A recycle bin turned into fun poll-machine. Two transparent cylinders with scales are showing the public opinion. People can "vote" with
their garbage, by throwing it into YES or NO can. You can change the questions over the time to keep the poll fresh and sharp, based on what is important at the moment in the given location.

A long tube built into a slider leading from a side easy insertion level to a point just over cone leading to the base centre. At top in interior is a mangle crusher feeding into and old paper shredder. You 'load' PEP bottles into the tube. You then slide it upright (using screwed in 330ml bottle handles) to drop into the cone. This action activates the blade, only once the tube is well out of reach. The shredder drops the shards into a cone-shaped pile.

People don’t get enough exercise and people need energy so if you have lots of bicycles, a ferris wheel, cords, control booth, a energy storage and a lot of people/passersby you could make a ferris wheel that’s powered by bikes and than all of the the extra energy goes to a storage and then when the storage is filled (or mostly filled) a car comes and transports it to someplace that needs it!

This is a special box for collecting used batteries. You can put one normal battery of any kind into the "start" hole, then the game begins. When you roll the handle, the maze plate revolves. You just need to find the the right way to exit for your battery as soon as possible. A record of the least time will be shown on the top. Through this amazing Battery Maze, people would like to collect used batteries spontaneously. Inskickat av Golden Guo
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.
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.

Children interact with each other, by inventing various games. The most common behavior of children is to climb and get on high places. Psychologists explain this behavior, by children’s’ attempt to see the world from “above”. Children are also very curious and are not afraid from heights. By proposing this installation, we believe to get children involved into the practice of recycling. Such interactive bins can make children aware of their possibilities to throw rubbish in various ways.
The problem to be solved: people always getting new plastic bags, thus creating more waste.
The solution: The main reason why you have to get a bag at the store is because you didn’t think of bringing one before. If you write your shopping list on a bag (with a magna doodle’ish device), you’re more likely to take it with you when you go shopping.

In this colourless city at the bus stop, where it’s too boring to stand. Where there’s nothing interesting.. How could the bus stops turned into meeting points,encourage people to use more the means of transportation and make the city beautiful at the same time? This concept will change our point of view for people around us and we will make us part of a work of art. Inskickad av Carlos.

Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Inskickat av Simon Scherer.
A common problem on the highways is that lots of pedestrian cross the road among cars instead of using the footbridge. This behavior can result in accidents and running over. Would be possible to increase the number of people using the footbridge and to decrease the number of people that across among the cars by making the footbridge cross something funny? This is the objective of the “Magic Footbridge”.
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.
People nowadays tend to be impressed or attracted by something new or unique. The refuse bin was design in an upside down way to attract the crowd (What is your first reaction or impression when you see an inverted refuse bin hanging on the wall?) Throwing aluminum cans can be fun, the upside down way, where your cans will be suck upwards (a fun interaction between human and refuse bin). Funny sentences and phrases displayed on LCD screens after each throwing action, using several weird quotes create some unexpected fun while throwing your cans (i.e.
The TV screen will show short clips as long as there is red light.
Clips like funny stuff from youtube, parts from favorite tv shows etc.
That way people will enjoy standing in the red light rather then being bored and pissed at it (thus, walking while it's on).

Rainbow Race Treadmill is a fun way to exercise. We took the concept of Nintendo Mario Kart and applied it to a treadmill. While running on the treadmill, the runner will focus on a screen in front of the treadmill that displays the rainbow race track in Mario Kart. Also, the treadmill itself has a rainbow pattern to imitate the idea that the runner is actually running on the rainbow race track. The runner can get bonuses while running, which creates an enjoyable running experience. The runner can go as fast or slow as she or he wants to accommodate all ages and exercise abilities.
People often take the bus even if they only have a little distance to cover. By doing the this the people miss the extra excercise they would have got.
But what if we built a cycle bus? That looks like a normal bus but has pedals under every seat. This would give the passengers excercise but also create a mode of transport with no emissions at all.
