Over the years, there’s been all sorts of additions to men’s urinals to “help” those using it stay in the urinal, and not make a mess of the floor (or themselves). While there are still some urinals out there that feature cute little designs near the bottom, like that of a bee, it seems that Japan is still having some major issues, and now they’re doing what they should have done right from the start: made it a game.
It’s designed by SEGA, and it’s called Toirettsu. It works by including a sensor inside the urinal itself, which can determine when it is being peed on. Not only that, but it can actually tell how hard it is being peed on, too. The result? A set of mini-games that are featured on an LCD display that’s about eye-level, above the urinal. As a guy is relieving himself, they’ll be able to play cute little games, all depending on how they’re going. Games include putting out fires, or shooting milk out of a character’s nose at other people who may be using the urinals next to you. (That’s right, there’s multiplayer!)
Unfortunately for those in Japan, these games haven’t been installed in any actual restrooms yet. It has just been shown off at trade shows, which you can watch on video below. No confirmation as to when Japanese men should expect to find these games in bathrooms at their favorite restaurant, but hopefully it’s sooner than later.
