Pee Accurately for Points: Sega's New Urinal-Based Gaming Interface

by the Left Coast Rebel

This is one of those, I should have thought of that and at the same time, how could have someone have possibly thought of that stories.

Sega has been out of the console market for years now (sob, sob, I know) but that doesn't mean that the company is fresh out of ideas.

Behold the pee-for-play Sega interface:



More details from Popsci:

Now Sega is cornering the niche bathroom gaming market with a gaming interface named “Toirettsu” in which the user controls the game by peeing on sensors in a urinal.

If you can’t go standing up, perhaps Toirettsu isn’t for you (sorry ladies, but your hands-free method allows you to play Angry Birds on the can anyhow). Toirettsu targets restaurant and retail environments, ostensibly in hopes that by giving users goal-oriented mini-games to focus on, their men’s room floors might stay a bit cleaner as gents have somewhere to aim. And, of course, it gives establishments (and Sega) somewhere to place an ad.

    I know I'd buy it for my husband.
