Cigarette Buds are common on the roads. They are seen everywhere, on the streets. I have noticed that after smoking, people generally throw cigarette buds. Sometimes they throw in the dust bin, sometimes on the side of the road or street. My idea is to transform the dustbin into a dart game. When the 'Cig Dart Bin' is designed in the shape of a dart game (as shown in the figure) it would go into the unconscious mind to aim and throw, just to check, how many points do one get. The cig buds hit the points board and fall in the bin below. (Doesn't matter from where
The thermo chromic hand dryer is a simple and fun way to indirectly increase participation in hand washing via adding an element of fun at the secondary stage – hand drying. Adding thermochromic paint to the metal parts, most notably the directional nozzle, will induce a visible and spectacular colour change as hot air comes into contact with the metal upon a user activating the hand dryer. The engaging effect is similar to that produced by thermocolour t-shirts and thermochromic mugs.
Having fever is never a pleasant thought. But a little bit of science could make you look forward to being unwell. Fever meter is a fun innovation based on the concept of a Hand Boiler. Pleasant colored bulbs are attached to the sides of your bed. Each attached with transparent thin tubes running across the walls and ceiling of your room. When you touch the bulbs the warmth makes the colored liquid run across the room in patterns. If you touch multiple bulbs with your hands and feet you get more colors and patterns. Patterns could be changed as the tubes are flexible.
Sticking to the speed limit. Nobody likes to do that! Why go slow when you can go fast? Of course driving fast is dangerous, with governments implementing speed limits as a result. And there is no reward for good driving, only penalties for bad driving! What this system does is encourage safe driving while making it fun, and rewarding drivers for sticking to the speed limit. How it works is that software is developed that integrates with Sat Navs - and/or takes the form of a standalone device.
People are mostly bored when riding a tram. Not so in the “Partytram”. inter-active motivation clips aim to motivate guests to try out simple dance steps, such as stomping in different rhythms or doing very basic salsa or tango steps.
Fight children obesity by motivating the children to exercise and save energy. When the children watch TV they do no exercise at all plus the added calories from the junk food they are eating. The TV plugs in to a motion sensor, if the children is moving the TV stays on, when the children stops moving the TV goes off. This way the children exercises and makes it very hard to eat junk food, also they save energy because the TV turns off when no one is in the room.

As recycling initiatives are increasing in number and people are becoming
more aware and receptive to these ideas, I'm suggesting a bottle recycling
Camouflaged as a casino slot machines, the recycling process works as follows:
- every bottle works as a coin, each inserted bottle gets recycled
- for every bottle inserted you have the right for a spin
- the more bottles you insert, the more you recycle and the more winning chances you got
It's a win win situation. You get most of fun out of it and Planet Earth wins a better life,
with a more responsible society.
The main idea is to encourage people to donate used books using fun, music and interactivity!
A collecting depository will be installed on a very crowded street or avenue. On the top of the machine, a big and wide LCD screen with cameras shows the message bellow.
“Books are light and imagination. Share them and be a star!”
When a book is deposited, the donor chooses a kind of music (jazz, rock, pop, mambo, classic, etc.). After pressing the rhythm button, music starts and the image of the public is displayed by the LCD Screen.
The problem i'm attempting to solve is to reawaken interest in public parks which, within cities, often go underused and under appreciated. In the most basic terms, this would be a series of footprints, applied in anything from chalk to plastic cutouts that hammer into the ground (similar to a tent stake) and 'start' at a point near a public park.
The pedestrians do not respect the red light of the semaphore in the corners. Nobody pays attention to the little man who indicates us to stop and wait. Maybe he should do something more than simply be standing there. Can we give to people an entertaining way of waiting before crossing in a right form? Yes! With the red dancer man nobody will want to miss the show. A led display shows his movements, accompanied with the rhythm of a cheerful music that comes out from small incorporated speakers.
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!

So what's the most boring thing kids have to do everyday? Going to school. They just won't get out of bed or wash up or get dressed or get on that bus. So...what if we made the ride to school really really fun and something kids look forward to everyday. The idea is to transform school buses into boats, helicopters, spaceships etc. Do all sorts of fun things inside - like water-bed seats, video games and music, painting etc. There maybe around 8-10 buses in every school, so the buses can be changed everyday for every lot of kids.

Kan vi få fler människor att hålla den angivna hastighetsgränsen genom att göra det roligt? Idén är att fånga de som håller hastigheten med en kamera. De blir fotograferade och registreringsnumret antecknas och hamnar i ett lotteri. Vinnaren får kontanter i vinst och meddelas via post. För att göra det ännu bättre kommer vinstpengarna från de som har tagits för fortkörning.
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!

My idea is simple: we would encourage people to believe that there were very naughty, but very shy urban monkeys living in our public bins. These naughty monkeys love to eat what we throw away but being sensible people we don't want to encourage that kind of behaviour! So, official looking signs would be placed on our rubbish bins/trash cans advising people NOT to feed the monkey. The monkeys have no manners at all. This will never do! Every time someone puts in their rubbish a loud ''munch munch' or 'burp' will erupt from the bin.
Batteries disposed irresponsibly in municipal landfills or trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of toxic substances in the air and water. So, a battery waste prevention and recycling campaign is more than welcomed. And how can we stimulate people in joining and promoting these initiatives more but by making this entertaining, fun and engaging for them?
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.
