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.
Bored with your music? Plug your headphones into the radio system and listen to other people's music. Or DJ your own tracks and get talking with other listeners. If someone tunes into to your show, your light flashes. The more people you have listening, the hotter your light's colour. If you like what you hear, why not say hello to your DJ, they're sitting on the same bus!

Can we encourage cleanliness with a simple bit of fun?
Our idea makes hand-washing fun! Stepping on a pressure pad in front of the sink starts the bass and drums, turning the tap adds another layer of music, and pressing the soaps adds the final layer of music.

Make the sorting of the garbage fun by making it a competition between the neighbours, the street you live on, the city or even the whole country. This garbage container will scan the trash and determining how good it is sorted. You will be able to have your own ”garbage sorting average” and compare it to your friends or the neighbour. This container for plastic will scan the garbage bag you put in and give you a sorting score.
There are symbols to almost everything: gay community, luck, breast cancer, aids and more. So, why not a icon to represent the Fun Theory? An icon to be seen everywhere, all the time: in T-shirts, sticks, stamps, magazines, outdoors, pins, signs, the moon!!! Something universal, clean, strong, inspiring, to really make a statement. Like the smilie face, but in royal blue. It is positive reinforcement linked to other subjects such as driving, eating, the environment, people, love, health or safety. The idea has been out there for years, but there is a need for a concrete message.
Folk föredrar ofta att ta bussen även om man bara ska en liten sträcka som man lika gärna kunde ha gått. På så sätt missar man den extra motion man skulle ha fått.
Om man skulle skapa en cykelbuss som ser ut som en vanlig buss men har trampor under alla säten skulle man både bidra till att fler motionerade samt att utsläppen skulle bli noll.

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!

By addressing the growing hazards of the H1N1, the common flu, and germs in general, A Good “Clean” Joke creates a fun and eye catching experience at an otherwise boring hand sanitizer station. Hand sanitizer stations have been popping up all over the world in public and private facilties alike. Unfortunaetly, they seem to have one major drawback… nobody uses them. Even in cafeteries, people eat their food without using designated hand cleaning stations less than fifteen feet away. A Good “Clean” jokes hopes to prevent this by supplying not just cleanliness, but laughter.
When flying, people tend to get bored and jet-lagged. This solution would provide passengers with fun competitive video games. In every plane seat, there would be a portable game system that lets passengers play video games, live, against other passengers on the same plane. There would be a high-scores list that shows which seat/person has the highest score. For people who do not wish to play, the system would also have a chat-room where passengers could chat with other passengers about their destination.
BAD BEHAVIOR: Adults or children who leave their clothes lying around the floor or bathroom. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: Design and place a device on top of the clothes basket. This device will register clothing as it goes through the "hoop" similar to basketball. The more clothing that goes into the hoop the more points a family member receives. A biometric reader could be installed to recoginize the particular family member using the device and an electric eye could be used to score more points based on the distance of the shooter.

In many countries people enters the bus form its front door, making it easier for the driver to identify if there's an elder person getting in. People don't always give away their seats to an elder. The idea here is that when the driver sees an elder he will activate the ELDER SHAKE! button, making all the seats to shake a little bit to let people know they should give away their seat(s) to an elder person.

When it is raining, most of the big scale shopping malls would place an "umbrella plastic bag stand" at the entrances, prevent the wet umbrellas bring the water to make the floor slippery. Even it would prevent accidents, but it produces loads of plastic bags in a very short time when the customers leave the mall.
Instead we can use Dog the dryer!
Bigger umbrella can use a bigger size dog.
Smaller dog for a rather short umbrella.
Just simply place the wet umbrella into the dog body,
grab the tail of th dog, then,
Using Augmented Reality technology, our project is to make the crossing street only in crosswalk a fun habit. With two video cameras and two big screens, the crosswalk will be filmed on-line, the pedestrians will see their own images on screen, in front, stepping in exciting scenarios during the crossing, in both directions.
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.
