No boring bus stop

2021-12-15 17:21 - 0 Comments

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…

Just Cycle It

2021-12-15 19:50 - 0 Comments

Cycle in the city is a good thing! We intend to promote the use of bikes in the city. More bikes mean fewer cars in the streets and a more beautiful city. The way to promote the use of bikes is simple! The local administration gives the bikers an odometer. The bikers who are moving in the city, augment the kilometres in the odometer. When the bikers want, comes back to the local administration and shows the kilometres they made. The local administration gives some gifts to the bikers such as services, tax deductions, theater tickets etc. In relation to the kilometres they made.

Guitar seat belt

2021-12-15 21:45 - 0 Comments

It's always a great habit to have the seat belt on when driving a car, the thing is that, as a passenger, this habit does not exist as firmly as when driving. So, the question would be: can we get more people to use their seat belt by making it fun to do?. This idea is great either for kids, who are known for disliking seat belts, or for anyone that wants to have fun by being safe.

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.

Sometimes people forget about bicycles. But cycling could be more funny and attractive mean of transport. Small changes of our ordinary cycling paths could encourage a lot of people to choose bicycle as the main transport mean to go to work, shops or somewhere else. The path should be interactive, interesting and "new" every day. How could the cycling path be transformed? Here are few solutions that can be combined and used in a different places of the path: 1. Changing jokes every day on the board above the path; 2.

In using fun to make people help each other, we asked the question, can we get people to hold a door open for other people?

With "The People Counter", motion sensors and sound will be used to get people to continue holding the door open for others. Once another person walks through the door, sensors will react and cause audio to play. The audio will give the person holding the door a simple reminder to help others, in a fun and new way

Recycled Vending Machine

In some countries people don't see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Soda Recycling-Vending Machine that will allow everybody to purchase a new icy soda by paying with their old cans! How it works? Once the machine has confirmed that is in fact a soda can (and no plastic or glass bottles for example) and the consumer has selected the drink, the old can goes to the inner container, the mechanism activates and the buyer gets a nice icy and refreshing soda!

Over the Weather

Over the weather. How to make bad weather fun? Location : Copenhagen, but the project is adaptable to other cities Description: Weather changes. And we can feel this change, as the temperature drops, the rain starts to drip, the winds starts howling. We notice the change, and it affects our lives in many ways. In Copenhagen, everyone is worried about the weather and everybody talks about it. It’s a recurrent subject, more than in other cities, because here, the weather is changing so often. Due of the proximity of the sea, there is a lot of wind, especially when the seasons are changing.

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.

Producing green energy generated by people (during angry, fun and releasing stress, boredom), saving the planet and having fun (turning angry, stressful mood into something chirpy).

People generate lots of energy everyday, Kids playtime, teenagers having some fun or blowing 'off steam', bored and restless individuals, why not get these individuals (and we have alot of them in this world) to contribute to producing green energy via Human Powered Kinetic Energy Technology?

A huge problem for any parent couple - to make children wash their hands every time they get dirty.
To solve this problem let's think of a carrot and stick method of teaching - however this time only about the carrot part. There should be a strong motivator of why a youngster must wash his hands.
What if s/he could get something out of the soap after using it? This would facilitate him/her to wash hands as frequently as possible to wash the soap off for getting what's inside it.

Road Roller Iron

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.

There are motorists who try to be in the fast lane in spite of knowing that they would need to change lanes in a short distance

1) The stretch just before a junction is treated as a point for motorist to correct their lanes. This leads to confusion, traffic jams and accidents.

2) If which car is headed in what direction is known in advance then it would be easier to control traffic

3) Traffic Tetris makes this possible in a fun way.

To participate, every motorist needs to define his destination and the route he’d take. Vehicles heading in the same direction are given one color.

Millions of bottles of beer are consumed around the world every year. The bottles are often recycled, but what about the metal beer tops? The idea here is to build a game of connect four into the side of the beer crate. The bottle tops can be used as the counters to the game and returned with the empty bottles.

Can a sanitizing water instrument save lives? Two million children die each year in developing countries from drinking unsafe water.* Despite numerous cheap and effective treatment technologies,* water continues to be consumed untreated. Studies* show that many poor people are skeptical of the link between water quality and the deaths of their children. Thus, the problem of providing safe water to children is not one of technology, but of a lack of incentive,* or a lack of fun! What if we could make it fun to sanitize drinking water?

Having fever is never a pleasant thought. But a little bit of science could make you look forward to being unwell. Fever meter is a fun innovation based on the concept of a Hand Boiler. Pleasant colored bulbs are attached to the sides of your bed. Each attached with transparent thin tubes running across the walls and ceiling of your room. When you touch the bulbs the warmth makes the colored liquid run across the room in patterns. If you touch multiple bulbs with your hands and feet you get more colors and patterns. Patterns could be changed as the tubes are flexible.
