People are not recycling their cans and bottles.
I think a fun way to recycle would change everybodys attitude by making a hockey recycling net. Its basically a hockey net loacated at a Recycle Depot. You have to shoot your cans and bottles in the net and you get points. Its fun and your helping the evironment!

Parking meter - Mr and Mrs Depressed

2021-12-15 23:17 - 0 Comments

Every object in our surrounding have an emotional connection to us (both good and bad feeling), especially the objects that are commonly seen on the street that people interact with everyday. People hate parking meters, which cause them to lose money. Since, I believe everyone should enjoy their lives, despite the bad things. Therefore, I choose to re-design the physical aspect of the parking meter so that people would have fun when using them. As a result, the parking meter is re-designed with the same function but offer a different value to the user.

The Vending Machine Project

Our entry is a sweets vending machine that teaches social responsibility. It gives you the choice of how much you pay. The amount you pay doesn't affect the amount of sweets you get, but the amount of sweets the next people will get. The change is small but cumulative. If people are selfish and pay less money, at the end of the day the machine will be dispensing a very small amount of sweets. If people work for the greater good, at the end of the day they'll be getting lots of sweets for their money. Inskickad av Euan Mils.

It would be good for the battle against climate change, if we could motivate multi-fuel car owners to really use the ethanol pump. So how can we make that experience more fun? If the drivers choose the ethanol pump, a group of highly efficient Pit Stop Engineers would do everything for him, just lika a real Formula One driver!

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.

Stopping A Stopping Problem

This device incentivizes drivers to stop at a stoplight by giving the first person in line a code they can call in to their local DMV and have a chance to win a lottery prize of "x" amount. The camera on top of the stoplight records the individual's license plate number. Drivers give their license plate number over the phone and confirm that they are the first driver in line and nobody else can call in and claim their lottery entry for them.

Cigarette Litter Joke

2021-12-16 10:10 - 0 Comments

Tired of all the cigarettes on the ground? This simple system is the solution. People will just have to put their cigarette litter in the hole of the "box" and thanks to a proximity sensor, it will display a funny joke on the screen that will make the people happier for the rest of the day, and they will speak about this joke or this concept around them. Thanks to this, more and more people will throw their used cigarettes (or paper) in that box.
In the end, this will save the environment and will contribute to the people happiness. Submitted by Fred Pigeard

It is estimated that somewhere between 500 billion and one trillion plastic bags are consumed throughout the world each year and that by 1996, four out of every five grocery bags used were plastic (source: The Environmental Literacy Council)! But did you know that the production of paper bags generate 70% more air and 50 times more water pollutants than the production of plastic bags?

Little things can make a big difference. So when a group of people join to spare our planet's resources, even if for a brief moment, that makes a huge difference. We spend too much of our planet's energy and so little of ours, that doesn't seem fair. So mix sedentarism and energy consuming, add a bit of fun to it, and we bake a fresh new idea. Just out of the oven: Cine Eco. This ecological wave claims for new ecological ideas. Movies have become one of peoples favorite pastime.

Conscious Shower

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.

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.

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.

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.

With cigarettes there are two problems. Firstly people smoke them and secondly they throw cigarette butts on the street. My invention is fun and can change peoples behaviour for the better. The bin has a sound system, a sensory system, a mini player and an open mouth. When people put out cigarettes on the bin's tongue and throw it in the mouth the sensory switch will play a cough sound automatically. Submitted by Kakha Khabeishvili.

Problem
The use of the bicycle as a daily transport system is not a new idea. Everybody knows the health and environmental benefits of riding a bicycle. But several constrains, such as weather uncertainty, urban street morphology, traffic hazards, and even laziness, all have a significant impact in the – limited – use of the bicycle in urban areas.

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
