G.O.G.O (get off / get on)

2021-12-15 14:57 - 0 Comments

"Problem" to fix: People not waiting for you to get off the train and rushing to get in. Fun solution : to project on the floor quiz (and related solutions after a while), daily news or animations (or whatever catch people's attention) that to be watched or read push people to stand propertly in front of the projection and at the same time let people in getting off walking on a red carpet, projected as well.

Musical Bikes

A bike that every time you paddle it sounds with harmonious music. Nowadays a lot of people use cars which produce carbon dioxide. People would chose to ride their bikes instead, enjoying a nice tune while saving the planet. An exercise bike with this function would help people take off some pounds of weight while having a nice time.

Thermochromic Hand Dryer

2021-11-30 16:48 - 0 Comments

The thermo chromic hand dryer is a simple and fun way to indirectly increase participation in hand washing via adding an element of fun at the secondary stage – hand drying. Adding thermochromic paint to the metal parts, most notably the directional nozzle, will induce a visible and spectacular colour change as hot air comes into contact with the metal upon a user activating the hand dryer. The engaging effect is similar to that produced by thermocolour t-shirts and thermochromic mugs.

Skin cancer is on the rise. Dermatologists have 2 big concerns: 1). People don't put on enough sunscreen 2). They don't reapply often enough. To raise awareness in a memorable way, FunScreen can be set up at public pools and beaches, either temporarily or permanently. A misting product (much like a spray tan), FunScreen offers full UVA/UVB coverage that is applied in a unique way. People stand beneath the FunScreen "shower head" and activate it by pulling a string. A highly danceable tune begins playing as the FunScreen sprays the person beneath.

A Good Clean Joke

2021-12-16 20:51 - 0 Comments

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.

Soap Busters

2021-12-15 20:59 - 0 Comments

For the prevention of H1N1 flu, the guidelines stress washing one's hands with SOAP. Yet, some people in public bathrooms ignore the soap dispensers. They either skip washing their hands, or they merely rinse them in water. We propose posting above the soap dispensers a sign saying, "USE SOAP to COPE with H1N1". The soap dispensers would be equipped with a motion-triggered recording emitting a "Thank you" -- each “Thank you” in a different language.

As a society, we are disengaged from our future (i.e. we don't work together to bring about social change more often and more forcefully). We also strongly believe that the main reason for this is the fact that we are built to discount issues that we are not immediately connected with (either in terms of time or in terms of location). What we propose is that we use technology to break down this artificial barriers we create in our mind between us and our future and between us and the rest of the world.

Slow Down, Hit The Bullseye, Save Lives. Road Darts can be played anywhere. However, due to the problem of slowing people down too much in a congested area, it is recommended to do testing of Road Darts in a busier residential area first to see if it scales. Metrics -A researcher can monitor the proposed location during busy hours for a defined period (24 hrs) using a radar detection device w/o revealing his or her presence. This creates a control. -Then a traditional speed detection device (that displays the current speed numerically) should be placed at the location.

The negative mood of the great majority of people that can result on further violence or isolation. To make people realize that they have enough reasons to be happy, they just need a detonator to speak out and share them.

These days all the people is seeking to be famous, to be broadcasted, express themselves; this “Happy Booth”, located in any public space, is a nice way to do this.

Velcro Grocery Bag

2021-12-15 16:32 - 0 Comments

The main problem of the green grocery bag is that people forget it at home. We wanted to change the mindset of shoppers when it comes to bags: today it costs them in Toronto 5 cents for every plastic bag. It is obvious that a cost is not a deterrent of forgetfulness. We want them to think of the green bag in terms of savings. To that effect we are proposing a grocery bag that you can stick velcro grocery list items on. This saves the shopper time from having to write a list or call their spouse to tell them what they need to buy. It also saves their sanity because.

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.

Remember the little flipbooks you had when you were a kid? The kind you could flip through quickly and see a little movie, This might be the simplest way of animating a picture but a filmreel doesn't act all that different. Think of all the boring hours you have spent looking out of the window into nothingness while commuting on the Metro train or underground. Now, I am a big fan of grafitti and street art, but it doesn't really serve its purpose in 60 km/h when everything turns into a blur. What if we could use the speed of the train to emulate a lens travelling down a filmreel?

Dance for Healthy Snacks

2021-12-16 19:13 - 0 Comments

Encourage the choice of nutritional snacks. We are inundated with vending machines peddling unhealthy snacks. We propose to place a "Dance for Healthy Snacks" vending machine adjacent to a normal "candies and chips" vending machine. In both cases persons would pay a flat fee (e.g. 50 cents) for a snack item. The difference is that the "Dance for Healthy Snacks" requires the snack selection to be done via a dancing game. Rather than selecting a snack by pushing a button ("G2"), you have to dance on the footpad -- following the onscreen queues -- to successfully select the snack item.

In many cities, people that live in apartment buildings don’t really know their own neighbors. Talking Buildings is an activity created to help transform urban apartment buildings into living communities, filled with support and love. The activity is quite simple, consisting of a set of challenges to be placed daily in the building’s mailboxes, throughout a given week. These challenges are handed out by someone who lives in the building and wants to be a change agent.

This is for the checkouts in large (or medium, even small and mini) supermarkets. The dividers on the transport belt are put in a gully by the cassier. This is at the end of the transport belt, But the dividers tradionaly are needed at the beginning. By giving the diveders a sound of people enjoying a ride (little child on bicycle, people in rollercoaster) people will be stimulated to slide the divider to the beginning of the transport belt.

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.
