People tend to pass doormats in public entrances without actively cleaning their shoes. This is a problem, especially in winter, since the shoes are more dirty during the rainy season.

We developed a doormat that increases the time, spent cleaning your shoes and intensifies the contact between the mat´s surface and the sole. But how? By transforming the doormat into a fun sliding puzzle.

The time spent on the doormat increased significantly and people started to interact. The Fun Theory was verified.

People throw garbage in parks, in exactly the same place where you may come to relax with friends or play with your child.
By this gesture they nourish new inhabitants: germs, bugs, worms etc. And they keep asking for more…garbage. We wanted to prevent this behavior in a funny way by confronting people who throw garbage with the direct consequences: a luxurious life for germs.
To illustrate our idea we chose common park scenes: parents playing with children, seniors playing chess, friends having lunch.

Magic BoXchange

Your kid got tired of that old toy and keep asking you to buy something different. To encourage them to exchange the old for a different one, just take them to the Magic BoXchange and they will learn that an old thing can be recycled. All they have to do is to insert the old toy inside the box, wait a little bit, and surprise: a different toy will show up on the other side of the machine. You can choose between boys and girls toys', and if they are not satisfied they can keep on exchanging it. Submitted by Silvia Noronha.

Clink-O

2021-12-16 15:04 - 0 Comments

There's not a lot of incentives to recycle aluminum cans; the bins can be hard to find, they're often confused with trash bins, and the experience of tossing a can rarely makes a person smile. But, things CAN be different! Introducing... Clink-O-- a board and peg game that encourages players to drop their crushed cans into a grid of pegs and test their skill (or luck?) at scoring points in the slots below. Cans are collected beneath the game board and recycled for future use.

Collector Can

2021-12-15 20:22 - 0 Comments

The true about how this new idea born, is that I first think about the challenge of how boring and sometimes tired is to put every can in the floor and then crush each can, the action repeats depending on how many cans you have, and the challenge of make some space, and then recycle each can, it’s just annoying, or simply most of the time people, just mix the cans with all the garbage .Well this is a new container crusher thrasher, where you can put the soda empty cans, and have fun while you recycle.

Cigarette Bin

2021-11-23 16:58 - 0 Comments
My purpose is to find a fun theory to convince Smokers to throw their cigarettes not on the floor but in a bin. My idea is to paint of yellow and white a normal dust bin with ashtray so that it looks like a cigarette. The message should be clear: this looks like a cigarette and it is for cigarettes. On top of the dust bin, where the ashtray is I would put a cover with sensors that react to heat and pressure underneath. When the sensors react a recorder inside the dust bin will play the sound of a person screaming with pain for the burn.

Loving the speed limit

Loving the speed limit

2021-12-07 11:51 - 0 Comments

Sticking to the speed limit. Nobody likes to do that! Why go slow when you can go fast? Of course driving fast is dangerous, with governments implementing speed limits as a result. And there is no reward for good driving, only penalties for bad driving! What this system does is encourage safe driving while making it fun, and rewarding drivers for sticking to the speed limit. How it works is that software is developed that integrates with Sat Navs - and/or takes the form of a standalone device.

Powertopia

2021-12-16 20:48 - 0 Comments

We have become disconnected from the way we generate power and have allowed the use of fossil fuels to become a primary contributor to global warming. Powertopia is a fun, educational playground that teaches children and their parents about renewable energy, the principles of power generation and energy storage. By harnessing the energy that children naturally produce on playgrounds, we can develop their intuition of renewable energy principles. This can ultimately lead to a change in the way children interact with power and understand electricity. Submitted by Oliver Haas

Simple idea: you get a coin or a bunch of them, insert into the machine that will give you a puzzle piece. On the side it will have a board to complete the puzzle. Just find the one's missing and that's it. The more you donate, the more you'll play. Submitted by Raphael Santos.

Gun Trash

2021-12-16 13:31 - 0 Comments

Problem: The problem in the United States is that a lot of people don’t throw the trash were it belong. They don’t care if the trash is every where. We need to do something so they can throw the trash were it needs to go. We have to do something fun that we can do to help our country. It is so important that we do something so our country would not look like a big trash in the whole world. Almost all the people who live in the United States don’t want to help to throw the trash in the trash can. So I got an idea for this problem.

Calories to Watts

2021-12-15 17:08 - 0 Comments

The people exercise to burn calories and become more fit. Various exercise machines are used, such as bikes and elliptical equipment. Weights, wheels, springs, magnets etc. are used to create resistance. Burning calories is not always fun and it is energy wasted in vain. However, if we use electrical generator to create the resistance in the exercise equipment, than our exercise can be used to produce electrical energy. Imagine a gym full of rotational and elliptical equipment and the electricity that can be produced when the gym is full.

Water Bottle Vision

2021-12-07 13:54 - 0 Comments

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.

Cars vs Bikes

2021-12-16 16:03 - 0 Comments

What is the matter? We would like people to realize that biking is also a solution.
But how? It is as easy as a counting machine! The purpose of the machine is to count how many bikers and drivers pass by in a day. The placement would be crucial. It has to stand in between a bicycle path and a street so that people could realize how many cars have passed in comparison with bikes. The trend would be shown on a graphic. Who will act to make it go the “right” way?

Recycling bins

2021-12-16 16:29 - 0 Comments

Recycling bins are often used inappropriately or not used at all. Yes-U-Can is a magnet from all points of view. Its basic design is a very tall inverted translucent bin, where cans fly to the top thanks to a standard low-power electromagnet. Its advantages include:
* People can see their can as it flays over to the top
* Due to its height, the bin is very easy to see even if you are far away
* By catching peoples attention, it collaborates with the amount of garbage collected by the other two standard bins
* It has an increased capacity, only limited by the decided height

People often forget to flush after using the public toilet, then left bad impression to the next user. Instead of normal flushing handle, it’s a slot machine. When you pull it down, it will start rolling and with the sound of coins falling. And see how luck you are this time. Submitted by City Yeast.

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.

Shining darkness

2021-12-15 14:47 - 0 Comments

People always forget to turn the lights off. We need to do something about it. So we came up with an idea to make the darkness glow. We think you could hire artists to use glow-in-the-dark paint to paint walls of schools and public buildings. That would encourage people to turn off the lights even when they are working in the room. If you use clear glow-in-the-dark paint you would have to turn off the lights to see the pretty pictures. It would save alot of energy.

Can You Plinko It?

2021-12-16 15:27 - 0 Comments

My idea is based on the game of Plinko, from the tv show, The Price is Right. It's meant to be a fun way to recycle cans because aluminum is one of the most environmentally harmful minerals to mine. Basically it's a plinko board that is on top of a recycling bin for cans and bottles (only if your region accepts cans and bottles mixed together), so that they can be recycled normally if they'd rather not play.

Hand Wash Arcade

The idea behind this entry is to provide a simple game that elicits proper hand washing hygiene and at the same time keeps the user entertained. A user could be attracted to the screen and the game starts as soon as they step on the mat. They start playing a simple arcade game as soon as they start washing their hands that can be testing their reaction times or have them controlling a flying car through a maze. This game lasts at least as long as doctors recommend hand washes should last. Finally, high scores of the day are displayed. Submitted by Santiago Padilla
