BAD BEHAVIOR: Toys cluttering the house and no one picking up toys. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: A device similar to a wastebasket would be placed on top of the toy box or toy storage container. This device would have a simple counter that counts the number of toys per second or minute that were put into the container. As the number increases the device will get louder and louder with bells and whistles to encourage the children to put away the toys.

In this dog poo bin, when the owner of the dog throw poo, within the bag that the bin offers, into the bin, a ring bell sounds and a message emerge from the messages dispenser, like a fortune cookie. The messages could be famous phrases, fun messages or good advices. This could make this task funnier. Inskickad av Ricardo Smith & David Vallejo

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.

Att panta är viktigt, men tänk vad mycket roligare det skulle vara om man fick se vad som händer med PET-flaskorna efter att man stoppat in dem i maskinen. Idag hör vi en massa spännande kross-ljud, men vi saknar den visuella njutningen. Lösning: pantkrossen - den transparenta pantautomaten. Stoppa in din flaska och fascineras av hur kompakt den blir av krossens effektiva mekanismer.

Everyone wants the best parking spot. Typically, the best spot is closest to the destination (the mall, the park, the school, the gym). This simple idea rewards those drivers who park furthest from the destination. They get protection from sunlight, rain or snow, keeping their car cool and dry. What's more, they get energy from the extra exercise and fresh air they receive walking to their destination. This canopy would span the back parking spaces of the parking lot. It could be used for advertising space for either the destination or for major marketers.
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.
By using competition and social networking, we can make walking places more fun, encouraging fitness and a reduced reliance on cars for short trips. This is a pedometer (step-counter) that can be either an application for a smart phone or a separate USB device. It counts your steps through the day, then uploads them automatically to a website that tracks everyone's steps. On the website, you can compete against others, as well as create groups to compete against each other groups, so your office or school could have competitions within itself and with other schools and organizations.
Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.
Kids are eating less vegetables and more meat and fast food products. These refined foods are bad both for the organism and because of the intensive resources they require. This behavior should be changed towards eating more fruits, vegetables and less refined products, from a young age.
This is way kind should be motivated to eat vegetables. The idea is to let the kid choose what to eat and then give him/her pencils, in each of the colors of the chosen foods, and a contour figure to color. Varied food intake, more colors for drawing!
Chore Bore is a device designed to help parents and kids get the chores done with some fun! Simply record a pleasant message of yourself reminding your child of their task, set a time, push the big button and walk away. Perky, upbeat music will play with soft and playful lights. As the time ticks on, the music becomes more dire, the lights blink more frantically and the parents voice will become louder and weirdly warped. If the child completes the task before the time runs out, an alarm will demand a reward! However.... If the timer runs out, an alarm will demand punishment!
I could see that the people always prefer the electric doors then the normal doors because the electric doors always open themselves and the normal doors you have to push or pull. My idea is that when someone open the normal doors it will have a camera that takes your picture and when you open it, the picture will appear on a big screen which will say welcome to you! It will be fun to see your picture on a big screen. Inskickat av Alejandro Valladares.
Playing in the public is often limited to the kids in a family outing to the shopping centres. Parents have little chance to participate in the games that their children are involved in. We ask: How can we create better parent -child interactions in play? The answer proposed: The Bubble Board. Taking advantage of the height of a parent, he or she can create trails of bubbles on an interactive wall as the parent walks or moves pass it.As the parent creates bubbles, the children get to play with these bubbles on the wall, bursting or moulding them by hand.
We asked ourselves, how we can help people have more fun walking to work. We decided to play hopscotch. The video submission depicts the results of our game. We chose the busiest intersection in the Philadelphia business community. We have learned that from Ghana to Cambodia, Peru to Iran, hopscotch is universally played and loved.

The touchscreen, which is positioned at the head is an interactive panel to communicate with Buddy. Through this he gives you the instructions for use, It shows you the quantity of produced energy, and for what you can use it.
I remember myself strugling to learn things that I found terribly uninteresting at the time. 15 years later and the same thing happens to the new students. I have a solution for this. Just transform the chapter of your book into a comic right after the lecture! If the teacher is good in drawing can he/she draws the comic on the whiteboard! The students will be delighted to learn history or any other subject that way, is there any greater plot than real history? They can add colours in special events or make a whole book of comics! Anything is possible when you have fun!
