Hand Washing Labyrinth

2009-11-24 16:11 - 0 Kommentarer

Many people like to walk in the park and eat without washing their hands. This is clearly a hygienic issue. The solution: Place hand washing labyrinths in the parks. A person must find his/her way through the labyrinth to reach the different stages of hand washing like soaping, washing and drying.

Polite Car Spoiler

2009-11-17 12:26 - 0 Kommentarer

My idea is to use a rear end auto LED sign to promote polite visual driving language while in your car. Imagine a series of polite words that indicate your intent to turn left or to turn right, and thank others afterwards. Such politeness could change the way we interpret another drivers intent and could avoid prevent a lot of road rage.

Container Disco

2009-12-15 21:48 - 0 Kommentarer

Dressed up as a garbage man i travel through the city and play my Container Disco on different spots without announcing it. I want to reach people the possibility to participate in something spontaneous. I call it 'spontaneouslize' the city.

Peoples reaction:
- 'Do you want to play on my wedding?'
- Man on phone: 'Honey, come over here...to the Container Disco!'
- 'Can i subscribe somewhere to get a message when and where you play?'
- 'Shell i get you a drink?'

Cigarettes gravebin

2009-12-15 21:10 - 0 Kommentarer

Since cigarette butts are a big problem today, as it represent more than half of the litter thrown in the streets , I propose to make a “cigarette cemetery”. This means that there will be small bins that can be attached to the street lamps, garbage bins, traffic lights or panels from the bus stops. After you smoke a cigarette (you kill the cigarette) it would be nice to burry it in the “gravebin”. So when you throw the cigarette butt it should be played a part from the funeral song, or a voice could say “may it rest in peace”, “it was a good cig” and other things like this.

Leaf Launcher

2009-12-16 13:26 - 0 Kommentarer

The Leaf Launcher is a device that loads leaves into the leaf launcher bag and launches them out of your yard. After the bag is full and totally compressed, you the slide the lid on. You can then aim through the telescope on top and pull the trigger. The leaves will go flying up to 30 feet. It depends on the wind and if the leaves are wet, though. When the leaf launcher bag is empty, you fill it up again and do the process over again. For storage the bag clips off and the stand folds up. The Leaf Launcher is a fun way to rid your yard of leaves and simple to use! Inskickat av Chase Tucker

Dunk N' Dump Bin

2009-12-16 18:15 - 0 Kommentarer

Collection of garbage is a serious problem faced in Indian Urban areas. The lack of seriousness for channelizing the urban solid waste may well be associated with the lower density of the dustbins, but giving a reason to throw the waste into a bin could only be good for the cause. The design can potentially be attractive particularly for the younger generation, developing garbage throwing skills to showcase accuracy in the throwing arm. For those who prefer dropping the garbage in conventional way, a rectangular slot has been provided as well.

Payback Trash can

It is a funny way to help people to throw the trash in the cans instead of the floor- in case if you are mad at your boss, this is a trash can that can be put in companies, and work areas.

Art for your sole

It's art you can walk on! It would be like going to an art gallery with sunshine, bird song and in comfortable sneakers! I am proposing this installation as a means to get people active. It would manifest itself in the form of a locked glass-top box embedded into the ground with artwork inside. These could be fitted on popular and even obscure walking trails in and around the city that draw people back to walk them again and again to see what’s new.

The Dog Poo Bank

The Dog Poo Bank

2009-12-09 12:25 - 0 Kommentarer

Many people take their dogs for a walk but don’t catch the dog poo. It requires an intervention that makes catching dog poo something funny. The “Poo Cleaner Bank” allows the dog’s owner to make different investments when he deposits the poo. Every time the owner deposits a bag with poo (it has to be analyzed to verify if it really is dog poo), he will receive a token, which will be exchanged for a cookie for the dog. Besides, many other investments are possible if the owner keep the tokens to change later.

Basketball Bin

The striking simplicity of this installation proves that the combination of sports and waste disposal is an effective and fun way to change people's behaviour to better. During a couple of days of filming, our Basketball Bin disposal unit was widely appreciated and used by the customers of a nearby fastfood restaurant. The installation consists of a readymade Basketball bin, wood and a trashbag with masking tape net-decor. Inskickat av Sascha Nelle, Simon Frambach and Rosa Heinz.

Guitar Eco Bag

Eco-friendly Bags are available since long in the markets. However, the use of such bags has been quite low owing to the low emotional value of the bags. for this reason tote bag with guitar graphic has been designed. This serves the dual purpose- one that of use of eco-friendly bags and the other, that of the bag being popular amongst youth and fun to carry.

Step-sequencer car park

2009-12-16 19:55 - 0 Kommentarer

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."

Road Darts

2009-12-09 14:28 - 0 Kommentarer

Slow Down, Hit The Bullseye, Save Lives. Road Darts can be played anywhere. However, due to the problem of slowing people down too much in a congested area, it is recommended to do testing of Road Darts in a busier residential area first to see if it scales. Metrics -A researcher can monitor the proposed location during busy hours for a defined period (24 hrs) using a radar detection device w/o revealing his or her presence. This creates a control. -Then a traditional speed detection device (that displays the current speed numerically) should be placed at the location.

The idea is to print funny quotes, jokes, or any other funny message on a floor sticker and then apply it where people stand to form a queue (i.e. in front of money tills, ATMs, airport check-in desks, etc). Benefits: - People will have something funny and enjoyable to spend their time with, while waiting in a queue (queuing will become less boring). - People reading these messages will become more relaxed and less frustrated, hence will smile more.

Cykelbuss

2009-10-27 11:47 - 0 Kommentarer

Folk föredrar ofta att ta bussen även om man bara ska en liten sträcka som man lika gärna kunde ha gått. På så sätt missar man den extra motion man skulle ha fått.

Om man skulle skapa en cykelbuss som ser ut som en vanlig buss men har trampor under alla säten skulle man både bidra till att fler motionerade samt att utsläppen skulle bli noll.

When you read, the eyes needs to go from the end of each line back to start of the next line, covering that ground without picking up any words. When reading, like you are now, gathering information from symbols placed on paper, could you pick up information on your way back from the last line? It would be like watching television without commercials, smooth sure gliding the whole way.

Chewing Gum Sculpture

2009-12-15 18:02 - 0 Kommentarer

Each Spaniard consumes 3 kilos of chewing gum every year. The cost of removing each one of these rises up to 0.68 cents, more than twice its purchase cost. That’s why we propose a funny campaign to prevent people from littering chewing gum. Goal: To prevent people from littering chewing gum and put it in a common place instead, so that the streets of the city remain clean. How? The idea is to create huge, collective sculptures with people’s chewing gum.

Balanced stairways

2009-11-24 16:18 - 0 Kommentarer

The idea consists in using gravity to make an escalator without using electrical energy.
It can be used in a place where people want to go up and down, like the entrance of a subway.
We concentrate people that want to go down in a platform, then the people that want to go up stay in another platform .

These platforms are connected by pulleys in order to guarantee that the weight of people wanting to go down will generate enough potential energy to move the platform with people that want to go up.

The balance can be upheld by cords, that people can pull to control the movement.

Recycled Vending Machine

In some countries people don't see an immediate benefit from recycling. Here I present to you the new Soda Recycling-Vending Machine that will allow everybody to purchase a new icy soda by paying with their old cans! How it works? Once the machine has confirmed that is in fact a soda can (and no plastic or glass bottles for example) and the consumer has selected the drink, the old can goes to the inner container, the mechanism activates and the buyer gets a nice icy and refreshing soda!
