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?
Crossroadfitnessfunlight is a playful light- & soundinstallation in public space. Watch the video! :)

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.

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.

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.

2021-12-15 16:35 - 0 Comments

A dashboard game that’s inspirer people to drive cars more CO2-friendly.

Background:
There are a few easy things you can do when you drive your car to help reduce the amount of fuel you burn and so cut down on CO2 emissions.

The secret is to help reduce the amount of work your engine has to do, because the greater the workload, the more fuel is burned – so the higher is the CO2 emissions.

One View

As a society, we are disengaged from our future (i.e. we don't work together to bring about social change more often and more forcefully). We also strongly believe that the main reason for this is the fact that we are built to discount issues that we are not immediately connected with (either in terms of time or in terms of location). What we propose is that we use technology to break down this artificial barriers we create in our mind between us and our future and between us and the rest of the world.

Currently, don't you do what the second image shows?
Well how about, instead of contributing to Global Warming, how about you get creative and select one of several designs in which your Old Credit/Debit Card gets remade into something special and useful for you!

As you see on the third and fourth images, your Old Credit/Debit Card will be moulded, cut and remade into a design of your choice!

You could even submit a design which you would like your Old Credit/Debit Card to be moulded into!

Cigarette Butt Incinerator

2021-12-15 16:38 - 0 Comments

This is to stop people from littering their cigarettes butts on the ground. It also shows that the filter is highly toxic to maybe stop people from smoking so much. You deposit the cigarette into the hole where it says insert butt and BAM, the butt goes up in flames.

The Communication Station

2021-12-15 16:40 - 0 Comments

My 82 year old mother will never own a laptop or a cellphone, but she does have a television. The only technology most households on earth have in common is television. There should be a TV network devoted to sending and receiving messages and this would be called the Communication Station.

Here's how it would work:

- Grandma is watching the Nightly News. Suddenly a flashing envelope appears in the corner of the screen.
- Using the special remote control she received when she signed up for the Communication Station, she clicks on the envelope to open it.

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.

Recycling Hockey Table

2021-12-15 16:46 - 0 Comments

The recycling hockey table purpose is to make people to throw their empty cans in the correct bin in order to recycle them. The difference with this table is that you can play and get fun with a can before you throw it away; the can will be the disc and when you score it will go to a close deposit in the table’s bottom.

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.

This is designed to stop people from littering the street with cigarette buts. It uses the game of chance to make people want to bin there cigarettes. It is a wall mounted ashtray with a fruit machine built in. When you put your finished cigarette in to the top of the ashtray it will start the game. You only get one try. You pull down the handle and spin the wheels, depending on how the wheels stop you will get a prize. The prize could be a piece of chewing gum, or a whole pack.

The Recycling Game Machine

2021-12-15 17:01 - 0 Comments

This is my solution for the littering problem. It's a recycling game machine that will educate the youth (or the adults) by teaching them that recycling is fun! This machine is a portable big hockey table that has a mechanism to transform cans into pucks and also a car jack to lift the one side of the floor in order to unload the cans when the container is full. The game can be played with two players. Each player holds a rounder and tries to score by hitting the puck.

Calories to Watts

2021-12-15 17:08 - 0 Comments

The people exercise to burn calories and become more fit. Various exercise machines are used, such as bikes and elliptical equipment. Weights, wheels, springs, magnets etc. are used to create resistance. Burning calories is not always fun and it is energy wasted in vain. However, if we use electrical generator to create the resistance in the exercise equipment, than our exercise can be used to produce electrical energy. Imagine a gym full of rotational and elliptical equipment and the electricity that can be produced when the gym is full.

Trash Can Rocket

2021-12-15 17:14 - 0 Comments

This Project is to make people to throw the garbage in the trash can by making it fun to do with a trash can rocket that you can play with. Every time you throw garbage the lights will turn on first the red light, then the yellow light and finally the green light and also a sound like a rocket will turn on, and once you get to the green light you will be a winner! The idea is to make people to throw more garbage to keep playing.

Fed up of having to pay to use jukeboxes in public places? What if you didn't have to pay to listen to music? My idea encourages people to recycle and in return are rewarded with one credit of music per object which is deposited into the bin. They are then given a choice of music to be played and listened to by people in a public area. This doesn't just benefit the user, but is also making the planet a greener place.

Fun Speeding Feedback

2021-12-15 17:18 - 0 Comments

My idea is to have markings on the road that when seen by the driver of an approaching vehicle appear to change shape at a precise speed. For instance a car approaching markings positioned at a 20mph speed limit at 20mph +/- 2mph, instead of seeing a random set of dots and lines would see a smiling face or other appropriate graphics. The fun element of this is that the graphic would be different not only for different speed limits but also for different locations so there would always be an incentive to drive within the limit to see which graphic would appear.
