Basketball Bin

2009-12-16 10:22 - 0 Kommentarer

The striking simplicity of this installation proves that the combination of sports and waste disposal is an effective and fun way to change people's behaviour to better. During a couple of days of filming, our Basketball Bin disposal unit was widely appreciated and used by the customers of a nearby fastfood restaurant. The installation consists of a readymade Basketball bin, wood and a trashbag with masking tape net-decor. Inskickat av Sascha Nelle, Simon Frambach and Rosa Heinz.

Let Children Grow Up Recyling!

2009-12-15 17:51 - 0 Kommentarer

Children interact with each other, by inventing various games. The most common behavior of children is to climb and get on high places. Psychologists explain this behavior, by children’s’ attempt to see the world from “above”. Children are also very curious and are not afraid from heights. By proposing this installation, we believe to get children involved into the practice of recycling. Such interactive bins can make children aware of their possibilities to throw rubbish in various ways.

Supermarket Waiting Line

Supermarket Waiting Line

2009-11-20 10:35 - 0 Kommentarer

The use of dividers on the supermarket checkout transport belt is quite common. The dividers usually are put in a gully by the checkout person. the dividers usually are concentrated at the end side, where they are put in the gully, not at the beginning, where they are needed. By giving sounds to the sliding dividers people will be tempted to slide them to the other people at the beginning of the transport belt. Additionally there can be a speed meter to look at the speed of your slide. But this can become dangerous, so maybe a catching net at the end of the gully.

Airport Security Carnival

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?

Recycled Vending Machine

2009-11-24 16:13 - 0 Kommentarer

In some countries people don't see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Soda Recycling-Vending Machine that will allow everybody to purchase a new icy soda by paying with their old cans! How it works? Once the machine has confirmed that is in fact a soda can (and no plastic or glass bottles for example) and the consumer has selected the drink, the old can goes to the inner container, the mechanism activates and the buyer gets a nice icy and refreshing soda!

Fun Fountain

2009-12-16 14:39 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

Change Music with Hand Washing

Change Music with Hand Washing

2009-12-09 14:08 - 0 Kommentarer

This is an idea for sinks that will sense the movement of a person washing there hands which will then affect the music playing in the restroom. Examples could include beat mods, scratching, loop play, pitch change, tempo control, etc (cross your eyes to match the pictures of the sink and view in 3d). Inskickad av Matt Vaughan.

Dog Peeing Zone Station

2009-12-16 11:36 - 0 Kommentarer

There are thousands of residents in New York City who have dogs for pets. People carry plastic bags to pick up after their dogs but there is no clean up for urine. Urine is very acidic, and destroys concrete sidewalks, plants and trees. Acid from urine eats right through the bark of a tree, and cambial zone straight to the wood zone, which destroys the trees defense system. Urine also contains a lot of salt that deprives the plants of water and burns their roots.

The Ground is Made of Lava!

2009-12-15 21:59 - 0 Kommentarer

The problem i'm attempting to solve is to reawaken interest in public parks which, within cities, often go underused and under appreciated. In the most basic terms, this would be a series of footprints, applied in anything from chalk to plastic cutouts that hammer into the ground (similar to a tent stake) and 'start' at a point near a public park.

There will be 2 small sensors in the recycling bin that will detect rubbish or Movement and once triggered it will activate the speaker which will then say “Thanks.” but then will say an interesting fact like “ You have just saved the average person 10% of work of making a coke can or crisp packet or something the same and that will go far to be used by someone else or you never know it could end up that you drinking out of the same can you have used before”.

Talk to the plants - save the planet

When you talk to the plants they expire oxygen that reduces the green house effect. Make them talk! Inside the sunflowers there are mounted microphones and speakers. With a speech syntezeiser they can listen, answer, laugh and cry.
They can talk!

The container "hungry cigar" invited the smoker to throw the butt in it! You can not go wrong container, he is a great cigar! His red face is the place to extinguish your cigarette. No more dirty walls! The butt rotates in the tube and get to the bottom with a funny thank! You calm his appetite! The meter will reveal how many cigarette butts are deposited in it!

Could it be that men are not concentrating enough that is the reason behind disgusting men's rooms all over the world? Hopefully, the placement of a target in the toilet bowl can speak to men's competitive side and make aiming carefully a little bit more fun!

Wall Mounted Ashtray

2009-12-15 17:03 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

Recycle Fun

2009-12-16 13:27 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

The Presence of Digital Money

2009-11-30 11:29 - 0 Kommentarer

Credit cards make life so much more easier that you do not have to carry stacks of moneys any more. Every time when you buy something the only thing you use is just a piece of card. But sometimes it also makes consumption unreasonable. People lost the sense of physical money. I created some new concepts of credit cards to remind people that digital money also has the similar physical attribute as the old money. They are not just numbers. You can feel it so that you can try to control your consumption.

Velcro Grocery Bag

2009-12-15 16:32 - 0 Kommentarer

The main problem of the green grocery bag is that people forget it at home. We wanted to change the mindset of shoppers when it comes to bags: today it costs them in Toronto 5 cents for every plastic bag. It is obvious that a cost is not a deterrent of forgetfulness. We want them to think of the green bag in terms of savings. To that effect we are proposing a grocery bag that you can stick velcro grocery list items on. This saves the shopper time from having to write a list or call their spouse to tell them what they need to buy. It also saves their sanity because.

Wii like batteries

2009-12-15 15:34 - 0 Kommentarer

Currently mobile electronics (like the wii remote) runs on batteries which are either used once and thrown out or they are rechargeable and create carbon emissions with each charge. On the other hand, humans are becoming lazier than ever before. By having a kinetically charged battery, it would never have to be thrown out, would never have to use carbon emitting electricity and would cause the human user of the wii to perform a decent level of exercise. The batteries would have the same dimensions as current AA batteries and would fit seamlessly into the Wiimote.
