The Monster Recycler

A more fun way to recycle your newspaper!

Many people around the world appreciate to read free newspapers when they travel with the subway. The problem is that too many people don’t recycle their newspaper when they’ve read it. This is damaging the environment and costs lots of money to clean – Money that raises ticket prices.
Can we get people to change their behaviour by making it more fun to recycle their newspapers?

Public Water

2021-12-16 09:30 - 0 Comments

The Solution & Design Concept
The redesigned public waterspout is free filtered tap water and easy to use. The spout is covered so there is no way one can touch the area where the water is dispensed to prevent the chance of contamination. To cut out even more germs, there is a “say when” mechanism that releases the water. Inside of the aqueduct inspired design is a filtering system connected to standard tap water pipes. The filtering system will be changed routinely by local state employees to guarentee freshness and quality.

Your kid got tired of that old toy and keep asking you to buy something different. To encourage them to exchange the old for a different one, just take them to the Magic BoXchange and they will learn that an old thing can be recycled. All they have to do is to insert the old toy inside the box, wait a little bit, and surprise: a different toy will show up on the other side of the machine. You can choose between boys and girls toys', and if they are not satisfied they can keep on exchanging it. Submitted by Silvia Noronha.

Morsel Machine

2021-11-23 15:17 - 0 Comments

We are supposed to collect the dogs excrements in the park. We should collect them all into the little bag and then throw the bag into the bin. What if there would be a special machine by the dogs bin, giving the morsel to the dog every time we bring the "delivery"? After some time maybe the dogs will get used to it and will push us to pick up the "treasure".

1. We will do something good for our health when we go for a walk
2. Our dog will be happy to receive a morsel and it will motivate us to collect of dog excrement
3. Our parks will stay clean

Lock your seatbelt and win a prize!!! It results very negative and boring for the common citizen being obligued by the law to wear the seatbelt when driving their cars, but what if wearing the seatbelt becomes a fun thing to do? With this program every time you wear a seatbelt, the click system counts it, and when you get to a determined number, suprise!!! The counter sounds like a jackpot and you get a text from your insurance company telling you that you have an special gift waiting at the service station.

Sliding Staircase

Every city has at least a slope. Why don't take advantage of the landscape to minimize the use of cars in the city and improve people health? By adding slides, it could be possible to change people's behaviors and the way they move in the city. Depending on the location of the slides, it could be a time saver for people living in hilly cities such as San Fransisco, Lausanne, Quebec, Rio de Janeiro just to name a few. The Sliding Staircase could change the rythm of simply doing the task of walking. It could split it by bringing short periods of fun through a transportation routine.

Have you ever noticed how slippery the floors in public buildings get when it rains? No one really takes the time to dry their shoes. Our Interactive Rain Mat changes that by making the boring activity of drying your feet into a fun game. As you step on the mat, a little face appears beneath your feet and challenges you to step on it. Whenever you put your foot down, the face moves to another spot on the mat, accompanied by sound effects.

Shopping List Bag

2021-12-16 09:00 - 0 Comments

The problem to be solved: people always getting new plastic bags, thus creating more waste.
The solution: The main reason why you have to get a bag at the store is because you didn’t think of bringing one before. If you write your shopping list on a bag (with a magna doodle’ish device), you’re more likely to take it with you when you go shopping.

Happy Waiting

I'm waiting in line and getting bored with nothing to do and I don't dare to small talk to the people around me. The line is very long at the postoffice/ bank/ waitingroom/ hospital/ busstop ... and the clock is ticking very slowly. Waiting on my turn seems to take forever.

I - and all the people around me - like to take pictures with their cellphones on holidays, special occasions or just for no special reason. We can upload these to a local network connected to a video-projector that is showing the pictures very big on the wall.

Video Hand Washing

2021-11-19 14:34 - 0 Comments

Since it is time of the major flu outbreak, hand washing has become such an important daily habit. Not only is it important to just wash your hands, but to wash them longer than 30 seconds which many fail to do. In light to this, it would be great if the mirror in front of us started to move and alter our physical features as soon as we turn on the tap. When pressing to get soap for it turns to colors so that we can see our selves in black and white as well as inverted colors etc. As soon as the tap is turned off the mirror would go back to normal.

BAD BEHAVIOR: Adults or children who leave their clothes lying around the floor or bathroom. HOW TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR IN A FUN AND ENTERTAINING WAY: Design and place a device on top of the clothes basket. This device will register clothing as it goes through the "hoop" similar to basketball. The more clothing that goes into the hoop the more points a family member receives. A biometric reader could be installed to recoginize the particular family member using the device and an electric eye could be used to score more points based on the distance of the shooter.

Humor Toilet Seat

2021-12-15 21:57 - 0 Comments

There is an obvious trend in public restrooms around the world: clean bathrooms stay clean, and dirty bathrooms get dirtier. Imagine throwing a paper towel and missing the wastebasket. How likely are you to pick up the towel if the bathroom floor is filthy? Let’s apply the same logic to a public toilet stall. How likely are men to lift the seat – to avoid dripping during a standing #1 – if the seat is already wet? Not very likely. So the question becomes: How do we get men to lift the toilet seat, consistently? The answer should be obvious: By making it fun!

Bicycle Path Race Circuit

2021-12-16 19:23 - 0 Comments

People that use bicycle for transportation don't always use the paths ment for them to circulate. Making it fun to use it not only will prevent accidents to people that already use bicycles for transportation but it will encourage people who don't to start using it. We can make it fun by putting obstacles like it was a race circuit, like bumps, zig-zag curves, tiny ramps. Going further we could even have leds that will lit when you pass over them like videogame's turbos. The path could be painted with paint that glow in the dark, so i'll be funner by night.

Mint Me - Book Return

2021-11-02 16:57 - 0 Comments

The idea is simple: When you return a book to the library you get a sweet mint. It’s a fun pat on the back for reading a book and returning it. Children would be enthused by a little gesture like this and it would encourage them to read more. Adults would enjoy a smile and a chuckle. The actual machine would just be a dispenser attached to the book return slot. When a book is returned a button is triggered and lights up for 5 seconds - You can then press the button and it dispenses a sweet mint.

Daphne, the funny Waste Paper Bin will help us!
When we think about recycling, waste paper recycling is perhaps one of the first areas that springs to mind as many of us have been doing this for many years.
Waste paper recycling covers a wide variety of different types of paper. We can recycle newspapers, magazines, junk mail, office paper, holiday brochures, catalogues and white directories (e.g. phone books).
Can we get more people to throw waste paper into the funny bin?

Bubbling Traffic Lights

2021-11-30 15:16 - 0 Comments

Usually people are always impatient and in a hurry. When they have to wait for the traffic lights to change in the corner,.. well at times they don't do it at all, and if there are no cars nearby, they cross the street, sometimes not even trough the crosswalk. Also cars sometimes don't stop before the crosswalk, blocking the way to people. So the idea is to make the pedestrians wait for the traffic light to turn to red, to make them walk over the crosswalk, and to encourage cars to not stop over the crosswalk.

Appie Doggie Bin

2021-11-17 11:51 - 0 Comments
Dog poo is a serious threat to mankind and the solution to solving the problem could be found within the dog. If we introduce a dog's doings-bin that offers the dog a cookie every time his owner drops the doings in it, the dog will learn very fast that he gets a cookie after he did what he had to do. He will pull his owner to the bin and wait for the cookie to come out. So the owner has to dispose his little bag in the bin in order to please the dog and continue the walk.

Song Dryer

2022-10-27 16:01 - 0 Comments

In bathrooms, many people don't like using the hot hand dryers vs. the alternative paper towel. There has to be a way to make those more fun. Perhaps instead of just hearing air blow out of the thing, maybe music instead, and not just the same song over and over. Use different songs that many people will like. They might actually use the dryer longer so they can finish the song, thus drying their hands effectively.
