Interactive Crosswalk

2009-12-03 12:34 - 0 Kommentarer

Waiting at crosswalks frustrates all of us, more or less often. We're all in a rush at sometimes and don't feel like waiting. But lots of accidents happen because of jaywalking. How can we make waiting at crosswalks more fun? My idea involves pressure sensitive devices, resembling piano keys but in differing colors, and speakers alongside the crosswalk as shown in the picture. The rules of the 'game' are as follows: people waiting can step on one of the bar-shaped devices (or they can choose not to stand on any of the 'bars').

Downtown, there are many public places which have become so famous that they people use them as meeting spots. No problem so far. Every person who come here is waiting and doing things in order to make minutes pass. There is also no problem in the fact that the main activities people do while waiting are chewing gum and smoking cigarettes.

Many people in the world they do not unplug the chargers of the cell phones, When people don't disconnect their charges they are consuming a lot of energy is not being used.
Solution:
It is making fun to do it. so making by putting a special voice recognition box in the charger when the people sing for the charger it will disconnect by itself and you can also do it from long distance

During their travel by train many passengers throw garbage through the windows instead of the bin.
Let’s discourage this habit by "encouraging” the same gesture with another destination!

Happy Waiting

2009-11-07 20:51 - 0 Kommentarer

I'm waiting in line and getting bored with nothing to do and I don't dare to small talk to the people around me. The line is very long at the postoffice/ bank/ waitingroom/ hospital/ busstop ... and the clock is ticking very slowly. Waiting on my turn seems to take forever.

I - and all the people around me - like to take pictures with their cellphones on holidays, special occasions or just for no special reason. We can upload these to a local network connected to a video-projector that is showing the pictures very big on the wall.

Recycling Zoo

2009-12-16 10:49 - 0 Kommentarer

Recycling is very important. However making recycling actions is still not the nr. 1. trend in my country. Maybe we could promote recycling if we could make it more fun: through Recycling Zoo (RZ) for example. In Budapest we handle five types of garbage, so at the moment there are five resident of RZ. Each animal has an individual solution to absorb garbage.

We can increase fun factor by"
1. Transform wooden animal plates into monkey bars (e.g. elephant’s fangs or turtle heads are perfect steps)

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!

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!

Many people read comics rather than reading dictionaries.. However, dictionary has more useful informations. So if we make the dictionary that is talking when we filp the page,or touching the book, than many people will rather read dictionary than comics. Submitted by Mom.

Mimes for Better Traffic

2009-12-16 20:12 - 0 Kommentarer

Many drivers and pedestrians don’t respect simple traffic laws because they consider that they aren’t misbehaving since they aren't breaking important safety laws like crossing with red lights or surpassing the speed maximum. Showing people through humour the small infractions to the law they make can make them realice the important of their mistakes and help them become better citizens. The most common small infractions are: stopping their car over a pedestrian crossing, talking over the cellphone while driving or crossing the street walking through the forbidden places.

Public Water

The Solution & Design Concept
The redesigned public waterspout is free filtered tap water and easy to use. The spout is covered so there is no way one can touch the area where the water is dispensed to prevent the chance of contamination. To cut out even more germs, there is a “say when” mechanism that releases the water. Inside of the aqueduct inspired design is a filtering system connected to standard tap water pipes. The filtering system will be changed routinely by local state employees to guarentee freshness and quality.

The territory of a crossing

2009-11-19 14:21 - 0 Kommentarer

Following the philosophy of the fun theory, I propose to remake contemporary crossings in such a way that everybody would like to use them for crossing the road. This crossing, however, can be replaced by another crossing. Imagine you are in the Amazon rainforest and in front of you is an abyss with a wild river at the bottom. One way to get to the other side is to cross a liana bridge just in front of you. You have no other way because there are crocodiles down there. Who of us is not an adventurer?

Musical Rake

2009-11-24 16:28 - 0 Kommentarer

How about a rake that plays music only when you are raking leaves or other debris. It can play at various tempos and beats depending on how hard or fast the rake is being pulled against the ground. It could have many different setting, so that you can make multiple musical notes. A great way to get exercise while doing yardwork at the sametime in a fun way.

Enter Mr Potato Peel. This charming fellow is a plastic cover for a collection bucket, with silly face parts that can be added and changed (Mr. Potato Head style). He keeps the food waste out of sight and scent -- and when his mouth door is opened, the lucky composter hears a recording of the words for various fruits and vegetables in foreign languages. Fun AND educational!

Very simple: you want some electricity? Pedal! But attention, you do not create any electricity, fact of pedalling just acts as a switch (the bike is connected with a classic grip): if I pedal, the current crosses, i stop, the current stop. A coffee, music, my favorite serial: I pedal. Slowly, fast, profoundly, it is as I want. The sport is good for the health. Inskickad av Gilles Bonifait.

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.

It is known, the expenses on the separate collection of utilized packaging is bigger than the cost of accepted products. The producers are generally needed to increase the cost of packaging increasing the cost of product that will in its turn increase the interest of population to return the raw materials to the producers. But this leads to the reducing of consumer demand.
