Many people do not wash like they should after using the lavatory. Growing concerns over bacteria causing illnesses (i.e. SWINE flu, Common colds) and just plain nastiness are on everyone’s minds.

Joyride to School

2021-12-15 22:51 - 0 Comments

So what's the most boring thing kids have to do everyday? Going to school. They just won't get out of bed or wash up or get dressed or get on that bus. So...what if we made the ride to school really really fun and something kids look forward to everyday. The idea is to transform school buses into boats, helicopters, spaceships etc. Do all sorts of fun things inside - like water-bed seats, video games and music, painting etc. There maybe around 8-10 buses in every school, so the buses can be changed everyday for every lot of kids.

Giving Made Fun

2021-12-15 23:00 - 0 Comments

What if giving money for a good cause was made fun? We propose the ‘Giving Made Fun’ campaign. We propose using parking meters and placing them in busy walking streets. The parking meter will have a sign on it saying ‘Giving Made Fun – funds raised will support Charity XYZ.’ The parking meters will be retrofitted in order to take coins as well as notes. When someone inserts a coin and twists the dial, the parking meter will start playing funky disco music, simultaneously performers will start dancing to the beat.

What’s the need?
Connecting with nature as a Living and not only an existing being.
This ideas will help educate and create a connect between us humans and Mother Nature through trees. Deforestation is on the rise in many countries. Nations are working hard to cut down pollution and stop global warming. This simple gesture is one step in building a relationship between an individual and our planet. Going one step ahead and asking the common man to help plant a little sapling.

Concept for Fun theory

There are Trees most often planted on the side walk.

Cleaning the shoes at the doormat is good way to leave the dirt outside and also to save a lot of water, cleaning supplies and manpower inside a building.
The doormat can be used for normal house entrances (also as a substitute for the doorbell, meaning the sound can be heard inside as well) or even for big entrances of offices or public buildings (here the composition may be recorded and the next visitor may listen to it before making a new one).

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.

Parking meter - Mr and Mrs Depressed

2021-12-15 23:17 - 0 Comments

Every object in our surrounding have an emotional connection to us (both good and bad feeling), especially the objects that are commonly seen on the street that people interact with everyday. People hate parking meters, which cause them to lose money. Since, I believe everyone should enjoy their lives, despite the bad things. Therefore, I choose to re-design the physical aspect of the parking meter so that people would have fun when using them. As a result, the parking meter is re-designed with the same function but offer a different value to the user.

The Red Light Player

Waiting for the red man to change on the traffic light, while necessary for maintaining your life, is a bummer. Our aim was making the wait pleasurable. We did it by posting Adam Ben Ezra in one side of a heavily traveled zebra crossing. Our guy plays when the light is red, and rests when it turns green. For our special operation we made double bass covers for famous songs containing words like "stop", "stand", etc.

Most of the people who smoke don't really take care where they throw their cigarette buds. Although there are enough public ashtrays and especially downtown and in pedestrian zones, people still throw their buds on the street. Our idea is to get their attention with lights and sound, by installing a heat sensor on the ashtray plate and connecting it to LED lights formed in the shape of fireworks, and a small speaker. As the cigarette touches the ashtray, the heat sensor will send trigger the lights, and the sound.

Over the Weather

Over the weather. How to make bad weather fun? Location : Copenhagen, but the project is adaptable to other cities Description: Weather changes. And we can feel this change, as the temperature drops, the rain starts to drip, the winds starts howling. We notice the change, and it affects our lives in many ways. In Copenhagen, everyone is worried about the weather and everybody talks about it. It’s a recurrent subject, more than in other cities, because here, the weather is changing so often. Due of the proximity of the sea, there is a lot of wind, especially when the seasons are changing.

Crosswalks are everywhere where we need them, but paradoxically people prefer to cross the street on other places, even when the crosswalk is only few meters away. This causes accidents.

In the videoclip from Michael Jacksons „Billie Jean“, he walks on a path and everything he touches lights up. I always found that fascinating, specially the lights on the floor.

Modern Times for Batteries

2021-12-15 23:42 - 0 Comments

Most batteries become highly hazardous at the end of their useful life.
Therefore it is necessary to collect them for appropriate disposal or recycling.
The idea is to make an eye-catching mechanism (similar to the one in Charlie Chaplins movie ‘Modern Times’) that is activated through batteries. Every inserted battery makes the mechanism turn for several seconds. The more batteries are inserted, the longer the machine is working. Submitted by Bernhard Neuwirth and Alina Avscharova

Problem:
Parking is a big problem for people especially in public spheres. Even it doesn’t seem as a big problem, it is really a big problem for drivers who can not find a parking area especially in big and crowded cities because of the other drivers who do not park in a regular way to the areas that are lined before. We tried to show this problem with some photos. As you see, in these photos, cars are not in a regular way and one car parks in a place where two car can park.
