This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

The “Conscious Shower” is an alternative to reduce the amount of water spent in the shower in a fun way. To do that, a water meter has to be installed in the shower. It’s necessary to set up an amount of water enough for a shower (eg. 40 liters). So it will be possible to check in a screen how much water is being spent during the shower.
Have a giant basketball hoop over a plastics recycle been in any public high school. Like your glass recycler...have the hoop make noise and total points as drink bottles are recycled.
Same idea...different format. Big pinball type apparatus drop in recyclable at top it bangs off appropriate pinball type obstacles finally ca-chinging as it drops into the bin for requisite points.

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.
People that use bicycle for transportation don't always use the paths ment for them to circulate. Making it fun to use it not only will prevent accidents to people that already use bicycles for transportation but it will encourage people who don't to start using it. We can make it fun by putting obstacles like it was a race circuit, like bumps, zig-zag curves, tiny ramps. Going further we could even have leds that will lit when you pass over them like videogame's turbos. The path could be painted with paint that glow in the dark, so i'll be funner by night.

The idea is to make the boring task of waiting for the bus more enjoyable On the side wall of the bus stop there is an interactive touch screen. The screen broadcasts Trivia questions from a large questions bank. The idea is that the entire crowd within the bus stop can participate and shout answers, and finally select (by touching) the right answer to their knowledge. This is a fun and bonding experience for everyone in the bus stop, and most importantly it passes the time and makes people forget their busy schedule, at least until the bus arrives.
Airport Security Carnival
Can Fun Help us Catch Terrorists? Or at least help us survive airport security with our dignity and our sanity?
I fly all the time and realize that Airport security is a necessary evil. But would it be asking too much from the TSA to make it ever slightly more enjoyable? Instead of making everyone feel like a suspected terrorist, how about making people feel like honored VIPs who are getting special treatment?
If there was ever a universally hated activity that needed to be made more enjoyable, it’s the airport security line. How could we make it more fun?
Simple idea: you get a coin or a bunch of them, insert into the machine that will give you a puzzle piece. On the side it will have a board to complete the puzzle. Just find the one's missing and that's it. The more you donate, the more you'll play. Inskickat av Raphael Santos.
Whenever drivers try to park the car within the borders , a jackpot sound is heard as in a slot machine. A graphic of the slot machine is placed. So people try to park it correctly. With this the parking behavior is changed for better. Inskickad av Manoj Manduva
Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Inskickat av Simon Scherer.
What is the matter? We would like people to respect driving speed limits. But how? By reverting the concept: let’s reward the people who drive below the speed limit. Two ways for rewarding. After a radar control: 1) You get a chance to win a free car-wash (or so). 2) A special lightning effect occurs 50 meters behind the checkpoint, which allows you to see a monument or a building. (Or a fountain would pop out). Seb on behalf of the CI. Inskickat av Sebastien Morant
It would be good for the battle against climate change, if we could motivate multi-fuel car owners to really use the ethanol pump. So how can we make that experience more fun? If the drivers choose the ethanol pump, a group of highly efficient Pit Stop Engineers would do everything for him, just lika a real Formula One driver!

The problem that a lot of people do not do is recycling. Right now we really need to help the environment. So we have come up with a really fun way to get a lot more people to recycle a lot more. We are doing this because we are very concerned about the environment. Our solution (or theory) is to get people to recycle plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and bottle caps. We want to make it as fun as possible so that way we can get a lot more people enthusiastic about recycling and how it can be really fun. Here is what we plan to do.
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.
I'm waiting in line and getting bored with nothing to do and I don't dare to small talk to the people around me. The line is very long at the postoffice/ bank/ waitingroom/ hospital/ busstop ... and the clock is ticking very slowly. Waiting on my turn seems to take forever.
I - and all the people around me - like to take pictures with their cellphones on holidays, special occasions or just for no special reason. We can upload these to a local network connected to a video-projector that is showing the pictures very big on the wall.
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.
This project aims to create energy and entertain people while waiting at the bus stop.The goal is to use all energy created by man power, through jumping on a board on top of a spring.This will in turn create enough energy to power a lightbulb on the spot they are jumping on, at another nearby spot, or by creating them as part of a game (chess, dancing, etc).
It can also be extrapolated to other waiting areas according to their environment.
Our modern live is full of mobile electric devices. But all those devices needs electricity. Too much energy, at a time where we have global ecologic problems. Based on the concept of zero-emission multimedia, it was created a static device, where you can produce and get your own green energy - Instantly Spinning his wheel you produce the energy. 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.
People are not recycling their cans and bottles.
I think a fun way to recycle would change everybodys attitude by making a hockey recycling net. Its basically a hockey net loacated at a Recycle Depot. You have to shoot your cans and bottles in the net and you get points. Its fun and your helping the evironment!
