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.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the only monster that does good for humanity, man and his pets. This monster asks to be fed exclusively with animal droppings, opening his mouth a sensor makes speek the monster making so gracious speeches to be fed, in his mouth is a receptacle where it is deposited the bag with excrement, this receptacle is integrated on a scale that senses the weight of the excrement, and according to the weight the monster will say funny things, low weight - is that all? better go and feed your pet! A little more weight - I am more hungry! go get more!
Instead of putting chewing gum here and there people can be encouraged to stick it within a certain pattern on the walls to create graffiti, mural or any other kind of wall art. Someone needs to start the process by perhaps drawing an outline on the wall and sticking the first few pieces. People will stick chewing gum of different shapes, sizes and colors creating exciting and unpredictable results. People can ignore the outlines also to create an evolving art form, growing and changing with every new contributor. Inskickat av Prithu Paul
People tend to pass doormats in public entrances without actively cleaning their shoes. This is a problem, especially in winter, since the shoes are more dirty during the rainy season. The aim was to motivate people opening slide doors with funny and unusual movements. Therefore we combined the unlock mechanism of a fruit labeled communication device with a doormat. Not only tech savvy pedestrians used the mat, but also average people adopted the unlock mechanism intuitively.

We all are humans and therefore we have different opinions on Everything. From the smallest detail to the future of mankind. We like to discuss things and we like to be given chance to express our opinion. And there is nothing wrong with that. If only we could do something good while loudly expressing ourselves. Welcome to Earth Vote For Everyone! The bigger skeptic of global warming you are the more fun you will have by switching of the light. Remember, every vote counts!

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?
Men här är lösningen! Smutsräknaren! Ett dammsugarmunstycke med räknare på vilket gör att såfort du dammsugit upp damm eller annan smuts så får man poäng! Poängen visas sedan på en display på dammsugarmunstycket. När du dammsugit klart kopplar du upp dammsugarmunstycket mot datorn och internet. Poängen överförs till en personlig räknare på en hemsida, den som har flest poäng i slutet av varje månad vinner! Inskickat av Johan
Cycle in the city is a good thing! We intend to promote the use of bikes in the city. More bikes mean fewer cars in the streets and a more beautiful city. The way to promote the use of bikes is simple! The local administration gives the bikers an odometer. The bikers who are moving in the city, augment the kilometres in the odometer. When the bikers want, comes back to the local administration and shows the kilometres they made. The local administration gives some gifts to the bikers such as services, tax deductions, theater tickets etc. In relation to the kilometres they made.
In time for Copenhagen, CO2 Emissions and Global Warming are flamboyant topics of our century and will, sooner or later, demand our commitment. While it is difficult to reach global agreements of a big scale, it is easy to contribute individually by changing our behavior - and act as role models and messengers to policy makers. Street traffic accounts for around 20% of global CO2 emissions. Yet, a significant share of these emissions is generated while not moving at all, e.g. in front of red lights or traffic jams. In other words, it is completely wasted.
Let’s make it fun to scoop dog poop! “Lucky Dog” will be a dog-shaped garbage bin that when used will bark at the user and issue a fortune cookie dog treat with the dog’s fortune for the day. Lucky Dog fortunes could include “You will be receiving a treat in the near future. Lucky Dog!” and “Dog-butt ahead. Lucky Dog!” A bag dispenser could be a source of income or simply free to encourage pick-ups. Since dog walks happen near meal times, restaurants could advertise on the bin or cookie wrapper. They could say something like “Congratulations!
This is for the checkouts in supermarkets. The dividers on the transport belt are put in a gully by the cassier. This is at the end of the transport belt, but the dividers tradionally are needed at the beginning. By giving the dividers a sound of people enjoying a ride (little child on bicycle, people in rollercoaster) people will be stimulated to slide the divider to the beginning of the transport belt. Additionally there can be a disappointed noise when the divider is taken out of the gully and a very scared sound when it slides the wrong way.
The idea is made to solve the issue of people crossing the street on the red light. In my project the crosswalk is made from lighting floor panels which activate when you step on them. When the light is red they are in normal white colour, but when it turns green and someone steps on them, they change the colour. It would be very helpful because a lot of people don't wait for the green light and they risk their own and others' lives just to go few seconds faster.

The main problem of the green grocery bag is that people forget it at home. We wanted to change the mindset of shoppers when it comes to bags: today it costs them in Toronto 5 cents for every plastic bag. It is obvious that a cost is not a deterrent of forgetfulness. We want them to think of the green bag in terms of savings. To that effect we are proposing a grocery bag that you can stick velcro grocery list items on. This saves the shopper time from having to write a list or call their spouse to tell them what they need to buy. It also saves their sanity because.
Close driving is one of the greatest hazards on the road. Sometimes, because of distractions or lack of depth perception, people aren't even aware of how close they are to another driver or object. The Proximity Stereo detects when a driver is coming up too quickly on another object or car, and switches the music in the car to something the driver does not want to hear, not allowing the driver to return to his or her favourite music until the driver has backed off to a safe distance from the object.

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.
An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.
In several of the hallways connecting terminals in airports, you can lay down strips of small "speed bumps" in a precise pattern. When rolling bags roll over these strips of small little bumps, the thudding of the wheels will make the rhythm that is written on the floor (i.e. tango, samba, salsa etc). Some of these strips will be "partner" rhythms, where it takes two or more people walking at the same pace to make the beat.
