Velcro Grocery Bag

2021-12-15 16:32 - 0 Comments

The main problem of the green grocery bag is that people forget it at home. We wanted to change the mindset of shoppers when it comes to bags: today it costs them in Toronto 5 cents for every plastic bag. It is obvious that a cost is not a deterrent of forgetfulness. We want them to think of the green bag in terms of savings. To that effect we are proposing a grocery bag that you can stick velcro grocery list items on. This saves the shopper time from having to write a list or call their spouse to tell them what they need to buy. It also saves their sanity because.

Energy generating bike

2021-12-15 16:31 - 0 Comments

Use an ergometric bike (fitness bike) to generate electric energy for a bus/train/ferry stop. All types of users and public can ride a bike while waiting for public transportation, where the mechanical energy provided by the user is transformed in electric energy and used in the illumination of the bus/train stop at night. The advertising display is also transformed in a video game screen. According to the distances covered by the users, the battery bar in the screen is filled until the “champion” completes the whole bar.

The Musical Sink

Can we encourage cleanliness with a simple bit of fun?
Our idea makes hand-washing fun! Stepping on a pressure pad in front of the sink starts the bass and drums, turning the tap adds another layer of music, and pressing the soaps adds the final layer of music.

Why do pedestrians spent time on traffic lights?
- Because they have to...
Do they enjoy this? - Probably not...
So, why not turning wasted time, standing around and waiting, into an interactive game, which keeps up your fitness and rewards you for your patience?

When it rains... Water would follow the track and go through the conduit into the container. People could make water spouting from a pipe while they pump the water from the container. While the water spouting into the plant on top with LED light inside, the LED light would light up the plant. The water would keep going through the pipe of the plant on top, slowly dropping and watering the real plant in the bottle under the cage. The remaining water would drop on conduit on the ground to irrigate trees and grass.

An interesting bike concept that offers a great doze of exercise as well as a funny experience through which you can measure your energetic potential.

The concept is simple: the electricity produced while pedaling is collected and can feed up various electric devices. The scientific application has been around for quite a while now but how many times was it transposed into an application that would also generate fun?

Yoga on the Metro

We don't conceive a transportation system as embodying neutral values, but recognize it as a social construction that creates a certain type of power structure. Metro system hides people's characters, hence a cheerless atmosphere is created. How does this value constitutes norms and results how people behave and use the urban space?

Many people read comics rather than reading dictionaries.. However, dictionary has more useful informations. So if we make the dictionary that is talking when we filp the page,or touching the book, than many people will rather read dictionary than comics.

A humouristic and ‘sadic’ way to stop people from throwing cigarette butts on the street.
Wouldn’t it be fun if you could just burn them out on a ‘screaming hand’?
Both on human statues (provided with special fireproof hands) and hand-shaped bins, in the most strategic locations, as well as at gas stations.

Queue 4 Life

2021-12-15 16:04 - 0 Comments

The basic idea of this project is to teach to people to make the queue. This is a real problem in public places (where there is not a conditioned queue for safety issues) and a real problem in many countries like Italy.
How the project is: 1. create a "queue area", a line that indicate the pathway for the persons, you can make it funny by using lights or other stuff, but it's not compulsory; 2. the area "outside" the queue must become a noisy area and people must be embarrassed on walking on it.

Wash Hands with Soap Game

2021-12-15 15:57 - 0 Comments

Objective: To get more people to use soap when washing their hands after using the restroom.
A recent article in USA Today reported that when people wash their hands after using the restroom, only 33% use soap and only 16% adequately wash. The average hand-washing time was a pathetic 11 seconds.
So we need a fun way to motivate people to wash their hands adequately using soap.

When flying, people tend to get bored and jet-lagged. This solution would provide passengers with fun competitive video games. In every plane seat, there would be a portable game system that lets passengers play video games, live, against other passengers on the same plane. There would be a high-scores list that shows which seat/person has the highest score. For people who do not wish to play, the system would also have a chat-room where passengers could chat with other passengers about their destination.

Give Peace a Chance

Too often in our disputes with friends, family and neighbors we chose non-productive and sometime destructive options for handling conflict. Over time these become knee-jerk reactions with little thought going to other ways of engaging those with whom we are in conflict.

Give Peace a Chance is a game, located in large public spaces, that helps people explore constructive alternatives in handling their everyday disputes.

Bus Stop Sight Seeing

Waiting at the bus stop may be boring. You would probably be waiting on the bench and getting tired, and bored with nothing to do. You would be sending text messages or maybe playing with your fingers. The bus is very late because of the traffic, and precious minutes are ticking off the clock. Minutes might become hours. Waiting for the bus to come would take ages.

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.
