Recycle Booth

2009-11-17 12:31 - 0 Comments

Recycle Booth is a fun way to encourage people to recycle any sort of material. When you place the material (e.g. sheet of unwanted paper) into the corresponding compartment, the machine will be triggered. From then on, you follow the on screen instructions which will guide you through how to use the booth (which will act like a photo/sticker booth) to take a photo and after taking the photo, you can decorate it with the interactive pen attached to the machine and leave an on-screen message, e.g. "I recycled" or your name.

Every time you reuse this bottle (each time it is filled up again) a dimention of the art changes and the image gets more complex. The first time you use the bottle, a square appears, second time is 2 squares, each acting as individual pixles. It becomes less abstract each time it is used. This will encourage people to keep the same bottle for years just to see the imege change and grow into a piece of art. Reduce, reuse. Submitted by Jenna Meath.

The Talking Drinking Fountain

2009-12-15 18:29 - 0 Comments

The proposal is to do water attractive, and do people drink more water as usual, making it talk to them. When someone approach, the Drinking Fountain start to say, with a smooth voice, “Drink me Please...”
When pressed the green button, it starts to do noise of someone drinking water, very loud. In other time, it starts to do the sound of water drops, in other tickle laughter, or a nice and relax music, or open faucet very lound, to call attention.
When finish, the Drinking Fountain say "Ahhhhh... delicious water!!" and thanks to people who drink his water.

Detect Dirty Hands

2009-12-16 09:51 - 0 Comments

How can we make people wash their hands after using public toilets? A new doorknob could be the solution for this problem: After using the toilet, you have to touch the doorknob in order to unlock and open the door. So a doorknob with a stamp on its backside could put some colour or a funny message on your hand. The ink can easily be washed off with some water and soap - but of course, it will remain for a while if you do not wash your hands. So everybody can see that your hands are still dirty.

Change the lights

A fun game to play at the traffic lights. You have to get to 20 points by pushing the right buttons in the right order. You can play against the clock or versus an opponent on the other side of the street. When you get enough points to win, the lights change to green so you can cross.
