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.

If we could get kids hooked on fruit and vegetables we would embed a healthy habit for life. My kids love ride-on toys. Every time we go to the supermarket I have to peel them off the ride-on tractor at the shopping mall, so what would happen if a ride-on toy dispensed fruit and veg? Imagine you are a kid again and you get to climb in a rocket that gives you a fun ride with lots of levers to pull and flashing lights and a song about going to the moon. A friendly alien then asks you which space snack you want.
Have you ever notice that: when people open the tap, do they use the water or just do something like brush their teeth or stylish their hair but open the tap without conscious. They just unconsiously waste the water resource. We need something can remind them: you should be awareness of saving the water. We would like to design a tap built in a “bomb”. When people open the tap, they must wash their hands and turn off it within 7 seconds. Otherwise, the led display shall show explosion and sound serious warning.
Crosswalks are everywhere where we need them, but paradoxically people prefer to cross the street on other places, even when the crosswalk is only few meters away. This causes accidents.
In the videoclip from Michael Jacksons „Billie Jean“, he walks on a path and everything he touches lights up. I always found that fascinating, specially the lights on the floor.
The idea is to avoid people crossing the walks on red lights. Too many people cross the crosswalks on redlights when there are not cars. My idea consist on installing a sensor on the floor on each site of crosswalk that will detect when people put a foot on the crosswalk and it is red light. If someone crosses the street, a speaker will make a sound and a light on the opposite site of the crosswalk will flash the pedestrian so he/she will realize that is not allowed to cross on red light.

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
Once every year, for example November 1st, children and grown-ups together gather up in communities in order to repair and create new stuff out of old, unused stuff . This day could be celebrated all over the world, so that people can drop in and meet new people, discussing ideas, swopping, making, and developing old boring stuff to fit new needs. Pair up together with someone you don't know well, young or old, start inventing and write down ideas that make the world better.

The flying bicycle is an entertainment thermometer. It invites people who are overcrowd in the traffic or people that simply are passing by. It’s a proposal to generate sustainable and clean energy, using your own body. It is for all the ages, white and costless. Just get on and ride, the energy that you produce whill you twirl the pedals is like the energy which pushs the pinwheels. The more you ride, the more the pinwheels move! The flying bicycle is a proposal to change minds through a different life style. Use your energy, move foward and go far! Submitted by Rasputines.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, between their morning and afternoon runs, a group of Bus Drivers from Broward County Schools, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, take a ride themselves. The "Wellness Bus" transports the drivers from their worksites to Body Mechanics, a local gym that participates in the employee free gym membership benefit for school board employees. They excercise, receive complimentary personal training services, belly dance, stretch, and do Pilates.
As recycling initiatives are increasing in number and people are becoming
more aware and receptive to these ideas, I'm suggesting a bottle recycling
Camouflaged as a casino slot machines, the recycling process works as follows:
- every bottle works as a coin, each inserted bottle gets recycled
- for every bottle inserted you have the right for a spin
- the more bottles you insert, the more you recycle and the more winning chances you got
It's a win win situation. You get most of fun out of it and Planet Earth wins a better life,
with a more responsible society.
I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.
The problem: public water fountains are used less because many people buy bottled water under the impression that it is better, when in fact bottled water often comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is, bottled water has lower safety standards, is harmful to the environment, and costs up to 1,900 more per liter. What if drinking from water fountains was fun and educational?
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".
Recycling is getting more and more wide-spread. We will have learnt already how things are possible to be reused, how they should be sorted and where they should be put. However, more attention should still be paid to the recycling of batteries. We all use appliances for which batteries are needed. But when the batteries run down, what do we do with them? Sometimes we take them and throw them away in a box or a bin somewhere in an electric appliance shop. Why not playing a bit when throwing them away, though? All of us have once played Tetris, so why not playing it with run down batteries?
As a method of deterring jaywalking (crossing the street out of the crosswalk), make the crosswalk like a piano (similar to the staircase already done). To make it so people don't stay in the crosswalk, make it stop working when the light changes to "DON'T WALK" and start working again for the next cycle. This should make people want to cross the street in the right place at the right time. Hopefully people can continue to cross streets safely to decrease the number of people that get hit by cars.

Yay! is an online game that helps accomplish goals by encouraging users to completing tasks each day via a fun graphical interface and community interaction. Users get points for deciding to take on tasks, accomplishing tasks, encouraging others, and being encouraged by their friends. The application would run in Facebook and on an external website, yaythegame.com, utilizing Facebook Connect.

What happens when you throw something in the trash? Well, a small gnome stores it underground, that's what happens. In a long trashcan with a monitor on top, deposited trash first falls to a platform with a blue-screen where pictures from several angles are taken and a 3d model of the trashed object is then built and inserted into a 3D animation where a gnome/monster stores the trash carefully. further interaction could be acomplished by enabling reaction from the gnome to sound or movement.
