Hubert the Gumball Dog

2021-12-15 16:43 - 0 Comments

Humane societies are often understaffed and crowded, yet it is difficult to get awareness into communities and encourage people to donate. However, many do have a certain weakness to two things – cute animals and delicious candy. Hubert, the mascot of a humane society, needs your help. When you donate to Hubert’s hungry tummy, he will reward you with a wonderfully bright gumball from his bum bum. Our furry friend will be placed in public places such as malls and grocery stores. Donating to a good cause has never been more silly or fun than this.

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.

Fun and sport at the Metro station

2021-12-15 16:54 - 0 Comments

Every day, a lot of people spend time waiting at the metro station.
Instead of waiting without anything to do, let the people do some sport while having fun!
Special spinning bicycles will be placed at the station.
When a person will cycle the bicycle the spinning wheel will produce electricity that will light colorful lights and play some music.
The beauty about this idea is that while people are doing sport they are improving their health and producing green energy at the same time.

Make Your Watermark

2021-11-17 13:09 - 0 Comments

Vending machines usually dispense sugary liquid that isn't good for anyone. But those colourful plastic bottles are so much more appealing than water. To change people's behaviour, how about making a vending machine that dispenses water in tetra paks. To make it fun, the vending machine will have an interactive graffiti screen where people can use colours and finger strokes to design one side of their water pak. There could also be pre-loaded designs to choose from--or you can freestyle. The result is a customized water "bottle".

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.

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.

The Shopping Cart Return

Problem: Shopping carts are not being returned. Instead they are left scattered around the parking lot, often occupying a parking space and sometimes rolling in to vehicles causing damage while unsuspecting shoppers are off shopping.

Reusable Coffee Mug Lottery

2021-12-07 14:47 - 0 Comments

Statistics show that Americans alone devour over 400 million cups of coffee daily, going through 400 million paper cups in the process. Dumping, recycling or filling up landfills with these cups is a waste of time, energy and money. As a way to change people’s behavior and outlook on reusable mugs, institute a fun system where each reusable mug is assigned a coffee code, enabling them to win 1 of 10 daily prizes in every coffee shop, ranging from a muffin, scone or other pastry to a larger monthly prize. Not sold on using mugs from the shop? Have a favorite mug?

Energy Floor

People usually don’t have the motivation to produce energy through itself. Therefore we can use senseless waiting time to produce electricity through the vibration on the interactive energy floor. Below grade, the produced energy is saved and transformed. So, for example, the won energy could be used for the street lighting. Submitted by Maria Siebert.

A guillotine, if one designed to crush rather than cut. The weight of the crusher will need to be pretty significant, so the motive force to elevate it is a geared ratchet (cool sound) powered by pedaling a bicycle. One at the drop point, a can (or collection) is placed underneath to be flattened. Once so squished, a trapdoor can be activated to drop them into the receptacle below.

Bored with your music? Plug your headphones into the radio system and listen to other people's music. Or DJ your own tracks and get talking with other listeners. If someone tunes into to your show, your light flashes. The more people you have listening, the hotter your light's colour. If you like what you hear, why not say hello to your DJ, they're sitting on the same bus!

In Geneva where I live there are sign posts which distribute free bags for people to collect their dogs’ doings. The bags distributed are boring plain black plastic bags. “Political Poop” is the project that will print on the bags political promises to increase their appeal and usage.

Every time we go to a recycling point we will be given a fact about ecology, or what is happening to the earth and solutions that could be done.
Recycling points must to be part of our daily life. We sometimes don´t know anything about the importance of recycle, so the bin could help us to know more.
Funny that a bin can speak to us, and educational for everyone. Submitted by Veronica M. Guerrero

No boring bus stop

The Bus Stops are boring places, we intend, using less money as possible, to transform them into interactive and joyfully places. Every week a big crosswords table will be installed at the bus stop. The people that are waiting for the bus could play completing the crosswords, using a big pencil (to avoid people to steal it) connected to the bus stop with a little chain…

A recycle bin turned into fun poll-machine. Two transparent cylinders with scales are showing the public opinion. People can "vote" with
their garbage, by throwing it into YES or NO can. You can change the questions over the time to keep the poll fresh and sharp, based on what is important at the moment in the given location.

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.

Enjoy My View

A periscope is attached to a bus stop. It aims to entertain and reduce the stress of commuters, avoiding the wait/walk dilemma. It transforms the bus stop into a playground by providing a fun diversion while waiting for the bus. The commuters can not only see if the bus is coming but by using the periscope handler, they can explore other views of the city. At the same time it works as a critical object: by being present, it also aims to initiate a conversation about the problem and the lack of the real-time information system in NYC bus stops.

Choose Paper Bags over plastics- period. Let's get everyone on board, that is, retailers, grocery stores, and companies large and small who advertise coupons-- have them utilize paper bags for advertising/printing coupons. It will be more readily seen by consumers (rather than stuffed into mailboxes and thrown away) -- a far better way to get us back to using paper bags just the way we used to before plastics bags were invented.
