Dog's feces in the streets stink. Literally. And still, some dog owners don't throw at the trash can. So, let's give them a reason to do it. Let's show them that it could be useful if put at the right place.
The Garden's hit is where they'll see what some poo can do. Throwing it at the specified place activates a mechanism that releases a plastic rose everytime something hits the engines under the garden. Then, a flower "grows". There are 50 of them, that go down again after some minuts. This way everybody can enjoy making a plant growing. Just have to make the poo hit the garden.
Many of us throws in the trash or in public places the free daily newspapers. We can change this with a funny recycling attitude. With Newspaper Style you are not just rewarded with a good conscience, you also can express your opinions of the news with a big smile. Submitted by Sandra Reyes.
There are thousands of residents in New York City who have dogs for pets. People carry plastic bags to pick up after their dogs but there is no clean up for urine. Urine is very acidic, and destroys concrete sidewalks, plants and trees. Acid from urine eats right through the bark of a tree, and cambial zone straight to the wood zone, which destroys the trees defense system. Urine also contains a lot of salt that deprives the plants of water and burns their roots.
Can you get humans to eat healthier food through fun?
It’s always more fun to open colorful packages with loud writing, cool logos and slogans. How can a piece of fruit in the super market ever compete with a candy bar? It can’t! SO….
Imagine lush and colorful shrink-wrappers over bananas, apples and mandarin oranges. Put them right next to the candies, which in the USA are typically in the checkout line to entice last minute impulse buys by children. Guilt and fun I believe will
People use their car horns for all sorts of messages: Celebrating after a sports match, telling a friend "I'm here" when sitting outside his house, saying "Thank you" to another driver who has let you drive first over a one-lane bridge or saying "Good bye" to family as they wave to you. Yet in every case, we use the same, purposefully-dissonant sound to express each message. This results in both noise pollution and ambiguity. I propose that we add a second horn to each new car and truck sold: A horn that is euphonious, not dissonant, one that plays a major third or major fifth.
The whole Idea of this Idea is;
Currently, don't you do what the second image shows?
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!
Eco-friendly Bags are available since long in the markets. However, the use of such bags has been quite low owing to the low emotional value of the bags. for this reason tote bag with guitar graphic has been designed. This serves the dual purpose- one that of use of eco-friendly bags and the other, that of the bag being popular amongst youth and fun to carry.

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.
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.
Our idea is a fun positive way to tackle the major littering problems in any populated area or city. The idea is to encourage people to throw their rubbish in the public bins already provided, with a few adjustments of course! By placing nets, goals or target boards onto bins in specific problem areas or high risk litter zones e.g. In and around Sports stadiums, music festivals and other major outdoor events, we could tackle the problem directly and have fun doing so!

How to make people dry their hands using the hand dryer instead of paper towels? When someone move his/her hands above the hand dryer it turns on and at the same time the kaleidoscope. The person will see the kaleidoscope moving only when the hand dryer is turned on. Different kaleidoscopes should be installed in different places thus people will be interested every time they need to dry their hands.

Many people prefers to get downtown by car and traffic raises the level of pollution.
How to convince people to park their car outside the urban belt and use the public transportation system to get downtown? And, focusing on the car park lot, is it possible to make the car parking more fun?
What about using cars instead pressing step sequencer buttons to create an high-scale step-sequencer with dynamic light and musical effects? This would bring drivers to say: "OK, there's a free lot there, let's park my car onto and see what happens."
Cigarettes stubs are often thrown away on the streets creating pollution, how can we make throwing them in a trashcan fun? We've thought about creating a bin with a built-in speed sensor: challenge your friends to the fastest cigarette stub throw!

Not many guys wash their hands coming out of a public washroom. I think if it was more fun than people would do it all the time and it would promote good hygiene. I think that the taps should play music while they are washing their hands and if the wash them for the correct amount of time (minimum of 15 to 20 seconds of lathering) then a prize drops out of a slot for them. This could be a mint or something like that. Just an idea.

Most of us struggle with stress. Stress sucks. We feel like it creeps up on us. But it’s hard to fix before it kicks in. We feel like we need to keep it to ourselves. But then we feel alone dealing with it. And all this stresses us out more. Understandably. What if “stress tools” were; positive ideally, humorous? Powerful part of a bigger movement? Present prompting our constant awareness and action? Private when we need and want to be discreet? Public when we need and want support? So like, what if a bracelet could help us learn to de-stress every moment?
It's always a great habit to have the seat belt on when driving a car, the thing is that, as a passenger, this habit does not exist as firmly as when driving. So, the question would be: can we get more people to use their seat belt by making it fun to do?. This idea is great either for kids, who are known for disliking seat belts, or for anyone that wants to have fun by being safe.

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.

This fun and self-efficient attachment to bathroom fixtures is interactive with flashing lights and cool sounds. It can adapt to faucets, hand dryers, and water-use efficient shower heads. Whenever someone puts his or her hands under the SaberSaver, the sounds and lights change depending on the orientation of their hands. This entertaining addition increases the appeal of water-use efficient shower heads, encourages hand washing, reducing the spread of diseases, and promotes using hand dryers instead of paper towels, reducing paper waste. SaberSaver encourages good habits by making them fun!
To encourage people to recycle, recycling machines need to serve more than their actual function. The Better day recycling machine rewards the user by telling him different kinds of information regarding the amount of recycling done. In Canada, you get back a deposit while returning empty bottles (plastic or glass). While having the cash back through a receipt, the Better day recycling machine speaks out a sentence and prints it out as the usual receipt gets out. From 1 to 5 bottles the user gets a message to brighten his day (You are a wonderful person).
