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.

Plant-a-Poo

2009-12-15 22:24 - 0 Comments

People not picking up their dog poo is a major problem around the world. Cities and towns would be much cleaner if they did, and citizens would be happier. Few solutions have had much of an impact, but maybe that’s because this problem hasn’t been approached in a fun way! What if the dog bags provided in parks and public places came with a flower seed. Dog walkers can then plant these corn starch bio-degradable bags in a public garden, turning each pile of poo into a flower! Here’s a way to put a positive spin on a dirty subject, one that both the dog walker and the public can enjoy!

Road Roller Iron

2009-12-15 20:25 - 0 Comments

Ironing clothes can be a boring task and getting the creases removed from your clothes perfectly is next to impossible. Now all you need to do is place your shirt on a customized iron board with sensors. You need to define the task. What is to be ironed? Shirt, trouser etc. The board defines your play area with lights depending on your selection. Creases are highlighted. Place the mini road roller iron on the shirt, sit back and let the fun begin. With a remote control you need to guide the road roller around the highlighted creases. If you move out of your play area, you lose points.

Madame La RE:lotine

A guillotine, if one designed to crush rather than cut. The weight of the crusher will need to be pretty significant, so the motive force to elevate it is a geared ratchet (cool sound) powered by pedaling a bicycle. One at the drop point, a can (or collection) is placed underneath to be flattened. Once so squished, a trapdoor can be activated to drop them into the receptacle below.

Learn with comics!

2009-12-16 18:59 - 0 Comments

I remember myself strugling to learn things that I found terribly uninteresting at the time. 15 years later and the same thing happens to the new students. I have a solution for this. Just transform the chapter of your book into a comic right after the lecture! If the teacher is good in drawing can he/she draws the comic on the whiteboard! The students will be delighted to learn history or any other subject that way, is there any greater plot than real history? They can add colours in special events or make a whole book of comics! Anything is possible when you have fun!
