Musical Rake

2009-11-24 16:28 - 0 Kommentarer

How about a rake that plays music only when you are raking leaves or other debris. It can play at various tempos and beats depending on how hard or fast the rake is being pulled against the ground. It could have many different setting, so that you can make multiple musical notes. A great way to get exercise while doing yardwork at the sametime in a fun way.

Hopping To Work

2009-12-15 21:52 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

The Dirty Truth

2009-12-15 22:48 - 0 Kommentarer

Many people do not wash like they should after using the lavatory. Growing concerns over bacteria causing illnesses (i.e. SWINE flu, Common colds) and just plain nastiness are on everyone’s minds.

The Musical Sink

2009-12-15 16:28 - 0 Kommentarer

Can we encourage cleanliness with a simple bit of fun?
Our idea makes hand-washing fun! Stepping on a pressure pad in front of the sink starts the bass and drums, turning the tap adds another layer of music, and pressing the soaps adds the final layer of music.

There will be 2 small sensors in the recycling bin that will detect rubbish or Movement and once triggered it will activate the speaker which will then say “Thanks.” but then will say an interesting fact like “ You have just saved the average person 10% of work of making a coke can or crisp packet or something the same and that will go far to be used by someone else or you never know it could end up that you drinking out of the same can you have used before”.

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!

Counter tap

2009-12-16 10:18 - 0 Kommentarer

To conscience is the most effective way to changing every day customs. Small and repetitive gestures of daily life are the ones that have more impact. So the key is to reeducate habits and change people´s behaviours.
The idea is to put a counter or scorer on the tap water , basin and shower, sink.. to show you the amount of water you use and if it possible to use less obtainig the same result. To put a comparative of the litres you have used with a shocking data of what could have been done with the wasted water.

The Karaoke bus

2009-12-16 09:36 - 0 Kommentarer

Can you make more people use the public transport? What if a bus would have an interactive karaoke system? This bus would know how many people would be inside it and would light or make a sound either on the seat or on the handle where a person would be located. This would mean that it the person would be the one to sing. Screens would be located in different places in side the bus. This could be an attraction to make more people leave their cars at home and at the same time arrive work with a smile!

Sliding Staircase

2009-11-23 16:51 - 0 Kommentarer

Every city has at least a slope. Why don't take advantage of the landscape to minimize the use of cars in the city and improve people health? By adding slides, it could be possible to change people's behaviors and the way they move in the city. Depending on the location of the slides, it could be a time saver for people living in hilly cities such as San Fransisco, Lausanne, Quebec, Rio de Janeiro just to name a few. The Sliding Staircase could change the rythm of simply doing the task of walking. It could split it by bringing short periods of fun through a transportation routine.

Learn with comics!

2009-12-16 19:00 - 0 Kommentarer

I remember myself strugling to learn things that I found terribly uninteresting at the time. 15 years later and the same thing happens to the new students. I have a solution for this. Just transform the chapter of your book into a comic right after the lecture! If the teacher is good in drawing can he/she draws the comic on the whiteboard! The students will be delighted to learn history or any other subject that way, is there any greater plot than real history? They can add colours in special events or make a whole book of comics! Anything is possible when you have fun!

An interesting bike concept that offers a great doze of exercise as well as a funny experience through which you can measure your energetic potential.

The concept is simple: the electricity produced while pedaling is collected and can feed up various electric devices. The scientific application has been around for quite a while now but how many times was it transposed into an application that would also generate fun?

Fireworks Ashtray

2009-12-15 23:30 - 0 Kommentarer

Most of the people who smoke don't really take care where they throw their cigarette buds. Although there are enough public ashtrays and especially downtown and in pedestrian zones, people still throw their buds on the street. Our idea is to get their attention with lights and sound, by installing a heat sensor on the ashtray plate and connecting it to LED lights formed in the shape of fireworks, and a small speaker. As the cigarette touches the ashtray, the heat sensor will send trigger the lights, and the sound.

Concert Traffic Light

2009-12-03 14:48 - 0 Kommentarer

People are crossing the streets and ignoring the traffic lights every day. Why? Maybe they don't have much time, they don't care or they just don't want to wait. Probably because it's no fun to wait. But what if there is a fun way to wait? This is where the "concert-traffic-light" comes in. In front of a traffic light there is a floor sticker with electrical sensors underneath. Each sensor stands for a position in an orchestra, e.g. a violin. By standing on one sensor this particular instrument begins to play.

My proposal for the problem of abandoned and broken glass in public places of meeting is inspired to Bruno Munari's projected painting and at the same time to a popular game of our childhood: the kaleidoscope. So, throwing the glass bottles in a special container made of a "glass crusher" and of a suitable projector, we can create several compositions subsequently. A downright "open work" in continuous transformation thanks especially to the people - often young people - that won't be anymore "only" responsible citizens not polluting, but also active part and creators of pictorial works.

Fun Speeding Feedback

2009-12-15 17:20 - 0 Kommentarer

My idea is to have markings on the road that when seen by the driver of an approaching vehicle appear to change shape at a precise speed. For instance a car approaching markings positioned at a 20mph speed limit at 20mph +/- 2mph, instead of seeing a random set of dots and lines would see a smiling face or other appropriate graphics. The fun element of this is that the graphic would be different not only for different speed limits but also for different locations so there would always be an incentive to drive within the limit to see which graphic would appear.

Clapping

2009-12-16 14:48 - 0 Kommentarer

The problem is that people are lazy and do not want to walk and stand up from their seats. We can make a control that when you clap it turns on anything electronic device that you want will turn on or off.
It will be fun.

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.

Yes-U-CAN

2009-12-16 16:56 - 0 Kommentarer

Standard Recycling bins are often used inappropriately or not used at all, but 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 flies 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

Shining darkness

2009-12-15 14:52 - 0 Kommentarer

People always forget to turn the lights off. We need to do something about it. So we came up with an idea to make the darkness glow. We think you could hire artists to use glow-in-the-dark paint to paint walls of schools and public buildings. That would encourage people to turn off the lights even when they are working in the room. If you use clear glow-in-the-dark paint you would have to turn off the lights to see the pretty pictures. It would save alot of energy.

Daphne, the funny Waste Paper Bin will help us! When we think about recycling, waste paper recycling is perhaps one of the first areas that springs to mind as many of us have been doing this for many years. Waste paper recycling covers a wide variety of different types of paper. We can recycle newspapers, magazines, junk mail, office paper, holiday brochures, catalogues and white directories (e.g. phone books).
