Eletricity Generator BICycle will replace all seats in the subway train. This way people instead of just sitting down and getting fat or sleeping, they can make sports, generate eletricity for the train, and of course have lots of fun. You can even get a discount ticket for the subway when you have generated enough eletricity watts. Submitted by Diego Santos.

Air-drying on a clothesline or rack instead of machine is an easy way to cut energy usage and also save money. With "Who Wants to be a Laundry-naire?" you can turn a chore into a game show! Watch the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" style gameshow on the clip-on screen, and buzz in your answers by pressing the letter keys beside each clothes line (can play with a partner...good incentive to turn laundry into a social event with other family members).

The Elder SHAKE

2021-11-19 11:24 - 0 Comments

In many countries people enters the bus form its front door, making it easier for the driver to identify if there's an elder person getting in. People don't always give away their seats to an elder. The idea here is that when the driver sees an elder he will activate the ELDER SHAKE! button, making all the seats to shake a little bit to let people know they should give away their seat(s) to an elder person.

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.

How do we get people to go outside and walk even though it's dark and cold? What you need is light and joy, and we could achieve this by making a game and sound machine. Pressing the button starts a game where you have to put out as many lights as possible along a given path. The lamps are in the ground and are put out when someone stands on them. Whoever puts out most lights wins! Submitted by Maja Petersson

2021-11-20 10:35 - 0 Comments

The use of dividers on the supermarket checkout transport belt is quite common. The dividers usually are put in a gully by the checkout person. the dividers usually are concentrated at the end side, where they are put in the gully, not at the beginning, where they are needed. By giving sounds to the sliding dividers people will be tempted to slide them to the other people at the beginning of the transport belt. Additionally there can be a speed meter to look at the speed of your slide. But this can become dangerous, so maybe a catching net at the end of the gully.

Spread Fun Not Germs

2021-12-15 21:34 - 0 Comments

In society today, there is a great deal of concern over the spread of germs and viruses. This “fear” is increased amongst people globally, by the widespread media attention & coverage of viruses such as H1N1.

On a daily basis, many people do not wash their hands after using the bathroom, or before consuming food. In airports, we have noticed that fewer people wash their hands after using the bathroom, than people who are using public bathrooms elsewhere. We believe that this occurs, because people are often in a rush when travelling.

Voice Of Mother Earth - in your home!

Often people don't care how increased power consumption impacts our environment. If one could replace traditional power counter in his home by VOME - Voice Of Mother Earth module he would hear sounds like wheeze, buzz, groan or howl each time power consumption increases significantly. On the other hand once we turn out the devices mother earth will let us know how pleased she is by twittering, cooing or any other nature positive sounds. In this way it would be much funnier to save power, what should result in greater savings, isn't that? Submitted by Marcin Maciejewski.

Both of the idea authors admire taking a shower, not together though :) However, we have rarely thought of how much water we usually consume ineffectively by spending 30 min under the shower. After discussing this issue with other "shower-lovers" it became obvious that the primary reason for spending 30min in the shower is the lack of any time reminders around. To solve this problem and to make keeping time more fun to do, we decided to introduce a "traffic light" system for the sink or the shower, but call it "water light".

Race to the top!

Stairs nowadays are usually accompanied by adjacent escalators/elevators. They're mostly intended for the disabled though many have adopted the 'why walk when you can ride' mentality. Well let's give them a reason to exercise. Have a big red button which is to be pressed at the bottom of the staircase and another similar one at the top (people love pushing buttons, especially when they don't know its function). The button at the bottom activates a hidden stopwatch and the button on top stops the stopwatch. An LED display will show the final time of the persons hike up the stairs.

Lots of parents start involving their children, from an early stage, in different sport activities such as swimming, trekking, climbing. And we all know, in climbing, kids have a special wall arranged for them, with different accessories and helpful supports.

What if, instead of the wall we use a large replica of Planet Earth?
- the mountains chains and volcanoes would come out in relief
- the climbing supports would be fixed in the same places where the mountain peeks are situated on the map

Imagine every car you see on road is fitted with a little device I would like to name “Gotcha”!! This is like a black box which is hidden away in every car (will be good fun trying to find it!) . “Gotcha” is nothing more than a combination of receiver and sender unit with inbuilt GPS. The receiver unit of “Gotcha” receives a signal from a tower (similar to mobile network tower) which constantly sends road speed and location data to all vehicles in its range.

Let Children Grow Up Recyling!

2021-12-15 17:50 - 0 Comments

Children interact with each other, by inventing various games. The most common behavior of children is to climb and get on high places. Psychologists explain this behavior, by children’s’ attempt to see the world from “above”. Children are also very curious and are not afraid from heights. By proposing this installation, we believe to get children involved into the practice of recycling. Such interactive bins can make children aware of their possibilities to throw rubbish in various ways.

I thought of a sequence of thick tiles, made up of four buttons, each of which gets illuminated when a person stops on it. It could be a system of weight sensors.
The whole scheme could also include a turnstile at the end of the path. The rotation of this turnstile should make the colors, illuminating the tiles, change. All these changes could catch the attention of other people coming.

My idea is a chore clock. Basically all it is is a digital stop watch, like those used in the Olympic Games for track events, hanging in the kitchen over the sink or the dishwasher, or in the washroom hanging over the washer and dryer. On the stop watch it has a record time and the name of whom the record belongs to. This will make doing chores competitive and fun and gives the record holder bragging rights in the house, and hopefully keep kids active and burning calories while pitching in around the house.

Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop.
