Now, play urine-powered 'Toylet' game
Sega’s latest video game ‘Toylet’ takes playing video games while you’re in the bathroom to a whole new level.
Dubbed as Toylet, the urinal-mounted game system not only has you play games while you’re in the bathroom, it’s powered by urine.
Rather than use a traditional controller, the gaming system has a sensor that measures the volume and pressure involved in urine flow, and uses that to control a game.
Games are less than a minute and are displayed on a small eye-level screen.
It is not exactly a game system for the kids, it involve doing things like filling a coffee can or blowing wind up an animated reporter’s skirt.
Since, the system can only be used on urinals it is meant only for men.
The rate of the equipment reportedly starts at 1750 dollars and 125 dollars for each game.
An optional box can be purchased to accept payment from potential game players, turning the urinal into pay-to-play bathroom arcade.
Advertisements can also be sold for and displayed on the Toylet after each completed game.
Sega initially tested the gaming systems in Tokyo last winter, and received enough positive reviews that it has decided to roll out the gaming systems across the country.
According to the company people using the Toylet make less of a mess while they’re taking care of business, and the businesses that advertise on the Toylet sell twice as much.
