Learn with comics!

2009-12-16 18:59 - 0 Comments

I remember myself strugling to learn things that I found terribly uninteresting at the time. 15 years later and the same thing happens to the new students. I have a solution for this. Just transform the chapter of your book into a comic right after the lecture! If the teacher is good in drawing can he/she draws the comic on the whiteboard! The students will be delighted to learn history or any other subject that way, is there any greater plot than real history? They can add colours in special events or make a whole book of comics! Anything is possible when you have fun!

Distorted mirrors have always been fun for everybody - so why not use them at the bus stops, where we spend countless hours every week, waiting for the bus.

We all are humans and therefore we have different opinions on Everything. From the smallest detail to the future of mankind. We like to discuss things and we like to be given chance to express our opinion. And there is nothing wrong with that. If only we could do something good while loudly expressing ourselves. Welcome to Earth Vote For Everyone! The bigger skeptic of global warming you are the more fun you will have by switching of the light. Remember, every vote counts!

Gotcha - Overspeeding Device

2009-11-30 14:04 - 0 Comments

Imagine every car you see on road is fitted with a little device I would like to name “Gotcha”!! This is like a black box which is hidden away in every car (will be good fun trying to find it!) . “Gotcha” is nothing more than a combination of receiver and sender unit with inbuilt GPS. The receiver unit of “Gotcha” receives a signal from a tower (similar to mobile network tower) which constantly sends road speed and location data to all vehicles in its range.

The Friendly Toilet

2009-11-24 15:53 - 0 Comments

One of the greatest problems in a house is the toilet. Men tend to leave the toilet seat up, and some don't even bother to take it up, with hygenic consequences. This toilet seat talks to the man, when he takes it up it shows interest in what he is doing ( "how was your day?" "have to go again?") and when the seat goes down again, the seat gives a compliment ("that was a good one" "you are really amazing") .
The exact messages depend upon the users. Some would probably like some more daring messages while others would be offended by them, and probably prefer more gallant messages.

Can you make people recycle more paper? What if the paper you would bring to the recycle bin could be weighted and a discount ticket to buy more paper would be printed according to the amount of paper recycled? This could reduce the amount of paper needed to be produced.

Fun Tram Tickets

2009-11-04 13:57 - 0 Comments

This is my idea to use positive reinforcement to encourage people to buy tickets when they travel on public transport. The idea is that through buying a tram ticket and having it stamped onboard, you get the chance to enter an instant win lottery. A pretty fun way to reward people for buying a ticket.

With cigarettes there are two problems. Firstly people smoke them and secondly they throw cigarette butts on the street. My invention is fun and can change peoples behaviour for the better. The bin has a sound system, a sensory system, a mini player and an open mouth. When people put out cigarettes on the bin's tongue and throw it in the mouth the sensory switch will play a cough sound automatically. Submitted by Kakha Khabeishvili.

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 Interactive Ashtray Stand tries to make the process of stumping the cigarette fun. Basically it has 2 major parts: a "stumping part", which is a resistant material to stump on (metal for example), but also a touchpad to control the screen, the second major part of the IAS. During stumping a program is actually used via the touchpad, which can be a drawing program like Paint, or a quiz, or a poll etc.

Based on the theories of Coulomb summarizing:
"when a magnetic field is cut by a conductive material a displacement of electrons takes place"
Our checked project is to place self-adhesive imams in the soles of the shoes,
When these shoe-imams move on the tiles that contains the reels, electricity flows are generated
that will be added to other tiles, through simple electronic reducers of voltage and current it will store this energy in batteries.

Approximately 35 billion batteries are used throughout the world each year and despite efforts to encourage consumers to recycle rechargeable batteries, about 179,000 tons of battery waste ends up in US landfills alone. Because batteries in municipal landfills and trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of heavy metals and other toxic substances into the air and water, battery waste prevention and recycling strategies are essential. Welcome the Battery Beast a friendly, battery-eating monster who makes safe battery disposal and recycling FUN.

Eco-Fountain

2009-12-15 17:23 - 0 Comments

The problem: public water fountains are used less because many people buy bottled water under the impression that it is better, when in fact bottled water often comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is, bottled water has lower safety standards, is harmful to the environment, and costs up to 1,900 more per liter. What if drinking from water fountains was fun and educational?

How can you get people to turn of the lights? On our school, the light are sometimes on all night which waste alot of energy. Everyone knows that you should, but no one does. So, how do you get your classmates to prefer the light off instead of on. If the rooms transforms into other worlds; the future, deepsea, jurasic period, space or wonderland, perhaps people will choose lights off. To get a clue what will happen when you hit the switch, theres a ticket in a bag next to it for the experience in question.

Dunk N' Dump Bin

2009-12-16 18:15 - 0 Comments

Collection of garbage is a serious problem faced in Indian Urban areas. The lack of seriousness for channelizing the urban solid waste may well be associated with the lower density of the dustbins, but giving a reason to throw the waste into a bin could only be good for the cause. The design can potentially be attractive particularly for the younger generation, developing garbage throwing skills to showcase accuracy in the throwing arm. For those who prefer dropping the garbage in conventional way, a rectangular slot has been provided as well.

Problem tackled : reduce the number of single-use bags that are distributed or sold in supermarkets.
Solution:grant the right to people bringing along reusable bags to choose the music played in the supermarket. People are given tags (like barcodes) to stick on their bags. When entering the supermarket, they scan the tag and choose a song to play in the supermarket.

The Proximity Stereo

2009-12-15 20:56 - 0 Comments

Close driving is one of the greatest hazards on the road. Sometimes, because of distractions or lack of depth perception, people aren't even aware of how close they are to another driver or object. The Proximity Stereo detects when a driver is coming up too quickly on another object or car, and switches the music in the car to something the driver does not want to hear, not allowing the driver to return to his or her favourite music until the driver has backed off to a safe distance from the object.

Shining darkness

2009-12-15 14:47 - 0 Comments

People always forget to turn the lights off. We need to do something about it. So we came up with an idea to make the darkness glow. We think you could hire artists to use glow-in-the-dark paint to paint walls of schools and public buildings. That would encourage people to turn off the lights even when they are working in the room. If you use clear glow-in-the-dark paint you would have to turn off the lights to see the pretty pictures. It would save alot of energy.
