There will be 2 small sensors in the recycling bin that will detect rubbish or Movement and once triggered it will activate the speaker which will then say “Thanks.” but then will say an interesting fact like “ You have just saved the average person 10% of work of making a coke can or crisp packet or something the same and that will go far to be used by someone else or you never know it could end up that you drinking out of the same can you have used before”.

MosaiGum is the simplest solution to avoid chewing gums related problems. Put your chewed gum in one of the free spaces of the mosaic and see the picture that evolves everyday. When a mosaic is full a plastic film can be removed and substituded by a new one with a new picture.
Come on and start creating your MosaiGum!

Recycle Booth

2021-11-17 12:31 - 0 Comments

Recycle Booth is a fun way to encourage people to recycle any sort of material. When you place the material (e.g. sheet of unwanted paper) into the corresponding compartment, the machine will be triggered. From then on, you follow the on screen instructions which will guide you through how to use the booth (which will act like a photo/sticker booth) to take a photo and after taking the photo, you can decorate it with the interactive pen attached to the machine and leave an on-screen message, e.g. "I recycled" or your name.

The Red Light Player

2021-12-15 21:10 - 0 Comments

Waiting for the red man to change on the traffic light, while necessary for maintaining your life, is a bummer. Our aim was making the wait pleasurable. We did it by posting a highly competent street musician in one side of a heavily traveled zebra crossing. Our guy plays when the light is red, and rests when it turns green. For our special operation we made double bass covers for famous songs containing words like "stop", "stand", etc.

I want to create a mobile, sectional pipe organ that can be installed and performed anywhere, turning the space itself into a unique, reactive instrument. A large portion of the project will be public installations, allowing people to see, play, and experience the instrument for themselves. The idea is to inform people about an awesome instrument that is little understood and seldom played with by creating a invasive and interactive version that can be played by anyone. I've designed a pipe organ in which each pipe is independent, connected along to a central air supply through a long hose.

Battery Video Cut

2021-12-16 16:05 - 0 Comments

What is the matter? We would like people to bring their old batteries for recycling. But how? Let’s imagine the situation: A recycle bin in the middle of the street, behind it a green background (like for the cinema), in front of it a video camera. You put your bag with batteries in the bin. After that you will be recorded during ten seconds. Do what you want! Be creative! And here comes the real innovation: Find yourself back on the Internet!! Thanks to the green background you and the bin will be inserted in a random video/background: a beach, a mountain, a city, the sky.

We don't conceive a transportation system as embodying neutral values, but recognize it as a social construction that creates a certain type of power structure. Metro system hides people's characters, hence a cheerless atmosphere is created. How does this value constitutes norms and results how people behave and use the urban space?

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. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Submitted by Gilles Bonifait.

Airport Rhythms

2021-11-19 17:08 - 0 Comments

In several of the hallways connecting terminals in airports, you can lay down strips of small "speed bumps" in a precise pattern. When rolling bags roll over these strips of small little bumps, the thudding of the wheels will make the rhythm that is written on the floor (i.e. tango, samba, salsa etc). Some of these strips will be "partner" rhythms, where it takes two or more people walking at the same pace to make the beat.

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.

How to make vacuum cleaning fun?
Everyone loves karaoke, SingStar and other fun singing games.
The Sing'n'Clean gadget for your vacuum cleaner is a game, where you can sing karaoke and score points while you are cleaning. The lyrics display is placed on the "head" of the vacuum cleaner, for you to read and sing them while focusing on cleaning.
A censor is registrating the ammount of dirt you collect and how well you clean the house. Points for cleaning and points for singing are added up, so you get a final Sing'n'Clean score.

Diet elevator

Diet elevator

I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.

Fun Toys Storaging

2021-11-23 16:24 - 0 Comments

BAD BEHAVIOR: Toys cluttering the house and no one picking up toys. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: A device similar to a wastebasket would be placed on top of the toy box or toy storage container. This device would have a simple counter that counts the number of toys per second or minute that were put into the container. As the number increases the device will get louder and louder with bells and whistles to encourage the children to put away the toys.

Break Down Social Barriers

Ticket: "Buy None Get Two Free (ice-creams) - For you and a homeless friend". Give to those who wouldn't normally speak with a homeless person. The enticement and mutual enjoyment of a free ice-cream each may help break down the social barriers and get them talking. It would then have long lasting benefits, for the cost of just a few ice-creams.

Crosswalks are everywhere where we need them, but paradoxically people prefer to cross the street on other places, even when the crosswalk is only few meters away. This causes accidents.

In the videoclip from Michael Jacksons „Billie Jean“, he walks on a path and everything he touches lights up. I always found that fascinating, specially the lights on the floor.

Who is it?

2021-12-15 19:55 - 0 Comments

How can we get children to wash their hands after using the toilet? We involve them into a quiz: When they push the soap dispenser they hear the question "Who is it?" Then, when they turn on the water for washing their hands they will here the typically sound of an animal. (The animal sound changes each time, so that they do not automatically know the answer) After washing the hands for 30 seconds they will get the answer (the name of the animal). If they wash their hands too short they do not get the answer.

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.

Yes-U-CAN

Standard Recycling bins are often used inappropriately or not used at all, but 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 flies 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 have many excuses to don't use the zebra crossing. By doing this, they put themselves, other pedestrians and drivers in danger. So how can we make the path to the traffic light more interesting causing people to walk all the way to the zebra crossing? By making it more fun.
Everybody loves popping bubble wraps. By putting footprints with eletronic sensors connected to speakers, people'd feel like they're popping it by stepping on the footprints. This way, we'd be using their fascination with bubble wrap to lead them to the crosswalk.
