Can crasher

2021-12-16 15:53 - 0 Comments

What is the matter? We would like people to recycle their cans. But how? The can crasher combines two things: the first one is a trash. When a can is put in, it follows a funny path and lands on a platform. The second thing is a punching device. Smash it with your hand hard enough to reach the top. If you do so, the bell rings and a heavy metal piece falls down and crashes your can! It can then be recycled. If you are not strong enough to make the bell rings, ask a friend or a man who is passing by! Everyone can take his chance to crash the cans!

Mock the germs!

There is panic amid people concerning the swine flu. They started to wear masks in public places and it is pretty freaky because beyond protection it generates fear and anxiety.
Let’s make it less freaky in a fun way. :)
You can find a protective “mocking mask” at the subway and in bus stations in special friendly placements.

The aim is to persuade the smoker to cast the stubs at the right place.
The ashtray screen will give a random emoticon+sound answer when activated, rewarding the citizen for his kind act with a positive and funny gesture, trying to put a smile upon the smoker´s face.

Musical Hand Wash

2021-12-16 15:43 - 0 Comments

Kids don't always wash their hands properly. A Musical Hand Wash featuring music, animal images and fun instructions is a great way to teach and to remind kids how to wash their hands properly. A musical welcome mat would start the step-by-step instructions for washing hands. A sink with an elephant for the faucet would be enticing and water would be released when a sensor detects hands under the trunk. Another sensor on the soap dispenser beside the sink would detect when soap has been released and music would play for 20 seconds.

Little effort, Big differences

We want to show people how with a little action they can contribute to a bigger one, and a better world with it. We are using a teddy bear who lost its owner. With a walkie talkie inside the little bear we ask people for a little trip. Six families helped the bear Morrison to get from one side to another of the Retiro park in Madrid, they just needed to walk for some meters, but together it was a considerable distance.

Tree Board

The world is in a very critical stage. There are lot of issues like global warming , scarcity of resources and others which the future generations have to face the effects. My design is an attempt to raise the awareness and encourage more people to choose sustainable and environment friendly options like cycling. A board bearing the illustrations of a tree and earth is placed beside the cycling track , which has leaves fitted with green colour LEDs. There are pressure sensors placed on the cycling track , which detects the passing cycle and lights up the Green LEDs on the tree board.

We understood that the concept of fun theory has been created to change trough fun wrong behaviours of the citizens. Since there, we tried to find “wrong behaviours” around us. In fact in Lisbon, our city, you will find two places very dirty: Bairro alto and Santos. They are party places; you can find there plenty of bars and a lot of people, mostly on weekends. Also in those places you don’t find a lot of garbage, that’s why the floor is full of glasses, empty bottles and smoked cigarettes. Nowadays no one does the effort to reach garbage. We decided to change that precise behaviour.

Canabaplastic Crusher

Fun way of crushing cans or plastic containers while exercising those biceps and triceps. You can do it solo or with a friend. Just insert the materials into the box, close the lid, turn the handles and watch them get crushed through the transparent Plexiglas. Once the materials have been fully crushed to your content, just release the latch for them to be dumped in the recycling bin. Can also be re-configured to use your legs for those cycling enthusiasts.

The container "hungry cigar" invited the smoker to throw the butt in it! You can not go wrong container, he is a great cigar! His red face is the place to extinguish your cigarette. No more dirty walls! The butt rotates in the tube and get to the bottom with a funny thank! You calm his appetite! The meter will reveal how many cigarette butts are deposited in it!

Can You Plinko It?

2021-12-16 15:27 - 0 Comments

My idea is based on the game of Plinko, from the tv show, The Price is Right. It's meant to be a fun way to recycle cans because aluminum is one of the most environmentally harmful minerals to mine. Basically it's a plinko board that is on top of a recycling bin for cans and bottles (only if your region accepts cans and bottles mixed together), so that they can be recycled normally if they'd rather not play.

Battery Recycling Jukebox

2021-12-16 15:26 - 0 Comments

Batteries disposed irresponsibly in municipal landfills or trash incinerators can disperse significant amounts of toxic substances in the air and water. So, a battery waste prevention and recycling campaign is more than welcomed. And how can we stimulate people in joining and promoting these initiatives more but by making this entertaining, fun and engaging for them?

Fun mirrors

2021-12-16 15:25 - 0 Comments

We always forget to wash our hands after we go to the restroom. So the idea is to put a mini game on the mirror and the buttons are on the bottom. You will have 30 seconds to wash them and win the mini game.You will have three buttons on the sink, the buttons have a protector against water. The mirror will have 5 different mini games and are chose randomly. If you win bubbles will come out from different parts of the room, but if you loose you will be splashed by a ballon that is up on the roof but inside. The mirror will say the instructions on the right in a paper.

Fortune machine

Everyone knows that a huge aesthetic problem on the streets in all cities is the chewing gums. People are so lazy that they just spit out their gum on the street not bothering to trough it in the trash bins around town. Therefore we have come up with a solution to this problem. A giant fortune cookie will be placed on places were there can be expected that a lot of chewing gums will end up, usually on squares and other big spaces like train stations and bus stops. A bin is placed right in front of the fortune cookie were you are supposed to put your used chewing gum.

The idea behind this entry is to provide a simple game that elicits proper hand washing hygiene and at the same time keeps the user entertained. A user could be attracted to the screen and the game starts as soon as they step on the mat. They start playing a simple arcade game as soon as they start washing their hands that can be testing their reaction times or have them controlling a flying car through a maze. This game lasts at least as long as doctors recommend hand washes should last. Finally, high scores of the day are displayed. Submitted by Santiago Padilla

Human beings are social by nature. But our modern daily life makes us adopt some behaviors and attitudes that limit our relationships among each others. We are so involved in our own world that we are becoming less open to people. The subway (metro) is a clear scenario where this happens. Lots and lots of people, strangers between them and no one dares to share something as simple as a smile.

There's not a lot of incentives to recycle aluminum cans; the bins can be hard to find, they're often confused with trash bins, and the experience of tossing a can rarely makes a person smile. But, things CAN be different! Introducing... Clink-O-- a board and peg game that encourages players to drop their crushed cans into a grid of pegs and test their skill (or luck?) at scoring points in the slots below. Cans are collected beneath the game board and recycled for future use.
