The Vending Machine Project

2021-12-04 09:40 - 0 Comments

Our entry is a sweets vending machine that teaches social responsibility. It gives you the choice of how much you pay. The amount you pay doesn't affect the amount of sweets you get, but the amount of sweets the next people will get. The change is small but cumulative. If people are selfish and pay less money, at the end of the day the machine will be dispensing a very small amount of sweets. If people work for the greater good, at the end of the day they'll be getting lots of sweets for their money. Inskickad av Euan Mils.

People are crossing the streets and ignoring the traffic lights every day. Why? Maybe they don't have much time, they don't care or they just don't want to wait. Probably because it's no fun to wait. But what if there is a fun way to wait? This is where the "concert-traffic-light" comes in. In front of a traffic light there is a floor sticker with electrical sensors underneath. Each sensor stands for a position in an orchestra, e.g. a violin. By standing on one sensor this particular instrument begins to play.

Falling Tower of Pisa

Every year millions of batteries get thrown into the garbage. It creates tons of garbage and the heavy metals contaminate the ground water. Batteries can easily be recycled, but not everyone does that. The solution is to make it fun to return batteries by using the children’s game ‘Tower of Pisa’. The goal of the game. The player has to add as many batteries to the different levels of the tower. Since the bottom of the tower has a slightly rounded form, the tower has a tendency to tip over if it is not properly balance.

Worth the walk

Worth the walk

Everyone wants the best parking spot. Typically, the best spot is closest to the destination (the mall, the park, the school, the gym). This simple idea rewards those drivers who park furthest from the destination. They get protection from sunlight, rain or snow, keeping their car cool and dry. What's more, they get energy from the extra exercise and fresh air they receive walking to their destination. This canopy would span the back parking spaces of the parking lot. It could be used for advertising space for either the destination or for major marketers.

Sticking to the speed limit. Nobody likes to do that! Why go slow when you can go fast? Of course driving fast is dangerous, with governments implementing speed limits as a result. And there is no reward for good driving, only penalties for bad driving! What this system does is encourage safe driving while making it fun, and rewarding drivers for sticking to the speed limit. How it works is that software is developed that integrates with Sat Navs - and/or takes the form of a standalone device.

Vending machines are popular in many countries around the world, but most of them sell soda and junk food. Besides being unhealthy, the bottles, cups and cans take time and money to recycle. Let’s encourage people to start reducing disposables at the source. How about a vending machine that sells healthy drinks to those who bring their own reusable bottles or mugs? The vending machine also sells reusable bottles or mugs to those who do not happen to have one with them. Whenever a customer places a bottle or mug on the dispenser, the machine will sense it and say “thank you! You are awesome!

Every time you reuse this bottle (each time it is filled up again) a dimention of the art changes and the image gets more complex. The first time you use the bottle, a square appears, second time is 2 squares, each acting as individual pixles. It becomes less abstract each time it is used. This will encourage people to keep the same bottle for years just to see the imege change and grow into a piece of art. Reduce, reuse. Submitted by Jenna Meath.

Changing jokes every day on the board above the path; 2.

Have you ever noticed how slippery the floors in public buildings get when it rains? No one really takes the time to dry their shoes. Our Interactive Rain Mat changes that by making the boring activity of drying your feet into a fun game. As you step on the mat, a little face appears beneath your feet and challenges you to step on it. Whenever you put your foot down, the face moves to another spot on the mat, accompanied by sound effects.

Statistics show that Americans alone devour over 400 million cups of coffee daily, going through 400 million paper cups in the process. Dumping, recycling or filling up landfills with these cups is a waste of time, energy and money. As a way to change people’s behavior and outlook on reusable mugs, institute a fun system where each reusable mug is assigned a coffee code, enabling them to win 1 of 10 daily prizes in every coffee shop, ranging from a muffin, scone or other pastry to a larger monthly prize. Not sold on using mugs from the shop? Have a favorite mug?

Public washrooms are not generally places known for being pleasant or hygienic. Part of the problem is people neglecting to flush the toilet after they have finished their business. This device will encourage toilet flushing with prompts and a prize (of the non-tangible variety). When a person enters the stall, a screen above the toilet will pose a question. These can range from riddles to true or false questions. The answer to the question will only appear once the toilet has been flushed (triggered by a cord, attached to the device).
