Sega, those responsible for Sonic the Hedgehog amongst others, has combined men’s obsession with video gaming with their seemingly inability to aim straight to create a range of games in selected Tokyo urinals. Aptly called the Toylets, these have been installed in male lavatories at four bars and games arcades in the Japanese capital. The games use pressure sensors attached to eye-level LCD screens that tests your accuracy as you answer the call of nature, with a choice of 4 games to play. The four games include one in which the object is to spray the screen clean of graffiti. Another, Manneken Pis , ( yes, that is its real name!!) named after the famous statue in Brussels, measures the volume of the urine stream. Splashing Battle, meanwhile, pits one user against another – VIRTUALLY i might add !! – by challenging him to produce a more powerful stream than the previous visitor. In the fourth game, the North Wind and the Sun and Me, sensors control a digital wind blowing up a young woman’s skirt. The greater the stream’s intensity, the higher the skirt travels. What will they come up with next? Im not looking forward to their re-incarnation of Battleships !!!!
