Imagine a car with a virtual racing simulation system built in it. Press a few buttons on the new simulation panel on the dashboard of your new VW, set up the track and opponents and opaque screens descend over the glass windows on which the simulation is projected or overlaid. With appropiate mechanisms under the seats the simulation will create even more realistic physical empact, transporting the driver into an adrenaline filled virtual world of speed and madness, preventing all the accidents and mayhem that the same would have caused in the real world. The new generation longs for speed.
The society needs to develop a habit of throwing away the trash and for that we must teach to the children the importance of throwing away the trash in the right place to have a better future. That's why the action of throwing trash must be something fun and think it's a game. The children will get excited with the idea of throwing the garbage and even they will be eager to reach the nearest boat to start having fun. The trash bottle will be a friendly character, cute, funny and will smile at the moment you put your garbage in order to teach the children to care for the environment.
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.
The use of dividers on the supermarket checkout transport belt is quite common. The dividers usually are put in a gully by the checkout person. the dividers usually are concentrated at the end side, where they are put in the gully, not at the beginning, where they are needed. By giving sounds to the sliding dividers people will be tempted to slide them to the other people at the beginning of the transport belt. Additionally there can be a speed meter to look at the speed of your slide. But this can become dangerous, so maybe a catching net at the end of the gully.
