The Fun Theory

This site is dedicated to the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behaviour for the better. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

    Much needed in the Margaret Morrison stairs… And the CFA stairs for that matter.

    In the first few days of “Making Things Interact”, the social implications of electronics are discussed with particular emphasis on “the Fun theory”.

    The best project, which I couldn’t find on the website, involved putting speakers in the public trash cans in Central Park. When people threw trash into the trash cans, a motion sensor would activate the speakers and play a sound mimicking a cartoonish long fall, like a long whistle.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo *thud*.

    A documentary of the project, titled Bottomless Trash Cans, that we watched in class showed people of all ages actually picking up trash around the park so they could throw it into the trash cans. Trash was apparently 82% improved over regular trash cans, with minimal power use. The mystified looks on the peoples’ faces as they tried to figure out why the trash sounded like it was falling 500 feet were priceless as well.

    I was really inspired by this particular project.
