Play GETH2O to Spread Peace

2021-12-16 09:47 - 0 Comments

GETH2O is a strategic board game that aims to develop a culture of peace amongst young people. It will be used in youth groups and community centres in order to reach a large audience across Kenya (50 million people). The central theme of the board game is the chronic water shortages in the slums of Nairobi. So doing the game encapsulates both the larger issues and the daily obstacles in the lives of our target group, the young people. Larger issues such as corruption, leadership and human rights, daily obstacles such as peer pressure, crime and water shortages.

Detect Dirty Hands

2021-12-16 09:51 - 0 Comments

How can we make people wash their hands after using public toilets? A new doorknob could be the solution for this problem: After using the toilet, you have to touch the doorknob in order to unlock and open the door. So a doorknob with a stamp on its backside could put some colour or a funny message on your hand. The ink can easily be washed off with some water and soap - but of course, it will remain for a while if you do not wash your hands. So everybody can see that your hands are still dirty.

Ready, Steady, Shower!

The concept is a racing game to play in the shower, that induces people to speed up. The faster you take your shower, the more you win and more water you save.
This game shows a possible way of saving water when taking a shower, so that the time it takes is reduced in a fun way.
The main concept is that user takes the least time to take a shower doing the usual tasks as shampooing and washing, rushing them in the form of a race.
This game could be diffused online, in a social network, so that friends and neighbours could compete amongst them.

The Smile Machine

2021-12-16 09:59 - 0 Comments

Keeping a happy outlook towards each other is hard in these stressful times. We propose to create a magic mirror to reflect and enhance people’s daily expressions. Our invention is a digital camera with smile detection software, linked to a projector behind a mirror. The display will show the visitor walking by, just like any mirror. But if the visitor stops and looks, a red smile line will be drawn on his or her image, reminding them that it’s up to everyone to inspire each other with fun and good cheer!

Despite the well-known fact that their production pollutes the environment, nylon bags are still used in significant amounts all over the world. The main issue that this proposal addresses is how to disencourage people from using nylon bags when they go shopping. My answer is the Puzzle Game. Its rules are simple: each country will be assigned a puzzle that will depict a typical image or story associated with its culture. When a shop’s customers refuse to get a nylon bag, they will obtain a code.

Nowadays, music is part of everyone's life and songs are a powerful tool to retain information through lyrics. If you just play the first notes of any well known song, almost everybody can sing it, even after many years. Why not learning geography with songs?

The Color Shower

2021-12-16 10:08 - 0 Comments

Can you make people spend less water while taking a bath? Most of the times people leave the tap open even if they are not using the water to shower. This is because they do not want to feel the cold from outside. So the idea would be for each shower to have underneath enough water for a person to shower and a system that could clean and recycle that water. This would prevent people to spend too much water. In addition, this shower would generate a warm atmosphere with different color lights and water vapor.

Traffic Light Movie

2021-12-16 10:09 - 0 Comments

Many cities, especially crowded ones, are having a problem - the crossing of the streets on not allowed zones, or while the pedestrian traffic light is red, that way creating dangerous situations for themselves and other participants in traffic. One of the solution would be - the entertainment. While waiting at the traffic light, the pedestrians could entertain themselves watching a short movie on special designated mini displays installed on the traffic light itself. The variety of the movies should be vast, and it should be achieved by creating a lot of movies.

Cigarette Litter Joke

2021-12-16 10:10 - 0 Comments

Tired of all the cigarettes on the ground? This simple system is the solution. People will just have to put their cigarette litter in the hole of the "box" and thanks to a proximity sensor, it will display a funny joke on the screen that will make the people happier for the rest of the day, and they will speak about this joke or this concept around them. Thanks to this, more and more people will throw their used cigarettes (or paper) in that box.
In the end, this will save the environment and will contribute to the people happiness. Submitted by Fred Pigeard

Can you make people recycle more paper? What if the paper you would bring to the recycle bin could be weighted and a discount ticket to buy more paper would be printed according to the amount of paper recycled? This could reduce the amount of paper needed to be produced.

Counter tap

To conscience is the most effective way to changing every day customs. Small and repetitive gestures of daily life are the ones that have more impact. So the key is to reeducate habits and change people´s behaviours.
The idea is to put a counter or scorer on the tap water , basin and shower, sink.. to show you the amount of water you use and if it possible to use less obtainig the same result. To put a comparative of the litres you have used with a shocking data of what could have been done with the wasted water.

With cigarettes there are two problems. Firstly people smoke them and secondly they throw cigarette butts on the street. My invention is fun and can change peoples behaviour for the better. The bin has a sound system, a sensory system, a mini player and an open mouth. When people put out cigarettes on the bin's tongue and throw it in the mouth the sensory switch will play a cough sound automatically. Submitted by Kakha Khabeishvili.

Batteries are everywhere but after they are used we often forget to return them where we should. A solution is to make returning batteries more fun. Battery games can be any kind of games you find in game halls, but instead of wasting your money you can use your used batteries as coins. You get your fun and the batteries get returned. Battery games can also work as the well known games we all know from our childhood, instead of a ball you play with a battery. Battery games are placed on public places, game halls, etc. where the batteries can easily be collected. Battery fun!

Kids always love to play. But after aftwerwards, they usually prefer to play something else instead of cleanig up their toys. Why not transform the tidying up into a fun thing to do? As always, modern cybernetics is here to save the day: Human's best friends, the Robots, come to help by eating up everything that is fed to them. YUM!

In the city, metro, conventions , It is very common to find magazines, flyers and newspapers mixed in the garbage if not in the floor... when there are the first paper we could easily recycle!!! The PAPER TOILET serves to recuperate in a funny way all these papers by sitting on this special toilet like in a regular one, putting the papers in the middle of the "p" hole, and just flushing.... it's flawless!!!!
- It´s very simple, based in a daily symbol with a strong signification
- The 'P' for paper adapted as a sign in the ergonometric shape of the chair, to be seen from far away
