Bicycle Path Race Circuit

2021-12-16 19:23 - 0 Comments

People that use bicycle for transportation don't always use the paths ment for them to circulate. Making it fun to use it not only will prevent accidents to people that already use bicycles for transportation but it will encourage people who don't to start using it. We can make it fun by putting obstacles like it was a race circuit, like bumps, zig-zag curves, tiny ramps. Going further we could even have leds that will lit when you pass over them like videogame's turbos. The path could be painted with paint that glow in the dark, so i'll be funner by night.

Well, the problem of tha trash cans is sometimes they are "invisible"!
Making them "visible" can be the challenge to clean our parks or streets.. u know.
everytime crossing the line which is asking "any trash?" is like our mother asking everytime: did u clean your hands? and the design by itself is so easy to understand, so familiar to the generations..

Sink Water Light

2021-12-16 19:28 - 0 Comments

Both of the idea authors admire taking a shower, not together though :) However, we have rarely thought of how much water we usually consume ineffectively by spending 30 min under the shower. After discussing this issue with other "shower-lovers" it became obvious that the primary reason for spending 30min in the shower is the lack of any time reminders around. To solve this problem and to make keeping time more fun to do, we decided to introduce a "traffic light" system for the sink or the shower, but call it "water light".

Colourful meal

Kids are eating less vegetables and more meat and fast food products. These refined foods are bad both for the organism and because of the intensive resources they require. This behavior should be changed towards eating more fruits, vegetables and less refined products, from a young age.

This is way kind should be motivated to eat vegetables. The idea is to let the kid choose what to eat and then give him/her pencils, in each of the colors of the chosen foods, and a contour figure to color. Varied food intake, more colors for drawing!

Garden's hit

2021-12-16 19:31 - 0 Comments

Dog's feces in the streets stink. Literally. And still, some dog owners don't throw at the trash can. So, let's give them a reason to do it. Let's show them that it could be useful if put at the right place.
The Garden's hit is where they'll see what some poo can do. Throwing it at the specified place activates a mechanism that releases a plastic rose everytime something hits the engines under the garden. Then, a flower "grows". There are 50 of them, that go down again after some minuts. This way everybody can enjoy making a plant growing. Just have to make the poo hit the garden.

The People Counter

In using fun to make people help each other, we asked the question, can we get people to hold a door open for other people?

With "The People Counter", motion sensors and sound will be used to get people to continue holding the door open for others. Once another person walks through the door, sensors will react and cause audio to play. The audio will give the person holding the door a simple reminder to help others, in a fun and new way

The mobility of people around the world is unimaginable nowadays. People manage to travel across countries and continents within hours with lowest rates ever. Does this bring only benefits? Not really - as it was recently shown by the spread speed of the swine-flu disease. One of the methods to fight similar illnesses is to wear a flu-fighting mask. However, opinion polls show that only 5% use this protection method, while more than 36% think that people wearing these masks look like hypochondriacs.

What do you while you are waiting for a bus or in metro?
What do you think about moving your body and engaging in group activities?
A healthy mind is in a healthy body .. with so much around us we spare less time to work out and do not move our bodies a lot. On the other hand, with all those calculators , we are not using our minds to make those simple calculations ..
So let's make good use of the time and make the waiting fun , and turn calculations into a semi-dancing activity:

Cigarette Doormat

People tend to pass doormats in public entrances without actively cleaning their shoes. This is a problem, especially in winter, since the shoes are more dirty during the rainy season.
What would you do if a cigarette set afire a carpet? Extinguish it as fast as possible! We used this knee-jerk action to intensify the cleaning of shoe soles and give people a funny experience.
But the glow does not end. The cigarette butt is made of solid material, lit by a red LED and a thin column of smoke ascends from it. A surprise effect!

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.

The main idea is to encourage people to donate used books using fun, music and interactivity!

A collecting depository will be installed on a very crowded street or avenue. On the top of the machine, a big and wide LCD screen with cameras shows the message bellow.

“Books are light and imagination. Share them and be a star!”

When a book is deposited, the donor chooses a kind of music (jazz, rock, pop, mambo, classic, etc.). After pressing the rhythm button, music starts and the image of the public is displayed by the LCD Screen.

People are often standing still during the day, waiting. We wait in the supermarket queue, at the bus stop and in the metro. Facing utter boredom, wouldn't it be great if we could "have a ball"? Virtual Ball helps people to do some exercise by offering an interactive mirror that augments the user's environment with virtual balls. There are no rules, just simple balls that create endless possibilities for play!

Many people prefers to get downtown by car and traffic raises the level of pollution.

How to convince people to park their car outside the urban belt and use the public transportation system to get downtown? And, focusing on the car park lot, is it possible to make the car parking more fun?

What about using cars instead pressing step sequencer buttons to create an high-scale step-sequencer with dynamic light and musical effects? This would bring drivers to say: "OK, there's a free lot there, let's park my car onto and see what happens."

Lots of parents start involving their children, from an early stage, in different sport activities such as swimming, trekking, climbing. And we all know, in climbing, kids have a special wall arranged for them, with different accessories and helpful supports.

What if, instead of the wall we use a large replica of Planet Earth?
- the mountains chains and volcanoes would come out in relief
- the climbing supports would be fixed in the same places where the mountain peeks are situated on the map

Social Pedometer

By using competition and social networking, we can make walking places more fun, encouraging fitness and a reduced reliance on cars for short trips. This is a pedometer (step-counter) that can be either an application for a smart phone or a separate USB device. It counts your steps through the day, then uploads them automatically to a website that tracks everyone's steps. On the website, you can compete against others, as well as create groups to compete against each other groups, so your office or school could have competitions within itself and with other schools and organizations.
