On the front of the machine will be a LCD screen which is touch sensitive. the person inserts a dollar bill and then chooses which oregami figure they would like to have created. each figure may represent different charities. the machine will be filled with pre-made figures. after the person has chosen a figure, two previously recorded arms come into the screen to make the figure. we will add sound effects(kung fu) and speed up the footage to make it more entertaining. after it is created the figure will be dispensed out of the machine, down a small canal which will empty out into a fountain.
Most airports provide an automatic walkway for people to either rest as they head towards their gate or get there a bit quicker when walking. Unfortunately, these too require the use of much electricity by keeping them running all day, every day. As someone who is interested in other languages myself, I believe that there are many people out there who are as well and would take the no-walkway route to hear some phrases in different languages.
What do you while you are waiting for a bus or in metro?
What do you think about moving your body and engaging in group activities?
A healthy mind is in a healthy body .. with so much around us we spare less time to work out and do not move our bodies a lot. On the other hand, with all those calculators , we are not using our minds to make those simple calculations ..
So let's make good use of the time and make the waiting fun , and turn calculations into a semi-dancing activity:
Waiting at crosswalks frustrates all of us, more or less often. We're all in a rush at sometimes and don't feel like waiting. But lots of accidents happen because of jaywalking. How can we make waiting at crosswalks more fun? My idea involves pressure sensitive devices, resembling piano keys but in differing colors, and speakers alongside the crosswalk as shown in the picture. The rules of the 'game' are as follows: people waiting can step on one of the bar-shaped devices (or they can choose not to stand on any of the 'bars').
An Openworld "Game of Your Dreams" aims to engage players around the world in virtually defining what they see as workable ideals - projects to develop exemplary areas where self-funding innovations in learning, health, water, food, and the environment can be introduced.
The main idea is to encourage people to donate used books using fun, music and interactivity!
A collecting depository will be installed on a very crowded street or avenue. On the top of the machine, a big and wide LCD screen with cameras shows the message bellow.
“Books are light and imagination. Share them and be a star!”
When a book is deposited, the donor chooses a kind of music (jazz, rock, pop, mambo, classic, etc.). After pressing the rhythm button, music starts and the image of the public is displayed by the LCD Screen.
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
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!

When it is raining, most of the big scale shopping malls would place an "umbrella plastic bag stand" at the entrances, prevent the wet umbrellas bring the water to make the floor slippery. Even it would prevent accidents, but it produces loads of plastic bags in a very short time when the customers leave the mall.
Instead we can use Dog the dryer!
Bigger umbrella can use a bigger size dog.
Smaller dog for a rather short umbrella.
Just simply place the wet umbrella into the dog body,
grab the tail of th dog, then,
"Save power, don't forget to turn off the light," we are told. And yet, often we do forget - for it's so easy to turn the light on, sometimes we don't even remember doing it. What if turning on the light required us to work a bit harder? And what if it was fun? The swing light exaggerates the familiar rope-switch light to emphasize the action of what we are doing when we turn on light, channeling electricity from far-off power sources. The stronger the pull, the brighter the light, the longer the pull, the longer the light stays on.
The problem is that people are always going up the escalator and not the stairs. How can we make them change? We can make the Billy Jean stair case. The Billy Jean stair case is a set of stairs that lights up around your foot when you step on it. The Billy Jean stair case should make people stop useing the escalator because it is fun to do.

We always forget to wash our hands after we go to the restroom. So the idea is to put a mini game on the mirror and the buttons are on the bottom. You will have 30 seconds to wash them and win the mini game.You will have three buttons on the sink, the buttons have a protector against water. The mirror will have 5 different mini games and are chose randomly. If you win bubbles will come out from different parts of the room, but if you loose you will be splashed by a ballon that is up on the roof but inside. The mirror will say the instructions on the right in a paper.
Using Augmented Reality technology, our project is to make the crossing street only in crosswalk a fun habit. With two video cameras and two big screens, the crosswalk will be filmed on-line, the pedestrians will see their own images on screen, in front, stepping in exciting scenarios during the crossing, in both directions.
Little things can make a big difference. So when a group of people join to spare our planet's resources, even if for a brief moment, that makes a huge difference. We spend too much of our planet's energy and so little of ours, that doesn't seem fair. So mix sedentarism and energy consuming, add a bit of fun to it, and we bake a fresh new idea. Just out of the oven: Cine Eco. This ecological wave claims for new ecological ideas. Movies have become one of peoples favorite pastime.
People tend to pass doormats in public entrances without actively cleaning their shoes. This is a problem, especially in winter, since the shoes are more dirty during the rainy season.
We developed a doormat that increases the time, spent cleaning your shoes and intensifies the contact between the mat´s surface and the sole. But how? By transforming the doormat into a fun sliding puzzle.
The time spent on the doormat increased significantly and people started to interact. The Fun Theory was verified.

Humane societies are often understaffed and crowded, yet it is difficult to get awareness into communities and encourage people to donate. However, many do have a certain weakness to two things – cute animals and delicious candy. Hubert, the mascot of a humane society, needs your help. When you donate to Hubert’s hungry tummy, he will reward you with a wonderfully bright gumball from his bum bum. Our furry friend will be placed in public places such as malls and grocery stores. Donating to a good cause has never been more silly or fun than this.

Problem tackled: Reducing the cigarette litter in front of public places.
Solution: Make it fun to stub out a cigarette in an ashtray. On the tray is mounted a video screen where some funny aliens are floating around. The screen is equipped with some kind of heat sensing. The goal is to kill aliens by stubbing out cigarettes on them, but aliens flee when they feel some heat, enriching the game with a feedback loop. Funny sounds or animations can be added depending on whether the alien was hit, missed or burned.
