Doggy Doo Smell-Off!

2009-12-15 15:18 - 0 Comments

Disposing of dog poo is an issue that needs to be addressed is our cities and parks. It is not a pleasant activity, so dog owners need some fun encouragement for them to pick up their dog's poo. We have designed a dog poo bin that offers fun encouragement for adults and children alike. With its flashing LED display and sounds, owners are encouraged to place dog poo in the bin using the bags provided. Upon disposal, a hydrogen sulfide detector analyses the smell of the dog's droppings and gives it a fun smelly score, rating it against all the dogs in the park!

Right now it's pretty safe to say that there are only two ways to tell if your break light on your car is out. Either the police or a friend is driving behind you lets you know. So how do we solve this problem? What's the solution? Why not take bumper stickers and actually make them serve a purpose. Lets make looking out for others fun. Lets give a friendly honk if you see someone's break light is out. Submitted by Nick Schmidt.

Fun Automatic Doors

2009-12-16 13:36 - 0 Comments

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. Submitted by Alejandro Valladares.

This is an interesting fun way to make people get interested about the subject of the course. The teacher devide the classroom into groups-teams that after the lecture will compete each other with the help of a computer (would be like the Photoplay machines). If the group paid attention to the lecture they will be able to answer all the questions of the machine and get the prize which will be not to get examined the next day in that subject!

Soap Machine

The problem is that sometime people go to the restroom and they donot wash their hand with soap. The solution is to make the soap machines fun. My soap machine have four buttons, you have to figure out which one is the one that gives you liquid soap. Every time you click in one of the four buttons and it doesnt give you the soap it will take out bubbles and make the sound bip and said it is wrong. If you click in the correct one it will give you the liquid soap and advice that why it is important to use soap and it will make more bubbles.

Stop-Show: The Stop Sign Light Show

2009-11-30 16:57 - 0 Comments

Too many of us don't come to a complete stop at stop-signed intersections. You do it. I do it. But what if there was some visual feedback to encourage people to come to a complete stop? I propose 'Stop-Show', a system which used electronics to detect a full stop and then rewards the driver with a fun light show on the stop sign. The 'light show' would serve two key purposes... (1) Indicating / confirming that a full stop has been achieved, and (2) providing the driver with a little bit of entertainment, encouraging them to be a little more consistent with their safe-driving practices.

Vending machines are popular in many countries around the world, but most of them sell soda and junk food. Besides being unhealthy, the bottles, cups and cans take time and money to recycle. Let’s encourage people to start reducing disposables at the source. How about a vending machine that sells healthy drinks to those who bring their own reusable bottles or mugs? The vending machine also sells reusable bottles or mugs to those who do not happen to have one with them. Whenever a customer places a bottle or mug on the dispenser, the machine will sense it and say “thank you! You are awesome!

Recycling Zoo

Recycling is very important. However making recycling actions is still not the nr. 1. trend in my country. Maybe we could promote recycling if we could make it more fun: through Recycling Zoo (RZ) for example. In Budapest we handle five types of garbage, so at the moment there are five resident of RZ. Each animal has an individual solution to absorb garbage.

We can increase fun factor by"
1. Transform wooden animal plates into monkey bars (e.g. elephant’s fangs or turtle heads are perfect steps)

Idea: Hopscotch Lotto. Why not design a special interactive Hopscotch that would encourage adults to exercise and sometimes to win prizes? For example, players would hop from one square to another (similar to numeric keypad principle) in order to create a winning sequence of digits. Here’s how it would work: let’s say the secret winning number consists of 16 digits, i.e. 4698001738372349. That means that each player should make 16 random jumps and if the sequence of numbers matches the winning number 4698001738372349, the player gets a reward. Locations: shopping malls, playgrounds, etc.

Little boys need some fun. Especially when they go number one. A target for aiming the stream will keep the floor just a bit more clean. I suggest even upping the ante, and have sensors in the target where the longer they can "Keep their aim" the more points they get... Points that can get them some sort of reward.

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.

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.

A long tube built into a slider leading from a side easy insertion level to a point just over cone leading to the base centre. At top in interior is a mangle crusher feeding into and old paper shredder. You 'load' PEP bottles into the tube. You then slide it upright (using screwed in 330ml bottle handles) to drop into the cone. This action activates the blade, only once the tube is well out of reach. The shredder drops the shards into a cone-shaped pile.

The Cheering Food Collector

2009-12-15 20:47 - 0 Comments

In these times of unprecedented economic crisis that affects the entire world some of our fellow people have become even poorer than before and have problems in covering their food needs. A ‘cheering food collector’ placed after the cashiers in grocery and market stores will induce people to contribute an item of their groceries and will make it fun to do so. Helping people in need of course comes from an intrinsic urge. But we can still make helping more accessible and provide fun incentives to make even more people reveal their compassionate side.

The object of the game is to use the lever on the back of a player's hippo trash to consume as many of the cans on the playing field as possible. You have to insert cans to play the game. Play ends when all of the cans have been "eaten" by the hippos trash. The player whose hippo has "eaten" the most cans wins. Submitted by Lary Alaouchiche.

How do you get people to wait at a red signal light? Waiting at a signal light is boring. But it's so easy to make it fun!
Just let people communicate at red signal lights via a "signal light phone". The phones are connected with other signal light phones in different cities. So people who never met before can have a conversation while waiting for the light to change.
