Mint Me - Book Return

2021-11-02 16:57 - 0 Comments

The idea is simple: When you return a book to the library you get a sweet mint. It’s a fun pat on the back for reading a book and returning it. Children would be enthused by a little gesture like this and it would encourage them to read more. Adults would enjoy a smile and a chuckle. The actual machine would just be a dispenser attached to the book return slot. When a book is returned a button is triggered and lights up for 5 seconds - You can then press the button and it dispenses a sweet mint.

How many time shave you left the room without turning off the light? A simple solutuon could be a light switch with a sensor that detects when you are about to leave the room, and begins to sing a little tune. This reminds you to turn off the light and you do so by singing the same tune back.

Steer the vaccum cleaner with a joystick. To see who has cleaned the most, you look at a screen. There are also laser canons on the vaccum cleaners, and if player one hits his opponent, his vaccum cleaner will stand still for 15 seconds. The winner is the player who has cleaned the biggest area.

Problem: Shopping carts are not being returned. Instead they are left scattered around the parking lot, often occupying a parking space and sometimes rolling in to vehicles causing damage while unsuspecting shoppers are off shopping.

By addressing the growing hazards of the H1N1, the common flu, and germs in general, A Good “Clean” Joke creates a fun and eye catching experience at an otherwise boring hand sanitizer station. Hand sanitizer stations have been popping up all over the world in public and private facilties alike. Unfortunaetly, they seem to have one major drawback… nobody uses them. Even in cafeteries, people eat their food without using designated hand cleaning stations less than fifteen feet away. A Good “Clean” jokes hopes to prevent this by supplying not just cleanliness, but laughter.

Garbage Jukebox

Can we keep the streets cleaner by making it fun to do? It’s common in both Portugal and Spain to have street parties on warm weekend nights. The problem though is the rubbish these parties make. The solution here is to make a juke box that isn’t powered by coins, but drinks cans and bottles. By cleaning up you can keep the party going.

How do we get more people to excercise? The idea here is to combine a standard step machine with a pinball machine. The machine is then operated by moving your feet to control each arm inside the machine. Hit the ball, get points and have fun!

Road Roller Iron

2021-12-15 20:25 - 0 Comments

Ironing clothes can be a boring task and getting the creases removed from your clothes perfectly is next to impossible. Now all you need to do is place your shirt on a customized iron board with sensors. You need to define the task. What is to be ironed? Shirt, trouser etc. The board defines your play area with lights depending on your selection. Creases are highlighted. Place the mini road roller iron on the shirt, sit back and let the fun begin. With a remote control you need to guide the road roller around the highlighted creases. If you move out of your play area, you lose points.

Hula Hoop Alarm Clock

2021-11-19 12:10 - 0 Comments

Instead of getting up by a blasting and annoying sound, customized jokes (diverse) should hit the first note. After an increasingly drifting laugh the user should turn off the "alarm" by hula hooping it with whichever part of her/his body she/he wants to exercise. Thus, the product won't only promote a funner but healthier morning wake up.

The final lap

The final lap is about a motivation for people to do exercise. It consists in placing flex panels along the racing track with several movement sensors, while activating them will project several images and the corresponding sound from speakers and canyons, so when the runner pass through will suddenly appear.
There are many options that will change weekly, for example: other race competitors running with you simulating a real race, or you could run with the Forrest Gump famous character. Submitted by Alejandra Gonzalez

Disco Boxing is an interactive boxing game designed for people to explore healthy ways of relieving stress, exercising and having fun. The harder and faster you hit the punching bags, the more lights you are able to light up, similar to a carnival "strong man" game. The video is a clip of a working prototype we built this summer.

Rainbow Race Treadmill

2021-12-15 21:07 - 0 Comments

Rainbow Race Treadmill is a fun way to exercise. We took the concept of Nintendo Mario Kart and applied it to a treadmill. While running on the treadmill, the runner will focus on a screen in front of the treadmill that displays the rainbow race track in Mario Kart. Also, the treadmill itself has a rainbow pattern to imitate the idea that the runner is actually running on the rainbow race track. The runner can get bonuses while running, which creates an enjoyable running experience. The runner can go as fast or slow as she or he wants to accommodate all ages and exercise abilities.

Washed up Prize Club

Not many guys wash their hands coming out of a public washroom. I think if it was more fun than people would do it all the time and it would promote good hygiene. I think that the taps should play music while they are washing their hands and if the wash them for the correct amount of time (minimum of 15 to 20 seconds of lathering) then a prize drops out of a slot for them. This could be a mint or something like that. Just an idea.

Batteries disposed irresponsibly in municipal landfills or trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of toxic substances in the air and water. So, a battery waste prevention and recycling campaign is more than welcomed. And how can we stimulate people in joining and promoting these initiatives more but by making this entertaining, fun and engaging for them?

Cheerful Car Faces

2021-11-23 16:13 - 0 Comments

Cars often have "faces" - the front grille and headlights can make a face, the tail-lights and trunk can make a face. Many of these faces look angry, dour, and even menacing. Why not design other options? It would be more fun to see cheerful, mysterious, serene, whimsical faces when driving. It might be harder to get mad at a car that looked like it was smiling at you.

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.

When you talk to the plants they expire oxygen that reduces the green house effect. Make them talk! Inside the sunflowers there are mounted microphones and speakers. With a speech syntezeiser they can listen, answer, laugh and cry.
