Shopping cart display

2021-12-15 21:15 - 0 Comments

Make shopping fun. Download from your smart mobile phone the shopping list into a display attached to your shopping cart. This will drive you through the store like a navigation system. Each time you pick up an article, this will be scanned by the display so it knows when you have completed your list. You also save time, don't need to get in line again, just pay and leave. You can choose from different movie themes so that your mission (shopping list) is like in the movies (finding treasures, rescuing people, saving the world). Submitted by Diego Santos.

Pedrestian Bridge Arcade

Pedestrian Bridges are there to help us cross the road in a safe way, but most people ignore them. By making a little change we can make more people use them, reducing accidents in that way and also the people doing so will get more exercise! Using a modification of an arcade game will change their behavior for the better.

Fun Fountain

On average, one person uses 166 disposable plastic water bottles each year. The consumption of disposable plastic bottles places enormous strain on our environment and only 90% of these water bottles are recycled. Chemicals in disposable plastic bottles are also toxic to human health but many people are hesitant to use drinking fountains because they are uncertain of the water quality. However, in a number of countries across Europe and the US, there are more regulations governing the quality of tap water than bottled water.

The Recycling Game Machine

2021-12-15 17:01 - 0 Comments

This is my solution for the littering problem. It's a recycling game machine that will educate the youth (or the adults) by teaching them that recycling is fun! This machine is a portable big hockey table that has a mechanism to transform cans into pucks and also a car jack to lift the one side of the floor in order to unload the cans when the container is full. The game can be played with two players. Each player holds a rounder and tries to score by hitting the puck.

This happens to many people day in day out. You take the dog for a quick walk, and then the inevitable happens. The dog needs a poo. You have to bend down near all the smells, and pick it up with a glove etc. But knowone wants to touch it, its revolting and there is easier ways. I have come up with an idea that allows you to NOT bend down near the smells to pick it up. It also allows you to NOT to physically touch it. But what it does allow you to do is have FUN, yes thats right, have FUN.

Funtastic Toilet Time

2021-12-07 15:51 - 0 Comments

Public washrooms are not generally places known for being pleasant or hygienic. Part of the problem is people neglecting to flush the toilet after they have finished their business. This device will encourage toilet flushing with prompts and a prize (of the non-tangible variety). When a person enters the stall, a screen above the toilet will pose a question. These can range from riddles to true or false questions. The answer to the question will only appear once the toilet has been flushed (triggered by a cord, attached to the device).

As the world has modernized we have become over reliant on automobiles. Our consumption of fossil fuels have increased to devastating levels, causing the environment to shift to previously unvisited occurrences . With this change, we must find a way to reduce automobile traffic. By creating a fun walking commute, the world could be encouraged to walk rather than drive. The solution: the bounce path. This creation would create a fun way to travel rather than driving, thus reducing fossil fuel consumption and improving the environments health.

Ride down the road of the future with wind technology created by your passing cars. A channel of small wind turbines keep turning by the force of wind created as vehicles pass. Road light and signs electrical usage is generated from the wind power while mileage counters show you how much energy was created and how much energy was saved on an hourly basis. A great conversation piece that can only lead to a GREENER way of life.

Parking meter - Mr and Mrs Depressed

2021-12-15 23:17 - 0 Comments

Every object in our surrounding have an emotional connection to us (both good and bad feeling), especially the objects that are commonly seen on the street that people interact with everyday. People hate parking meters, which cause them to lose money. Since, I believe everyone should enjoy their lives, despite the bad things. Therefore, I choose to re-design the physical aspect of the parking meter so that people would have fun when using them. As a result, the parking meter is re-designed with the same function but offer a different value to the user.

Musical Rake

How about a rake that plays music only when you are raking leaves or other debris. It can play at various tempos and beats depending on how hard or fast the rake is being pulled against the ground. It could have many different setting, so that you can make multiple musical notes. A great way to get exercise while doing yardwork at the sametime in a fun way.

This way people instead of just sitting down and getting fat or sleeping, they can make sports, generate eletricity for the train, and of course have lots of fun. You can even get a discount ticket for the subway when you have generated enough eletricity watts. Submitted by Diego Santos.

The Giga Machine Gum

Nobody's waiting to find a bin to throw an old gum, it's easier to throw it in the street, anywhere in the street.
It's amazing the number of old chewing gums that is stuck on the ground, a billion of small colored spots living on the pavement. When the gum is quite new, it follow you home and stick everywhere to finally make a mess.

Dispose a plexiglass box in a park or in a street where pedestrians are passing by.

Bicycle bonus

2021-12-16 14:02 - 0 Comments

The problem is that people use cars instead of bicycles while they pollute the air and they do not do exercise.
Solution:
My solution that every four months you use a bicycle instead of a car and you prove that you see it more than two times a day, let say for example your bicycle is a Chevrolet the company will need to give you a three hundred bonus card so you can spend them on any store you like. That would encourage people to use bicycles instead of cars because they know they are going to get a bonus card, which will really encourage me.

Cigarette Bin

2021-11-23 16:58 - 0 Comments
My purpose is to find a fun theory to convince Smokers to throw their cigarettes not on the floor but in a bin. My idea is to paint of yellow and white a normal dust bin with ashtray so that it looks like a cigarette. The message should be clear: this looks like a cigarette and it is for cigarettes. On top of the dust bin, where the ashtray is I would put a cover with sensors that react to heat and pressure underneath. When the sensors react a recorder inside the dust bin will play the sound of a person screaming with pain for the burn.

On the way home from work at least one local supermarket shopping trolley (Shopping cart) has made its way up the street and onto the front lawn of our local housing project. Invariably the cart will sit there for a week and attract other carts until the local council has to collect and return them at a cost. Some times they’re so badly damaged they just get thrown away. Large shopping centers can generate up to 200 missing shopping trolleys a day and one Australian business that tracks and returns shopping trolleys receives on average 1000 phone calls a week from the public.

Throwing spent batteries in the trash is harmful to our environment. There are some states in the US that even have rules to prevent their improper disposal. To promote the correct disposal of these batteries, a fun way would be to create a container that can answer a question, like a Magic 8 Ball. You put your battery and it is thrown to the container, being shaked and moved by its internal devices, so that at the end it falls into one of the possible answers. Submitted by Iris.

Shower Coach

2021-12-16 18:41 - 0 Comments

The behavior I would like to change is spending too much time in the shower. The solution would be a smart shower system that initiates the 'shower routine" when you turn on the water. It indicates what part of the body to wash similar to a gym program. You can choose from various voices and style to fit your perfect trainer image. When you complete to current "exercise" you say "done" and the coach moves to the next one. You get a score depending on the water volume used, and a round of applause each time your get a big score!

Recycling is getting more and more wide-spread. We will have learnt already how things are possible to be reused, how they should be sorted and where they should be put. However, more attention should still be paid to the recycling of batteries. We all use appliances for which batteries are needed. But when the batteries run down, what do we do with them? Sometimes we take them and throw them away in a box or a bin somewhere in an electric appliance shop. Why not playing a bit when throwing them away, though? All of us have once played Tetris, so why not playing it with run down batteries?
