My idea for an invention is a huge interactive dance mat located at a park. The massive dance mat would play music for people to dance to and as you danced or stepped on the mat, it would active large water fountains that would squirt up water. Obviously the only way for the fountains to work would be if someone stepped or danced on the mat. People would also have access to the fountains and be able to walk or run through the fountains for fun.

How do you get people to wait at a red signal light? Waiting at a signal light is boring. But it's so easy to make it fun!
Just let people communicate at red signal lights via a "signal light phone". The phones are connected with other signal light phones in different cities. So people who never met before can have a conversation while waiting for the light to change.

You have a desk job and you are sitting all day long in a chair in front of the computer? We know a fast way to change that behavior. It’s called the elevator fun way. Take five and go celebrate a task you did well. Today you can use your break enjoying a couple of minutes of glory while taking the elevator. We are offering you an elevator fun way every working day. Saturdays and Sundays we are also climbing mountains. Take time for MORE FUN!

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.
Hasn’t driving to school for your whole life been sooo boring? Well not any more! A Chair Lift is solar powered, unlike cars, which makes them good for the environment! A Chair Lift will be used for school, and will have the name of the place your going to on it! They even go at a safe speed! If it is pouring rain or snowing just pull down the cover! 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
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.

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.

This is a simple but very sensible idea. Not only does it incorporate visuals but cross walks will now include sound to make them safer for people with impaired vision. When the button is pressed the speakers greet simply "You have activated the crosswalk" then following could be local weather, or simple facts about life that are updated from time to time. Ending it would say "It is now safe to cross. Thank you for your patience".
This would not only keep people from jaywalking and endangering other motorists, but also give them some knowledge. Inskickat av Trevor C. J. Ruff
Men hate throwing out trash. Until you combine a basketball hoop, a garbage can, and a high score together! Add a little sound effect of a cheering crowd that gets louder and louder with every consecutive piece of trash thrown in within a time limit. Maybe even add an announcer - 'He shoots... He scores! The crowd goes wild!

Public washrooms are not generally places known for being pleasant or hygienic. Part of the problem is people neglecting to flush the toilet after they have finished their business. This device will encourage toilet flushing with prompts and a prize (of the non-tangible variety). When a person enters the stall, a screen above the toilet will pose a question. These can range from riddles to true or false questions. The answer to the question will only appear once the toilet has been flushed (triggered by a cord, attached to the device).
En container/askkopp för utomhusbruk. Teknik: Snurraskkopp och snurreffekten genererar energi som driver en cylinder med tecknade fimpfigurer i olika positioner. Snurren ger illusionen av dans/piruett, en enkel filmteknik. I och med att rökning inte längre är tillåten inomhus så blir trottoarerna en stor offentlig askkopp vilket är både ett miljöproblem och en estetiskt förfulning av det offentliga rummet.

Many people read comics rather than reading dictionaries.. However, dictionary has more useful informations. So if we make the dictionary that is talking when we filp the page,or touching the book, than many people will rather read dictionary than comics. Submitted by Mom.
Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.
Tired of all the cigarettes on the ground? This simple system is the solution. People will just have to put their cigarette litter in the hole of the "box" and thanks to a proximity sensor, it will display a funny joke on the screen that will make the people happier for the rest of the day, and they will speak about this joke or this concept around them. Thanks to this, more and more people will throw their used cigarettes (or paper) in that box.
In the end, this will save the environment and will contribute to the people happiness. Inskickat av Fred Pigeard
Skin cancer is on the rise. Dermatologists have 2 big concerns: 1). People don't put on enough sunscreen 2). They don't reapply often enough. To raise awareness in a memorable way, FunScreen can be set up at public pools and beaches, either temporarily or permanently. A misting product (much like a spray tan), FunScreen offers full UVA/UVB coverage that is applied in a unique way. People stand beneath the FunScreen "shower head" and activate it by pulling a string. A highly danceable tune begins playing as the FunScreen sprays the person beneath.
Many people don’t like to ride in dangerous streets; I do think that nobody should take a risk of that. My solution is to make many streets FUN and at the same time to seem natural (green, brown and more). My opinion is that it should be colorful but at the same time natural.
Instead of making new streets with cement, with rocks! Because the rocks don’t contaminate and the cement hotter the day. The people will use more the fun streets than other ones that are worse. These fun streets I call “Natural Streets”.

The trees make the best patterns with their leaves. And then the kids, longingly, watch them through their car windows as they pass by. They imagine how big a leaf pile that many leaves could make. And the workmen & women, with their face masks and their heavy blowers 'clean up' the walkway and neaten the park with the sharp buuuuzzzzzz in the mourning aire, while the businessperson walks past, smelling the crisp tang of fall and gasoline and fried electric circuits. Blah. No fun.
