The problem is that many people forget to water their plants and many plants are dying, so I invented a cool solution so the plants live longer.
The solution is to make a flowerpot that talk and flashes a red light. The flowerpot would start saying “water me!” “Time to water me!” and the flowerpot will have a red light and it will flash as it talks. It will flash and talk 3 times a day. The flowerpot needs batteries.

Most batteries become highly hazardous at the end of their useful life.
Therefore it is necessary to collect them for appropriate disposal or recycling.
The idea is to make an eye-catching mechanism (similar to the one in Charlie Chaplins movie ‘Modern Times’) that is activated through batteries. Every inserted battery makes the mechanism turn for several seconds. The more batteries are inserted, the longer the machine is working. Inskickat av Bernhard Neuwirth och Alina Avscharova
This group of litter bins move and dance throughtout the space, talking to people inviting them to dispose of their litter. This group of bins can easily assemble themselves together by the cleaning personnel to be emptied at the end of each day. These bins encourage people to use the bins and promote a higher level of public interaction as well as providing entertainment and a element of quirky fun.

The Leaf Launcher is a device that loads leaves into the leaf launcher bag and launches them out of your yard. After the bag is full and totally compressed, you the slide the lid on. You can then aim through the telescope on top and pull the trigger. The leaves will go flying up to 30 feet. It depends on the wind and if the leaves are wet, though. When the leaf launcher bag is empty, you fill it up again and do the process over again. For storage the bag clips off and the stand folds up. The Leaf Launcher is a fun way to rid your yard of leaves and simple to use! Inskickat av Chase Tucker
People often leave their offices at the end of the day and forget the lights on. This is bad for the company and for the environment. Think about it: if a person works from 8am to 6pm, the lights should be on for only 10 hours, but if they forget to turn it off, it's on for 24 hours, more than twice the necessary. So, can we solve that problem by making turning off the lights fun? My idea is to have a "polite light" that thanks the person every time he/she turns it off. We could use different voices and different languages to say thank you, found in movies or music.
Daphne, the funny Waste Paper Bin will help us!
When we think about recycling, waste paper recycling is perhaps one of the first areas that springs to mind as many of us have been doing this for many years.
Waste paper recycling covers a wide variety of different types of paper. We can recycle newspapers, magazines, junk mail, office paper, holiday brochures, catalogues and white directories (e.g. phone books).
Can we get more people to throw waste paper into the funny bin?
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).
The problem: public water fountains are used less because many people buy bottled water under the impression that it is better, when in fact bottled water often comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is, bottled water has lower safety standards, is harmful to the environment, and costs up to 1,900 more per liter. What if drinking from water fountains was fun and educational?
Instead of getting up by a blasting and annoying sound, customized jokes (diverse) should hit the first note. After an increasingly drifting laugh the user should turn off the "alarm" by hula hooping it with whichever part of her/his body she/he wants to exercise. Thus, the product won't only promote a funner but healthier morning wake up.

Rainbow Race Treadmill is a fun way to exercise. We took the concept of Nintendo Mario Kart and applied it to a treadmill. While running on the treadmill, the runner will focus on a screen in front of the treadmill that displays the rainbow race track in Mario Kart. Also, the treadmill itself has a rainbow pattern to imitate the idea that the runner is actually running on the rainbow race track. The runner can get bonuses while running, which creates an enjoyable running experience. The runner can go as fast or slow as she or he wants to accommodate all ages and exercise abilities.
So many gloomy faces can be seen nowadays on bus, tram, we can meet angry car drivers and rushing masses on the streets. One smile can break this negative wave. Smiling is good to our body and soul, and it also generates a chain reaction: if you smile to someone, he will instinctively smile back. The theory is that a chocolate automat is working with smile. The core of the automat is a face recognizing software that decides if someone smiles or not. Also with this program only one chocolate per person could be given. Inskickat av Edit Tangl.
How about saving lives with something as simple as a sticker? Hybrid image shows different pictures depending on the distance of the viewer. The idea is using hybrid image on a sticker and stick it to your rear car window. This will warn the car behind you if they get too close and prevent accident.

What’s the need?
Connecting with nature as a Living and not only an existing being.
This ideas will help educate and create a connect between us humans and Mother Nature through trees. Deforestation is on the rise in many countries. Nations are working hard to cut down pollution and stop global warming. This simple gesture is one step in building a relationship between an individual and our planet. Going one step ahead and asking the common man to help plant a little sapling.
Concept for Fun theory
There are Trees most often planted on the side walk.
The machine will take any kind (and color) of plastic bags. It will compress them towards the walls of a transparent bin tube. the bin will also be in various shapes (animals, cars, trees etc) There will be a whole line of shapes for the bins, so that in each location it will be different and new! When enough plastic bags are thrown inside, a colorful statue will be created.
Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Inskickad av Gilles Bonifait.
When was the last time anyone chose Walking instead of a Moving Walkway? I certainly can’t remember & anyways, who wants to walk that boring route. The Magic Slatewalk will change all that with a little Magic & Fun. The Slatewalk is basically the Magic slate(that amazing lo-fi toy when you were little) on a giant scale. This time you don’t need a stylus or even fingers, just let your feet or trolley do the drawing. Besides being a whole lot of fun, the exercise you get along with it makes it a combo you won’t want to miss! ‘Nuff Said.
Imagine you and I everyhwhere, children and adults alike, gathering leaves, newspaper, cereal boxes, grass, papyrus, "plastic" or anything with fiber or oil in it. Take all this MUST BE TRASH & throw it in THEtrashmagMIXER@HOMEbag.com which pulps whatever you incorporate & combines it with some glue, or tree (pine-needles) sap, or we could even add our own special ingredient (TBA) for a small free. In minutes, out comes multi-colored-sheets of paper. 'Sow' now, you & the rest of the kids can planet, SELL it, share'em, BUY'em &/or give away your HOME MADE bags.
As a method of deterring jaywalking (crossing the street out of the crosswalk), make the crosswalk like a piano (similar to the staircase already done). To make it so people don't stay in the crosswalk, make it stop working when the light changes to "DON'T WALK" and start working again for the next cycle. This should make people want to cross the street in the right place at the right time. Hopefully people can continue to cross streets safely to decrease the number of people that get hit by cars.

ICK, germs! They can make you sick. Very sick! Germs (viruses and bacteria in this case) cause respiratory and stomach ailments ranging from drippy noses and mild sore throats to life threatening illnesses such as diarrhea, flu and pneumonia. We spread germs quickly, mostly by touching our nose, eyes, mouth and other people. If people would thoroughly wash their hands for twenty seconds every time they use a public restroom, the number of those illnesses could be greatly reduced. Who says?
