Hand Wash Through Distorted Mirror

2021-12-15 18:29 - 0 Comments

I chose the problem that some people don't wash their hands after using the toilet. It's unnecessary to say, that this is unhealthy, distgusting and can cause many diseases. So I asked myself "Can we get more people to wash their hands by making it fun to do?!" I tried this by installing a motion detector inside the washbasin which recognizes the movements of your hands and sends the information to the camera of the distorting mirror. So your movements were realised in severel distortions, which you can see in the mirror.

Thermochromic Hand Dryer

2021-11-30 16:48 - 0 Comments

The thermo chromic hand dryer is a simple and fun way to indirectly increase participation in hand washing via adding an element of fun at the secondary stage – hand drying. Adding thermochromic paint to the metal parts, most notably the directional nozzle, will induce a visible and spectacular colour change as hot air comes into contact with the metal upon a user activating the hand dryer. The engaging effect is similar to that produced by thermocolour t-shirts and thermochromic mugs.

A story a day keeps the dentist away!

2021-12-15 21:41 - 0 Comments

Teeth washing is not fun, especially for children!
How to help them to transform that 3 minutes, twice a day, in a good time?
The idea is that a “Dental Care Association” promotes this interactive game: children listen to a story while brushing their teeth and than solve some mysteries on the initiative's website. They follow the adventure every day with a different episode.
The solution proposed is good for health, fun for children and helpful for parents!

Musical Hand Wash

2021-12-16 15:43 - 0 Comments

Kids don't always wash their hands properly. A Musical Hand Wash featuring music, animal images and fun instructions is a great way to teach and to remind kids how to wash their hands properly. A musical welcome mat would start the step-by-step instructions for washing hands. A sink with an elephant for the faucet would be enticing and water would be released when a sensor detects hands under the trunk. Another sensor on the soap dispenser beside the sink would detect when soap has been released and music would play for 20 seconds.

Conscious Shower

2021-12-15 22:03 - 0 Comments

The “Conscious Shower” is an alternative to reduce the amount of water spent in the shower in a fun way. To do that, a water meter has to be installed in the shower. It’s necessary to set up an amount of water enough for a shower (eg. 40 liters). So it will be possible to check in a screen how much water is being spent during the shower.

Pedrestian Bridge Arcade

Pedestrian Bridges are there to help us cross the road in a safe way, but most people ignore them. By making a little change we can make more people use them, reducing accidents in that way and also the people doing so will get more exercise! Using a modification of an arcade game will change their behavior for the better.

Idea: Rewarding Speed Limit Signs - Submitted by Kevin Richardson (USA).

Can we get more people to obey the speed limit by making it fun to do? The idea here is capture on camera the people who keep to the speed limit. They would have their photos taken and registration numbers recorded and entered into a lottery. Winners would recieve cash prizes and be notified by post. Better still, the winnig pot would come from the people who were caught speeding.

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.

Shopping List Bag

2021-12-16 09:00 - 0 Comments

The problem to be solved: people always getting new plastic bags, thus creating more waste.
The solution: The main reason why you have to get a bag at the store is because you didn’t think of bringing one before. If you write your shopping list on a bag (with a magna doodle’ish device), you’re more likely to take it with you when you go shopping.

All wheels turn. Save energy by creating a new form of hybrid that implements the concept of wind as a supplemental source of energy to make the vehicle run. Your hubcaps are the wind turbines, the propellers so to speak create the wind force needed and directed to narrow wind tubes that channel the wind generated by your moving tires to power your vehicle. Your reward is higher mileage for your gas usage.

Battery Recycling Jukebox

2021-12-16 15:26 - 0 Comments

Batteries disposed irresponsibly in municipal landfills or trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of toxic substances in the air and water. So, a battery waste prevention and recycling campaign is more than welcomed. And how can we stimulate people in joining and promoting these initiatives more but by making this entertaining, fun and engaging for them?

Eco-Fountain

2021-12-15 17:23 - 0 Comments

The problem: public water fountains are used less because many people buy bottled water under the impression that it is better, when in fact bottled water often comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is, bottled water has lower safety standards, is harmful to the environment, and costs up to 1,900 more per liter. What if drinking from water fountains was fun and educational?

ReZoo is a recycling machine/game for children that is designed to encourage recycling through fun. It is a three sided been, on each side accepting different recyclable item: bottles, paper and cans. Each side of the toy is a touch screen displaying animated animal character. In the idle state the animals are sad and bored, and when approached by a person they call for attention by making animal sounds. By inserting appropriate recyclable item, the animal will play with it a bit (juggle for example) and throw it into the recycling can on the screen.

Cig Dart Bins

2021-12-16 18:42 - 0 Comments

Cigarette Buds are common on the roads. They are seen everywhere, on the streets. I have noticed that after smoking, people generally throw cigarette buds. Sometimes they throw in the dust bin, sometimes on the side of the road or street. My idea is to transform the dustbin into a dart game. When the 'Cig Dart Bin' is designed in the shape of a dart game (as shown in the figure) it would go into the unconscious mind to aim and throw, just to check, how many points do one get. The cig buds hit the points board and fall in the bin below. (Doesn't matter from where
