On Target Urinal Games

By on March 28, 2006

I can’t help but laugh about this; basically an interactive game to help pass time at the urinal!

Recessed into a urinal is a pressure-sensitive display screen. When the guest uses it, he triggers an interactive game, producing images and sound.

And why would a business install something like this in their mens’ room? Oh, the benefits!

The reduced size of the “target” improves restroom hygiene and saves on cleanings costs (like the “fly in the urinal” at Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport). It also makes a trip to the urinal “fun and games” — more than just a necessary nuisance.

For a bar, pub or coffee shop, just think of the additional revenue as guys tank up for another round of their favorite toilet game! And I’m sure that it will do wonders for eye-hand coordination; gives a whole new meaning to that term now doesn’t it?

And just think of the possibilities for making the game even more interesting, like sending a low voltage electric shock up the stream if the player loses big time. Or a curved chute to send the pee back on his leg if he hits a good guy instead of a bad guy (but that would defeat the purpose somewhat!)

I don’t know if this is actually being marketed yet, but with three boys at home, I think I need one in my own bathroom! Think of how much more motivated a little boy in potty training would be with this instead of the old Cheerio-in-the-pot game.

  1. There needs to be connectivity so that you can compete with guys all over the world, like the bar trivia games. Think of the bragging rights!!

  2. I’ve got two boys (4 & 7) and somehow we missed out on the Cheerio-in-the-pot game. I first heard about it a few weeks ago. Although, the 4yo is still having aiming issues so maybe I’ll try that out.

  3. so that you can compete with guys all over the world…

    But that would involve having to enter your name or at least your initials. Most guys can pee for only so long, so signing that way is out. You’d have to enter your name with a touchpad or something, and I’m not so sure I’d want to be touching that thing.
