The Cullet Gullet Mill

A pyramid with 3 segments n line (or more if other glass colours are required to be separated) for clear, brown, green. Above these is a series of tubes, rotating about a centre axle, spaced at equal intervals. These are ‘loaded’ at the bottom arc, and then rotated to fire in the hole position at the top by a ship’s wheel. You 'load' glass into the tube. The wheel is then used to rotate it upright to the highest position over a protected hole in the container below.

Study Games

Many young adults spend a lot of their time playing video games. What if you could actually learna by achieving objectives in games? Instead of only earning points you could also grow in knowledge. The video game industry in general should focus on games being more of a learning platform than a solely entertainment platform. The software should be developed by the gaming console companies and should be entirely open-source, in terms of content that could be incorporated into the games.

Wash Hands with Soap Game

2009-12-15 15:57 - 0 Comments

Objective: To get more people to use soap when washing their hands after using the restroom.
A recent article in USA Today reported that when people wash their hands after using the restroom, only 33% use soap and only 16% adequately wash. The average hand-washing time was a pathetic 11 seconds.
So we need a fun way to motivate people to wash their hands adequately using soap.

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!

Swing Light

2009-12-16 13:54 - 0 Comments

"Save power, don't forget to turn off the light," we are told. And yet, often we do forget - for it's so easy to turn the light on, sometimes we don't even remember doing it. What if turning on the light required us to work a bit harder? And what if it was fun? The swing light exaggerates the familiar rope-switch light to emphasize the action of what we are doing when we turn on light, channeling electricity from far-off power sources. The stronger the pull, the brighter the light, the longer the pull, the longer the light stays on.

My fun theory problem is that many people don’t like to plant trees in their back yard. Trees help us purify the air. People that have kids planting a tree can help theme have fun by building a simple tree house.

What’s the need?
Connecting with nature as a Living and not only an existing being.
This ideas will help educate and create a connect between us humans and Mother Nature through trees. Deforestation is on the rise in many countries. Nations are working hard to cut down pollution and stop global warming. This simple gesture is one step in building a relationship between an individual and our planet. Going one step ahead and asking the common man to help plant a little sapling.

Concept for Fun theory

Boxing Lighting

2009-12-16 18:04 - 0 Comments

My idea is to produce street lights powered by dynamo. This stand-alone lighting would basically run itself and also not use any electrical wiring, so that the lights can be placed virtually anywhere. Cities, villages, islands, everywhere. Both government and private persons (as an extra to the city treasury, the government might account for the production and sales) could put up streetlights of this variety. If the LED is used for lighting are also sufficient these lights an entire lifetime.

Enjoy My View

2009-12-16 19:45 - 0 Comments

A periscope is attached to a bus stop. It aims to entertain and reduce the stress of commuters, avoiding the wait/walk dilemma. It transforms the bus stop into a playground by providing a fun diversion while waiting for the bus. The commuters can not only see if the bus is coming but by using the periscope handler, they can explore other views of the city. At the same time it works as a critical object: by being present, it also aims to initiate a conversation about the problem and the lack of the real-time information system in NYC bus stops.

Jumping Zebra

In this project two Daily urban experiences are joined together in this case a pedestrian and a car driver, drivers waiting on a red light and the monotonous crossing for the zebra from part of the pedestrians, are clearly two situations that we all have experienced. For this reason we have decided to develop a dynamic in which the driver entertains himself during the red light while the pedestrians enjoy and respect the pedestrian crossing zone.

Take all this MUST BE TRASH & throw it in THEtrashmagMIXER@HOMEbag.com which pulps whatever you incorporate & combines it with some glue, or tree (pine-needles) sap, or we could even add our own special ingredient (TBA) for a small free. In minutes, out comes multi-colored-sheets of paper. 'Sow' now, you & the rest of the kids can planet, SELL it, share'em, BUY'em &/or give away your HOME MADE bags.

I'm waiting in line and getting bored with nothing to do and I don't dare to small talk to the people around me. The line is very long at the postoffice/ bank/ waitingroom/ hospital/ busstop ... and the clock is ticking very slowly. Waiting on my turn seems to take forever.

I - and all the people around me - like to take pictures with their cellphones on holidays, special occasions or just for no special reason. We can upload these to a local network connected to a video-projector that is showing the pictures very big on the wall.

People don't pay for parking tickets in most of cases, at least here in Romania... To resolve this problem, I have thought, to make parking ticket machines interactive. Like You can see on my sketch, on the top of the parking ticket machine is a photo camera, which is in permanent contact with a face warp software. The camera takes the shout, the software makes hes job, so, on the parking ticket everybody can see a cartoon about himself. I think, much more people would pay for parking in this way.

How many times have we walked past a ton of trash sitting just feet from the nearest trash can? How hard would it have been to "pitch in"? Sadly, pitching in seems a chore. And yet, simply crumpling up a piece of paper seems to convert us: suddenly we're the Shaq Attack, and making baskets is our thing. This little psychological quirk is so strangely affecting that people around their world populate their iPhones with a virtual version of trashketball! With the trashketball can, we can turn a real life task into a really fun sport.

Traffic tetris

2009-12-15 20:38 - 0 Comments

There are motorists who try to be in the fast lane in spite of knowing that they would need to change lanes in a short distance

1) The stretch just before a junction is treated as a point for motorist to correct their lanes. This leads to confusion, traffic jams and accidents.

2) If which car is headed in what direction is known in advance then it would be easier to control traffic

3) Traffic Tetris makes this possible in a fun way.

To participate, every motorist needs to define his destination and the route he’d take. Vehicles heading in the same direction are given one color.
