Combined Individual Transport

2021-12-15 18:03 - 0 Comments

Cities are congested with traffic. The pollution from traffic is high. Parking is scarce and very expensive. What I promote is combined individual transport. People would still use regular cars for longer distances, like from suburbs to near the center. For shorter distances, in parts of towns with dense traffic, or within the center, people would use bikes or tricycles (pedaled or geared by electric motors), which would be foldable, and therefore it would be possible to keep them in the trunk of the car.

Leaves Leaves

The trees make the best patterns with their leaves. And then the kids, longingly, watch them through their car windows as they pass by. They imagine how big a leaf pile that many leaves could make. And the workmen & women, with their face masks and their heavy blowers 'clean up' the walkway and neaten the park with the sharp buuuuzzzzzz in the mourning aire, while the businessperson walks past, smelling the crisp tang of fall and gasoline and fried electric circuits. Blah. No fun.

Car eco-driving game

2021-12-15 17:46 - 0 Comments

It is proven that a driver's mood can influence car fuel consumption by over 20%. So what if we could turn driving into an eco-driving game, making it fun? The idea is to read the instant fuel consumption from the on-board computer with a small processing unit, or in older models, read the accelerator pedal position with a simple and cheap infrared position sensor. A small and discrete LCD/LED screen would be placed on the dashboard where a toy face would appear.

Paper Toilet

2021-12-16 10:47 - 0 Comments

In the city, metro, conventions , It is very common to find magazines, flyers and newspapers mixed in the garbage if not in the floor... when there are the first paper we could easily recycle!!! The PAPER TOILET serves to recuperate in a funny way all these papers by sitting on this special toilet like in a regular one, putting the papers in the middle of the "p" hole, and just flushing.... it's flawless!!!!
- It´s very simple, based in a daily symbol with a strong signification
- The 'P' for paper adapted as a sign in the ergonometric shape of the chair, to be seen from far away

Fun Speeding Feedback

2021-12-15 17:18 - 0 Comments

My idea is to have markings on the road that when seen by the driver of an approaching vehicle appear to change shape at a precise speed. For instance a car approaching markings positioned at a 20mph speed limit at 20mph +/- 2mph, instead of seeing a random set of dots and lines would see a smiling face or other appropriate graphics. The fun element of this is that the graphic would be different not only for different speed limits but also for different locations so there would always be an incentive to drive within the limit to see which graphic would appear.

Interactive Tree Heaven - paper saver

Photocopiers are a point of high paper usage - and wastage. Most machines today offer double sided and reduced print but people do not use these facilities. Why?
1) its a little bit technically difficult (not a lot)
2)This takes time (which we think adds pressure)
3) there is no immediate financial cost to us (assuming the company pays)
4) there is no incentive

So... Lets design a USB add in monitor that shows "TREE HEAVEN"

Robot teapots

2021-12-16 14:12 - 0 Comments

The problem is that the mother’s that work a lot when they come from work they are so tired that they don’t have time to care there babies. The solution is that there could be a robot that can have teapots heater, also a pillow and their other hand is a blanket, also they know songs and bedtime stories. It could also have a television so that the child sees it. And it could also dance and have the same temperature as a human body. It could change the behavior of people that mother’s don’t get tired a lot. It could cost $500.00 dollars.

The Re:ramid of Chops

A long tube built into a slider leading from a side easy insertion level to a point just over cone leading to the base centre. At top in interior is a mangle crusher feeding into and old paper shredder. You 'load' PEP bottles into the tube. You then slide it upright (using screwed in 330ml bottle handles) to drop into the cone. This action activates the blade, only once the tube is well out of reach. The shredder drops the shards into a cone-shaped pile.

Fast Puzzles: The Recycled Fast Food Container

The problem is ...when we go to fast food or any restaurant where the food is consume in containers of plastic or paper we produce lots or garbage that can be recycled but nowadays is just throw in litter bins without care if this is paper or plastic o organic garbage... and is boring to just throw it :( The proposed prototype is a funny recycling litter bin where you can throw your garbage but clasifiying it. The funny dump has a touch screen and when you recycle the screen show you a different puzzle that you can arm in few seconds depending of the puzzle.

Ride your bike more

2021-12-15 14:56 - 0 Comments

People can be encouraged to do tough, good things by giving them appreciation for it. It's winter, cold, rainy and hard to get up in the morning. Even worse to get on a bike and start pedalling. Even though it's great exercise and an easy way of improving the environment. The solution to this problem is a private fan club that cheers you on when the obstacle seems to big. This could be done by installing sensors and speakers with cheering sounds along cycle paths. You will feel as if the wind was blowing in your back and like it's downhill all the time.

Relax Driving Game

On the cities huge traffic jam is very common, drivers have to wait long periods of time on their cars without being able to move, this causes a lot of stress that isn't healthy for the driver and the passengers. In fact is a period of time that they must wait, but what if we could change this situation, what if we could find a solution to this problem that affects people all over the world, people that have to face this problem on a daily basis.
What if they can move forward in spite of the cars, what if they can do it virtually, maybe playing a driving game!

Wash Hands with Soap Game

2021-12-15 15:57 - 0 Comments

Objective: To get more people to use soap when washing their hands after using the restroom.
A recent article in USA Today reported that when people wash their hands after using the restroom, only 33% use soap and only 16% adequately wash. The average hand-washing time was a pathetic 11 seconds.
So we need a fun way to motivate people to wash their hands adequately using soap.

Newpairment day

2021-12-16 16:55 - 0 Comments

Once every year, for example November 1st, children and grown-ups together gather up in communities in order to repair and create new stuff out of old, unused stuff . This day could be celebrated all over the world, so that people can drop in and meet new people, discussing ideas, swopping, making, and developing old boring stuff to fit new needs. Pair up together with someone you don't know well, young or old, start inventing and write down ideas that make the world better.

Traffic Light Movie

2021-12-16 10:09 - 0 Comments

Many cities, especially crowded ones, are having a problem - the crossing of the streets on not allowed zones, or while the pedestrian traffic light is red, that way creating dangerous situations for themselves and other participants in traffic. One of the solution would be - the entertainment. While waiting at the traffic light, the pedestrians could entertain themselves watching a short movie on special designated mini displays installed on the traffic light itself. The variety of the movies should be vast, and it should be achieved by creating a lot of movies.

Archie's Magic RE:ounderbutt Augur's Well

2021-12-03 12:14 - 0 Comments

Essentially a kids’ playground roundabout, with a large Archimedes screw within. A mixture of a mincer and the idea behind the African water pump concept. Using the energy of turning the roundabout (geared down if necessary) the lightweight, highly compressible materials are packed ever more tightly. Possible enhancements could include a facility to extract the end result in bales, thus enabling a never-ending constant feed process.

Eco-Fountain

2021-12-15 17:35 - 0 Comments

The problem: public water fountains are used less because many people buy bottled water under the impression that it is better, when in fact bottled water often comes from the same source as tap water. The difference is, bottled water has lower safety standards, is harmful to the environment, and costs up to 1,900 more per liter. What if drinking from water fountains was fun and educational?

Dancing on Plastic Materials

2021-11-20 10:04 - 0 Comments

I tried to find a way how to remind to people that recycling of plastic materials could be even funny. I selected the environment of business mall. The most of products with plastic packing you can buy right there. When you approach the cash desk there are some coloured areas in special shape on the floor (PET bottle for example - you can easily create another one). When you step on the first part of the "PET bottle", to remind the need to recycle - the part of shape will change colour from violet to GREEN and will make a sound like you really step on the PET bottle by recycling.
