Urinal Video Game Console – Controlled By Pee

Just when you thought all the weird stuff came from Japan. UK company Captive Media has unveiled a video game console that installs above a modified urinal with sensors that you use to control the action of the game with your stream. See it for yourself in the video below.

One thought here is that the video games will help guys with their aim, but I think it make work in the opposite way. Just one of the games offered is a skiing game, and my video game skiing history tells me that might involve a lot of flailing left and right. I’d hate to be the person who has to clean the bathrooms at those pubs. To be fair, the games they use seem to be calibrated more to their need, which may alleviate some of my concern. Perhaps more effective – though arguably less fun – are products like the Urinal Fly which have been out for some time.

Stranger, still, you can post your scores to Twitter via the Captive Games Twitter account. I’m guessing the logistics behind inputting your own Twitter username and password were a bit much.

I’m not sure if this urinal video game console is a good or bad idea. What do you think?

  1. That’s pretty funny. I would definitely make a special trip to a bar in my area if they installed urinal video games. I do think it will cause longer trips to the bathroom though, and yeah, I’m with you on feeling sorry for whoever has to clean up that pissy video game mess!

  2. @WesleyTech Check out the games they have for it. There’s one called “Clever Dick”. They actually look kind of fun but yeah, suddenly there will be a line for the men’s room.

  3. Truly odd.It will sell more beer for the people that need to ‘reload’.

    Hopefully people don’t follow the old rule of shooting to the side to reload.

  4. @MarixD Ha! I was just thinking that too. I wonder if my wife would let me put one of these in our bathroom.

  5. Are we that incapable of not being entertained that we need to play games even while using the toilet. I am one who should talk, I love when urinals at restaurants have newspaper clippings on the wall to read while urinating, and I use my iPad 2 to read news, magazines and even game a little while on the loo.

  6. Wow this is definitely one of the weirdest ideas ever. Like you said, I can visualize lots of spraying all over the place with this and would not want to be next to someone enjoying a good game while doing his business, that is for sure!
