Cartoon Bus

2021-12-15 20:43 - 0 Comments

A holographic picture is layed on the bottom of buses, such that it can't be seen from any angle. Only when the person is standing the picture can be seen. Thus, by making the picture interesting for younger people there will be seats enough for the older people to sit down. The picture may convey an interesting story for the young, but an uninteresting story for the old. For example, short jokes (like Garfield) or simply pictures of beautiful women are well suited.

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.

A container/ashtray for out-side use. How to use: spinning the ashtray generates energi which drives a cylinder with cartoon characters in different sizes on. The spinning makes the illusion of dancing, a simple filmteknik. Because smoking isn´t allowed indoors, the smokers makes the city streets looks like ashtrays, which becomes a anviromentproblem as well as an estetic pollution of the public room.

Fever Meter

2021-12-15 20:39 - 0 Comments

Having fever is never a pleasant thought. But a little bit of science could make you look forward to being unwell. Fever meter is a fun innovation based on the concept of a Hand Boiler. Pleasant colored bulbs are attached to the sides of your bed. Each attached with transparent thin tubes running across the walls and ceiling of your room. When you touch the bulbs the warmth makes the colored liquid run across the room in patterns. If you touch multiple bulbs with your hands and feet you get more colors and patterns. Patterns could be changed as the tubes are flexible.

Traffic tetris

2021-12-15 20:38 - 0 Comments

There are motorists who try to be in the fast lane in spite of knowing that they would need to change lanes in a short distance

1) The stretch just before a junction is treated as a point for motorist to correct their lanes. This leads to confusion, traffic jams and accidents.

2) If which car is headed in what direction is known in advance then it would be easier to control traffic

3) Traffic Tetris makes this possible in a fun way.

To participate, every motorist needs to define his destination and the route he’d take. Vehicles heading in the same direction are given one color.

Slide It Doormat

2021-12-15 20:34 - 0 Comments

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. The aim was to motivate people opening slide doors with funny and unusual movements. Therefore we combined the unlock mechanism of a fruit labeled communication device with a doormat. Not only tech savvy pedestrians used the mat, but also average people adopted the unlock mechanism intuitively.

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?

Road Roller Iron

2021-12-15 20:25 - 0 Comments

Ironing clothes can be a boring task and getting the creases removed from your clothes perfectly is next to impossible. Now all you need to do is place your shirt on a customized iron board with sensors. You need to define the task. What is to be ironed? Shirt, trouser etc. The board defines your play area with lights depending on your selection. Creases are highlighted. Place the mini road roller iron on the shirt, sit back and let the fun begin. With a remote control you need to guide the road roller around the highlighted creases. If you move out of your play area, you lose points.

The pedaling battery charger is a sort of phone booth that allows you to recharge every type of phone. Inside you can find several attacks and certainly there will also be your among them.

The true about how this new idea born, is that I first think about the challenge of how boring and sometimes tired is to put every can in the floor and then crush each can, the action repeats depending on how many cans you have, and the challenge of make some space, and then recycle each can, it’s just annoying, or simply most of the time people, just mix the cans with all the garbage .Well this is a new container crusher thrasher, where you can put the soda empty cans, and have fun while you recycle.

Street Dancer Semaphore

2021-12-15 20:21 - 0 Comments

The pedestrians do not respect the red light of the semaphore in the corners. Nobody pays attention to the little man who indicates us to stop and wait. Maybe he should do something more than simply be standing there. Can we give to people an entertaining way of waiting before crossing in a right form? Yes! With the red dancer man nobody will want to miss the show. A led display shows his movements, accompanied with the rhythm of a cheerful music that comes out from small incorporated speakers.

Do you like watching TV?
Why do we have to find new ways to have fun if we can take old "ways" and change it? Nowadays watching a lot of TV is a habit of most of the population.
We want to bring people together again and get them outside to have fun by watching the "real world".
Putting large couches and empty TV boxes in puplic places encourages people to sit down and arouse interest in their surroundings again. Submitted by Simon Scherer.

Speaking signal light for kids

Every year many children get involved in car accidents by crossing red signal lights.
How can we change it by making it more fun for children to stop at a red light?
An installed box at the signal light talks to the children and plays a song until the light turns green. The box draws the children's attention. They can sing a song until the signal light changes and then safely cross the street.

The Chatter Ladder

Have you ever noticed how loud kids get in cafeterias? The “Chatter Ladder” is our fun and entertaining solution to this problem! A sound meter in the “Chatter Ladder” detects and registers the noise level every second; the quieter students are, the more points they score and the more lights are illuminated on the ladder. Messages scroll across the top of the screen either congratulating or encouraging quiet conversation! An average score is recorded for each lunch period. Each lunch group tries to attain the highest score and see the most lights light up on the “Chatter Ladder”.

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.

How do you get people to wait at a red signal light? Waiting at a signal light is boring. But it's so easy to make it fun!
Just let people communicate at red signal lights via a "signal light phone". The phones are connected with other signal light phones in different cities. So people who never met before can have a conversation while waiting for the light to change.

Let’s make it fun to scoop dog poop! “Lucky Dog” will be a dog-shaped garbage bin that when used will bark at the user and issue a fortune cookie dog treat with the dog’s fortune for the day. Lucky Dog fortunes could include “You will be receiving a treat in the near future. Lucky Dog!” and “Dog-butt ahead. Lucky Dog!” A bag dispenser could be a source of income or simply free to encourage pick-ups. Since dog walks happen near meal times, restaurants could advertise on the bin or cookie wrapper. They could say something like “Congratulations!
