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.

The object of the game is to insert cans inside a huge see-through Piggy Bank to collect it. A bling bling sound play for each cans inserted and the piggy bank indicate the weight level (skinny to big) of the metal collected. So, people can figure out the impact of the metal collected on the environment if its not the case. Submitted by Sandrine.

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.

Planet Earth Climbing Wall

2021-12-16 19:54 - 0 Comments

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

The Fun Theory award winner - The Speed Camera Lottery

Idea: Rewarding Speed Limit Signs - Submitted by Kevin Richardson (USA).

Can we get more people to obey the speed limit by making it fun to do? The idea here is capture on camera the people who keep to the speed limit. They would have their photos taken and registration numbers recorded and entered into a lottery. Winners would recieve cash prizes and be notified by post. Better still, the winnig pot would come from the people who were caught speeding.

It will compress them towards the walls of a transparent bin tube. the bin will also be in various shapes (animals, cars, trees etc) There will be a whole line of shapes for the bins, so that in each location it will be different and new! When enough plastic bags are thrown inside, a colorful statue will be created.

Play GETH2O to Spread Peace

2021-12-16 09:47 - 0 Comments

GETH2O is a strategic board game that aims to develop a culture of peace amongst young people. It will be used in youth groups and community centres in order to reach a large audience across Kenya (50 million people). The central theme of the board game is the chronic water shortages in the slums of Nairobi. So doing the game encapsulates both the larger issues and the daily obstacles in the lives of our target group, the young people. Larger issues such as corruption, leadership and human rights, daily obstacles such as peer pressure, crime and water shortages.

Fun Automatic Doors

2021-12-16 13:36 - 0 Comments

I could see that the people always prefer the electric doors then the normal doors because the electric doors always open themselves and the normal doors you have to push or pull. My idea is that when someone open the normal doors it will have a camera that takes your picture and when you open it, the picture will appear on a big screen which will say welcome to you! It will be fun to see your picture on a big screen. Submitted by Alejandro Valladares.

Speed limit competition

2021-12-16 09:35 - 0 Comments

Nobody likes speed limits but if we make it fun drivers will look forward to do not exceed it. HOW?

We can see radars on the street to show us our speed.But mostly there is nothing more.
If we do a speed competition drivers will have a fun.
Speed radar will measure your actual speed and compare speeds of cars before you.
CAr which will drive as close as possible to speed limit will be placed better that others. But if you overcome speed limit you will be disqualified.

Example:
Imagine actual speed limit is 35km/h

Cars before you were driving :
1, 32,5km/h
2, 31,4km/h

As there are bike stations in the street to encourage people to ride and help this way to
take care of their health and the planet, it will be “clown shoes stations”, where people
can come and put big clown shoes on their own shoes.
This simple action would make some positive change on the mood of their day.

Enjoy My View

2021-12-16 19:45 - 0 Comments

A periscope is attached to a bus stop. It aims to entertain and reduce the stress of commuters, avoiding the wait/walk dilemma. It transforms the bus stop into a playground by providing a fun diversion while waiting for the bus. The commuters can not only see if the bus is coming but by using the periscope handler, they can explore other views of the city. At the same time it works as a critical object: by being present, it also aims to initiate a conversation about the problem and the lack of the real-time information system in NYC bus stops.

The Zischer

2021-12-15 21:39 - 0 Comments

Disposal of Cigarette Ends: How can we make it fun? Through the Zischer. The Zischer is located at bus stops or other public venues. It is a trashcan designed specifically for cigarette ends. Above the Zischer, there is a sign, asking people to throw their cigarette ends into a hole at the top of the can. When the cigarette enters the hole it passes a light barrier, which activates the mechanism. The electronics and motor are set into motion and soap bubbles come out of holes on the sides of the Zischer each time a cigarette end is disposed.

Can you make people recycle more paper? What if the paper you would bring to the recycle bin could be weighted and a discount ticket to buy more paper would be printed according to the amount of paper recycled? This could reduce the amount of paper needed to be produced.

Supermarket Waiting Line

Supermarket Waiting Line

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.

A fun game to play at the traffic lights. You have to get to 20 points by pushing the right buttons in the right order. You can play against the clock or versus an opponent on the other side of the street. When you get enough points to win, the lights change to green so you can cross.

No boring bus stop

The Bus Stops are boring places, we intend, using less money as possible, to transform them into interactive and joyfully places. Every week a big crosswords table will be installed at the bus stop. The people that are waiting for the bus could play completing the crosswords, using a big pencil (to avoid people to steal it) connected to the bus stop with a little chain…
