Piggy bank

2021-12-15 21:29 - 0 Comments

This piggy bank is like your dog or your cat, it is alive and it needs you to take care of it. When it is moved or randomly, when it senses that somebody is around, it gets sad and calls your attention because it needs to be fed. For doing that, its owner has to feed it with a small random amount of money that will be taken from the credit card. The idea is that the owner has to take care of it, but at the same time, it will save money for you and put it in a separate savings account. This way, at the end of the month you'll always have some money you saved because of taking care of it.

Noisy poop scoop

2021-12-15 21:29 - 0 Comments

Dog poop scooping is no fun! But it is less fun to live in a city full of poop…
How could poop scooping be less annoying?
A scooper that makes funny noises can become a new way to play with your dog. This scooper has a mechanism that creates funny noises when collecting poop. You can choose between different sounds (cat noise, toy squiz, barking…).
You could enjoy your dog’s reaction to the noises and interact with other people that use different noises too.
Simple and fun, not only for people but for dogs too!

Eletricity Generator BICycle will replace all seats in the subway train. 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.

Works in the town are always disturbing. Neighbours get angry and workers do not work comfortable. If the atmosphere is good, people work faster, better, and everybody is happy. Can we create a pleasant environment with fun? We think so.

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.

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.

Cigarettes gravebin

2021-12-15 21:09 - 0 Comments

Since cigarette butts are a big problem today, as it represent more than half of the litter thrown in the streets , I propose to make a “cigarette cemetery”. This means that there will be small bins that can be attached to the street lamps, garbage bins, traffic lights or panels from the bus stops. After you smoke a cigarette (you kill the cigarette) it would be nice to burry it in the “gravebin”. So when you throw the cigarette butt it should be played a part from the funeral song, or a voice could say “may it rest in peace”, “it was a good cig” and other things like this.

Rainbow Race Treadmill

2021-12-15 21:07 - 0 Comments

Rainbow Race Treadmill is a fun way to exercise. We took the concept of Nintendo Mario Kart and applied it to a treadmill. While running on the treadmill, the runner will focus on a screen in front of the treadmill that displays the rainbow race track in Mario Kart. Also, the treadmill itself has a rainbow pattern to imitate the idea that the runner is actually running on the rainbow race track. The runner can get bonuses while running, which creates an enjoyable running experience. The runner can go as fast or slow as she or he wants to accommodate all ages and exercise abilities.

In public toilets, where hand dryers are available, most people use toilet paper to dry their hands because it is faster. We are wasting paper using it in the wrong way; this also means we are cutting trees because we can't wait one minute using the hand dryer. Other consequence is more expenses buying more quantities of toilet paper in every place where a public toilet is located.

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.

Can we get more people to replace bottled water for drinking fountains by making it fun to do?
BIG PROBLEM: Plastic bottles can take up to 1000 years to biodegradate and currently only 10% of almost 40'000'000 bottles consumed a day worlwide is properly recycled. Bottled water consumed in America in one year requires over 1'500'000 barrels of oil, enough to power up 250,000 homes in the same year.

Soap Busters

2021-12-15 20:59 - 0 Comments

For the prevention of H1N1 flu, the guidelines stress washing one's hands with SOAP. Yet, some people in public bathrooms ignore the soap dispensers. They either skip washing their hands, or they merely rinse them in water. We propose posting above the soap dispensers a sign saying, "USE SOAP to COPE with H1N1". The soap dispensers would be equipped with a motion-triggered recording emitting a "Thank you" -- each “Thank you” in a different language.

The Proximity Stereo

2021-12-15 20:56 - 0 Comments

Close driving is one of the greatest hazards on the road. Sometimes, because of distractions or lack of depth perception, people aren't even aware of how close they are to another driver or object. The Proximity Stereo detects when a driver is coming up too quickly on another object or car, and switches the music in the car to something the driver does not want to hear, not allowing the driver to return to his or her favourite music until the driver has backed off to a safe distance from the object.

People have many excuses to don't use the zebra crossing. By doing this, they put themselves, other pedestrians and drivers in danger. So how can we make the path to the traffic light more interesting causing people to walk all the way to the zebra crossing? By making it more fun.
Everybody loves popping bubble wraps. By putting footprints with eletronic sensors connected to speakers, people'd feel like they're popping it by stepping on the footprints. This way, we'd be using their fascination with bubble wrap to lead them to the crosswalk.

GPS with Personality

2021-12-15 20:50 - 0 Comments

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!

The Cheering Food Collector

In these times of unprecedented economic crisis that affects the entire world some of our fellow people have become even poorer than before and have problems in covering their food needs. A ‘cheering food collector’ placed after the cashiers in grocery and market stores will induce people to contribute an item of their groceries and will make it fun to do so. Helping people in need of course comes from an intrinsic urge. But we can still make helping more accessible and provide fun incentives to make even more people reveal their compassionate side.
