Sega Toylet: Become a video game whiz - at the urinal

Sega’s latest video game is in the toilet, but that doesn’t mean it will tank.

The Japanese company is testing Toylets – video games for urinals – at four locations in Tokyo, according to news reports, including one from Japan’s Akihabara News.

Wanna play? It’s probably best to fill up on beverages first, because the best scores come from the strongest streams. A pressure plate in the urinal measures what you’ve got.

Then choose one of four games on video screens mounted above the urinals.

There’s the “Graffiti Eraser”: The stronger the stream, the more cyberwalls you can clean up.

Or try “Milk From Nose.” This is a multiplayer game. Your stream is measured against those of previous users and translated into milk blown from a character’s nose. The strongest nose-blowers pushes the opponent out of a ring, and we have a winner. Your opponent need not be present to play.

Another game equates stream strength with a gust of wind blowing the dress off a girl.

It’s not all fun and games. You get to watch advertising while you go, er, compete.

Wired UK reports that the testing phase will last through the end of the month. Drink up!

      Actually, home urinals make a lot of sense. Think of all the water it would save. I think it would also be more sanitary.

    I guess they called it Toylets because Wii was already taken. 🙂

    It's no longer socially unacceptable to play with yourself in a public restroom.

    Best response Ric. This would be great to help potty train my son, I'd have to lock out the dress blowing game though.

      But Fruit Loops or Cheerios into the toilet and have your son "target practice" and make gun noises as he goes. Potty training becomes fun and there isn't a lot of aim problems once he gets the hang of it!

      Also, a lot cheaper than this game... lol

    This is brilliant. Nothing says brilliance / innovation / laziness more than games to play while going to the bathroom. 🙂 Now if there were only a way to capture all those brilliant ideas you have in the shower...

    Didn't your parents tell you not to play with your joy stick at the urinal?

    These are all fine ideas! My two cents:
    with the ads, make a non-paying demo so they can try/before buy... estimated volume, maybe even a whiz quiz for bac?
