1. This Fun Reversible Vending Machine looks like a regular RVM but with a computer screen and keyboards.
2. It operates like a game / social networking site, where users gets money in return for putting in recycled products and for correctly answering questions.
3. The questions are based on data from previous users, who when “playing” must; 1. put in a recycled product, 2. provide answer to a very basic fun facts question about oneself (like favorite color), and 3. correctly answer the fun fact question of the previous user.
Ride down the road of the future with wind technology created by your passing cars. A channel of small wind turbines keep turning by the force of wind created as vehicles pass. Road light and signs electrical usage is generated from the wind power while mileage counters show you how much energy was created and how much energy was saved on an hourly basis. A great conversation piece that can only lead to a GREENER way of life.

Air-drying on a clothesline or rack instead of machine is an easy way to cut energy usage and also save money. With "Who Wants to be a Laundry-naire?" you can turn a chore into a game show! Watch the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" style gameshow on the clip-on screen, and buzz in your answers by pressing the letter keys beside each clothes line (can play with a partner...good incentive to turn laundry into a social event with other family members).
Teeth washing is not fun, especially for children!
How to help them to transform that 3 minutes, twice a day, in a good time?
The idea is that a “Dental Care Association” promotes this interactive game: children listen to a story while brushing their teeth and than solve some mysteries on the initiative's website. They follow the adventure every day with a different episode.
The solution proposed is good for health, fun for children and helpful for parents!

Hasn’t driving to school for your whole life been sooo boring? Well not any more! A Chair Lift is solar powered, unlike cars, which makes them good for the environment! A Chair Lift will be used for school, and will have the name of the place your going to on it! They even go at a safe speed! If it is pouring rain or snowing just pull down the cover! You also get a great view, a nice breeze [ in summer] and back-pack hatches! What a fun convenient way to get to school! Inskickat av McLean Masuch
This is an interesting fun way to make people get interested about the subject of the course. The teacher devide the classroom into groups-teams that after the lecture will compete each other with the help of a computer (would be like the Photoplay machines). If the group paid attention to the lecture they will be able to answer all the questions of the machine and get the prize which will be not to get examined the next day in that subject!
To conscience is the most effective way to changing every day customs. Small and repetitive gestures of daily life are the ones that have more impact. So the key is to reeducate habits and change people´s behaviours.
The idea is to put a counter or scorer on the tap water , basin and shower, sink.. to show you the amount of water you use and if it possible to use less obtainig the same result. To put a comparative of the litres you have used with a shocking data of what could have been done with the wasted water.
When people are waiting at the bus stop they sit down as if they were tired, even the young people. However everybody agrees they should do more excercise, but they don’t have time. So, let's use the wasted time waiting for the bus! We can mix a "Pinball Machine" and a "Step Machine". So, when you move your right foot, you move the right stick of the Pinball. And when you move your left foot, you move the left stick. We can install a Pinball exercise machine at the bus stop (in the place for advertising). So, it’s pinball exercise! Hit the ball, get points and have fun!
The problem is that people use cars instead of bicycles while they pollute the air and they do not do exercise.
My solution that every four months you use a bicycle instead of a car and you prove that you see it more than two times a day, let say for example your bicycle is a Chevrolet the company will need to give you a three hundred bonus card so you can spend them on any store you like. That would encourage people to use bicycles instead of cars because they know they are going to get a bonus card, which will really encourage me.

Many drivers and pedestrians don’t respect simple traffic laws because they consider that they aren’t misbehaving since they aren't breaking important safety laws like crossing with red lights or surpassing the speed maximum. Showing people through humour the small infractions to the law they make can make them realice the important of their mistakes and help them become better citizens. The most common small infractions are: stopping their car over a pedestrian crossing, talking over the cellphone while driving or crossing the street walking through the forbidden places.
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.

Because pedestrian injuries have become a public health problem severity, sequelae and disabilities which generate, ranking first from the last nine years in deaths from traffic injuries. The primary objective is: Encourage the use of pedestrian bridges in the town of Jiutepec in a fun and entertaining changing the concept of using the bridge with a project called THEORY OF FUN.

A tamagotchi pet children keep alive by walking a set number of steps per day. Every n*(1,000 ) steps feeds it. Every y* (1000) steps keeps it happy, etc. Essentially, the PeTePe's emotional/"physical" state will be determined by the number of steps taken by the child during the day. One long walk or run could feed it for days, while sedentary behavior would "starve" it. Children can compare their PeTePe's or challenge one another like traditional tamagotchi pets. The PeTePe is a great way of getting kids to be more active: walk to school, run during recess, etc.
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.
As a society, we are disengaged from our future (i.e. we don't work together to bring about social change more often and more forcefully). We also strongly believe that the main reason for this is the fact that we are built to discount issues that we are not immediately connected with (either in terms of time or in terms of location). What we propose is that we use technology to break down this artificial barriers we create in our mind between us and our future and between us and the rest of the world.
There are symbols to almost everything: gay community, luck, breast cancer, aids and more. So, why not a icon to represent the Fun Theory? An icon to be seen everywhere, all the time: in T-shirts, sticks, stamps, magazines, outdoors, pins, signs, the moon!!! Something universal, clean, strong, inspiring, to really make a statement. Like the smilie face, but in royal blue. It is positive reinforcement linked to other subjects such as driving, eating, the environment, people, love, health or safety. The idea has been out there for years, but there is a need for a concrete message.
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.
Lets encourage people to use dryers instead of paper towels in public bathrooms. Lets add a little harmonica that sounds with the dryer's air and that people can move from side to side. Lets dry dry our hands, have fun and save some trees, all at the same time! Inskickad av Lorena Stuani.
Having fun while writing a math test? It can happen! At The Country Day School in King, Ontario, Grade 9 students complete a scavenger hunt at The Toronto Zoo as part of their math evaluation. Each answer to a mathematical question leads the students, working in pairs, to another location at the zoo where they will find information required to answer the next question. Top three groups win a zoo souvenir.
