Instead of putting chewing gum here and there people can be encouraged to stick it within a certain pattern on the walls to create graffiti, mural or any other kind of wall art. Someone needs to start the process by perhaps drawing an outline on the wall and sticking the first few pieces. People will stick chewing gum of different shapes, sizes and colors creating exciting and unpredictable results. People can ignore the outlines also to create an evolving art form, growing and changing with every new contributor. Inskickat av Prithu Paul
PROBLEM: The majority of Junior High students and High School students too, hate that sometimes you forget your combination or maybe your lock doesn’t work very well and gets stuck all times. Well is time for that to stop. We deserve to have fun when we want to open our locks
This is designed to stop people from littering the street with cigarette buts. It uses the game of chance to make people want to bin there cigarettes. It is a wall mounted ashtray with a fruit machine built in. When you put your finished cigarette in to the top of the ashtray it will start the game. You only get one try. You pull down the handle and spin the wheels, depending on how the wheels stop you will get a prize. The prize could be a piece of chewing gum, or a whole pack.

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.
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
This idea is to promote physical activity while having fun at the same time. The idea is to have a giant etch-a-sketch floor with magnetic slip ons on people feet and they can just draw away with their feet. I would put this somewhere with some traffic like the mall. This would of course be free of charge and I think kids would have so much fun with it, and probably adults too.

It is very cold and dark in Ukraine. This mobile construction can be easily located along the roads and change the situation. Push the red pedals to get warm and produce electricity for: light autostop signal, light for comfort, light for fun. Inskickad av Ksenia Sergeeva.
Appropriating the marginal languages of disused and abandoned urban forms through public sculptural intervention, Project Snow Machine reacquaints city dwellers with their environment. Project Snow Machine is an urban intervention that borrows from the typology of municipal forms (signposts, signpost anchors, and parking meters) and recodes them, functionally transforming a public space into a playground. The camouflaged steel snowball-making machines designate a slightly subversive space for wintry play and jocular battle.
Lots of people love going out, drinking and having fun!
After a while they feel the need of looking for a toilet but most of the times they provide to do their business somewhere else.
In order to avoid bad smells and dirty environment in the city, the idea we propose is about making the public urinals a funny place to interact with.
In bathrooms, many people don't like using the hot hand dryers vs. the alternative paper towel. There has to be a way to make those more fun. Perhaps instead of just hearing air blow out of the thing, maybe music instead, and not just the same song over and over. Use different songs that many people will like. They might actually use the dryer longer so they can finish the song, thus drying their hands effectively.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, between their morning and afternoon runs, a group of Bus Drivers from Broward County Schools, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, take a ride themselves. The "Wellness Bus" transports the drivers from their worksites to Body Mechanics, a local gym that participates in the employee free gym membership benefit for school board employees. They excercise, receive complimentary personal training services, belly dance, stretch, and do Pilates.
The idea is to teach compassion in a fun and interactive way. This is a video game that has three choices of play: (1)Three ethics questions, (2) Choosing the ending of a video scenario or (3) Viewer watches a short video depicting life as the member of a selected group (Autism, other disability, homeless, other culture). Machine would be banked with MANY scenarios and information – as so not to become predictable. Original purpose: autism awareness, but can be used for various other reasons.
Nowadays, music is part of everyone's life and songs are a powerful tool to retain information through lyrics. If you just play the first notes of any well known song, almost everybody can sing it, even after many years. Why not learning geography with songs?
This Automatic Dispenser has a FUN ADDON: a SLOT MACHINE
A PRESSED CAN could be used as a Slot Machine COIN, customer can win a new drink and TIN CANS will be automatically stored in order to be recycled.
Recycling aluminium is 20 times more energy-efficient than making it from scratch. This funny dispenser allow us to recycle. Submitted by Vittorio Pavesi.
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.
We often think that public bathrooms are a dirty mess, and most of the time we are right. One of the things that contributes to it, is people peeing on the floor. Sometimes they are just lazy, irresponsible or drunk, etc. So to help on the 'pee' problem it would be nice if we could play a little game to give all the guys some focus while relieving themselves. It would work like the famous GENIUS® game, having it installed right in the middle of the public urinals. The more you hit on the right colors more points you'll get. And I guess the more you had to drink longer you will play.
The idea is to print funny quotes, jokes, or any other funny message on a floor sticker and then apply it where people stand to form a queue (i.e. in front of money tills, ATMs, airport check-in desks, etc). Benefits: - People will have something funny and enjoyable to spend their time with, while waiting in a queue (queuing will become less boring). - People reading these messages will become more relaxed and less frustrated, hence will smile more.
A humouristic and ‘sadic’ way to stop people from throwing cigarette butts on the street.
Wouldn’t it be fun if you could just burn them out on a ‘screaming hand’?
Both on human statues (provided with special fireproof hands) and hand-shaped bins, in the most strategic locations, as well as at gas stations.

What if our food would be equipped with a special timer&player, something we should just start when we put our fresh products in the fridge. When the expiration date is approaching and we are not eating or drinking our food, the food itself will start whining and crying to warn us.
We would need nothing more than an adhesive plate or patch equipped with timer&player. The player will start crying and complaining louder and louder as the expiration date approaches. How stopping it? Drink your fresh food! The plate can be re-used on different food packaging for a loooooong time.
Following the philosophy of the fun theory, I propose to remake contemporary crossings in such a way that everybody would like to use them for crossing the road. This crossing, however, can be replaced by another crossing. Imagine you are in the Amazon rainforest and in front of you is an abyss with a wild river at the bottom. One way to get to the other side is to cross a liana bridge just in front of you. You have no other way because there are crocodiles down there. Who of us is not an adventurer?
