Social Pedometer

2009-12-16 20:05 - 0 Comments

By using competition and social networking, we can make walking places more fun, encouraging fitness and a reduced reliance on cars for short trips. This is a pedometer (step-counter) that can be either an application for a smart phone or a separate USB device. It counts your steps through the day, then uploads them automatically to a website that tracks everyone's steps. On the website, you can compete against others, as well as create groups to compete against each other groups, so your office or school could have competitions within itself and with other schools and organizations.

Canabaplastic Crusher

Fun way of crushing cans or plastic containers while exercising those biceps and triceps. You can do it solo or with a friend. Just insert the materials into the box, close the lid, turn the handles and watch them get crushed through the transparent Plexiglas. Once the materials have been fully crushed to your content, just release the latch for them to be dumped in the recycling bin. Can also be re-configured to use your legs for those cycling enthusiasts.

Hubert the Gumball Dog

2009-12-15 16:43 - 0 Comments

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.

The concept for our project is simple, we want to make washing your hands fun by making it useful as well. Since its invention in 1946, the Magic Eight Ball has become a common household item which has helped thousands of different people make decisions about innumerable subjects, and which has held the fate of many events, some of which we dare not speculate. Ah, to be indecisive, and have a magic device to give you the answers to your questions.

The Hope Rewards

The idea is to teach compassion in a fun and interactive way. This is a video game that has three choices of play: (1)Three ethics questions, (2) Choosing the ending of a video scenario or (3) Viewer watches a short video depicting life as the member of a selected group (Autism, other disability, homeless, other culture). Machine would be banked with MANY scenarios and information – as so not to become predictable. Original purpose: autism awareness, but can be used for various other reasons.

Chore Clock

Chore Clock

2009-11-20 13:27 - 0 Comments

My idea is a chore clock. Basically all it is is a digital stop watch, like those used in the Olympic Games for track events, hanging in the kitchen over the sink or the dishwasher, or in the washroom hanging over the washer and dryer. On the stop watch it has a record time and the name of whom the record belongs to. This will make doing chores competitive and fun and gives the record holder bragging rights in the house, and hopefully keep kids active and burning calories while pitching in around the house.

Let ecological / fair trade marked goods etc in food stores be collected from the shelves / lowered from the ceiling to spark interest with sounds or labyrinth. That way we can make shopping for these environmentally friendly goods more fun!

Feed Phil

Meet Phil.
Phil needs to be fed, and chewing gum is his favourite food. It’s your job to feed him.
The gum (and other small trash items) go into Phil's head.
After 20 pieces of trash have passed the motion sensor, Phil's begins his performance:
he chews, he laughs, he thanks you for your gum, and he generally just has a joyous time thanks to your trash-feeding efforts.

Colourful meal

2009-12-16 19:30 - 0 Comments

Kids are eating less vegetables and more meat and fast food products. These refined foods are bad both for the organism and because of the intensive resources they require. This behavior should be changed towards eating more fruits, vegetables and less refined products, from a young age.

This is way kind should be motivated to eat vegetables. The idea is to let the kid choose what to eat and then give him/her pencils, in each of the colors of the chosen foods, and a contour figure to color. Varied food intake, more colors for drawing!

Road Roller Iron

2009-12-15 20:25 - 0 Comments

Ironing clothes can be a boring task and getting the creases removed from your clothes perfectly is next to impossible. Now all you need to do is place your shirt on a customized iron board with sensors. You need to define the task. What is to be ironed? Shirt, trouser etc. The board defines your play area with lights depending on your selection. Creases are highlighted. Place the mini road roller iron on the shirt, sit back and let the fun begin. With a remote control you need to guide the road roller around the highlighted creases. If you move out of your play area, you lose points.

Funny Dog Poo Eater

2009-11-19 10:57 - 0 Comments

The Friendly Dog Poo Recycle bin has a funny and friendly design, almost as in the picture attached. Speakers will be installed, connected to a sensor. Every time it detects movement near it, it will play different messages, like "I eat dog poo!", "I am hungry, please feed me!'. Another sensor will be installed in the tray, detecting when a person will throw something in it - then it will play messages like "Thank you so much!", "Mmmm, Yummy!" , "You just made my day better!", and it will automatically give a bone biscuit for the dog. It will also be equipped with free bags.

We don't conceive a transportation system as embodying neutral values, but recognize it as a social construction that creates a certain type of power structure. Metro system hides people's characters, hence a cheerless atmosphere is created. How does this value constitutes norms and results how people behave and use the urban space?

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 Adam Ben Ezra 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.

Noisy poop scoop

2009-12-16 17:41 - 0 Comments

Dog poop scooping is no fun! But it is less fun to live in a city full of poop…

How could poop scooping be less annoying?

A scooper that makes funny noises can become a new way to play with your dog. This scooper has a mechanism that creates funny noises when collecting poop. You can choose between different sounds (cat noise, toy squiz, barking…). You could enjoy your dog’s reaction to the noises and interact with other people that use different noises too.

Simple and fun, not only for people but for dogs too!

Counter tap

To conscience is the most effective way to changing every day customs. Small and repetitive gestures of daily life are the ones that have more impact. So the key is to reeducate habits and change people´s behaviours.
The idea is to put a counter or scorer on the tap water , basin and shower, sink.. to show you the amount of water you use and if it possible to use less obtainig the same result. To put a comparative of the litres you have used with a shocking data of what could have been done with the wasted water.

I am submitting additional information to further describe a concept I submitted in October. This concept involves a container to receive newspapers, magazines and other paper for recycling. The container would have a large opening to put the paper in and include a camera above the opening to take the persons picture showing them on a screen below with the headlines reading:
