You're probably familiar with the advertising that frequently appears above public urinals in men's restrooms. Always the innovator, Japan has a new idea for that unused space: video games, where the controller is your urine stream.

They are called Toylets, and currently there are four models. To be clear, these are still in development.
  • Manneken Pis, which simply calculates the amount of urine produced.
  • Graffiti Eraser, in which graffiti on a wall is removed with a hose, your hose we suppose.
  • The North Wind and Her, you are the north wind, and you  try to blow a dress off a girl. The stronger the urine stream, the harder the wind blows.
  • Milk from Nose, two sumo wrestling characters blow milk out of their noses to push the other out of a sumo ring. The winner is the person who has the stronger urine pressure.  Don't worry, it's multiplayer, but the game is between you and the prior user of that same urinal.
We have to admit at being held speechless by the Toylet. We also feel sorry for the fairer sex, who can't participate in such wonderment (yes, yes, it's bad enough the lines in women's restrooms are so long).



A little disturbing, actually...

What's the point?

I don't see any coin slots, so these aren't for making money.

Are they afraid that people will just urinate on themselves if they don't have some incentive to visit the bathroom?

What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?

The North Wind and Milk games just made me realize the point: They want you in and out of the bathroom as fast as possible - even if you have to rupture a kidney doing it.

I'm with you guys, why do they have to place games in the bathrooms. We don't need to be playing games we need to be sitting down and doing our business.

Hey Taylor where have you been? Did you get the computer working right?

 

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.

Where are the games for the bowl, and not just the urinal?

With games like Bomb drop! Snapping Grumpy time, and Godzilla attack? Would give new meaning to turning Japanese on the toilet :P
