Singing light switch

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.

A story a day keeps the dentist away!

2021-12-15 21:41 - 0 Comments

Teeth washing is not fun, especially for children!
How to help them to transform that 3 minutes, twice a day, in a good time?
The idea is that a “Dental Care Association” promotes this interactive game: children listen to a story while brushing their teeth and than solve some mysteries on the initiative's website. They follow the adventure every day with a different episode.
The solution proposed is good for health, fun for children and helpful for parents!

Snapshot crossing

2021-12-16 19:13 - 0 Comments

What could make waiting for green light at a road crossing more fun? This simple fix will appeal to people´s love of having their photograph taken. If you cross by red light nothing will happen. But if you wait until the little green man turns up you'll have your photo taken as you cross - just like when riding a roller coaster! The snapshots will be displayed on a big screen on a nearby house side - for you to enjoy fifteen seconds of fame!

Above the normal button to push when you are waiting for a trafficlight, there are now 4 (depends) extra buttons. Each button refers to a drivelane in front of you. You can recognize this by the matching colors. When a vehicle drives over your walkinglane the button lights up. When you push the lightend button, you hear a, depending on the vehicle, truckhorn, carhorn or bicycle bel. Under the normal waitinglight you see two more lights with a number written in it. Left being your score, right being the highscore.

Cine Eco

2021-12-15 18:20 - 0 Comments

Little things can make a big difference. So when a group of people join to spare our planet's resources, even if for a brief moment, that makes a huge difference. We spend too much of our planet's energy and so little of ours, that doesn't seem fair. So mix sedentarism and energy consuming, add a bit of fun to it, and we bake a fresh new idea. Just out of the oven: Cine Eco. This ecological wave claims for new ecological ideas. Movies have become one of peoples favorite pastime.

Little effort, Big differences

We want to show people how with a little action they can contribute to a bigger one, and a better world with it. We are using a teddy bear who lost its owner. With a walkie talkie inside the little bear we ask people for a little trip. Six families helped the bear Morrison to get from one side to another of the Retiro park in Madrid, they just needed to walk for some meters, but together it was a considerable distance.

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

There will be 2 small sensors in the recycling bin that will detect rubbish or Movement and once triggered it will activate the speaker which will then say “Thanks.” but then will say an interesting fact like “ You have just saved the average person 10% of work of making a coke can or crisp packet or something the same and that will go far to be used by someone else or you never know it could end up that you drinking out of the same can you have used before”.

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.

Poopmaster

2021-11-18 17:34 - 0 Comments

Poopmaster is intended to give dog owners an incentive to gather the dog poo and throw it away. The idea is that since some dog owners apparently do not care much for scooping up the poop and it often ends up under the sole of peoples shoes, to add something that encourages dog owners to do the right thing. Now they can scoop it up, go to the "recycling machine" and drop off the bag of poo. The machine then weighs the poo, and dependent on the weight the owner is rewarded with some cash they can give for charity to animal shelters.

After every shopping tour, you get a bunch of small coins. The basic idea is to mount a big magnet on a street light or a building, which collects the magnetic 1,2 and 5-cent coins. Once a week the collected money will be removed and donated to a social institution or homeless people. Possible variations of the idea are: - a pair of balanced magnets; every week a new question will be shown where people can vote for one option - a machine that starts a special event once a certain amount of money (=weight) pulls on the magnet.

The Battery Can

2021-12-16 13:58 - 0 Comments

The Problem: Our world is being contaminated by many things. One of them is batteries. Batteries contain heavy metals such as mercury, lead, cadmium, and nickel, which can contaminate the environment when batteries are improperly disposed. Batteries may produce potential problems or hazards like pollute the lakes and streams as the metals vaporize into the air when burned. Also expose the environment and water to lead and acid and more.Solution: I invented “The Battery Can”. This “Battery Can” can be used by adults, but it is much more fun for kids!!

Shining darkness

2021-12-15 14:47 - 0 Comments

People always forget to turn the lights off. We need to do something about it. So we came up with an idea to make the darkness glow. We think you could hire artists to use glow-in-the-dark paint to paint walls of schools and public buildings. That would encourage people to turn off the lights even when they are working in the room. If you use clear glow-in-the-dark paint you would have to turn off the lights to see the pretty pictures. It would save alot of energy.

Have it ever occurred to you, while opening an automatic door by pushing a button, that you are very lazy? Everyday this lazy behavior ends up in thousands of people pushing buttons to open electric doors. Instead we made it funny to open these doors manually. When pushing the door manually, and saving energy, you get a crowd cheering from the loudspeaker installed on top of the door. Afterwards, while leaving the door, you'll feel aroused since the crowd has cheered you up. Perhaps you got some exercise as well. Submitted by Joakim & Tomas.

The Presence of Digital Money

2021-11-30 11:27 - 0 Comments

Credit cards make life so much more easier that you do not have to carry stacks of moneys any more. Every time when you buy something the only thing you use is just a piece of card. But sometimes it also makes consumption unreasonable. People lost the sense of physical money. I created some new concepts of credit cards to remind people that digital money also has the similar physical attribute as the old money. They are not just numbers. You can feel it so that you can try to control your consumption.
