The TV screen will show short clips as long as there is red light.
Clips like funny stuff from youtube, parts from favorite tv shows etc.
That way people will enjoy standing in the red light rather then being bored and pissed at it (thus, walking while it's on).

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.
People don’t get enough exercise and people need energy so if you have lots of bicycles, a ferris wheel, cords, control booth, a energy storage and a lot of people/passersby you could make a ferris wheel that’s powered by bikes and than all of the the extra energy goes to a storage and then when the storage is filled (or mostly filled) a car comes and transports it to someplace that needs it!

The idea is to force people to cross the street during the green light. We want to transform this place ( all these white rectangles ) into a big dancefloor, where peope create light by walking on these white rectangles. More people is waiting for the green light, more fun will be the cross with more light working. Consequently, people interact to each other during the waiting, and the interact during the cross by having fun on the "dancefloor"

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.
