"Problem" to fix: People not waiting for you to get off the train and rushing to get in. Fun solution : to project on the floor quiz (and related solutions after a while), daily news or animations (or whatever catch people's attention) that to be watched or read push people to stand propertly in front of the projection and at the same time let people in getting off walking on a red carpet, projected as well.

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.
The Pitfall Crosswalk is inspired by classic Atari game Pitfall. The idea is to make it fun for people to cross the street in the right places. In cities such as mine, Rio de Janeiro, people have made dangerous crossing a habit. My wish is to influence people for their own good. Inskickad av Rafael Medeiros
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!

Över hela världen säljs miljontals kapsyler tillsammans med flaskor varje år. Flaskorna pantas men kapsylerna försvinner. Ett sätt att förhindra att de hamnar i naturen eller på fel ställe är att skapa en plats för dem att återanvändas i.
Ett sätt är att bygga ett spel på ”Kapsyl fyra i rad” där man använder kapsylerna för att spela med. Två lag kan spela mot varan – kanske efter man druckit upp ölen med kapsylerna – och använder sedan kapsylerna till att spela med. Ett kul sätt att göra något vettigt av kapsylerna. Varje liten del gör skillnad!

Freecycling is a fantastic way to pay it forward and to keep unused clothes from becoming landfill. The Karma Kalculator makes donating used clothes fun. It dispenses a fortune cookie style fortune to "predict" the good that will coming to them for the good that they have done.
Whenever drivers try to park the car within the borders , a jackpot sound is heard as in a slot machine. A graphic of the slot machine is placed. So people try to park it correctly. With this the parking behavior is changed for better. Inskickad av Manoj Manduva
Tracking in dirt, mud and water into public areas is potentially hazardous. However, wiping one's feet can diminish this problem. To encourage this simple act we have designed "DJ" This is a doormat that looks and feels just like any other boring doormat, yet it's fun and interactive for all! So, how could a doormat possibly be fun? It's simple: make that mat a mix board! When one rubs their feet on DJ (causing friction) it will "scratch" the music playing in the building just like a DJ would do in a club!
This is designed to stop people from littering the street with cigarette buts. It uses the game of chance to make people want to bin there cigarettes. It is a wall mounted ashtray with a fruit machine built in. When you put your finished cigarette in to the top of the ashtray it will start the game. You only get one try. You pull down the handle and spin the wheels, depending on how the wheels stop you will get a prize. The prize could be a piece of chewing gum, or a whole pack.

It would be good for the battle against climate change, if we could motivate multi-fuel car owners to really use the ethanol pump. So how can we make that experience more fun? If the drivers choose the ethanol pump, a group of highly efficient Pit Stop Engineers would do everything for him, just lika a real Formula One driver!

Problem: People tend to throw rubbish on the streets instead of garbage bins.
Fun Solution: To make throwing rubbish as fun as playing basketball we want to add a scoring machine and detector to the garbage bin. So, for every piece of rubbish that goes into the garbage bin, you get 2 points.

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! :)

Fight children obesity by motivating the children to exercise and save energy. When the children watch TV they do no exercise at all plus the added calories from the junk food they are eating. The TV plugs in to a motion sensor, if the children is moving the TV stays on, when the children stops moving the TV goes off. This way the children exercises and makes it very hard to eat junk food, also they save energy because the TV turns off when no one is in the room.

Every time you reuse this bottle (each time it is filled up again) a dimention of the art changes and the image gets more complex. The first time you use the bottle, a square appears, second time is 2 squares, each acting as individual pixles. It becomes less abstract each time it is used. This will encourage people to keep the same bottle for years just to see the imege change and grow into a piece of art. Reduce, reuse. Inskickad av Jenna Meath.
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.
It's art you can walk on! It would be like going to an art gallery with sunshine, bird song and in comfortable sneakers! I am proposing this installation as a means to get people active. It would manifest itself in the form of a locked glass-top box embedded into the ground with artwork inside. These could be fitted on popular and even obscure walking trails in and around the city that draw people back to walk them again and again to see what’s new.
Mexico has just pass through a scary disease and there has been some actions to prevent it with hand washing stations. We have tried to make more people wash their hands, with an attempt to make it more fun.

In major cities around the world pedestrians do not respect the red traffic light at road crossings and prefer to run carps, causing delays in traffic and sometimes even personal injury to themselves. Across the zebra crossing on both sides of the road there will be two identical installations comprised of a modified "push button and wait for signal" box. It will have a speaker set and music. When the button is pushed the pavement sticker starts the game. When the traffic light for pedestrians turns red, the music starts and the bubbles light up.
Waiting for the bus can be very stressful. First: the bus is never on time. Second: some bus stops don't have any place to sit down and wait. Thinking about that and a way to make it more fun, we came up with the idea of a "Tire-Swing Bus Stop".
The Problem: Our world is being contaminated by many things. One of them is batteries. Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when batteries are improperly disposed. Batteries may produce potential problems or hazards like pollute the lakes and streams as the metals vaporize into the air when burned. Also expose the environment and water to lead and acid and more.Solution: I invented “The Battery Can”. This “Battery Can” can be used by adults, but it is much more fun for kids!!
