Stub Painting

Problem tackled: Reducing the cigarette litter in front of public places.

Solution: Make it fun to stub out a cigarette in an ashtray. On the tray is mounted a video screen equiped with some kind of heat sensing. The cigarette butt is used on the screen as a paint brush. The color of the "trait" depends on the heat sensed. The color degrades in time creating a dynamic painting that evolves continuously.

Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Submitted by Gilles Bonifait.

Queuing can be fun too!

The idea is to print funny quotes, jokes, or any other funny message on a floor sticker and then apply it where people stand to form a queue (i.e. in front of money tills, ATMs, airport check-in desks, etc). Benefits: - People will have something funny and enjoyable to spend their time with, while waiting in a queue (queuing will become less boring). - People reading these messages will become more relaxed and less frustrated, hence will smile more.

Grumpy Subway

People are sad and grumpy in the subway. There's probably no real reason to be so other than being tired or tired of waiting for the subway. However, you can be less grumpy or even smile if there is something to provoke it!

So, do you know the mirror reflection on the opposite window when you sit in the metro? That could be made into something that can light you up in a second:
- distorting mirrors: admit it, they are addicting!
- drawn figures with a mirror where your face is. A giant bug is so cute if the mirrored person has a beard!

Dance Mat Water Fountain

2021-11-19 14:55 - 0 Comments

My idea for an invention is a huge interactive dance mat located at a park. The massive dance mat would play music for people to dance to and as you danced or stepped on the mat, it would active large water fountains that would squirt up water. Obviously the only way for the fountains to work would be if someone stepped or danced on the mat. People would also have access to the fountains and be able to walk or run through the fountains for fun.

Meet Phil.
Phil needs to be fed, and chewing gum is his favourite food. It’s your job to feed him.
The gum (and other small trash items) go into Phil's head.
After 20 pieces of trash have passed the motion sensor, Phil's begins his performance:
he chews, he laughs, he thanks you for your gum, and he generally just has a joyous time thanks to your trash-feeding efforts.

The Friendly Toilet

2021-11-24 15:53 - 0 Comments

One of the greatest problems in a house is the toilet. Men tend to leave the toilet seat up, and some don't even bother to take it up, with hygenic consequences. This toilet seat talks to the man, when he takes it up it shows interest in what he is doing ( "how was your day?" "have to go again?") and when the seat goes down again, the seat gives a compliment ("that was a good one" "you are really amazing") .
The exact messages depend upon the users. Some would probably like some more daring messages while others would be offended by them, and probably prefer more gallant messages.

Machines to recycle

2021-12-16 13:53 - 0 Comments

The problem is that people don’t take time to recycle. The solution will be that we found a way to recycle and at the same time have fun. If you want to have fun and at the same time recycle plastic, cans, paper, glass, carton and used batteries you can go to the Machines to Recycle. Instead of using coins and wasting your money you can bring recycle things and you will play with machines. Each machine has different things, for example one will be of cans, you will give cans and then you can play.

Learn with comics!

2021-12-16 18:59 - 0 Comments

I remember myself strugling to learn things that I found terribly uninteresting at the time. 15 years later and the same thing happens to the new students. I have a solution for this. Just transform the chapter of your book into a comic right after the lecture! If the teacher is good in drawing can he/she draws the comic on the whiteboard! The students will be delighted to learn history or any other subject that way, is there any greater plot than real history? They can add colours in special events or make a whole book of comics! Anything is possible when you have fun!

An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. The crane in Japan is one of the mystical or holy creatures (others include the dragon and the tortoise), and is said to live for a thousand years. In Asia, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person's wish come true. This makes them popular gifts for special friends and family.

Install bikes on the trams/trains/busses where the wheel power is connected to add power to the vehicle. Having multiple bikes installed means that friends can compete to add the most energy back to the vehicle within a certain distance or between stops. Added value, you can take a bit off the price of their ticket because the tram/train/bus company is saving cost on fuel!

The Smile Machine

Keeping a happy outlook towards each other is hard in these stressful times. We propose to create a magic mirror to reflect and enhance people’s daily expressions. Our invention is a digital camera with smile detection software, linked to a projector behind a mirror. The display will show the visitor walking by, just like any mirror. But if the visitor stops and looks, a red smile line will be drawn on his or her image, reminding them that it’s up to everyone to inspire each other with fun and good cheer!
