Worth the walk

Worth the walk

Everyone wants the best parking spot. Typically, the best spot is closest to the destination (the mall, the park, the school, the gym). This simple idea rewards those drivers who park furthest from the destination. They get protection from sunlight, rain or snow, keeping their car cool and dry. What's more, they get energy from the extra exercise and fresh air they receive walking to their destination. This canopy would span the back parking spaces of the parking lot. It could be used for advertising space for either the destination or for major marketers.

This idea is to promote physical activity while having fun at the same time. The idea is to have a giant etch-a-sketch floor with magnetic slip ons on people feet and they can just draw away with their feet. I would put this somewhere with some traffic like the mall. This would of course be free of charge and I think kids would have so much fun with it, and probably adults too.

Recycling bins

2021-12-16 16:29 - 0 Comments

Recycling bins are often used inappropriately or not used at all. Yes-U-Can is a magnet from all points of view. Its basic design is a very tall inverted translucent bin, where cans fly to the top thanks to a standard low-power electromagnet. Its advantages include:
* People can see their can as it flays over to the top
* Due to its height, the bin is very easy to see even if you are far away
* By catching peoples attention, it collaborates with the amount of garbage collected by the other two standard bins
* It has an increased capacity, only limited by the decided height

The Can Hockey Table

The Can Hockey Table

When we were children we were kicking everything, but mostly we were stepping on empty drink cans to make them flat and play football. The idea is to make a rectangle recycle bin for aluminium cans that on its top you can play "can hockey" (like air hockey without the air). There will be two round controllers for hitting the can, on the side and attached with a wire to the bin. People who sit in parks can play this game with their empty cans instead of leaving them on the ground. Simple and cheap!

If paper recycling can be made more fun, it would probably make more people acknowledge the importance of paper and paper products recycling. At the same time, if The Fun Theory would be combined with The Wining Something Theory, probably even more people would take a steep in this direction. This is all this project is about. Making people understand how much every sheet of paper means, making people recycle it, in a more pleasant way and also giving something back to them or their community.

Admit it: When you put your glass bottles in the recycling bin, you do it with just a little more force than necessary just for the joy of hearing things shatter. The Smashcycler promotes glass recycling while providing that same thrill in a safe environment.

Talking Ashtray

2021-12-16 18:22 - 0 Comments

Solar Powered, Talking Ashtray is designed to get people to use the ashtray instead of throwing their cigarette buts on the ground and keep the environment clean. The solar panel means that it is self contained and maintenance free (it can still be used indoors next to a window). When someone goes to stub their butt out the censor activates the voice recorder that has the following messages: Always the first message says something like: "Tsssss (sound like hot metal being cooled in water) thank you so much for using me".

Problem: People don’t do exercise because they are too lazy or “too tired”. They also say their feet are tired and hurt.

Solution: If people complain they are too tired and use that as an excuse to not exercise, they will have no excuse because this shoe gives you a massage while you are walking, but it has a sensor that feels that you are actually walking, so that if you are not walking it won’t give you a massage.

Transform mechanic energy of human body into electric energy and use that energy to:
1. Benefit on yourself (health/exercise, discounts in green stores..)
2. Benefit to your community (saves energy and use that money to improve the city into a sustainable one)
3. Benefit the planet (less pollution and sustainable cities)

Cycling is hard work especially up hill. Sound posts with PIR sensors could be placed along the side of the road to give audio rewards to cyclists as they struggle through the city streets. A selection of surprising, uplifting and thought provoking music and sounds could be projected at the cyclists as they travel through a mini soundscape making the whole process more fun and attractive. This would encourage more people to cycle instead of drive.

Pedestrian Light

There's nothing better than fun pedestrian crossing!
The new pedestrian crossing light up when the traffic lights go red.
That would benefit both, pedestrians and drivers:
1. the drivers would notice that the traffic light went red when he saw the lines of light lighting up (the lines would only light up when the pedestrian could cross the street)
2. the pedestrians would know when they could cross the street (when the lines light up) and will be encouraged to cross over the pedestrian crossing (the right place to cross the street)

Whenever drivers try to park the car within the borders , a jackpot sound is heard as in a slot machine. A graphic of the slot machine is placed. So people try to park it correctly. With this the parking behavior is changed for better. Submitted of Manoj Manduva

Little boys need some fun. Especially when they go number one. A target for aiming the stream will keep the floor just a bit more clean. I suggest even upping the ante, and have sensors in the target where the longer they can "Keep their aim" the more points they get... Points that can get them some sort of reward.

Simple idea: you get a coin or a bunch of them, insert into the machine that will give you a puzzle piece. On the side it will have a board to complete the puzzle. Just find the one's missing and that's it. The more you donate, the more you'll play. Submitted by Raphael Santos.

Transforming fat into fun and electricity

We know that energy is neither created nor destroyed, only transformed, our project is to give visibility to the burning calorie during work out in a fun and sustainable habit. Using a ergometer bicycle, instead of use a friction belt to cause the calories burning it will be replaced by a dynamo electricity generator.

The Paper Maker Machine

As you may already know, in some countries people don’t see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Paper-Maker Machine that will allow people to recycle paper and obtain a recycled paper notepad in exchange! Feel the magic and let your children believe! The machine is made to look like it fabricates the notepad just right there. How it works? The machine has a weight scale that allow you to learn how paper much you are recycling. Depending on the weight range, the mechanism activates and gives you in exchange one model of notepad.

The Questionable Bus Stop

The idea is to make the boring task of waiting for the bus more enjoyable On the side wall of the bus stop there is an interactive touch screen. The screen broadcasts Trivia questions from a large questions bank. The idea is that the entire crowd within the bus stop can participate and shout answers, and finally select (by touching) the right answer to their knowledge. This is a fun and bonding experience for everyone in the bus stop, and most importantly it passes the time and makes people forget their busy schedule, at least until the bus arrives.

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.
