Well, the problem of tha trash cans is sometimes they are "invisible"!
Making them "visible" can be the challenge to clean our parks or streets.. u know.
everytime crossing the line which is asking "any trash?" is like our mother asking everytime: did u clean your hands? and the design by itself is so easy to understand, so familiar to the generations..

Traffic tetris

2009-12-15 20:38 - 0 Comments

There are motorists who try to be in the fast lane in spite of knowing that they would need to change lanes in a short distance

1) The stretch just before a junction is treated as a point for motorist to correct their lanes. This leads to confusion, traffic jams and accidents.

2) If which car is headed in what direction is known in advance then it would be easier to control traffic

3) Traffic Tetris makes this possible in a fun way.

To participate, every motorist needs to define his destination and the route he’d take. Vehicles heading in the same direction are given one color.

Recycle Booth

2009-11-17 12:31 - 0 Comments

Recycle Booth is a fun way to encourage people to recycle any sort of material. When you place the material (e.g. sheet of unwanted paper) into the corresponding compartment, the machine will be triggered. From then on, you follow the on screen instructions which will guide you through how to use the booth (which will act like a photo/sticker booth) to take a photo and after taking the photo, you can decorate it with the interactive pen attached to the machine and leave an on-screen message, e.g. "I recycled" or your name.

ReZoo

2009-12-16 15:02 - 0 Comments

ReZoo is a recycling machine/game for children that is designed to encourage recycling through fun. It is a three sided been, on each side accepting different recyclable item: bottles, paper and cans. Each side of the toy is a touch screen displaying animated animal character. In the idle state the animals are sad and bored, and when approached by a person they call for attention by making animal sounds. By inserting appropriate recyclable item, the animal will play with it a bit (juggle for example) and throw it into the recycling can on the screen.

In the city, metro, conventions , It is very common to find magazines, flyers and newspapers mixed in the garbage if not in the floor... when there are the first paper we could easily recycle!!! The PAPER TOILET serves to recuperate in a funny way all these papers by sitting on this special toilet like in a regular one, putting the papers in the middle of the "p" hole, and just flushing.... it's flawless!!!!
- It´s very simple, based in a daily symbol with a strong signification
- The 'P' for paper adapted as a sign in the ergonometric shape of the chair, to be seen from far away

The Subway Game

2009-12-15 22:44 - 0 Comments

This game makes commuting and waiting for trains a fun and stimulating experience. Three huge numbers are painted or pasted on the subway platforms, however not on one surface but several different ones on many levels of depth. The objective of the game is to find the viewpoint from where the color fields makes out a number. Should you stand at the wrong place the fields are incomprehensible. Once you've found the viewpoint where the number is visible you can find a plaque on the floor or closest wall with two small numbers.

Can we encourage cleanliness with a simple bit of fun?
Our idea makes hand-washing fun! Stepping on a pressure pad in front of the sink starts the bass and drums, turning the tap adds another layer of music, and pressing the soaps adds the final layer of music.

The Bounce Path

2009-11-20 10:59 - 0 Comments

As the world has modernized we have become over reliant on automobiles. Our consumption of fossil fuels have increased to devastating levels, causing the environment to shift to previously unvisited occurrences . With this change, we must find a way to reduce automobile traffic. By creating a fun walking commute, the world could be encouraged to walk rather than drive. The solution: the bounce path. This creation would create a fun way to travel rather than driving, thus reducing fossil fuel consumption and improving the environments health.

The Battery Can

2009-12-16 13:58 - 0 Comments

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!!

This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

Make shopping fun. Download from your smart mobile phone the shopping list into a display attached to your shopping cart. This will drive you through the store like a navigation system. Each time you pick up an article, this will be scanned by the display so it knows when you have completed your list. You also save time, don't need to get in line again, just pay and leave. You can choose from different movie themes so that your mission (shopping list) is like in the movies (finding treasures, rescuing people, saving the world). Submitted by Diego Santos.

The Red Light Player

Waiting for the red man to change on the traffic light, while necessary for maintaining your life, is a bummer. Our aim was making the wait pleasurable. We did it by posting a highly competent street musician in one side of a heavily traveled zebra crossing. Our guy plays when the light is red, and rests when it turns green. For our special operation we made double bass covers for famous songs containing words like "stop", "stand", etc.

Bus Stop Travelator

Waiting in line at bus stops could be a breeze. With the travelator, one doesn't have to wait agitatedly for the person in front to get into the bus. Moreover, there won't be any rude pushings. This travelator has a coordinated foot sensor start/stop control system, just like the conveyor belt at the supermarket cashier's. This way, people won't tumble over each other. A bus stop travelator will save time and encourage politeness by queuing up at the bus stop. Submitted by Jenn.

The negative mood of the great majority of people that can result on further violence or isolation. To make people realize that they have enough reasons to be happy, they just need a detonator to speak out and share them.

These days all the people is seeking to be famous, to be broadcasted, express themselves; this “Happy Booth”, located in any public space, is a nice way to do this.

Cigarettes gravebin

2009-12-15 21:09 - 0 Comments

Since cigarette butts are a big problem today, as it represent more than half of the litter thrown in the streets , I propose to make a “cigarette cemetery”. This means that there will be small bins that can be attached to the street lamps, garbage bins, traffic lights or panels from the bus stops. After you smoke a cigarette (you kill the cigarette) it would be nice to burry it in the “gravebin”. So when you throw the cigarette butt it should be played a part from the funeral song, or a voice could say “may it rest in peace”, “it was a good cig” and other things like this.

Speed limit competition

Nobody likes speed limits but if we make it fun drivers will look forward to do not exceed it. HOW?

We can see radars on the street to show us our speed.But mostly there is nothing more.
If we do a speed competition drivers will have a fun.
Speed radar will measure your actual speed and compare speeds of cars before you.
CAr which will drive as close as possible to speed limit will be placed better that others. But if you overcome speed limit you will be disqualified.

Example:
Imagine actual speed limit is 35km/h

Cars before you were driving :
1, 32,5km/h
2, 31,4km/h

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.
