My idea for the project The Fun Theory is to solve the problem of cigarettes consumed and thrown away in parks (causing fires) or in the streets (increasing environmental pollution). I thought to encourage use of outdoor ashtray insert the typical sound of crackling wood that attracts attention and also an hologram on the surface of the ashtray. Depositing the cigarette the hologram reproduces the fire by creating fun and wonder. Submitted by Alessandra Pace.

Magic Footbridge

2021-12-16 16:08 - 0 Comments

A common problem on the highways is that lots of pedestrian cross the road among cars instead of using the footbridge. This behavior can result in accidents and running over. Would be possible to increase the number of people using the footbridge and to decrease the number of people that across among the cars by making the footbridge cross something funny? This is the objective of the “Magic Footbridge”.

"Good Deed" Currency

2021-12-15 23:09 - 0 Comments

In today’s world services are measured in terms of money (currency)
But what about ‘good deeds’ done by people with no expectation of any monetary benefit but at some time the deed has value attached to it.You don’t expect money when you go out of your way to help an old man cross the road.
We will introduce a new global currency “Good deed” Currency. It will be printed solely by the sponsor company in the denominations of 5,10,20,50,100,500 & 1000.
They will be introduced among the public for distribution and circulation initially through NGO’s, charities, old age homes etc.

Germ Wash

2021-12-16 18:03 - 0 Comments

We are not so enthusiastic to wash our hands before eating or after using toilets. Whereas, we intake thousands of germs everyday through these hands. Therefore, this initiative is to make hand washing FUN. If we some how can see all the germs strolling in our hand then we will certainly paying attention to wash our hands. Because, we believe more what we see. My idea is to install a special kind of hand basin in schools, hospitals and restaurants.

The Red Light Player

2021-12-15 21:10 - 0 Comments

Waiting for the red man to change on the traffic light, while necessary for maintaining your life, is a bummer. Our aim was making the wait pleasurable. We did it by posting a highly competent street musician in one side of a heavily traveled zebra crossing. Our guy plays when the light is red, and rests when it turns green. For our special operation we made double bass covers for famous songs containing words like "stop", "stand", etc.

A Good Life is to be Fun!

There are symbols to almost everything: gay community, luck, breast cancer, aids and more. So, why not a icon to represent the Fun Theory? An icon to be seen everywhere, all the time: in T-shirts, sticks, stamps, magazines, outdoors, pins, signs, the moon!!! Something universal, clean, strong, inspiring, to really make a statement. Like the smilie face, but in royal blue. It is positive reinforcement linked to other subjects such as driving, eating, the environment, people, love, health or safety. The idea has been out there for years, but there is a need for a concrete message.

Kaleidoscope Hand Dryer

How to make people dry their hands using the hand dryer instead of paper towels? When someone move his/her hands above the hand dryer it turns on and at the same time the kaleidoscope. The person will see the kaleidoscope moving only when the hand dryer is turned on. Different kaleidoscopes should be installed in different places thus people will be interested every time they need to dry their hands.

Weepy fridge

2021-12-16 11:21 - 0 Comments

What if our food would be equipped with a special timer&player, something we should just start when we put our fresh products in the fridge. When the expiration date is approaching and we are not eating or drinking our food, the food itself will start whining and crying to warn us.
We would need nothing more than an adhesive plate or patch equipped with timer&player. The player will start crying and complaining louder and louder as the expiration date approaches. How stopping it? Drink your fresh food! The plate can be re-used on different food packaging for a loooooong time.

Fun Healthy Waiting

What do you while you are waiting for a bus or in metro?
What do you think about moving your body and engaging in group activities?
A healthy mind is in a healthy body .. with so much around us we spare less time to work out and do not move our bodies a lot. On the other hand, with all those calculators , we are not using our minds to make those simple calculations ..
So let's make good use of the time and make the waiting fun , and turn calculations into a semi-dancing activity:

Could this nuisance be removed by making the activity fun to do? We think so.

Currently most sustainabile responses are focused on land where we can monitor the proposed changes, while the water which covers 70% of our Earth’s surface tends to be neglected. Since the phytoplankton growing within the oceans provides 50% of Earth’s photosynthesis, ocean vitality is paramount for all life. Already we have lost 30% and 14% of phytoplankton in the North Pacific and North Atlantic Oceans respectively since the 80s. Specifically, we must counteract the damaging effects of excess carbon dioxide and acidification from our polluting habits.

Dance for Healthy Snacks

2021-12-16 19:13 - 0 Comments

Encourage the choice of nutritional snacks. We are inundated with vending machines peddling unhealthy snacks. We propose to place a "Dance for Healthy Snacks" vending machine adjacent to a normal "candies and chips" vending machine. In both cases persons would pay a flat fee (e.g. 50 cents) for a snack item. The difference is that the "Dance for Healthy Snacks" requires the snack selection to be done via a dancing game. Rather than selecting a snack by pushing a button ("G2"), you have to dance on the footpad -- following the onscreen queues -- to successfully select the snack item.

Can you get humans to eat healthier food through fun?
It’s always more fun to open colorful packages with loud writing, cool logos and slogans. How can a piece of fruit in the super market ever compete with a candy bar? It can’t! SO….
Imagine lush and colorful shrink-wrappers over bananas, apples and mandarin oranges. Put them right next to the candies, which in the USA are typically in the checkout line to entice last minute impulse buys by children. Guilt and fun I believe will

The Healthy Snack Game

2022-10-27 13:41 - 0 Comments
Can we get more people to pick up a healthy snack at work by making it fun to do? This idea is based on the classic fairground game, where the user has to steer a crane with a hug claw to pick up the best prize possible. There could also be a high score board where the whole office can see who is best at doing to something healthy. If this was put out in a public place then winners could also win vouchers to healthy restaurants too. Submitted by Chris Thompson

Remember the little flipbooks you had when you were a kid? The kind you could flip through quickly and see a little movie, This might be the simplest way of animating a picture but a filmreel doesn't act all that different. Think of all the boring hours you have spent looking out of the window into nothingness while commuting on the Metro train or underground. Now, I am a big fan of grafitti and street art, but it doesn't really serve its purpose in 60 km/h when everything turns into a blur. What if we could use the speed of the train to emulate a lens travelling down a filmreel?

The TV screen will show short clips as long as there is red light.
Clips like funny stuff from youtube, parts from favorite tv shows etc.

That way people will enjoy standing in the red light rather then being bored and pissed at it (thus, walking while it's on).

In this project two Daily urban experiences are joined together in this case a pedestrian and a car driver, drivers waiting on a red light and the monotonous crossing for the zebra from part of the pedestrians, are clearly two situations that we all have experienced. For this reason we have decided to develop a dynamic in which the driver entertains himself during the red light while the pedestrians enjoy and respect the pedestrian crossing zone.
