.
The Binny is an outdoor bin that gathers paper by engaging two different groups of people in a Recycling Battle. The Binny has two containers, one for each of the two competing groups of people, or the two teams. The first team to recycle a specified amount of paper wins the Battle. The Battle progress is shown on a Digital Display. All the paper gathered in The Binny is sent to a recycling center. Inskickad av Ana-Maria Tomescu.
In Brasil, people usually don't walk on Zebra walk to cross the streets. Thinking on it, I created a fun Zebra walking, The Rainbow Zebra. When the people step on the Zebra stripes, the spotlights turn on and the people will appear of the same color as the Zebra, it also plays a fun sound, like claps or disco music. It would make crossing the streets a fun activity :)

Have a giant basketball hoop over a plastics recycle been in any public high school. Like your glass recycler...have the hoop make noise and total points as drink bottles are recycled.
Same idea...different format. Big pinball type apparatus drop in recyclable at top it bangs off appropriate pinball type obstacles finally ca-chinging as it drops into the bin for requisite points.
