Diet elevator

Diet elevator

I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.

Peacocks for Posture

2009-12-15 17:33 - 0 Comments

"Sit up straight!" Everybody knows those nagging words, and how annoying it can be to be constantly reminded about your posture. But good posture is important for presenting a positive outward appearance and for strengthening back muscles towards better health. So how can we make sitting up straight more FUN? With our Peacocks for Posture proposal, sensors are embedded in the back of a chair to detect the sitter's posture. Peacock feathers are mounted to a motorized system on the back of the chair. If the sitter is slouching, the peacock feathers remain folded up.

After every shopping tour, you get a bunch of small coins. The basic idea is to mount a big magnet on a street light or a building, which collects the magnetic 1,2 and 5-cent coins. Once a week the collected money will be removed and donated to a social institution or homeless people. Possible variations of the idea are: - a pair of balanced magnets; every week a new question will be shown where people can vote for one option - a machine that starts a special event once a certain amount of money (=weight) pulls on the magnet.

Earth Vote For Everyone

2009-12-16 10:46 - 0 Comments

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!

Funtastic Toilet Time

2009-12-07 15:51 - 0 Comments

Public washrooms are not generally places known for being pleasant or hygienic. Part of the problem is people neglecting to flush the toilet after they have finished their business. This device will encourage toilet flushing with prompts and a prize (of the non-tangible variety). When a person enters the stall, a screen above the toilet will pose a question. These can range from riddles to true or false questions. The answer to the question will only appear once the toilet has been flushed (triggered by a cord, attached to the device).

Planet Earth Climbing Wall

Lots of parents start involving their children, from an early stage, in different sport activities such as swimming, trekking, climbing. And we all know, in climbing, kids have a special wall arranged for them, with different accessories and helpful supports.

What if, instead of the wall we use a large replica of Planet Earth?
- the mountains chains and volcanoes would come out in relief
- the climbing supports would be fixed in the same places where the mountain peeks are situated on the map

Donation Puzzle

Simple idea: you get a coin or a bunch of them, insert into the machine that will give you a puzzle piece. On the side it will have a board to complete the puzzle. Just find the one's missing and that's it. The more you donate, the more you'll play. Submitted by Raphael Santos.

Well how about, instead of contributing to Global Warming, how about you get creative and select one of several designs in which your Old Credit/Debit Card gets remade into something special and useful for you!

As you see on the third and fourth images, your Old Credit/Debit Card will be moulded, cut and remade into a design of your choice!

You could even submit a design which you would like your Old Credit/Debit Card to be moulded into!

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!!

Archie's Magic RE:ounderbutt Augur's Well

2009-12-03 12:14 - 0 Comments

Essentially a kids’ playground roundabout, with a large Archimedes screw within. A mixture of a mincer and the idea behind the African water pump concept. Using the energy of turning the roundabout (geared down if necessary) the lightweight, highly compressible materials are packed ever more tightly. Possible enhancements could include a facility to extract the end result in bales, thus enabling a never-ending constant feed process.

I Transformed an existing climbing frame web into a big Nomad Tent.
Seventeen Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi youngsters stopped playing football and came to sit in it.
People brought candles and some beer. We had nice chats about the problems in their neighbourhood. At midnight they helped me taking it down.

This way i want to reach a spontaneous moment!

Reactions:
- 'My dad has a restaurant, i'll get you a pizza!'
- Boy on phone: 'Come over here, relaxed sitting in a tent!'
- 'When are you coming again?'

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.

Calories to Watts

2009-12-15 17:08 - 0 Comments

The people exercise to burn calories and become more fit. Various exercise machines are used, such as bikes and elliptical equipment. Weights, wheels, springs, magnets etc. are used to create resistance. Burning calories is not always fun and it is energy wasted in vain. However, if we use electrical generator to create the resistance in the exercise equipment, than our exercise can be used to produce electrical energy. Imagine a gym full of rotational and elliptical equipment and the electricity that can be produced when the gym is full.

Your kid got tired of that old toy and keep asking you to buy something different. To encourage them to exchange the old for a different one, just take them to the Magic BoXchange and they will learn that an old thing can be recycled. All they have to do is to insert the old toy inside the box, wait a little bit, and surprise: a different toy will show up on the other side of the machine. You can choose between boys and girls toys', and if they are not satisfied they can keep on exchanging it. Submitted by Silvia Noronha.

An interesting bike concept that offers a great doze of exercise as well as a funny experience through which you can measure your energetic potential.

The concept is simple: the electricity produced while pedaling is collected and can feed up various electric devices. The scientific application has been around for quite a while now but how many times was it transposed into an application that would also generate fun?
