Battery devourer

2009-12-16 18:07 - 0 Kommentarer

The idea is to incentivize the recycling of hazardous materials such as batteries, which too often end up in the regular garbage with other waste. The thought is to design special disposal containers with transparent sections, where electrical discharges appear as soon as a battery is thrown inside, creating an impression that the battery is being "disintegrated". The more visual example would not only show the individuals that batteries are not ordinary waste and should be treated differently, but also make the recycling process more exciting.

Talking Ashtray

2009-12-16 18:23 - 0 Kommentarer

Solar Powered, Talking Ashtray is designed to get people to use the ashtray instead of throwing their cigarette buts on the ground and keep the environment clean. The solar panel means that it is self contained and maintenance free (it can still be used indoors next to a window). When someone goes to stub their butt out the censor activates the voice recorder that has the following messages: Always the first message says something like: "Tsssss (sound like hot metal being cooled in water) thank you so much for using me".

Batterize

2009-12-16 16:12 - 0 Kommentarer

This is a fun way to encourage people to recycle their batteries rather than throw them in the garbage. It is a pinball machine called BATTERIZE. Instead of using money and a pinball you put a used battery into BATTERIZE and play the game with the battery. You gain points by hitting targets that are photographs of electronics which use batteries. The goal is to fully charge your 'game' battery...and you have a helping and encouraging hand from the narrator who tells you what's going on. The end result? It's a fun way to collect used batteries and dispose of them correctly.

The fun house

We take fun photos of all kind of people, and then we make an art gallery on the bridge for people to use it. Inskickat av Maria Fernanda.

Smile Therapy

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. Inskickat av Edit Tangl.

My idea for the project The Fun Theory is to solve the problem of cigarettes consumed and thrown away in parks (causing fires) or in the streets (increasing environmental pollution). I thought to encourage use of outdoor ashtray insert the typical sound of crackling wood that attracts attention and also an hologram on the surface of the ashtray. Depositing the cigarette the hologram reproduces the fire by creating fun and wonder.

Ready, Steady, Shower!

2009-12-16 09:57 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

Gum Collector

Turning something icky into something pretty. The Gum Collector is a fun way to dispose of chewed gum without making a mess. It is a user friendly device that will keep our footphaths clean and no more sticky surprises under your seat. Gum Collectors could be placed in schools, at bus stops, on the street, train stations and pretty much anywhere.

Bubble Wrap Path

People have many excuses to don't use the zebra crossing. By doing this, they put themselves, other pedestrians and drivers in danger. So how can we make the path to the traffic light more interesting causing people to walk all the way to the zebra crossing? By making it more fun.
Everybody loves popping bubble wraps. By putting footprints with eletronic sensors connected to speakers, people'd feel like they're popping it by stepping on the footprints. This way, we'd be using their fascination with bubble wrap to lead them to the crosswalk.

Transform mechanic energy of human body into electric energy and use that energy to:
1. Benefit on yourself (health/exercise, discounts in green stores..)
2. Benefit to your community (saves energy and use that money to improve the city into a sustainable one)
3. Benefit the planet (less pollution and sustainable cities)

Playing Moving

2009-12-15 21:02 - 0 Kommentarer

Playing moving is moving because it's fun, not because you have to. Playing moving are tasks/activities you can preform during your daily routine. While being at home, outside or at work. The tasks are very simple and don't cost you a lot of extra time. For example: You need to post a letter, post your letter this time by bike instead of using the car and if you already do that, next time take a postbox which is a little further. Are you in a traffic jam, do some car exercise and so on.

Social Pedometer

2009-12-16 20:05 - 0 Kommentarer

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.

Who is it?

2009-12-15 19:56 - 0 Kommentarer

How can we get children to wash their hands after using the toilet? We involve them into a quiz: When they push the soap dispenser they hear the question "Who is it?" Then, when they turn on the water for washing their hands they will here the typically sound of an animal. (The animal sound changes each time, so that they do not automatically know the answer) After washing the hands for 30 seconds they will get the answer (the name of the animal). If they wash their hands too short they do not get the answer.

Race to the top!

Stairs nowadays are usually accompanied by adjacent escalators/elevators. They're mostly intended for the disabled though many have adopted the 'why walk when you can ride' mentality. Well let's give them a reason to exercise. Have a big red button which is to be pressed at the bottom of the staircase and another similar one at the top (people love pushing buttons, especially when they don't know its function). The button at the bottom activates a hidden stopwatch and the button on top stops the stopwatch. An LED display will show the final time of the persons hike up the stairs.

Ferris bicycle

People don’t get enough exercise and people need energy so if you have lots of bicycles, a ferris wheel, cords, control booth, a energy storage and a lot of people/passersby you could make a ferris wheel that’s powered by bikes and than all of the the extra energy goes to a storage and then when the storage is filled (or mostly filled) a car comes and transports it to someplace that needs it!

Gun Trash

2009-12-16 13:32 - 0 Kommentarer

Problem: The problem in the United States is that a lot of people don’t throw the trash were it belong. They don’t care if the trash is every where. We need to do something so they can throw the trash were it needs to go. We have to do something fun that we can do to help our country. It is so important that we do something so our country would not look like a big trash in the whole world. Almost all the people who live in the United States don’t want to help to throw the trash in the trash can. So I got an idea for this problem.

Why do pedestrians spent time on traffic lights?
- Because they have to...
Do they enjoy this? - Probably not...
So, why not turning wasted time, standing around and waiting, into an interactive game, which keeps up your fitness and rewards you for your patience?
Crossroadfitnessfunlight is a playful light- & soundinstallation in public space. Watch the video! :)

Have a look at our website: http://puplik.org/crossroadfitnessfunlight.html.
There is also an explanation with pictures too.

Sink Water Light

2009-12-16 19:32 - 0 Kommentarer

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".

Over the Weather

2009-12-15 23:32 - 0 Kommentarer

Over the weather. How to make bad weather fun? Location : Copenhagen, but the project is adaptable to other cities Description: Weather changes. And we can feel this change, as the temperature drops, the rain starts to drip, the winds starts howling. We notice the change, and it affects our lives in many ways. In Copenhagen, everyone is worried about the weather and everybody talks about it. It’s a recurrent subject, more than in other cities, because here, the weather is changing so often. Due of the proximity of the sea, there is a lot of wind, especially when the seasons are changing.

Recycling Hockey Table

The recycling hockey table purpose is to make people to throw their empty cans in the correct bin in order to recycle them. The difference with this table is that you can play and get fun with a can before you throw it away; the can will be the disc and when you score it will go to a close deposit in the table’s bottom.
