Chews for Tommorow

2021-12-15 14:32 - 0 Comments

Can we get people to stop littering their gum in cities by giving them a fun alternative? We propose installing a large color by numbers canvas on a city wall for people to dispose of their multicolored gum. It would give people a fun and constructive way to make their own mark in being a part of cleaning up our habitat. We aren’t trying to convince you that cleaning our sidewalks alone will save the earth, but we are saying that it can be a catalyst, and most important of all, fun!

Play GETH2O to Spread Peace

2021-12-16 09:47 - 0 Comments

GETH2O is a strategic board game that aims to develop a culture of peace amongst young people. It will be used in youth groups and community centres in order to reach a large audience across Kenya (50 million people). The central theme of the board game is the chronic water shortages in the slums of Nairobi. So doing the game encapsulates both the larger issues and the daily obstacles in the lives of our target group, the young people. Larger issues such as corruption, leadership and human rights, daily obstacles such as peer pressure, crime and water shortages.

Litter Games

2021-12-16 11:43 - 0 Comments

Our idea is a fun positive way to tackle the major littering problems in any populated area or city. The idea is to encourage people to throw their rubbish in the public bins already provided, with a few adjustments of course! By placing nets, goals or target boards onto bins in specific problem areas or high risk litter zones e.g. In and around Sports stadiums, music festivals and other major outdoor events, we could tackle the problem directly and have fun doing so!

A more fun way to recycle your newspaper!

Many people around the world appreciate to read free newspapers when they travel with the subway. The problem is that too many people don’t recycle their newspaper when they’ve read it. This is damaging the environment and costs lots of money to clean – Money that raises ticket prices.
Can we get people to change their behaviour by making it more fun to recycle their newspapers?

Crosswalk in memory of the King

2021-12-15 23:38 - 0 Comments

Crosswalks are everywhere where we need them, but paradoxically people prefer to cross the street on other places, even when the crosswalk is only few meters away. This causes accidents.

In the videoclip from Michael Jacksons „Billie Jean“, he walks on a path and everything he touches lights up. I always found that fascinating, specially the lights on the floor.

The Recycling Crusher

Recycling is important, but imagine if we could actually see what happened to the cans and bottles after they're put into the machine. Today we hear some crushing sounds, but we miss out on the visual pleasure. Solution: The Recycling Crusher - the transparent recycling machine. Put your bottle in it and let it fascinate you with its effective flattening mechanisms.

Urban Bird Feeder

2021-12-16 10:48 - 0 Comments

n today's most cities, some bird types are part of that city life. We see them around everyday and mostly ignore them. Especially, in the crowded city centers these half crazy/half brave birds throw themselves under the feet of people in sake of finding something to feed themselves. In winter season, the life gets harder for the birds that are not immigrating. Lack of food and water, they keep dying around the city in harsh weather conditions.

Remote Control Pooper Scooper

This happens to many people day in day out. You take the dog for a quick walk, and then the inevitable happens. The dog needs a poo. You have to bend down near all the smells, and pick it up with a glove etc. But knowone wants to touch it, its revolting and there is easier ways. I have come up with an idea that allows you to NOT bend down near the smells to pick it up. It also allows you to NOT to physically touch it. But what it does allow you to do is have FUN, yes thats right, have FUN.

Windcar

2021-12-16 08:51 - 0 Comments

It's simple, you add a windmill to the top of the car. Which is connected to the motor and to the battery. All you have to do is is start up the car like normal with fuel, then once you get going, the windmill spins and provides energy for the motor. The battery of the car can charge up and last the car for 10-20 minutes without the windmill spinning, so you can keep power at stoplights etc. The windmill car isn't about not using fuel for cars. It's about using less fuel (only for start-up and back-up energy).

Fun Fish - Water Conservation

2021-12-15 19:57 - 0 Comments

Water conservation is tricky. Signs and shocking statistics seem to do little to change behavior. Enter FUN. Imagine a virtual fish tank behind the water faucet. The water level is connected to how much water is being used. If you leave the water running while brushing your teeth or lathering your hands, the water level lowers. You need to be smart about how much water you use so you leave water for the fish to live. The water slowly refills as the faucet is off.

Wii like batteries

2021-12-15 15:27 - 0 Comments

Currently mobile electronics (like the wii remote) runs on batteries which are either used once and thrown out or they are rechargeable and create carbon emissions with each charge. On the other hand, humans are becoming lazier than ever before. By having a kinetically charged battery, it would never have to be thrown out, would never have to use carbon emitting electricity and would cause the human user of the wii to perform a decent level of exercise. The batteries would have the same dimensions as current AA batteries and would fit seamlessly into the Wiimote.

This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

A container/ashtray for out-side use. How to use: spinning the ashtray generates energi which drives a cylinder with cartoon characters in different sizes on. The spinning makes the illusion of dancing, a simple filmteknik. Because smoking isn´t allowed indoors, the smokers makes the city streets looks like ashtrays, which becomes a anviromentproblem as well as an estetic pollution of the public room.

This is an idea for sinks that will sense the movement of a person washing there hands which will then affect the music playing in the restroom. Examples could include beat mods, scratching, loop play, pitch change, tempo control, etc (cross your eyes to match the pictures of the sink and view in 3d). Submitted by Matt Vaughan.

Moving is fun!

2021-12-16 17:45 - 0 Comments

Moving because it's fun, not because you have to. The idea is to make billboards and posters in the city or at the office with an activity on there. Moving is fun! are tasks/activitites you can preform during your daily routine. While outside or at work. The tasks are very simple and don't cost you a lot of extra time. You don't need extra material, just use the surroundings of the city or the office. For example: when you walk in the city walk only on the white stripes of a zebracrossing.
