Used Batteries Pinball

2021-11-19 14:06 - 0 Comments

Problem tackled: Collecting batteries to recycle them.
Solution: The device, a used-batteries collector, takes advantage of the form factor of a pinball to engage people into playing. Batteries replace metal balls. Pulling on and releasing the lever propulse the battery onto the playfield. Multiple boards could be adapted. The hole to target is indicated to the player through a visual cue. The goal is to reach the target by applying the appropriate force on the lever.

Stub out the light

2021-11-19 14:06 - 0 Comments

Problem tackled: reducing the cigarette litter in front of public places. Solution: inspired from a game played with 3 paper cups and a ball in which the dealer hides the ball under one of the cup and then swaps the cups, and the player has to guess where the ball is. The device is an ashtray with 3 holes and 3 diodes. The diodes light on alternatively along random sequences of 2 or 3 seconds. By the end of the sequence the player has to stub out his cigarette in the hole whose diode lighted on last. Heat sensors in the three holes allow to determine whether the player wins.

The territory of a crossing

2021-11-19 14:18 - 0 Comments

Following the philosophy of the fun theory, I propose to remake contemporary crossings in such a way that everybody would like to use them for crossing the road. This crossing, however, can be replaced by another crossing. Imagine you are in the Amazon rainforest and in front of you is an abyss with a wild river at the bottom. One way to get to the other side is to cross a liana bridge just in front of you. You have no other way because there are crocodiles down there. Who of us is not an adventurer?

Smile Therapy

2021-11-19 14:20 - 0 Comments

So many gloomy faces can be seen nowadays on bus, tram, we can meet angry car drivers and rushing masses on the streets. One smile can break this negative wave. Smiling is good to our body and soul, and it also generates a chain reaction: if you smile to someone, he will instinctively smile back. The theory is that a chocolate automat is working with smile. The core of the automat is a face recognizing software that decides if someone smiles or not. Also with this program only one chocolate per person could be given. Submitted by Edit Tangl.

Video Hand Washing

2021-11-19 14:34 - 0 Comments

Since it is time of the major flu outbreak, hand washing has become such an important daily habit. Not only is it important to just wash your hands, but to wash them longer than 30 seconds which many fail to do. In light to this, it would be great if the mirror in front of us started to move and alter our physical features as soon as we turn on the tap. When pressing to get soap for it turns to colors so that we can see our selves in black and white as well as inverted colors etc. As soon as the tap is turned off the mirror would go back to normal.

Lock your seatbelt and win a prize!!! It results very negative and boring for the common citizen being obligued by the law to wear the seatbelt when driving their cars, but what if wearing the seatbelt becomes a fun thing to do? With this program every time you wear a seatbelt, the click system counts it, and when you get to a determined number, suprise!!! The counter sounds like a jackpot and you get a text from your insurance company telling you that you have an special gift waiting at the service station.

Dance Mat Water Fountain

2021-11-19 14:55 - 0 Comments

My idea for an invention is a huge interactive dance mat located at a park. The massive dance mat would play music for people to dance to and as you danced or stepped on the mat, it would active large water fountains that would squirt up water. Obviously the only way for the fountains to work would be if someone stepped or danced on the mat. People would also have access to the fountains and be able to walk or run through the fountains for fun.

Freecycling is a fantastic way to pay it forward and to keep unused clothes from becoming landfill. The Karma Kalculator makes donating used clothes fun. It dispenses a fortune cookie style fortune to "predict" the good that will coming to them for the good that they have done.

Recycling for music

2021-11-19 15:09 - 0 Comments

The idea is to build a machine that gave you a free code to download music from iTunes. Provided only if you comply with the minimum of cans to be deposited. My proposal would be 10 cans per song. In this way we would be helping the planet and and promoting through the opinion leaders (which are the artists) recycling.

Musical Rake

2021-11-19 15:13 - 0 Comments

How about a rake that plays music only when you are raking leaves or other debris. It can play at various tempos and beats depending on how hard or fast the rake is being pulled against the ground. It could have many different setting, so that you can make multiple musical notes. A great way to get exercise while doing yardwork at the sametime in a fun way.

Mr Greedy - Ticket Machine

Driver don’t want to spend any money to park a car. Therefore, the ticket machine is redesigned into a poker- ticket machine, in order to change the drivers´ attitude of using it. Drivers´ who parks a car has a chance to win extra parking time for free. Since the primary parking fee is charged to park and play the poker -ticket machine, the driver is not losing anything at all.

Tinkle Target

Little boys need some fun. Especially when they go number one. A target for aiming the stream will keep the floor just a bit more clean. I suggest even upping the ante, and have sensors in the target where the longer they can "Keep their aim" the more points they get... Points that can get them some sort of reward.

Hang Your Hat

Hang Your Hat

2021-11-19 15:50 - 0 Comments

I bolted an ordinary coat rack on busy city street corner in a mid-sized midwestern town. When the weather turned cold i began to randomly hang warm gloves and hats on the rack. These items would be gone by the next day. The coat rack entitled "Hang Your Hat" began to collect usable items from other generous passers by. Yet each item hung on the rack was gone the next day. The idea of putting a piece of furniture on the street brings light to the fact that there are people that live on the streets and are homeless.

About 30% of people dont wash there hands after going to the bathroom. So creating a musical sink would be a fun way to start having people wash there hands. When you turn the fauset music would start playing and once you turned it off the music would stop.

Problem: People tend to throw rubbish on the streets instead of garbage bins.

Fun Solution: To make throwing rubbish as fun as playing basketball we want to add a scoring machine and detector to the garbage bin. So, for every piece of rubbish that goes into the garbage bin, you get 2 points.

Problem:
Almost everywhere around the world, people tend to compete to get a seat in public transports.
Fun Solution:
To provide a few of Screen MP3, Radio or Video players (with internet connection), hanging on buses’ or train walls, attached together with a headset on each player. It’s placed quite high, so people need to stand up to use the device. In that way, standing will look more pleasing than sitting.

Nowadays the swine flu spreads all ways. But the face mask is not a fashion piece. This is for those who like to be more individual in any case.
The printing on the mask can imitate stylish materials as well as bring funny motives.
