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.

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.
Smoking is a common problem in most of corporations. Certain people can't quit smoking just because they need both, a break from work and an opportunity to informally communicate with colleagues. This can be matched with quitting smoking. Here's the situation: a person goes to have a cigarette with his colleague to a smoking place. There, he sees a foosball table, which takes cigarettes as a payment.
In the city, metro, conventions , It is very common to find magazines, flyers and newspapers mixed in the garbage if not in the floor... when there are the first paper we could easily recycle!!! The PAPER TOILET serves to recuperate in a funny way all these papers by sitting on this special toilet like in a regular one, putting the papers in the middle of the "p" hole, and just flushing.... it's flawless!!!!
- It´s very simple, based in a daily symbol with a strong signification
- The 'P' for paper adapted as a sign in the ergonometric shape of the chair, to be seen from far away
Hi! My name is Steve and I'm a bunny. I speak for fun and nature. This video will show you how I would like to use the fun theory to help end an ecological problem for me and my animal friends. Using fun to encourage recycling plastic bags, we can brighten peoples days, help animals and reduce the use of plastic world wide. Please take a look and thank you for your time!

What if giving money for a good cause was made fun? We propose the ‘Giving Made Fun’ campaign. We propose using parking meters and placing them in busy walking streets. The parking meter will have a sign on it saying ‘Giving Made Fun – funds raised will support Charity XYZ.’ The parking meters will be retrofitted in order to take coins as well as notes. When someone inserts a coin and twists the dial, the parking meter will start playing funky disco music, simultaneously performers will start dancing to the beat.
This happens to many people day in day out. You take the dog for a quick walk, and then the inevitable happens. The dog needs a poo. You have to bend down near all the smells, and pick it up with a glove etc. But knowone wants to touch it, its revolting and there is easier ways. I have come up with an idea that allows you to NOT bend down near the smells to pick it up. It also allows you to NOT to physically touch it. But what it does allow you to do is have FUN, yes thats right, have FUN.
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!

Turning something icky into something pretty. The Gum Collector is a fun way to dispose of chewed gum without making a mess. It is a user friendly device that will keep out footphaths clean and no more sticky surprises under your seat. Gum Collectors could be placed in schools, at bus stops, on the street, train stations and pretty much anywhere. Inskickad av Yvette Messina.
In Geneva where I live there are sign posts which distribute free bags for people to collect their dogs’ doings. The bags distributed are boring plain black plastic bags. “Political Poop” is the project that will print on the bags political promises to increase their appeal and usage.

Everyone loves a good laugh! I'm a smoker and can't stand seeing cigarette butts laying on the ground all around a "disposal unit". Let's say to get everyone to start USING the butt can we make one that makes you laugh! The "Unit" is the bottom half of a person. The bottom half of the person is bent over to expose their "buttocks" with an open crack for the disposal ("insert here"). When a person puts their cigarette butt in the disposal area (butt) it passes by a sensor to trigger the sound of a fart.
The idea is made to solve the issue of people crossing the street on the red light. In my project the crosswalk is made from lighting floor panels which activate when you step on them. When the light is red they are in normal white colour, but when it turns green and someone steps on them, they change the colour. It would be very helpful because a lot of people don't wait for the green light and they risk their own and others' lives just to go few seconds faster.

MosaiGum is the simplest solution to avoid chewing gums related problems. Put your chewed gum in one of the free spaces of the mosaic and see the picture that evolves everyday. When a mosaic is full a plastic film can be removed and substituded by a new one with a new picture.
Come on and start creating your MosaiGum!

It is proven that a driver's mood can influence car fuel consumption by over 20%. So what if we could turn driving into an eco-driving game, making it fun? The idea is to read the instant fuel consumption from the on-board computer with a small processing unit, or in older models, read the accelerator pedal position with a simple and cheap infrared position sensor. A small and discrete LCD/LED screen would be placed on the dashboard where a toy face would appear.
Tired of old borders? The interactive border allows you to rip apart parts and make them into chairs and tables, take out a piece of the wall and see the person on the other side! Make a table, sit together and talk! Inskickad av Ronny Daniel
People are sad and grumpy in the subway. There's probably no real reason to be so other than being tired or tired of waiting for the subway. However, you can be less grumpy or even smile if there is something to provoke it!
So, do you know the mirror reflection on the opposite window when you sit in the metro? That could be made into something that can light you up in a second:
- distorting mirrors: admit it, they are addicting!
- drawn figures with a mirror where your face is. A giant bug is so cute if the mirrored person has a beard!
