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?
