Food for thought...

I came across something inspirational today, i thought i would share it as it quite appeals to me and will influence my design.

an initiative by Volkswagen to discover if fun can affect behavior, but appealing to the users curiosity which makes them use the altered object more than conventional ones.

Is this a good direction to go in, in terms of user experience?

I love these as a creative exercise. It’s a positive motivator as opposed to all the design nazis demanding that people be made to change against their will. Don’t know how practical it would be to have musical staircases everywhere, but I would sure enjoy one!
