Chewing Gum Machine

Munching chewing gums, can anything bring more fun?
Yes, giving it back! There are some bad news for all, who love to see, how shirty people try to get rid of wet, gray, slimy and old gums under their shoes. From now on there is no possibility to see somebody twiddle with the gummy stuff. Thanks to the chewing gum machine! With the aid of light effects, sounds and loud colors it causes quite a stir.
For everybody who wants to have fun by using garbage cans!

The Space Snack Rocket

2021-11-20 13:11 - 0 Comments

If we could get kids hooked on fruit and vegetables we would embed a healthy habit for life. My kids love ride-on toys. Every time we go to the supermarket I have to peel them off the ride-on tractor at the shopping mall, so what would happen if a ride-on toy dispensed fruit and veg? Imagine you are a kid again and you get to climb in a rocket that gives you a fun ride with lots of levers to pull and flashing lights and a song about going to the moon. A friendly alien then asks you which space snack you want.

We all like to compete, although we don’t always admit it. It’s just genetically coded. We want to compare our intelligence, success, force, skills. Why not using this in recycling?

As we walk down the streets, we walk straight, eyes forward only focusing on our destination. We wear headphones to isolate ourselves since we can't be bothered to spare a few moments to chat with each other. Can we use fun to pop these bubbles of isolation we have formed around ourselves? Yes, yes we can. Submitted by Justin Sy

Make Your Watermark

2021-11-17 13:09 - 0 Comments

Vending machines usually dispense sugary liquid that isn't good for anyone. But those colourful plastic bottles are so much more appealing than water. To change people's behaviour, how about making a vending machine that dispenses water in tetra paks. To make it fun, the vending machine will have an interactive graffiti screen where people can use colours and finger strokes to design one side of their water pak. There could also be pre-loaded designs to choose from--or you can freestyle. The result is a customized water "bottle".

BAD BEHAVIOR: Adults or children who leave their clothes lying around the floor or bathroom. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: Design and place a device on top of the clothes basket. This device will register clothing as it goes through the "hoop" similar to basketball. The more clothing that goes into the hoop the more points a family member receives. A biometric reader could be installed to recoginize the particular family member using the device and an electric eye could be used to score more points based on the distance of the shooter.

Problem: People don’t do exercise because they are too lazy or “too tired”. They also say their feet are tired and hurt.

Solution: If people complain they are too tired and use that as an excuse to not exercise, they will have no excuse because this shoe gives you a massage while you are walking, but it has a sensor that feels that you are actually walking, so that if you are not walking it won’t give you a massage.

Well, the problem of tha trash cans is sometimes they are "invisible"!
Making them "visible" can be the challenge to clean our parks or streets.. u know.
everytime crossing the line which is asking "any trash?" is like our mother asking everytime: did u clean your hands? and the design by itself is so easy to understand, so familiar to the generations..

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.

The Bicycle Bus

2021-11-24 12:21 - 0 Comments

People usually prefer to take the bus even for short distances even though one could easily walk instead. Therefor many people miss out on everyday exercise.

If you would create a bus that looks like every other bus but with peddles underneath every seat you would both get your everyday exercise and reduce the pollution of our environment.

What could make waiting for green light at a road crossing more fun? This simple fix will appeal to people´s love of having their photograph taken. If you cross by red light nothing will happen. But if you wait until the little green man turns up you'll have your photo taken as you cross - just like when riding a roller coaster! The snapshots will be displayed on a big screen on a nearby house side - for you to enjoy fifteen seconds of fame!

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.

Remember the little flipbooks you had when you were a kid? The kind you could flip through quickly and see a little movie, This might be the simplest way of animating a picture but a filmreel doesn't act all that different. Think of all the boring hours you have spent looking out of the window into nothingness while commuting on the Metro train or underground. Now, I am a big fan of grafitti and street art, but it doesn't really serve its purpose in 60 km/h when everything turns into a blur. What if we could use the speed of the train to emulate a lens travelling down a filmreel?

Reusable Coffee Mug Lottery

Statistics show that Americans alone devour over 400 million cups of coffee daily, going through 400 million paper cups in the process. Dumping, recycling or filling up landfills with these cups is a waste of time, energy and money. As a way to change people’s behavior and outlook on reusable mugs, institute a fun system where each reusable mug is assigned a coffee code, enabling them to win 1 of 10 daily prizes in every coffee shop, ranging from a muffin, scone or other pastry to a larger monthly prize. Not sold on using mugs from the shop? Have a favorite mug?

Have it ever occurred to you, while opening an automatic door by pushing a button, that you are very lazy? Everyday this lazy behavior ends up in thousands of people pushing buttons to open electric doors. Instead we made it funny to open these doors manually. When pushing the door manually, and saving energy, you get a crowd cheering from the loudspeaker installed on top of the door. Afterwards, while leaving the door, you'll feel aroused since the crowd has cheered you up. Perhaps you got some exercise as well. Submitted by Joakim & Tomas.

Lock your seatbelt and win a prize!!! It results very negative and boring for the common citizen being obligued by the law to wear the seatbelt when driving their cars, but what if wearing the seatbelt becomes a fun thing to do? With this program every time you wear a seatbelt, the click system counts it, and when you get to a determined number, suprise!!! The counter sounds like a jackpot and you get a text from your insurance company telling you that you have an special gift waiting at the service station.

Moving is fun!

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.

A simple, inexpensive and direct idea to make people more active during ‘dead’ times. Think of all the wasted time you spend commuting, stuck in traffic, buses and trains... Springs can be replacing handles or hang together with them, also they could be attached to the bus walls and will be accompanied by fun messages that invite people to try them out. You could also use special strenght-measurer handles, (already existing in the market), to make it more fun!
