Queuing can be fun too!

The idea is to print funny quotes, jokes, or any other funny message on a floor sticker and then apply it where people stand to form a queue (i.e. in front of money tills, ATMs, airport check-in desks, etc). Benefits: - People will have something funny and enjoyable to spend their time with, while waiting in a queue (queuing will become less boring). - People reading these messages will become more relaxed and less frustrated, hence will smile more.

On the way home from work at least one local supermarket shopping trolley (Shopping cart) has made its way up the street and onto the front lawn of our local housing project. Invariably the cart will sit there for a week and attract other carts until the local council has to collect and return them at a cost. Some times they’re so badly damaged they just get thrown away. Large shopping centers can generate up to 200 missing shopping trolleys a day and one Australian business that tracks and returns shopping trolleys receives on average 1000 phone calls a week from the public.

Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Submitted by Gilles Bonifait.

The messages could be famous phrases, fun messages or good advices. This could make this task funnier. Submitted by Ricardo Smith & David Vallejo

I have identified a problem in buildings which have a reduced number of floors and an elevator. People choose to use the elevator instead of climbing the stairs, which can often be faster and better for physical fitness, but can also mean economy of electricity. In order to change this kind of behavior, we will implement the diet elevator.This elevator contains a weighting machine in the floor. Elevators anyhow have pressure sensor but this will be more precise and will give the exact weight of the person from the elevator, by using an electronic screen placed on the elevator’s wall.

Throwing spent batteries in the trash is harmful to our environment. There are some states in the US that even have rules to prevent their improper disposal. To promote the correct disposal of these batteries, a fun way would be to create a container that can answer a question, like a Magic 8 Ball. You put your battery and it is thrown to the container, being shaked and moved by its internal devices, so that at the end it falls into one of the possible answers. Submitted by Iris.

Slow Down, Hit The Bullseye, Save Lives. Road Darts can be played anywhere. However, due to the problem of slowing people down too much in a congested area, it is recommended to do testing of Road Darts in a busier residential area first to see if it scales. Metrics -A researcher can monitor the proposed location during busy hours for a defined period (24 hrs) using a radar detection device w/o revealing his or her presence. This creates a control. -Then a traditional speed detection device (that displays the current speed numerically) should be placed at the location.

To encourage people to walk more we need to develop comfortable joggers. As people nowadays are very much interested in i-pods these days what we need to do is develop joggers with musical players in them . THE PLAYER WILL ONLY WORK WHEN WHEN ONE IS WALKING WEARING THOSE JOGGERS and music would stop after couple of seconds as you stop. You can have a wide range of songs in your player. As you walk the battery/batteries of musical player would get charged so you need not to worry for that. You can control the play list, volume and other features using a pocket size remote control.

Often people don't care how increased power consumption impacts our environment. If one could replace traditional power counter in his home by VOME - Voice Of Mother Earth module he would hear sounds like wheeze, buzz, groan or howl each time power consumption increases significantly. On the other hand once we turn out the devices mother earth will let us know how pleased she is by twittering, cooing or any other nature positive sounds. In this way it would be much funnier to save power, what should result in greater savings, isn't that? Submitted by Marcin Maciejewski.

Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.

What you can do with all the garbage in your pockets?... you cant' throw it anywhere. A trash can is a good solution, but, if you don't see anyone? Make a garbage collage! Just take all this papers, add a little of glue and paste it wherever you want, following figure. Thereby you can take part of a big social project, a huge art project with a lots of fun, where every person participates in his creation.

Can a sanitizing water instrument save lives? Two million children die each year in developing countries from drinking unsafe water.* Despite numerous cheap and effective treatment technologies,* water continues to be consumed untreated. Studies* show that many poor people are skeptical of the link between water quality and the deaths of their children. Thus, the problem of providing safe water to children is not one of technology, but of a lack of incentive,* or a lack of fun! What if we could make it fun to sanitize drinking water?

After every shopping tour, you get a bunch of small coins. The basic idea is to mount a big magnet on a street light or a building, which collects the magnetic 1,2 and 5-cent coins. Once a week the collected money will be removed and donated to a social institution or homeless people. Possible variations of the idea are: - a pair of balanced magnets; every week a new question will be shown where people can vote for one option - a machine that starts a special event once a certain amount of money (=weight) pulls on the magnet.

I want to create a mobile, sectional pipe organ that can be installed and performed anywhere, turning the space itself into a unique, reactive instrument. A large portion of the project will be public installations, allowing people to see, play, and experience the instrument for themselves. The idea is to inform people about an awesome instrument that is little understood and seldom played with by creating a invasive and interactive version that can be played by anyone. I've designed a pipe organ in which each pipe is independent, connected along to a central air supply through a long hose.
