Munching chewing gums, can anything bring more fun?
Yes, giving it back! There are some bad news for all, who love to see, how shity people try to get rid of wet, gray, slimy and old gums under their shoes. From now on there is no possibility to see somebody twiddle with the gummy stuff. Thanks to the chewing gum machine! With the aid of light effects, sounds and loud colors it causes quite a stir.
For everybody who wants to have fun by using garbage cans!

All wheels turn. Save energy by creating a new form of hybrid that implements the concept of wind as a supplemental source of energy to make the vehicle run. Your hubcaps are the wind turbines, the propellers so to speak create the wind force needed and directed to narrow wind tubes that channel the wind generated by your moving tires to power your vehicle. Your reward is higher mileage for your gas usage.

Photocopiers are a point of high paper usage - and wastage. Most machines today offer double sided and reduced print but people do not use these facilities. Why?
1) its a little bit technically difficult (not a lot)
2)This takes time (which we think adds pressure)
3) there is no immediate financial cost to us (assuming the company pays)
4) there is no incentive
So... Lets design a USB add in monitor that shows "TREE HEAVEN"

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.
This recycling bin uses the sport of basketball to attract users. Everyone loves throwing trash at a trash can anyway, so why not make that the point of the can, rather than a side product? It will not only bring more use to the recepticle, but also make users more concerned about missing, and make them want to retry a bad shot, instead of leaving trash on the floor. The hoop, over the recepticle can also be oversized to help prevent missing.
The problem is ...when we go to fast food or any restaurant where the food is consume in containers of plastic or paper we produce lots or garbage that can be recycled but nowadays is just throw in litter bins without care if this is paper or plastic o organic garbage... and is boring to just throw it :( The proposed prototype is a funny recycling litter bin where you can throw your garbage but clasifiying it. The funny dump has a touch screen and when you recycle the screen show you a different puzzle that you can arm in few seconds depending of the puzzle.
In bathrooms, many people don't like using the hot hand dryers vs. the alternative paper towel. There has to be a way to make those more fun. Perhaps instead of just hearing air blow out of the thing, maybe music instead, and not just the same song over and over. Use different songs that many people will like. They might actually use the dryer longer so they can finish the song, thus drying their hands effectively.

En nyttig idé om hur hundbajs kommer till nytta! Bygg pantabajs-automater där bajset vägs och en summa pengar motsvarande bajsets vikt går direkt till välgörande ändamål såsom hundräddningscenter i sverige, ju mer hunden bajsar desto mer pengar blir det!

Every year millions of batteries get thrown into the garbage. It creates tons of garbage and the heavy metals contaminate the ground water. Batteries can easily be recycled, but not everyone does that. The solution is to make it fun to return batteries by using the children’s game ‘Tower of Pisa’. The goal of the game. The player has to add as many batteries to the different levels of the tower. Since the bottom of the tower has a slightly rounded form, the tower has a tendency to tip over if it is not properly balance.
In some countries people don't see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Soda Recycling-Vending Machine that will allow everybody to purchase a new icy soda by paying with their old cans! How it works? Once the machine has confirmed that is in fact a soda can (and no plastic or glass bottles for example) and the consumer has selected the drink, the old can goes to the inner container, the mechanism activates and the buyer gets a nice icy and refreshing soda!

"Save power, don't forget to turn off the light," we are told. And yet, often we do forget - for it's so easy to turn the light on, sometimes we don't even remember doing it. What if turning on the light required us to work a bit harder? And what if it was fun? The swing light exaggerates the familiar rope-switch light to emphasize the action of what we are doing when we turn on light, channeling electricity from far-off power sources. The stronger the pull, the brighter the light, the longer the pull, the longer the light stays on.
Make people to applaud in public! How?
Using 3D projector to create an environment that full of mosquitoes, when people walk into the area, they will try to hit mosquitoes by clapping hands, run and jump, the applaud will bring joy and healthy blood circulation. Everyone is free to dance with mosquitoes. Enjoy it.

This piggy bank is like your dog or your cat, it is alive and it needs you to take care of it. When it is moved or randomly, when it senses that somebody is around, it gets sad and calls your attention because it needs to be fed. For doing that, its owner has to feed it with a small random amount of money that will be taken from the credit card. The idea is that the owner has to take care of it, but at the same time, it will save money for you and put it in a separate savings account. This way, at the end of the month you'll always have some money you saved because of taking care of it.
A common problem on the highways is that lots of pedestrian cross the road among cars instead of using the footbridge. This behavior can result in accidents and running over. Would be possible to increase the number of people using the footbridge and to decrease the number of people that across among the cars by making the footbridge cross something funny? This is the objective of the “Magic Footbridge”.
“Simon Says Maybe A Free Ticket” is a large LED screen that flirts with possible participants by randomly giving compliments and to passer-byes to get their attention and make them smile.
The screen is connected to 5 sets of rubber footprints. When there are 5 pair of feet standing on them, the game gets automatically activated.
The 5 people are required to work together to memorize and repeat a 3 minutes dance step routine.
