world's first urine-controlled video game for pubs

Why stare at a blank wall in front of a urinal when you can play a video game with your pee? The Exhibit bar in Balham, South London, has unveiled what it claims is the world’s first urine-controlled video game for pubs.

However, people using the public toilets on the Tokyo Metro system are already having fun playing with their pee, thanks to SEGA Toylets.

British version is the brainchild of Gordon MacSween and Mark Melford, the owners of the game’s maker, Captive Media. According to the thinq_, they heard the story about cleaning costs being reduced at Amsterdam’s Schiphol airport after owners etched a tiny image of a fly in the bottom of the urinals – causing customers to improve their aim and reducing the ‘spillage’ by 80 percent.

MacSween and Melford thought they’d give customers something more interesting to aim at. Gents can control the games – with names like Clever Dick and On The Piste – simply by moving their stream left and right.

Players of the urinal game are able to post their scores to Twitter and are able to compete with friends through a live leader board.

The units will continue to be rolled out across Britain in early 2012.
