I want to arise the awareness of the fact that everyone needs to feel they've been needed, and it's ok to admit we're needy sometimes. To do that, I made two "needy objects", they need the owner's attentions to make them work. One is an alarm clock, to stop the alarm, the owner needs to hug it. The other one is a speaker, the volume will go crazy when the owner is not around. The owner needs to pet it to make it calm down. To see more: http://ineedyoutoneedme.com. Inskickad av Elim Cheng.
Many of us throws in the trash or in public places the free daily newspapers. We can change this with a funny recycling attitude. With Newspaper Style you are not just rewarded with a good conscience, you also can express your opinions of the news with a big smile. Inskickad av Sandra Reyes.
A problem to be solved in Argentina and probably in other countries, is that people who finish a bus, train, a highway or metro trip throw away their tickets on the station or on the street. Most of the tickets are made in paper
Can we get more people to throw tickets into a special machine, rather than on the ground, by making it fun to do ??
I think we can. And we solve two problems at once.
We can install special machines inside the main stations ( see graph ) where people must
1 ) Insert their ticket in the right slot ( e.g. subway ticket in subway slot ).
Can you make people less grumpy while waiting in the queue? The idea is to take advantage that the ticket is printed with a number and add some jokes, riddles or funny quotes. In case of a riddle when the person gets to be called to the desk the answer is revealed. Inskickat av Rui Miguel Conde
A holographic picture is layed on the bottom of buses, such that it can't be seen from any angle. Only when the person is standing the picture can be seen. Thus, by making the picture interesting for younger people there will be seats enough for the older people to sit down. The picture may convey an interesting story for the young, but an uninteresting story for the old. For example, short jokes (like Garfield) or simply pictures of beautiful women are well suited.

Treadmills and exercise bikes at the gym are a great way for people to work
out regardless of the conditions outside. The problem is that they're boring
and monotonous, and there's no incentive to push yourself (unlike running
outside, when there's always someone to try to catch up to).
The solution: Treadmill Racing.
Network a series of treadmills and exercise bikes so that each one knows how
fast its user is running/pedaling in relation to the other users. Project
this data on a big-screen "track" in the front of the gym so that the gym
Here you can see some pictures from a charity action I organized with the members of the school charity organization in the ational High School for acient languags andcultures in Bulgaria. This is an organization which I created and which work with children in trouble, orphas and od people and also we have a lot of loal area projects for making people understand theneed of oluntary acts and social change, a small step for a world with much more smiles and positive acts. This action included 20 students fromthe High school which were divided tothree groupswith one clown in each.
Cycle in the city is a good thing! We intend to promote the use of bikes in the city. More bikes mean fewer cars in the streets and a more beautiful city. The way to promote the use of bikes is simple! The local administration gives the bikers an odometer. The bikers who are moving in the city, augment the kilometres in the odometer. When the bikers want, comes back to the local administration and shows the kilometres they made. The local administration gives some gifts to the bikers such as services, tax deductions, theater tickets etc. In relation to the kilometres they made.
We are supposed to collect the dogs excrements in the park. We should collect them all into the little bag and then throw the bag into the bin. What if there would be a special machine by the dogs bin, giving the morsel to the dog every time we bring the "delivery"? After some time maybe the dogs will get used to it and will push us to pick up the "treasure".
1. We will do something good for our health when we go for a walk
2. Our dog will be happy to receive a morsel and it will motivate us to collect of dog excrement
3. Our parks will stay clean

ReZoo is a recycling machine/game for children that is designed to encourage recycling through fun. It is a three sided been, on each side accepting different recyclable item: bottles, paper and cans. Each side of the toy is a touch screen displaying animated animal character. In the idle state the animals are sad and bored, and when approached by a person they call for attention by making animal sounds. By inserting appropriate recyclable item, the animal will play with it a bit (juggle for example) and throw it into the recycling can on the screen.
Cities are congested with traffic. The pollution from traffic is high. Parking is scarce and very expensive. What I promote is combined individual transport. People would still use regular cars for longer distances, like from suburbs to near the center. For shorter distances, in parts of towns with dense traffic, or within the center, people would use bikes or tricycles (pedaled or geared by electric motors), which would be foldable, and therefore it would be possible to keep them in the trunk of the car.

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.

Have a giant basketball hoop over a plastics recycle been in any public high school. Like your glass recycler...have the hoop make noise and total points as drink bottles are recycled.
Same idea...different format. Big pinball type apparatus drop in recyclable at top it bangs off appropriate pinball type obstacles finally ca-chinging as it drops into the bin for requisite points.

Making fresh-squeezed orange juice can be fun, healthy and easy to do. Orange Fresh Stepper is a vending machine for fresh, healthy orange juice and it's powered by mini stepper. The machine can be placed in hotels, food stores, schools and juice bars to offer freshly squeezed orange juice, during making an exercise. Electronic display shows strides per minute, counter, timer and the amount of juice squeezed. Inskickad av Zornitsa and Boyan.
Daphne, the funny Waste Paper Bin will help us! When we think about recycling, waste paper recycling is perhaps one of the first areas that springs to mind as many of us have been doing this for many years. Waste paper recycling covers a wide variety of different types of paper. We can recycle newspapers, magazines, junk mail, office paper, holiday brochures, catalogues and white directories (e.g. phone books).
Spelet gör kollektivåkande och väntan på nästa tåg till en rolig och stimulerande upplevelse. Tre jättelika siffror är målade eller fastklistrade i tunnelbanestationerna men inte på en yta utan på många olika ytor i många olika plan i olika djup. Spelet går ut på att hitta den punkt där färgfälten ser ut som en siffra. Står man på fel ställe är den helt obegriplig. När man väl hittat den punkt där man ser siffran, tittar man ner på golvet eller på närmsta vägg. Där hittar man en liten plakett med två andra siffror.
As pedestrians put plastic wastage in to the garbage collector, the leaves on the tree board are lighted using green LED lights. The more the plastic and garbage collected more the leaves turn green. So when it is full all the tree becomes green and gives a message "Recycle - Reuse - Reduce" the plastic. Inskickat av Manoj
Lots of parents start involving their children, from an early stage, in different sport activities such as swimming, trekking, climbing. And we all know, in climbing, kids have a special wall arranged for them, with different accessories and helpful supports.
What if, instead of the wall we use a large replica of Planet Earth?
- the mountains chains and volcanoes would come out in relief
- the climbing supports would be fixed in the same places where the mountain peeks are situated on the map
Pedestrian Bridges are there to help us cross the road in a safe way, but most people ignore them. By making a little change we can make more people use them, reducing accidents in that way and also the people doing so will get more exercise! Using a modification of an arcade game will change their behavior for the better.

En container/askkopp för utomhusbruk. Teknik: Snurraskkopp och snurreffekten genererar energi som driver en cylinder med tecknade fimpfigurer i olika positioner. Snurren ger illusionen av dans/piruett, en enkel filmteknik. I och med att rökning inte längre är tillåten inomhus så blir trottoarerna en stor offentlig askkopp vilket är både ett miljöproblem och en estetiskt förfulning av det offentliga rummet.
