Cars vs Bikes

2009-12-16 16:04 - 0 Kommentarer

What is the matter? We would like people to realize that biking is also a solution.
But how? It is as easy as a counting machine! The purpose of the machine is to count how many bikers and drivers pass by in a day. The placement would be crucial. It has to stand in between a bicycle path and a street so that people could realize how many cars have passed in comparison with bikes. The trend would be shown on a graphic. Who will act to make it go the “right” way?

The Magic Bin

2009-12-16 09:41 - 0 Kommentarer

Wouldn't be cool to see magic bins down the street where you can throw your litter and at the same time having fun by asking them questions? "Will I be ever be a famous actor?", "Is Mary in love with me?" etc. Everytime you throw a litter in the bin, its force enables a small gear to spin which eventually makes the screen of the bin show the answer of your question!

Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Inskickat av Simon Scherer.

Low Speed Control

2009-12-16 16:00 - 0 Kommentarer

What is the matter? We would like people to respect driving speed limits. But how? By reverting the concept: let’s reward the people who drive below the speed limit. Two ways for rewarding. After a radar control: 1) You get a chance to win a free car-wash (or so). 2) A special lightning effect occurs 50 meters behind the checkpoint, which allows you to see a monument or a building. (Or a fountain would pop out). Seb on behalf of the CI. Inskickat av Sebastien Morant

Soap Busters

2009-12-15 21:03 - 0 Kommentarer

For the prevention of H1N1 flu, the guidelines stress washing one's hands with SOAP. Yet, some people in public bathrooms ignore the soap dispensers. They either skip washing their hands, or they merely rinse them in water. We propose posting above the soap dispensers a sign saying, "USE SOAP to COPE with H1N1". The soap dispensers would be equipped with a motion-triggered recording emitting a "Thank you" -- each “Thank you” in a different language.

Stop pedaling for nothing! With this devise while you’re riding a training bike you activate a fan which keeps you fresh and cool while you’re doing your daily workout.

Fun<<Charger

2009-12-16 14:44 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

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

Smile Therapy

So many gloomy faces can be seen nowadays on bus, tram, we can meet angry car drivers and rushing masses on the streets. One smile can break this negative wave. Smiling is good to our body and soul, and it also generates a chain reaction: if you smile to someone, he will instinctively smile back. The theory is that a chocolate automat is working with smile. The core of the automat is a face recognizing software that decides if someone smiles or not. Also with this program only one chocolate per person could be given. Inskickat av Edit Tangl.

GPS with Personality

2009-12-15 20:51 - 0 Kommentarer

Everybody knows this: A destination and navigationsystem. After a few minutes the navi bothers everybody, always the same instructions from the same voice in a boring tonality. This combination has an ominous impact, the driver gets bored or nervous and looses the concentration. Here comes the funny idea: A navi which acts like a human being. It gives you positive feedback for choosing the right way ("Well done!") and also wiggings for the wrong way if you like ;-) You can choose the personality of your navi. So the driver gets a good feeling and the journey becomes a pleasure!

The Re:ramid of Chops

2009-12-03 11:59 - 0 Kommentarer

A long tube built into a slider leading from a side easy insertion level to a point just over cone leading to the base centre. At top in interior is a mangle crusher feeding into and old paper shredder. You 'load' PEP bottles into the tube. You then slide it upright (using screwed in 330ml bottle handles) to drop into the cone. This action activates the blade, only once the tube is well out of reach. The shredder drops the shards into a cone-shaped pile.

Fighting Germs with Fun

2009-12-15 18:45 - 0 Kommentarer

One of the most common ways that illnesses such as flu are spread is through the germs on our hands. Hand sanitization is therefore a simple way to help prevent transmission of illness. Universities and restaurants in our area have installed hand sanitizers to help encourage hand cleaning, but few people actually use them. As a result, illnesses can rapidly spread across university campuses. We decided to apply the Fun Theory to this problem by testing whether we could get more people to sanitize their hands by making it fun.

Grumpy Subway

2009-12-16 18:35 - 0 Kommentarer

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!

Chore Bore

2009-11-19 11:44 - 0 Kommentarer

Chore Bore is a device designed to help parents and kids get the chores done with some fun! Simply record a pleasant message of yourself reminding your child of their task, set a time, push the big button and walk away. Perky, upbeat music will play with soft and playful lights. As the time ticks on, the music becomes more dire, the lights blink more frantically and the parents voice will become louder and weirdly warped. If the child completes the task before the time runs out, an alarm will demand a reward! However.... If the timer runs out, an alarm will demand punishment!

Hop'n'win

Idea: Hopscotch Lotto. Why not design a special interactive Hopscotch that would encourage adults to exercise and sometimes to win prizes? For example, players would hop from one square to another (similar to numeric keypad principle) in order to create a winning sequence of digits. Here’s how it would work: let’s say the secret winning number consists of 16 digits, i.e. 4698001738372349. That means that each player should make 16 random jumps and if the sequence of numbers matches the winning number 4698001738372349, the player gets a reward. Locations: shopping malls, playgrounds, etc.

Giggle-Tickle Stress Bracelet

2009-12-16 21:08 - 0 Kommentarer

Most of us struggle with stress. Stress sucks. We feel like it creeps up on us. But it’s hard to fix before it kicks in. We feel like we need to keep it to ourselves. But then we feel alone dealing with it. And all this stresses us out more. Understandably. What if “stress tools” were; positive ideally, humorous? Powerful part of a bigger movement? Present prompting our constant awareness and action? Private when we need and want to be discreet? Public when we need and want support? So like, what if a bracelet could help us learn to de-stress every moment?

Idag är det för enkelt att skänka pengar, så enkelt att det blir tråkigt. Så vi gör det svårare och med chans att fördubbla sitt bidrag.
Vi ställer upp en vägg på en offentlig plats, där får du kasta dina mynt. Prickar du ett hål är du en riktig lirare, dina pengar fördubblas. Missar du gör det inte så mycket för dina pengar blir ändå en fin donation. Det fina med det hela är att du får välja vilken organisation du vill donera till (om du är stadig på handen). Dessutom skulle man kunna lägga till extra detaljer som att sätta en saftblandare på toppen eller någon slags fanfar, om
