Voice Of Mother Earth - in your home!

2021-12-09 12:43 - 0 Comments

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.

An interesting bike concept that offers a great doze of exercise as well as a funny experience through which you can measure your energetic potential.

The concept is simple: the electricity produced while pedaling is collected and can feed up various electric devices. The scientific application has been around for quite a while now but how many times was it transposed into an application that would also generate fun?

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.

Use an ergometric bike (fitness bike) to generate electric energy for a bus/train/ferry stop. All types of users and public can ride a bike while waiting for public transportation, where the mechanical energy provided by the user is transformed in electric energy and used in the illumination of the bus/train stop at night. The advertising display is also transformed in a video game screen. According to the distances covered by the users, the battery bar in the screen is filled until the “champion” completes the whole bar.

I Transformed an existing climbing frame web into a big Nomad Tent.
Seventeen Kurdish, Turkish and Iraqi youngsters stopped playing football and came to sit in it.
People brought candles and some beer. We had nice chats about the problems in their neighbourhood. At midnight they helped me taking it down.

This way i want to reach a spontaneous moment!

Reactions:
- 'My dad has a restaurant, i'll get you a pizza!'
- Boy on phone: 'Come over here, relaxed sitting in a tent!'
- 'When are you coming again?'

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.

Dancing Lessons

The health habits of the young are getting worse. Instead of getting some physical activity they would rather play computer games or chit-chat in café. However, there is a way to change it. Why not to use the spare time between lectures for entertaining dancing lessons free of charge? All that is needed is TV screen set up somewhere in corridor, DVD with special software, a mirror, and an audio output for headphones (not to increase the level of noise in school). More physical activity equals better health. Submitted by Wojtek Kucz

How to make vacuum cleaning fun?
Everyone loves karaoke, SingStar and other fun singing games.
The Sing'n'Clean gadget for your vacuum cleaner is a game, where you can sing karaoke and score points while you are cleaning. The lyrics display is placed on the "head" of the vacuum cleaner, for you to read and sing them while focusing on cleaning.
A censor is registrating the ammount of dirt you collect and how well you clean the house. Points for cleaning and points for singing are added up, so you get a final Sing'n'Clean score.

2021-11-23 16:34 - 0 Comments

In major cities around the world pedestrians do not respect the red traffic light at road crossings and prefer to run carps, causing delays in traffic and sometimes even personal injury to themselves. Across the zebra crossing on both sides of the road there will be two identical installations comprised of a modified "push button and wait for signal" box. It will have a speaker set and music. When the button is pushed the pavement sticker starts the game. When the traffic light for pedestrians turns red, the music starts and the bubbles light up.

Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Submitted by Simon Scherer.

Cars vs Bikes

2021-12-16 16:03 - 0 Comments

What is the matter? We would like people to realize that biking is also a solution.
But how? It is as easy as a counting machine! The purpose of the machine is to count how many bikers and drivers pass by in a day. The placement would be crucial. It has to stand in between a bicycle path and a street so that people could realize how many cars have passed in comparison with bikes. The trend would be shown on a graphic. Who will act to make it go the “right” way?

Have you ever danced on a street or a park ? Waltz, Tango, 'Singing in the rain' ? Wouldn't it be great if you did ? But that's strange, no one does that. You're no performer, there's no music, there's no audience. But what if there was a really good reason to try ? This foot-step-patterned pavement lights up in an order along with music, inviting any passersby to follow the step by step Tango sequence. You're just learning, so no need to be shy. It's fun to have audience, or just be the audience. If there is nobody around and it's just you and your partner, how romantic !

Waiting for the bus can be very stressful. First: the bus is never on time. Second: some bus stops don't have any place to sit down and wait. Thinking about that and a way to make it more fun, we came up with the idea of a "Tire-Swing Bus Stop".

Take your best guess at the true or false statement and place your hand under your answers side. Motion detector senses it, the side of the correct answer lights up. Right or wrong you get soap on your side and you have probably learned an interesting fact for the day. There is nothing like a little curiosity to quickly get people involved and forming some good habits.

Tired of all the cigarettes on the ground? This simple system is the solution. People will just have to put their cigarette litter in the hole of the "box" and thanks to a proximity sensor, it will display a funny joke on the screen that will make the people happier for the rest of the day, and they will speak about this joke or this concept around them. Thanks to this, more and more people will throw their used cigarettes (or paper) in that box.
In the end, this will save the environment and will contribute to the people happiness. Submitted by Fred Pigeard

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.

This game makes commuting and waiting for trains a fun and stimulating experience. Three huge numbers are painted or pasted on the subway platforms, however not on one surface but several different ones on many levels of depth. The objective of the game is to find the viewpoint from where the color fields makes out a number. Should you stand at the wrong place the fields are incomprehensible. Once you've found the viewpoint where the number is visible you can find a plaque on the floor or closest wall with two small numbers.

I thought of a sequence of thick tiles, made up of four buttons, each of which gets illuminated when a person stops on it. It could be a system of weight sensors.
The whole scheme could also include a turnstile at the end of the path. The rotation of this turnstile should make the colors, illuminating the tiles, change. All these changes could catch the attention of other people coming.

People not picking up their dog poo is a major problem around the world. Cities and towns would be much cleaner if they did, and citizens would be happier. Few solutions have had much of an impact, but maybe that’s because this problem hasn’t been approached in a fun way! What if the dog bags provided in parks and public places came with a flower seed. Dog walkers can then plant these corn starch bio-degradable bags in a public garden, turning each pile of poo into a flower! Here’s a way to put a positive spin on a dirty subject, one that both the dog walker and the public can enjoy!
