Every time we go to a recycling point we will be given a fact about ecology, or what is happening to the earth and solutions that could be done.
Recycling points must to be part of our daily life. We sometimes don´t know anything about the importance of recycle, so the bin could help us to know more.
Funny that a bin can speak to us, and educational for everyone. Inskickat av Veronica M. Guerrero
Cars often have "faces" - the front grille and headlights can make a face, the tail-lights and trunk can make a face. Many of these faces look angry, dour, and even menacing. Why not design other options? It would be more fun to see cheerful, mysterious, serene, whimsical faces when driving. It might be harder to get mad at a car that looked like it was smiling at you.

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.
A bike that every time you paddle it sounds with harmonious music. Nowadays a lot of people use cars which produce carbon dioxide. People would chose to ride their bikes instead, enjoying a nice tune while saving the planet. An exercise bike with this function would help people take off some pounds of weight while having a nice time.

We have become disconnected from the way we generate power and have allowed the use of fossil fuels to become a primary contributor to global warming. Powertopia is a fun, educational playground that teaches children and their parents about renewable energy, the principles of power generation and energy storage. By harnessing the energy that children naturally produce on playgrounds, we can develop their intuition of renewable energy principles. This can ultimately lead to a change in the way children interact with power and understand electricity. Inskickat av Oliver Haas
Once every year, for example November 1st, children and grown-ups together gather up in communities in order to repair and create new stuff out of old, unused stuff . This day could be celebrated all over the world, so that people can drop in and meet new people, discussing ideas, swopping, making, and developing old boring stuff to fit new needs. Pair up together with someone you don't know well, young or old, start inventing and write down ideas that make the world better.

The flying bicycle is an entertainment thermometer. It invites people who are overcrowd in the traffic or people that simply are passing by. It’s a proposal to generate sustainable and clean energy, using your own body. It is for all the ages, white and costless. Just get on and ride, the energy that you produce whill you twirl the pedals is like the energy which pushs the pinwheels. The more you ride, the more the pinwheels move! The flying bicycle is a proposal to change minds through a different life style. Use your energy, move foward and go far! Submitted by Rasputines.
How can we make people wash their hands after using public toilets? A new doorknob could be the solution for this problem: After using the toilet, you have to touch the doorknob in order to unlock and open the door. So a doorknob with a stamp on its backside could put some colour or a funny message on your hand. The ink can easily be washed off with some water and soap - but of course, it will remain for a while if you do not wash your hands. So everybody can see that your hands are still dirty.
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.

Att panta är viktigt, men tänk vad mycket roligare det skulle vara om man fick se vad som händer med PET-flaskorna efter att man stoppat in dem i maskinen. Idag hör vi en massa spännande kross-ljud, men vi saknar den visuella njutningen. Lösning: pantkrossen - den transparenta pantautomaten. Stoppa in din flaska och fascineras av hur kompakt den blir av krossens effektiva mekanismer.

Are you angry? Are you shouting? Howling? The Laughing Out Loud (LOL) poppet will help you! The LOL poppet stands there on the table, like a silent half orange. He responds only to the loud, yelling voice. The poppet relieves the tenseness, the stress with a hysterically, long-lasting laugh. He tries to put somebody’s mind at rest, to induce the howling, yelling man it toward laughing. The angry person does not notice in the first phase, then he take note to the strange laugh, and began laughing.
The Problem: Our world is being contaminated by many things. One of them is batteries. Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when batteries are improperly disposed. Batteries may produce potential problems or hazards like pollute the lakes and streams as the metals vaporize into the air when burned. Also expose the environment and water to lead and acid and more.Solution: I invented “The Battery Can”. This “Battery Can” can be used by adults, but it is much more fun for kids!!
I could see that the people always prefer the electric doors then the normal doors because the electric doors always open themselves and the normal doors you have to push or pull. My idea is that when someone open the normal doors it will have a camera that takes your picture and when you open it, the picture will appear on a big screen which will say welcome to you! It will be fun to see your picture on a big screen. Inskickat av Alejandro Valladares.
We want to show people how with a little action they can contribute to a bigger one, and a better world with it. We are using a teddy bear who lost its owner. With a walkie talkie inside the little bear we ask people for a little trip. Six families helped the bear Morrison to get from one side to another of the Retiro park in Madrid, they just needed to walk for some meters, but together it was a considerable distance.
