Drawing contest

PARADISO explores how the full benefits and potential of the Internet can be enjoyed by tomorrow’s societies, in order to contribute to a better world. It is important that today’s children, who will be the main users of the Internet of the future, should be able to make their voices heard.

They have been able to do exactly that through a drawing contest that PARADISO has launched in April 2011 inviting young people to draw or paint how they see the Internet affecting their lives in the future. The contest was open to primary/elementary schools from Europe and other regions of the world. Teachers were invited to play a leading role in the contest, facilitating collaborative working so that one entry per class could be sent. You can access, through the following links, to a flyer introducing the objectives and rules of the drawing contest in different languages: English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.

The contest has been a success: classes from 16 countries from all around the world have sent a total of 79 drawings. These figures were a very good surprise for the organizers. But beyond figures, they have been truly surprised by the creativity, not only from an artistic or emotional viewpoint, but also and more surprisingly from the viewpoint of innovative applications. There are in these drawings some ideas that will probably be considered with interest by research laboratories specialized in the Internet domain!

The award ceremony was organized at the European Commission in Brussels on September 7, 2011 (see pictures in the Photo Gallery of the Resources section of this web site). On this occasion, it was announced, in the presence of children having participated in the contest (and of their parents and teachers), that the organizers were very satisfied with the success of the contest, that they warmly thanked all children and teachers having participated, and that they had found it impossible to award only some submitted drawings, which means excluding others.

Therefore it had been decided that all entries would be awarded and that all participating classes would receive a printed catalogue of all submitted drawings (available here as a pdf file) as a modest expression of the most sincere gratitude of the organizers.

All drawings have been displayed in the form of posters at the entrance of the conference organized by PARADISO at the European Commission in Brussels from September 7 to 9, 2011 on the theme “Internet and societies: new innovation paths”. They are also reproduced below. You will not regret taking some time to discover them.

Egypt to Egyptians, against sectarian fights, and for national unity!

The 3D computer is our idea for the future Net. We think that the Internet has everything but the 3D, that is why as there are a lot of equipment with 3D, I thought in a computer, which all we can see on its screen, could go out from it. Then we drew a girl going out from the screen who represents the 3D dimension.

This robot can do everything. He is the perfect assistant in your home. You do not need any helper in the household. You have a vacation and drive the robot over the Internet. You arrive home and everything is tidy. His look is good too. – It is a ticket from a special box. It is a special kind of paper. You can use it for your journeys everywhere around the world. You shoot and load the object into the driver and send. This object is sent to the Internet. This object is modelled in different programs (games, business program, Archicad).

We have drawn an Internet teacher. The teacher can record some information to your head. You can choose what information you want to have in your head. It is possible at any time. Of course you must say “please” and “thank you” to the teacher.  The Internet Cook searches some information about a kind of meal and in 30 minutes the meal is ready. The cook is from special material and it can’t burn. The whole world will be connected to the Internet. The power plants produce the Internet network and the power plants are hotter and hotter. We see what will follow. There is no danger of fire. You want a child but you haven’t got a husband or a wife. So you can buy a Robot Baby Girl or Boy and you can get a baby-sitter free. In the future, the Internet could do more things than today. For example, it could be able to speak like navigation. And if I would like to have something to eat, it could appear on my table. It could be able to change weather too.

Feed the rabbits’ ‘Roger’. If I were not at home and my rabbits are hungry, I could connect to my computer via the Internet on my mobile phone. I would send an order to my computer, it would transform into a robot and feed the rabbits. I’ve created a WE GO webpage. It allows people to physically enter the Internet, i.e. pictures, videos. This is how it works: you have to find a webpage you would like to enter. Add its address into WE GO, choose pictures or video. After waiting for a while, you will be shortened and eligible to enter your screen. In the future, there could be cooking on the Internet. If we are going somewhere, we can just type something on the webpage. When we arrive, there is a delicious food for everyone. If we are at home and we need some potatoes peeled, we can just put them in a machine connected to a computer, write appropriate command and all is done.I would be happy if I could have a www.home.com page on my computer. It would work like this: somebody goes on holiday and leaves his home untidy. He would type what should be done on the page, for example do the washing up. Then a robot would go and do the washing up.

We wish the Internet can provide whatever we wish and bring us anywhere we wish to go. We wish the Internet help us to save the world and bring us peace. For example, if a thief comes, a police will pop up from the Internet to protect us. The Internet provides answers to all questions.  We can search any information and answer we need from the Internet. Since the Internet can provide everyone everything, it is no doubt that the Internet will be loved by all of us. Internet can fulfil every desire in our mind.  Internet will materialize the images and desires from our heart. The future Internet can connect people from one planet to another. Therefore, there will be borderless in the universe with Internet. In the future, people can access the Internet everywhere. We will be surrounded by the Internet and everything is possible via the Internet.

I wonder if the future Internet will become a tool that can control the human mind to do the right things, so there’s no sadness, tears anymore among us.
