En lampknapp med en sensor som aktiveras när man lämnar rummet och samtidigt sjunger ett litet visa. På så sätt påminns du om att du ska släcka den. Du släcker den sedan genom att sjunga samma visa tillbaka.

The idea is to make people to wipe the public chairs with fun. It’s the chair with the touch screen function which, the trash and dirty words will appear more and more when it is not wiping. When people wipe the chair, the trash and dirty words will disappear. Inskickad av Agua Chou
It often happens when you are working on your computer that it suddently crashes. This is pretty frustrating, isn't it? You would like to punch your computer or throw it away... this would relieve you of your frustration. From now on, with the computer airbag you can actually do it. Feel more relaxed, relieve your rage against your machines! :)

Each Spaniard consumes 3 kilos of chewing gum every year. The cost of removing each one of these rises up to 0.68 cents, more than twice its purchase cost. That’s why we propose a funny campaign to prevent people from littering chewing gum. Goal: To prevent people from littering chewing gum and put it in a common place instead, so that the streets of the city remain clean. How? The idea is to create huge, collective sculptures with people’s chewing gum.
Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Inskickad av Gilles Bonifait.
The world is in a very critical stage. There are lot of issues like global warming , scarcity of resources and others which the future generations have to face the effects. My design is an attempt to raise the awareness and encourage more people to choose sustainable and environment friendly options like cycling. A board bearing the illustrations of a tree and earth is placed beside the cycling track , which has leaves fitted with green colour LEDs. There are pressure sensors placed on the cycling track , which detects the passing cycle and lights up the Green LEDs on the tree board.
Encourage the choice of nutritional snacks. We are inundated with vending machines peddling unhealthy snacks. We propose to place a "Dance for Healthy Snacks" vending machine adjacent to a normal "candies and chips" vending machine. In both cases persons would pay a flat fee (e.g. 50 cents) for a snack item. The difference is that the "Dance for Healthy Snacks" requires the snack selection to be done via a dancing game. Rather than selecting a snack by pushing a button ("G2"), you have to dance on the footpad -- following the onscreen queues -- to successfully select the snack item.
People do not move and they ar weakly.

Have you ever notice that: when people open the tap, do they use the water or just do something like brush their teeth or stylish their hair but open the tap without conscious. They just unconsiously waste the water resource. We need something can remind them: you should be awareness of saving the water. We would like to design a tap built in a “bomb”. When people open the tap, they must wash their hands and turn off it within 7 seconds. Otherwise, the led display shall show explosion and sound serious warning.
This happens to many people day in day out. You take the dog for a quick walk, and then the inevitable happens. The dog needs a poo. You have to bend down near all the smells, and pick it up with a glove etc. But knowone wants to touch it, its revolting and there is easier ways. I have come up with an idea that allows you to NOT bend down near the smells to pick it up. It also allows you to NOT to physically touch it. But what it does allow you to do is have FUN, yes thats right, have FUN.
The “Conscious Shower” is an alternative to reduce the amount of water spent in the shower in a fun way. To do that, a water meter has to be installed in the shower. It’s necessary to set up an amount of water enough for a shower (eg. 40 liters). So it will be possible to check in a screen how much water is being spent during the shower.

This is an idea for sinks that will sense the movement of a person washing there hands which will then affect the music playing in the restroom. Examples could include beat mods, scratching, loop play, pitch change, tempo control, etc (cross your eyes to match the pictures of the sink and view in 3d). Inskickad av Matt Vaughan.
If you run out of power in the street, it can be inconvenient, or you can buy disposable batteries. This hand powered generator has a number of plugs you can use to charge your portable devices, for a greener, more efficient lifestyle! Inskickad av Matthew Venn.
My 82 year old mother will never own a laptop or a cellphone, but she does have a television. The only technology most households on earth have in common is television. There should be a TV network devoted to sending and receiving messages and this would be called the Communication Station.
Here's how it would work:
- Grandma is watching the Nightly News. Suddenly a flashing envelope appears in the corner of the screen.
- Using the special remote control she received when she signed up for the Communication Station, she clicks on the envelope to open it.
Statistics show that Americans alone devour over 400 million cups of coffee daily, going through 400 million paper cups in the process. Dumping, recycling or filling up landfills with these cups is a waste of time, energy and money. As a way to change people’s behavior and outlook on reusable mugs, institute a fun system where each reusable mug is assigned a coffee code, enabling them to win 1 of 10 daily prizes in every coffee shop, ranging from a muffin, scone or other pastry to a larger monthly prize. Not sold on using mugs from the shop? Have a favorite mug?
I could see that the people always prefer the electric doors then the normal doors because the electric doors always open themselves and the normal doors you have to push or pull. My idea is that when someone open the normal doors it will have a camera that takes your picture and when you open it, the picture will appear on a big screen which will say welcome to you! It will be fun to see your picture on a big screen. Inskickat av Alejandro Valladares.
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.

Är du stark nog? Spelet är inte nytt men syftet! Ett problem i många länder är att tomburkar slängs i naturen eller på andra platser där de inte hör hemma. Kan vi bygga en maskin där burken bli själva spelmarken? I det här spelet är det din styrka som sätts på prov.
Du placerar en gammal tomburk på plattan och slår med släggan. Om du lyckas slå tomburken ända upp så krossas den och du får ditt namn på en high-score lista beroende på hur hårt du slår. Samtidigt trillar burken ner i en återvinningstunna. På så sätt får du träning, har kul och gör något bra för miljön!
People don't pay for parking tickets in most of cases, at least here in Romania... To resolve this problem, I have thought, to make parking ticket machines interactive. Like You can see on my sketch, on the top of the parking ticket machine is a photo camera, which is in permanent contact with a face warp software. The camera takes the shout, the software makes hes job, so, on the parking ticket everybody can see a cartoon about himself. I think, much more people would pay for parking in this way.
