Tackles two important issues of modern society, environment and sedentarism. Imagine a park with loads of gymnastic bikes put to common usage, would be nice right ?It gets better though, all the bikes are connected to a electric generator, which supplies the park energy usage, so by exercising you are helping to save some electricity!=D Submitted Bruno Galli Miranda.

Would you rather bus?

2021-11-30 11:13 - 0 Comments

Public transportation reduces traffic as well as greenhouse gas emissions. So then, let's make them more FUN, with built in "Would You Rather" questions. Every minute or two, passengers will see a different question across the upper bus wall, asking them to choose which of two options "they would rather." They vote by pressing the red/blue button on their seat, and shortly after, a red or blue light above their seat will indicate their vote. All the votes will be tallied, with the final percentages lit up beside each of the two answer options.

The Presence of Digital Money

2021-11-30 11:27 - 0 Comments

Credit cards make life so much more easier that you do not have to carry stacks of moneys any more. Every time when you buy something the only thing you use is just a piece of card. But sometimes it also makes consumption unreasonable. People lost the sense of physical money. I created some new concepts of credit cards to remind people that digital money also has the similar physical attribute as the old money. They are not just numbers. You can feel it so that you can try to control your consumption.

Speaking Bin

You throw your garbage in a bin and you hear a voice coming from inside: -Thank you and have a nice day. or some sounds like pig is eating your garbage. But people would get more surprised if two bins can make a real conversation. Can you imagine two bins in a short distance. Suddenly a voice coming from inside: -This town is full of nice people only today this is the 50th man coming tome. And there is a voice from the other bin: -Don't be show off my friend only for last hour I collect more garbage than you.

Emotional collective calendar

2021-11-30 12:24 - 0 Comments

We have created a kind of "emotional collective calendar", where anybody can "stop" a minute of his life and last it forever! It's totally free: link to the website www.stopyourtime.com , register to it, and stop every minute you want, adding photos, videos, mp3s. You can also gift a minute to somebody you love, your friends, your relatives, your parents. It's a costless project and we realized people's dream: last time forever!

Piano Crosswalk

2021-11-30 12:31 - 0 Comments

As a method of deterring jaywalking (crossing the street out of the crosswalk), make the crosswalk like a piano (similar to the staircase already done). To make it so people don't stay in the crosswalk, make it stop working when the light changes to "DON'T WALK" and start working again for the next cycle. This should make people want to cross the street in the right place at the right time. Hopefully people can continue to cross streets safely to decrease the number of people that get hit by cars.

Better Car Horns

2021-11-30 13:35 - 0 Comments

People use their car horns for all sorts of messages: Celebrating after a sports match, telling a friend "I'm here" when sitting outside his house, saying "Thank you" to another driver who has let you drive first over a one-lane bridge or saying "Good bye" to family as they wave to you. Yet in every case, we use the same, purposefully-dissonant sound to express each message. This results in both noise pollution and ambiguity. I propose that we add a second horn to each new car and truck sold: A horn that is euphonious, not dissonant, one that plays a major third or major fifth.

The notion behind this design is to make revolving doors fun to use, as they are far more environmentally friendly than the widely used automatic sliding doors. Revolving doors are not just environmentally friendly because they can be powered manually as opposed to automatically; they also offer excellent protection against draughts and heat loss due to the nature of their design. In this design, the central core of the revolving door is attached to the drive shaft of a traditional music box. The music box is mechanical and therefore requires no external electricity to power it.

Gotcha - Overspeeding Device

2021-11-30 14:04 - 0 Comments

Imagine every car you see on road is fitted with a little device I would like to name “Gotcha”!! This is like a black box which is hidden away in every car (will be good fun trying to find it!) . “Gotcha” is nothing more than a combination of receiver and sender unit with inbuilt GPS. The receiver unit of “Gotcha” receives a signal from a tower (similar to mobile network tower) which constantly sends road speed and location data to all vehicles in its range.

Many young adults spend a lot of their time playing video games. What if you could actually learna by achieving objectives in games? Instead of only earning points you could also grow in knowledge. The video game industry in general should focus on games being more of a learning platform than a solely entertainment platform. The software should be developed by the gaming console companies and should be entirely open-source, in terms of content that could be incorporated into the games.

The machine will take any kind (and color) of plastic bags. It will compress them towards the walls of a transparent bin tube. the bin will also be in various shapes (animals, cars, trees etc) There will be a whole line of shapes for the bins, so that in each location it will be different and new! When enough plastic bags are thrown inside, a colorful statue will be created.

Bubbling Traffic Lights

2021-11-30 15:16 - 0 Comments

Usually people are always impatient and in a hurry. When they have to wait for the traffic lights to change in the corner,.. well at times they don't do it at all, and if there are no cars nearby, they cross the street, sometimes not even trough the crosswalk. Also cars sometimes don't stop before the crosswalk, blocking the way to people. So the idea is to make the pedestrians wait for the traffic light to turn to red, to make them walk over the crosswalk, and to encourage cars to not stop over the crosswalk.

A “I bet you can’t “ campaign to spread over the most different issues, such as doing more exercise but also taking care of the environment. Fun is game, game is challenge. People are much more intrigued and motivated if they are ‘teased’. Messages can be displayed on car hangers, stickers, sidewalk signs, public toilets, etc.

A simple, inexpensive and direct idea to make people more active during ‘dead’ times. Think of all the wasted time you spend commuting, stuck in traffic, buses and trains... Springs can be replacing handles or hang together with them, also they could be attached to the bus walls and will be accompanied by fun messages that invite people to try them out. You could also use special strenght-measurer handles, (already existing in the market), to make it more fun!
