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.

Raffle Chairs

At work we have had a huge problem with recycling cans. The tech department consumed so much Mountain Dew that we didn't have time to recycle them all. A lot of them were thrown away. The solution: I built office chairs made from car seats, as comfy as can be. People could hand their cans to me for recycling and got a raffle ticket for every 10 cans, with a chance to win a chair. The results were amazing. I've had 42 people participate and one person even brought in 800 cans. A huge difference made possible through a little fun.

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?'

Batterize

2009-12-16 16:11 - 0 Comments

This is a fun way to encourage people to recycle their batteries rather than throw them in the garbage. It is a pinball machine called BATTERIZE. Instead of using money and a pinball you put a used battery into BATTERIZE and play the game with the battery. You gain points by hitting targets that are photographs of electronics which use batteries. The goal is to fully charge your 'game' battery...and you have a helping and encouraging hand from the narrator who tells you what's going on. The end result? It's a fun way to collect used batteries and dispose of them correctly.

There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.

There's not a lot of incentives to recycle aluminum cans; the bins can be hard to find, they're often confused with trash bins, and the experience of tossing a can rarely makes a person smile. But, things CAN be different! Introducing... Clink-O-- a board and peg game that encourages players to drop their crushed cans into a grid of pegs and test their skill (or luck?) at scoring points in the slots below. Cans are collected beneath the game board and recycled for future use.

In public places or company buildings the toilet brush to clean the lavatory pan is a rarely used device. Of course it is! Because it is everything else but fun to use the tb. My idea is to make it more fun to use the brush by making it respond to use.
The physical feedback of the brush should produce positive emotions and be
fun to a certain extent. So I decided to make the brush purr like a cat when used. A purring brush is unexpected
and quite funny on one hand, on the other hand cat purring is a charming and lovely

Problem tackled : reduce the number of single-use bags that are distributed or sold in supermarkets.
Solution:grant the right to people bringing along reusable bags to choose the music played in the supermarket. People are given tags (like barcodes) to stick on their bags. When entering the supermarket, they scan the tag and choose a song to play in the supermarket.
