Humane societies are often understaffed and crowded, yet it is difficult to get awareness into communities and encourage people to donate. However, many do have a certain weakness to two things – cute animals and delicious candy. Hubert, the mascot of a humane society, needs your help. When you donate to Hubert’s hungry tummy, he will reward you with a wonderfully bright gumball from his bum bum. Our furry friend will be placed in public places such as malls and grocery stores. Donating to a good cause has never been more silly or fun than this.

It often happens when you are working on your computer that it suddently crashes. This is pretty frustrating, isn't it? You would like to punch your computer or throw it away... this would relieve you of your frustration. From now on, with the computer airbag you can actually do it. Feel more relaxed, relieve your rage against your machines! :)

Cleaning the shoes at the doormat is good way to leave the dirt outside and also to save a lot of water, cleaning supplies and manpower inside a building.
The doormat can be used for normal house entrances (also as a substitute for the doorbell, meaning the sound can be heard inside as well) or even for big entrances of offices or public buildings (here the composition may be recorded and the next visitor may listen to it before making a new one).
Problem: Shopping carts are not being returned. Instead they are left scattered around the parking lot, often occupying a parking space and sometimes rolling in to vehicles causing damage while unsuspecting shoppers are off shopping.
My idea for the project The Fun Theory is to solve the problem of cigarettes consumed and thrown away in parks (causing fires) or in the streets (increasing environmental pollution). I thought to encourage use of outdoor ashtray insert the typical sound of crackling wood that attracts attention and also an hologram on the surface of the ashtray. Depositing the cigarette the hologram reproduces the fire by creating fun and wonder.

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.

My idea is to have markings on the road that when seen by the driver of an approaching vehicle appear to change shape at a precise speed. For instance a car approaching markings positioned at a 20mph speed limit at 20mph +/- 2mph, instead of seeing a random set of dots and lines would see a smiling face or other appropriate graphics. The fun element of this is that the graphic would be different not only for different speed limits but also for different locations so there would always be an incentive to drive within the limit to see which graphic would appear.
Problem: The problem in the United States is that a lot of people don’t throw the trash were it belong. They don’t care if the trash is every where. We need to do something so they can throw the trash were it needs to go. We have to do something fun that we can do to help our country. It is so important that we do something so our country would not look like a big trash in the whole world. Almost all the people who live in the United States don’t want to help to throw the trash in the trash can. So I got an idea for this problem.
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
BAD BEHAVIOR: Adults or children who leave their clothes lying around the floor or bathroom. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: Design and place a device on top of the clothes basket. This device will register clothing as it goes through the "hoop" similar to basketball. The more clothing that goes into the hoop the more points a family member receives. A biometric reader could be installed to recoginize the particular family member using the device and an electric eye could be used to score more points based on the distance of the shooter.
A huge problem for any parent couple - to make children wash their hands every time they get dirty.
To solve this problem let's think of a carrot and stick method of teaching - however this time only about the carrot part. There should be a strong motivator of why a youngster must wash his hands.
What if s/he could get something out of the soap after using it? This would facilitate him/her to wash hands as frequently as possible to wash the soap off for getting what's inside it.
Why spend your money on new stuff? Why throw away things you don't need? How about you could trade your old stuff for a perfectly good object that someone's not using anymore?
Meet new people , save money and energy needed to produce new things , keep track of your old belongings ( how they travel around the world ) and have fun while doing it!

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
Problem tackled: Collecting batteries to recycle them.
Solution: The device, a used-batteries collector, takes advantage of the form factor of a pinball to engage people into playing. Batteries replace metal balls. Pulling on and releasing the lever propulse the battery onto the playfield. Multiple boards could be adapted. The hole to target is indicated to the player through a visual cue. The goal is to reach the target by applying the appropriate force on the lever.

This idea will encourage people to go to the park and have a wonderful pastime to exercise better, refresh their minds and get a feeling of doing their part to save the environment. Installing boxing (kick boxing too), cycling, pulling and rowing machines that can tap on to the energy produced by the aforementioned exercises in the park. The participants should be shown the amount of green life they have saved during their workout session and a set of good health tips can also be displayed to create health awareness among the participants.
Är du stark nog? Spelet är inte nytt men syftet! Ett problem i många länder är att tomburkar slängs i naturen eller på andra platser där de inte hör hemma. Kan vi bygga en maskin där burken bli själva spelmarken? I det här spelet är det din styrka som sätts på prov.
Du placerar en gammal tomburk på plattan och slår med släggan. Om du lyckas slå tomburken ända upp så krossas den och du får ditt namn på en high-score lista beroende på hur hårt du slår. Samtidigt trillar burken ner i en återvinningstunna. På så sätt får du träning, har kul och gör något bra för miljön!
People often get lost in their thoughts while in the shower, losing track of time, resulting in more water being used than necessary. Some people also sing in the shower, losing track of time. Some resources suggest that people need to stop bath room singing, so they are more aware of the time they spend in the shower. How can we let people keep track of their time while in the shower, but still make sure that they have a fun and enjoyable experience? When the user turns the shower on, the lights dim and soft music plays.
Can you make train platforms safer through fun? Train platforms can be a dangerous place. A lot of people get injured every year when not exercising caution and parents are often anxious about their kids wandering about. The poles would light up when the train is either rushing through or coming into the station. People can standing in the "safe" area will activate the colored lights on the pole. The more people who stand in the safe area, the higher the colors will go, encouraging social gathering in the "safe" area to create an effect you could not do on your own. Fun = safer!
The Theory: This idea is to encourage the average person to incorporate social music/rhythm/sound into their daily commute, instead of having everyone isolated in a personal bubble, This would hopefully lead to more interpersonal interaction, not necessarily through speaking but through music. The Plan: On a subway car, incorporate different areas which form different sounds. (snare drum, piano cords, guitar sounds, etc..) These areas can be anything from a pole, to a small section on the floor, or even part of a seat. They would be touch sensitive, and light up when touched.
