What is the matter? We would like people to bring their old batteries for recycling. But how? Let’s imagine the situation: A recycle bin in the middle of the street, behind it a green background (like for the cinema), in front of it a video camera. You put your bag with batteries in the bin. After that you will be recorded during ten seconds. Do what you want! Be creative! And here comes the real innovation: Find yourself back on the Internet!! Thanks to the green background you and the bin will be inserted in a random video/background: a beach, a mountain, a city, the sky.
I am submitting additional information to further describe a concept I submitted in October. This concept involves a container to receive newspapers, magazines and other paper for recycling. The container would have a large opening to put the paper in and include a camera above the opening to take the persons picture showing them on a screen below with the headlines reading:
Most batteries become highly hazardous at the end of their useful life.
Therefore it is necessary to collect them for appropriate disposal or recycling.
The idea is to make an eye-catching mechanism (similar to the one in Charlie Chaplins movie ‘Modern Times’) that is activated through batteries. Every inserted battery makes the mechanism turn for several seconds. The more batteries are inserted, the longer the machine is working. Inskickat av Bernhard Neuwirth och Alina Avscharova
The use of dividers on the supermarket checkout transport belt is quite common. The dividers usually are put in a gully by the checkout person. the dividers usually are concentrated at the end side, where they are put in the gully, not at the beginning, where they are needed. By giving sounds to the sliding dividers people will be tempted to slide them to the other people at the beginning of the transport belt. Additionally there can be a speed meter to look at the speed of your slide. But this can become dangerous, so maybe a catching net at the end of the gully.
We all are humans and therefore we have different opinions on Everything. From the smallest detail to the future of mankind. We like to discuss things and we like to be given chance to express our opinion. And there is nothing wrong with that. If only we could do something good while loudly expressing ourselves. Welcome to Earth Vote For Everyone! The bigger skeptic of global warming you are the more fun you will have by switching of the light. Remember, every vote counts!

The Trash target is to prevent people to throw away their trash on the streets. When people want to throw away their garbage they can aim and throw. Different melodies will play depending where the person hits. If a person hit the middle besides playing the winning melody the lights will blink.

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.
This Project is to make people to throw the garbage in the trash can by making it fun to do with a trash can rocket that you can play with. Every time you throw garbage the lights will turn on first the red light, then the yellow light and finally the green light and also a sound like a rocket will turn on, and once you get to the green light you will be a winner! The idea is to make people to throw more garbage to keep playing.

A pyramid with 3 segments n line (or more if other glass colours are required to be separated) for clear, brown, green. Above these is a series of tubes, rotating about a centre axle, spaced at equal intervals. These are ‘loaded’ at the bottom arc, and then rotated to fire in the hole position at the top by a ship’s wheel. You 'load' glass into the tube. The wheel is then used to rotate it upright to the highest position over a protected hole in the container below.
Objective: To get more people to use soap when washing their hands after using the restroom.
A recent article in USA Today reported that when people wash their hands after using the restroom, only 33% use soap and only 16% adequately wash. The average hand-washing time was a pathetic 11 seconds.
So we need a fun way to motivate people to wash their hands adequately using soap.
Paper or plastic bag? Paper is better environmentally and easier to recycle. To make paper bags out an enjoyable change from the dull shop logo on fun things like crossword puzzles, crafts or perhaps a story written by a bestselling author. When in a fun and environmentally friendly way led home the goods from the store takes his bag, sits in his favorite chair and feel the creativity flow.

The problem is that many people like to pollute the air by using cars. I will make the walk atlon you will have to run or walk and it depends on how many miles you walk because they will give you money if you walk a lot will get more money. Inskickad av Karla Gasca.
We are not so enthusiastic to wash our hands before eating or after using toilets. Whereas, we intake thousands of germs everyday through these hands. Therefore, this initiative is to make hand washing FUN. If we some how can see all the germs strolling in our hand then we will certainly paying attention to wash our hands. Because, we believe more what we see. My idea is to install a special kind of hand basin in schools, hospitals and restaurants.
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.

In today’s world services are measured in terms of money (currency)
But what about ‘good deeds’ done by people with no expectation of any monetary benefit but at some time the deed has value attached to it.You don’t expect money when you go out of your way to help an old man cross the road.
We will introduce a new global currency “Good deed” Currency. It will be printed solely by the sponsor company in the denominations of 5,10,20,50,100,500 & 1000.
They will be introduced among the public for distribution and circulation initially through NGO’s, charities, old age homes etc.
A dashboard game that’s inspirer people to drive cars more CO2-friendly.
There are a few easy things you can do when you drive your car to help reduce the amount of fuel you burn and so cut down on CO2 emissions.
The secret is to help reduce the amount of work your engine has to do, because the greater the workload, the more fuel is burned – so the higher is the CO2 emissions.
People often leave their offices at the end of the day and forget the lights on. This is bad for the company and for the environment. Think about it: if a person works from 8am to 6pm, the lights should be on for only 10 hours, but if they forget to turn it off, it's on for 24 hours, more than twice the necessary. So, can we solve that problem by making turning off the lights fun? My idea is to have a "polite light" that thanks the person every time he/she turns it off. We could use different voices and different languages to say thank you, found in movies or music.
Dog poop scooping is no fun! But it is less fun to live in a city full of poop…
How could poop scooping be less annoying?
A scooper that makes funny noises can become a new way to play with your dog. This scooper has a mechanism that creates funny noises when collecting poop. You can choose between different sounds (cat noise, toy squiz, barking…).
You could enjoy your dog’s reaction to the noises and interact with other people that use different noises too.
Simple and fun, not only for people but for dogs too!
