  1. This video is definitely inspiring and impressing. The whole idea is original and is full of innovation. This video implies that when something is both, original and innovative, it is highly likely to stimulate consumers’ purchasing power leading to huge income being generated as a result.

  2. This video is the perfect one to describe and explain the real meaning of creativity. He invented a new funny way to force people keep their used bottles to recycle them. This method is really interesting and beneficial. It is also implemented in any place. We should try to use this method in developing countries. it will have great impact on them in all fields. I found this quote for Carl Jung is really interesting in this topic.”Without the playing with fantasy no creative work has ever yet come to birth. The debt we owe to the play of imagination is incalculable.”

  3. Simplicity and creativity are both combined in this inspiring video.This video proved to me that everyone is capable of implementing whatever crazy or fun idea that pops right to their mind without any sort of prejudgment. This brilliant idea motivated people to recycle and reuse wasted resources in a very appealing way. This resulted in people being environmentally friendly which is a vivid sign to positive behavior.

  4. The video is so exciting and it reflects the practical part of creativity. The idea is creative because it is new and useful, besides the fun in the project finds a reaction with people. People react with the project only because of the fun it has and not the idea of recycling. In my opinion, if we want to solve problems related to peoples’ behavior or the environment, the solution must include any fun or exciting games, and the results will be positive. Also, all people like funny and exciting games, so this way of creative ideas will work all over the world to solve any problems. Fun is not a culture or behavior of one people, it is a fact in all human beings. I hope that all countries try to solve its problems by using these creative and funny ideas, so that people can help in solving the problem and have fun.

  5. This video really inspired me. it shows how you could solve a problem by such a very simple thing which is fun. This idea uses fun to attract people and push them to contribute in the recycling process . it is a very creative idea and as the definition of creativity states ” creative ideas should be novel , original and useful.” this recycling tool fits to this definition.

  6. I think everyone agrees how creative and new this is. The ones who created it truly know the meaning of creativity and how to deliver their message in a way that people will like. People nowadays respond better to ideas that contain fun elements and games. So it is very smart that they picked that because they knew how much it will attract people. It makes people learn more about recyling and maybe even adopt the valuable habit due to this game. I would love to see such thing in egypt. People will definitely like it and it will attract them into solving their problems and issues in societies in a fun and creative way.

  7. I think this video is very interesting. This video illustrates that thinking creatively no matter how silly an idea may sound may lead to successful inventions that not only benefit you but also your society and many other societies in general (depending on the invention). This video, after being presented to us in class, totally changed my perspective on thinking creatively as it taught me that the silliest ideas that come to my mind could actually be the most innovative once implemented. Clearly, the scamper method was truly helpful and this video proves that it could be implemented in many different life situations whether personal,social or related to business matters.

  9. The video is really inspiring, it shows how people can come up with an idea that might sound naive/stupid/non-beneficial..etc but it is in fact brilliant! They tackled an important problem using a creative method, they thought about it in a new way. They actually analyzed the reasons of the problem and they came with a solution by simply adding “fun” to it. I guess through the steps of solving this problem SCAMPER/PACME techniques can be used in order to generate masses of ideas, modify them, and ended up with this brilliant idea and this shows the great effect of these techniques.

  10. This amazing video illustrates that people have the ability to accept the new ideas and habits. People like to have fun when they are doing their job. Which means that if people like what they are doing, they will do it even if it will takes from them a lots of time. People can give up anything in order to enjoy their time. So creativity play a great rule in changing people attitude towards things. Creative things is not must to be a very huge invention, it can be a small one that can make peoples life easier and better. This bottle machine encourage people to collect their bottles and through it in the bottle bin. People like to through their bottle because while they were doing that they were having more fun and enjoying their time.

  11. Anything that is fun , attracts people. People usually walk in streets , thinking about work problems , being tired , wanting to eat or sleep.No one thinks about useless bottles . Well , what about playing the game of bottles and even win an award ?This surely is one of the most creative ideas in the world. This bottles bank attracts people because it’s unusual and fun. It is based on having fun but at the same time aiming for collecting useless bottles . This game could cheer people up ,or even make them smile,it could be a crazy story to tell . But at the end the bank’s goal was achieved and people went home with an award and it turned out to be a successful invention.
    Here’s another crazy idea for using the bins . It is indeed crazy , but it worked .http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRgWttqFKu8&list=PL9A7C183D5B9FF6DE

  12. When you believe in the importance of something, there is something like an inner force that pushes you towards working on it even if it is not that important to the others, and that is the motive for innovation. this man believed in how important recycling is, so he tried to make something different, attractive and beneficial to convince people by his idea. it is brilliant to convince others by what you think in a way that makes them happy, satisfied, and willing to help you reach your goal. he used this attractive way, that I personally liked a lot, to attract people towards his invention.. Great!

  13. The video is so impressing, attracting people to something is not easy. Funny things may be the only thing that could attract people and encourage them. I hope that this idea could be implemented on the rubbish also not the cans or the bottles only.

  14. This video is extremely interesting. I think it is an effective idea to include fun and games in order to solve a problem. I am sure if any country has a problem and try to change people’s attitude and behavior using fun and exciting games, any problem will definitely be solved. Here is a video which I found similar to this idea, this video is real fun. http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=W4o0ZVeixYU

  15. There will be no doubt that this video is extremely amazing. It ensures that creativity dealing with any kind of fun can realize a huge success as well as interesting idea. In addition, this video also not only attracts people, but also pushes them to change their traditions and behaviors automatically thanks to this great invention , which is the fun theory. I believe that the secret of the success of the inventor is that he believes in himself and also have the courage to apply his imagination by taking good actions and by creating this new invention ; therefore, I advise all human beings that they should believe in themselves in order to reach their goals and achieve the impossible by being trustful in themselves . Also, There is a caution that they should pay attention of : do not take other’s perspectives while creating or inventing as they might have a bad impact like discouraging you , and try to be optimistic to overcome any problems you might expose to!”

  16. This is a very creative idea. Probably this is the solution to every boring task that people are not interested in, if we can make of every boring task a game, a fun game, this will make people absolutely interested to play. this way it will be fun to them and useful at the same time. i believe that this is very impressive and could be inspiring to a lot of people.

  17. Undoubtedly this video is creative and impressive. They came up with an idea that forces people to participate in recycling service because it included fun and games. So people would give some of their time to have fun and at the same time help their society’s development.

  18. Although most people should be intellectual enough to accept the idea of recycling just because of its enormous benefits and profits to both individuals and societies but still some people are looking for some kind of motivation to start any action. The idea of converting something that would appeal boring to some people into an interesting game that ends actually with a reward is very creative. Applying the same model of thinking i saw a video online about a children Autism hospital in California where as a part of the daily treatment the workers responsible for cleaning the windows are dressed in Spiderman or other superhero uniform as the doctor believes that this would introduce both happiness and hope to those children. Although these methods might seem expensive or not easily achieved but there are several corporations that apply techniques like the fun-theory to our everyday life for good prices when requested by governments or when applied on large scale projects.

  19. i personally got impressed by the video, it made me realise that simplicity and fun can be combined in an innovative way which will attract people more than being serious, as people are already fed up and they want something they would be doing while they are interested in.
