If we could get kids hooked on fruit and vegetables we would embed a healthy habit for life. My kids love ride-on toys. Every time we go to the supermarket I have to peel them off the ride-on tractor at the shopping mall, so what would happen if a ride-on toy dispensed fruit and veg? Imagine you are a kid again and you get to climb in a rocket that gives you a fun ride with lots of levers to pull and flashing lights and a song about going to the moon. A friendly alien then asks you which space snack you want.
Purpose: To get people to use far away parking spots and get more exercise.
Idea: Posts signs that are solar digital at the farther parking spots. When a person parks there, they receive a "fortune" for the day. Kind of like a fortune cookie. Fun and easy!

The flying bicycle is an entertainment thermometer. It invites people who are overcrowd in the traffic or people that simply are passing by. It’s a proposal to generate sustainable and clean energy, using your own body. It is for all the ages, white and costless. Just get on and ride, the energy that you produce whill you twirl the pedals is like the energy which pushs the pinwheels. The more you ride, the more the pinwheels move! The flying bicycle is a proposal to change minds through a different life style. Use your energy, move foward and go far! Submitted by Rasputines.
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
A holographic picture is layed on the bottom of buses, such that it can't be seen from any angle. Only when the person is standing the picture can be seen. Thus, by making the picture interesting for younger people there will be seats enough for the older people to sit down. The picture may convey an interesting story for the young, but an uninteresting story for the old. For example, short jokes (like Garfield) or simply pictures of beautiful women are well suited.

Vending machines are popular in many countries around the world, but most of them sell soda and junk food. Besides being unhealthy, the bottles, cups and cans take time and money to recycle. Let’s encourage people to start reducing disposables at the source. How about a vending machine that sells healthy drinks to those who bring their own reusable bottles or mugs? The vending machine also sells reusable bottles or mugs to those who do not happen to have one with them. Whenever a customer places a bottle or mug on the dispenser, the machine will sense it and say “thank you! You are awesome!
Well, the problem of tha trash cans is sometimes they are "invisible"!
Making them "visible" can be the challenge to clean our parks or streets.. u know.
everytime crossing the line which is asking "any trash?" is like our mother asking everytime: did u clean your hands? and the design by itself is so easy to understand, so familiar to the generations..

Currently most sustainabile responses are focused on land where we can monitor the proposed changes, while the water which covers 70% of our Earth’s surface tends to be neglected. Since the phytoplankton growing within the oceans provides 50% of Earth’s photosynthesis, ocean vitality is paramount for all life. Already we have lost 30% and 14% of phytoplankton in the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans respectively since the 80s. Specifically, we must counteract the damaging effects of excess carbon dioxide and acidification from our polluting habits.

Consistently communicate creatively simple & short water conservation messages'. Put up illustrations on water conservation on the ceiling of the hair-washing cubicle. When patrons/clients are reclining on the chair to get their hair washed, the illustration will be right in their vision. The sound and feel of the water on the head and the message above will engage the various senses of the person to make a sub-conscious impact. In those 3+ minutes of hair wash, the person will have 2 options – close eyes or see a beautiful & often funny illustration.
The recycling hockey table purpose is to make people to throw their empty cans in the correct bin in order to recycle them. The difference with this table is that you can play and get fun with a can before you throw it away; the can will be the disc and when you score it will go to a close deposit in the table’s bottom.

The problem is ...when we go to fast food or any restaurant where the food is consume in containers of plastic or paper we produce lots or garbage that can be recycled but nowadays is just throw in litter bins without care if this is paper or plastic o organic garbage... and is boring to just throw it :( The proposed prototype is a funny recycling litter bin where you can throw your garbage but clasifiying it. The funny dump has a touch screen and when you recycle the screen show you a different puzzle that you can arm in few seconds depending of the puzzle.
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.
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!

En nyttig idé om hur hundbajs kommer till nytta! Bygg pantabajs-automater där bajset vägs och en summa pengar motsvarande bajsets vikt går direkt till välgörande ändamål såsom hundräddningscenter i sverige, ju mer hunden bajsar desto mer pengar blir det!

The streets are full of chewing gum stuck to the pavement and cigarette butts. So this wall mounted chewing gum/ ashtray bin is to help people be encouraged to bin there waste. When you put in either used chewing gum or cigarettes in to the top the front screen will come on and take a photo of you and/ or your friends. Once the photo has been taken it will be automatically be uploaded on to a website and then you can go on it and see your-self.
The negative mood of the great majority of people that can result on further violence or isolation. To make people realize that they have enough reasons to be happy, they just need a detonator to speak out and share them.
These days all the people is seeking to be famous, to be broadcasted, express themselves; this “Happy Booth”, located in any public space, is a nice way to do this.
Take your best guess at the true or false statement and place your hand under your answers side. Motion detector senses it, the side of the correct answer lights up.

There is nothing like a little curiosity to quickly get people involved and forming some good habits.
