Batterize

2021-12-16 16:11 - 0 Comments

This is a fun way to encourage people to recycle their batteries rather than throw them in the garbage. It is a pinball machine called BATTERIZE. Instead of using money and a pinball you put a used battery into BATTERIZE and play the game with the battery. You gain points by hitting targets that are photographs of electronics which use batteries. The goal is to fully charge your 'game' battery...and you have a helping and encouraging hand from the narrator who tells you what's going on. The end result? It's a fun way to collect used batteries and dispose of them correctly.

What’s funny about buying at the authomatic machines? Absolutely nothing, and if we’re talking about buying condoms it could become even embarassing.
What if the authomatic machine becomes a win-only slot machine, which gives you a funny forecast of the use of the winning?

We think that kind of object can change the way of thinking about the condoms subject and will remind the importance of having safe sex.

Virtual Ball

People are often standing still during the day, waiting. We wait in the supermarket queue, at the bus stop and in the metro. Facing utter boredom, wouldn't it be great if we could "have a ball"? Virtual Ball helps people to do some exercise by offering an interactive mirror that augments the user's environment with virtual balls. There are no rules, just simple balls that create endless possibilities for play!

Playing Moving

2021-12-15 21:01 - 0 Comments

Playing moving is moving because it's fun, not because you have to. Playing moving are tasks/activities you can preform during your daily routine. While being at home, outside or at work. The tasks are very simple and don't cost you a lot of extra time. For example: You need to post a letter, post your letter this time by bike instead of using the car and if you already do that, next time take a postbox which is a little further. Are you in a traffic jam, do some car exercise and so on.

The negative mood of the great majority of people that can result on further violence or isolation. To make people realize that they have enough reasons to be happy, they just need a detonator to speak out and share them.

These days all the people is seeking to be famous, to be broadcasted, express themselves; this “Happy Booth”, located in any public space, is a nice way to do this.

Airport International Lingo

Most airports provide an automatic walkway for people to either rest as they head towards their gate or get there a bit quicker when walking. Unfortunately, these too require the use of much electricity by keeping them running all day, every day. As someone who is interested in other languages myself, I believe that there are many people out there who are as well and would take the no-walkway route to hear some phrases in different languages.

Problem
The use of the bicycle as a daily transport system is not a new idea. Everybody knows the health and environmental benefits of riding a bicycle. But several constrains, such as weather uncertainty, urban street morphology, traffic hazards, and even laziness, all have a significant impact in the – limited – use of the bicycle in urban areas.

The mobility of people around the world is unimaginable nowadays. People manage to travel across countries and continents within hours with lowest rates ever. Does this bring only benefits? Not really - as it was recently shown by the spread speed of the swine-flu disease. One of the methods to fight similar illnesses is to wear a flu-fighting mask. However, opinion polls show that only 5% use this protection method, while more than 36% think that people wearing these masks look like hypochondriacs.

Driver don’t want to spend any money to park a car. Therefore, the ticket machine is redesigned into a poker- ticket machine, in order to change the drivers´ attitude of using it. Drivers´ who parks a car has a chance to win extra parking time for free. Since the primary parking fee is charged to park and play the poker -ticket machine, the driver is not losing anything at all.

My proposal for the problem of abandoned and broken glass in public places of meeting is inspired to Bruno Munari's projected painting and at the same time to a popular game of our childhood: the kaleidoscope. So, throwing the glass bottles in a special container made of a "glass crusher" and of a suitable projector, we can create several compositions subsequently. A downright "open work" in continuous transformation thanks especially to the people - often young people - that won't be anymore "only" responsible citizens not polluting, but also active part and creators of pictorial works.

GPS with Personality

Everybody knows this: A destination and navigationsystem. After a few minutes the navi bothers everybody, always the same instructions from the same voice in a boring tonality. This combination has an ominous impact, the driver gets bored or nervous and looses the concentration. Here comes the funny idea: A navi which acts like a human being. It gives you positive feedback for choosing the right way ("Well done!") and also wiggings for the wrong way if you like ;-) You can choose the personality of your navi. So the driver gets a good feeling and the journey becomes a pleasure!

Playing in the public is often limited to the kids in a family outing to the shopping centres. Parents have little chance to participate in the games that their children are involved in. We ask: How can we create better parent -child interactions in play? The answer proposed: The Bubble Board. Taking advantage of the height of a parent, he or she can create trails of bubbles on an interactive wall as the parent walks or moves pass it.As the parent creates bubbles, the children get to play with these bubbles on the wall, bursting or moulding them by hand.

Windcar

It's simple, you add a windmill to the top of the car. Which is connected to the motor and to the battery. All you have to do is is start up the car like normal with fuel, then once you get going, the windmill spins and provides energy for the motor. The battery of the car can charge up and last the car for 10-20 minutes without the windmill spinning, so you can keep power at stoplights etc. The windmill car isn't about not using fuel for cars. It's about using less fuel (only for start-up and back-up energy).

Nobody likes speed limits, but if we make it fun, drivers will try to do not overcome the limit. HOW?

There are radars on the street showing you actual speed you are driving. Your speed will be memorized and compared with other speeds memorized before you. All this information will be ranked from the one most closest to speed limit down to slowest one. If you overcome the limit you are disqualified. But if your speed is closest to the max. allowed speed your ranking will be displayed on the screen over the street.
Example:
speed limit 50km/h
there are cars before you driving the speed:

Smoking is a common problem in most of corporations. Certain people can't quit smoking just because they need both, a break from work and an opportunity to informally communicate with colleagues. This can be matched with quitting smoking. Here's the situation: a person goes to have a cigarette with his colleague to a smoking place. There, he sees a foosball table, which takes cigarettes as a payment.

The Trash target is to prevent people to throw away their trash on the streets. When people want to throw away their garbage they can aim and throw. Different melodies will play depending where the person hits. If a person hit the middle besides playing the winning melody the lights will blink.

People tend to pass doormats in public entrances without actively cleaning their shoes. This is a problem, especially in winter, since the shoes are more dirty during the rainy season.

We developed a doormat that increases the time, spent cleaning your shoes and intensifies the contact between the mat´s surface and the sole. But how? By transforming the doormat into a fun sliding puzzle.

The time spent on the doormat increased significantly and people started to interact. The Fun Theory was verified.

What you do while waiting for the green light? Some people talk on the phone, others clean the nose, but all are throwing energy away! What do you think of exercise as it generates energy for a traffic light? In large cities, some crosses accumulate hundreds of people, for 2 or 3 minutes. Urban Treadmill on sidewalks generate electricity for street furniture. Concentrate people and make the time pass more efficiently and to encourage people to cross the street in the correct location. Burn fat and produce energy. Fun!
