Guess the Right Weight

2021-12-03 14:55 - 0 Comments

In cities we encounter the problem of drivers not stopping at pedestrian crossings if there's no red light. This idea will prove that encouraging drivers with a little fun test results for the better and many more will stop. The idea is very simple: drivers are encouraged to guess the right weight of the pedestrians that are waiting to cross the street. When a pedestrian is waiting to cross, a big sign could be read by the drivers. This will say: Guess the Right Weight. The driver will stop to see if he/she can guess the weight of the pedestrian or pedestrians that are about to cross.

Crying Tap

2021-12-16 16:23 - 0 Comments

There is not enough fresh water on this planet. There are countries without enough water to drink.
Through this design I want to spread the Save Water message.

Whenever people turn on the tap and water flows more than 3 seconds , a crying baby sound starts and goes on increasing till they turn off the tap.
They can see a Crying Emoticon on the tap which says " There is not enough fresh water on Earth ".

This is a funny way to spread the message which needs a lot of attention and make people use sufficient water but not waste.

Stockholm is your playground! In the streets, a giant network of red lines and nodes is painted. At each node, there is a question or a statement that encourages pedestrians to answer the question by choosing one of two or more red lines that represent different answers. This will encourage people to walk more because it's fun to see where the red lines lead and what questions come next! And the sidewalks won't look so boring either.

Happy notes

2021-12-16 12:17 - 0 Comments

Those angry notes can be found everywhere. On the windshield, in the laundry room, at work and on notice boards. To threaten and menace have never been a very good strategy.

But a warm, humble and geeky voice can get people to cooperate and even do it with a smile and good humor. "Happy Notes" are nice little notes that encourage people to use their common sense and chip in. After all, who wouldn't rather hear that they are awesome rather than being stupid?

Polite Light

2021-11-24 16:10 - 0 Comments

People often leave their offices at the end of the day and forget the lights on. This is bad for the company and for the environment. Think about it: if a person works from 8am to 6pm, the lights should be on for only 10 hours, but if they forget to turn it off, it's on for 24 hours, more than twice the necessary. So, can we solve that problem by making turning off the lights fun? My idea is to have a "polite light" that thanks the person every time he/she turns it off. We could use different voices and different languages to say thank you, found in movies or music.

Lets encourage people to use dryers instead of paper towels in public bathrooms. Lets add a little harmonica that sounds with the dryer's air and that people can move from side to side. Lets dry dry our hands, have fun and save some trees, all at the same time! Submitted by Lorena Stuani.

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.

About 30% of people dont wash there hands after going to the bathroom. So creating a musical sink would be a fun way to start having people wash there hands. When you turn the fauset music would start playing and once you turned it off the music would stop.

Public Water

The Solution & Design Concept
The redesigned public waterspout is free filtered tap water and easy to use. The spout is covered so there is no way one can touch the area where the water is dispensed to prevent the chance of contamination. To cut out even more germs, there is a “say when” mechanism that releases the water. Inside of the aqueduct inspired design is a filtering system connected to standard tap water pipes. The filtering system will be changed routinely by local state employees to guarentee freshness and quality.

Can you make people less grumpy while waiting in the queue? The idea is to take advantage that the ticket is printed with a number and add some jokes, riddles or funny quotes. In case of a riddle when the person gets to be called to the desk the answer is revealed. Submitted by Rui Miguel Conde

Workout Games

2021-11-02 10:48 - 0 Comments

There are vast amounts of games, and lots of different styles that people enjoy. Often bars will have a touchscreen with a variety of entertainment. All of them have a challenge, and with these challenges, I feel people can become extremely motivated to workout... or to them "get to the next level of the game." You see this effect constantly, when people who refuse to run for exercise, will run twice as much when playing a sport. Sports are the primal proof and exercise games are the perfect way to take this hard-wired healthy exercise to the next level.

Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.

Future ex-smoker helping booth

2021-12-16 14:10 - 0 Comments

Smoking cost a lot both to individual and societies: healthcare, litter, fires, land used to grow tobacco instead of food, lost productivity, etc. In order to help people quit smoking, booths could be installed in cities where future ex-smokers could get help during craving periods. During that hard moment, their mind and body would be solicitated by fun things so that they could forget about the need of nicotine. Future ex-smokers would be given a card with a code so that no helping session would be the same for them.

Platform Color Poles

2021-11-12 15:08 - 0 Comments

Can you make train platforms safer through fun? Train platforms can be a dangerous place. A lot of people get injured every year when not exercising caution and parents are often anxious about their kids wandering about. The poles would light up when the train is either rushing through or coming into the station. People can standing in the "safe" area will activate the colored lights on the pole. The more people who stand in the safe area, the higher the colors will go, encouraging social gathering in the "safe" area to create an effect you could not do on your own. Fun = safer!

Fun Recycling

To encourage people to recycle, recycling machines need to serve more than their actual function. The Better day recycling machine rewards the user by telling him different kinds of information regarding the amount of recycling done. In Canada, you get back a deposit while returning empty bottles (plastic or glass). While having the cash back through a receipt, the Better day recycling machine speaks out a sentence and prints it out as the usual receipt gets out. From 1 to 5 bottles the user gets a message to brighten his day (You are a wonderful person).

The machine will take any kind (and color) of plastic bags. 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.

The Karaoke bus

2021-12-16 09:36 - 0 Comments

Can you make more people use the public transport? What if a bus would have an interactive karaoke system? This bus would know how many people would be inside it and would light or make a sound either on the seat or on the handle where a person would be located. This would mean that it the person would be the one to sing. Screens would be located in different places in side the bus. This could be an attraction to make more people leave their cars at home and at the same time arrive work with a smile!

Many young adults spend a lot of their time playing video games. What if you could actually learna by achieving objectives in games? Instead of only earning points you could also grow in knowledge. The video game industry in general should focus on games being more of a learning platform than a solely entertainment platform. The software should be developed by the gaming console companies and should be entirely open-source, in terms of content that could be incorporated into the games.
