BAD BEHAVIOR: Toys cluttering the house and no one picking up toys. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: A device similar to a wastebasket would be placed on top of the toy box or toy storage container. This device would have a simple counter that counts the number of toys per second or minute that were put into the container. As the number increases the device will get louder and louder with bells and whistles to encourage the children to put away the toys.
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.
Water conservation is tricky. Signs and shocking statistics seem to do little to change behavior. Enter FUN. Imagine a virtual fish tank behind the water faucet. The water level is connected to how much water is being used. If you leave the water running while brushing your teeth or lathering your hands, the water level lowers. You need to be smart about how much water you use so you leave water for the fish to live. The water slowly refills as the faucet is off.
Men här är lösningen! Smutsräknaren! Ett dammsugarmunstycke med räknare på vilket gör att såfort du dammsugit upp damm eller annan smuts så får man poäng! Poängen visas sedan på en display på dammsugarmunstycket. När du dammsugit klart kopplar du upp dammsugarmunstycket mot datorn och internet. Poängen överförs till en personlig räknare på en hemsida, den som har flest poäng i slutet av varje månad vinner! Inskickat av Johan
The concept is a racing game to play in the shower, that induces people to speed up. The faster you take your shower, the more you win and more water you save.
This game shows a possible way of saving water when taking a shower, so that the time it takes is reduced in a fun way.
The main concept is that user takes the least time to take a shower doing the usual tasks as shampooing and washing, rushing them in the form of a race.
This game could be diffused online, in a social network, so that friends and neighbours could compete amongst them.
Låt ekologiska, rättvisemärkta varor etc i matvarubutiker tas ned från hyllan/hissas från taket osv som intresseväckare med ljud/labyrintbanor och göra handlandet av produkter som gynnar miljö och människor roligare!

The Digital Reward System rewards boring activities with a free download of a good that is related to that particular activity.Digital Goods such as Mp3-music, E-books and Software are easy to distribute, through mobile or web platforms and infinitely multipliable, which makes a ridiculously cost-effective incentive system. This system can also be customized for any brand and integrated with all areas of marketing.
We always forget to wash our hands after we go to the restroom. So the idea is to put a mini game on the mirror and the buttons are on the bottom. You will have 30 seconds to wash them and win the mini game.You will have three buttons on the sink, the buttons have a protector against water. The mirror will have 5 different mini games and are chose randomly. If you win bubbles will come out from different parts of the room, but if you loose you will be splashed by a ballon that is up on the roof but inside. The mirror will say the instructions on the right in a paper.
A fun game to play at the traffic lights. You have to get to 20 points by pushing the right buttons in the right order. You can play against the clock or versus an opponent on the other side of the street. When you get enough points to win, the lights change to green so you can cross.

Ironing clothes can be a boring task and getting the creases removed from your clothes perfectly is next to impossible. Now all you need to do is place your shirt on a customized iron board with sensors. You need to define the task. What is to be ironed? Shirt, trouser etc. The board defines your play area with lights depending on your selection. Creases are highlighted. Place the mini road roller iron on the shirt, sit back and let the fun begin. With a remote control you need to guide the road roller around the highlighted creases. If you move out of your play area, you lose points.
So many gloomy faces can be seen nowadays on bus, tram, we can meet angry car drivers and rushing masses on the streets. One smile can break this negative wave. Smiling is good to our body and soul, and it also generates a chain reaction: if you smile to someone, he will instinctively smile back. The theory is that a chocolate automat is working with smile. The core of the automat is a face recognizing software that decides if someone smiles or not. Also with this program only one chocolate per person could be given. Inskickat av Edit Tangl.
Recycling is very important. However making recycling actions is still not the nr. 1. trend in my country. Maybe we could promote recycling if we could make it more fun: through Recycling Zoo (RZ) for example. In Budapest we handle five types of garbage, so at the moment there are five resident of RZ. Each animal has an individual solution to absorb garbage.
We can increase fun factor by"
1. Transform wooden animal plates into monkey bars (e.g. elephant’s fangs or turtle heads are perfect steps)
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!

In several of the hallways connecting terminals in airports, you can lay down strips of small "speed bumps" in a precise pattern. When rolling bags roll over these strips of small little bumps, the thudding of the wheels will make the rhythm that is written on the floor (i.e. tango, samba, salsa etc). Some of these strips will be "partner" rhythms, where it takes two or more people walking at the same pace to make the beat.

Many people do not care about recycling and throw plastics/cans/paper/glass into the same, general purpose, rubbish bin. If we would add a fun incentive to it, their behaviour could change! Monitor your recycling and compete with other people in your recycling bin/your district/your town. Each time a person comes to the recycling bin, he enters his code & password and in this way lets the system know it's him.
No one likes it when they go to a public restroom only to find that the last person there seemingly was unable to focus on what they are doing. This careless behavior results in an unsanitary environment, additional sanitation worker costs and more people carelessly abusing the restrooms. So how do we change this behavior in a fun way? In this fun theory we propose directing the patrons’ attention toward where they should be aiming while also showing them something they can be proud of (Percentage of Accuracy).

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.
Att panta är viktigt, men tänk vad mycket roligare det skulle vara om man fick se vad som händer med PET-flaskorna efter att man stoppat in dem i maskinen. Idag hör vi en massa spännande kross-ljud, men vi saknar den visuella njutningen. Lösning: pantkrossen - den transparenta pantautomaten. Stoppa in din flaska och fascineras av hur kompakt den blir av krossens effektiva mekanismer.

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.
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.
