London Bar Lets You Play Restroom Video Games
There are only a number of reasons a person will go to the restroom. In its conventional uses, restrooms are for unloading your bladder or stomach’s content and washing your face or hands. But, in a bar in London going to this room offers a new feature: restroom video games that can be played by peeing.
The urinals of Exhibit, offers its users the option of playing a game while urinating. A 12 inch LCD screens stands just above the urinals and the games available are controlled by the simple stream motion of the liquid that the user left when urinating. Simple motions such as left and right are one of the simple commands that allows the customer to play games such as Clever Dick and On The Piste. Other rest room video games involve a skiing game that can also be controlled with the same movements.
And what’s more just like any video games commonly on the arcade shops, a high score record is also available for other users to see. So if you wanna be the king of the restroom games, you better have a lot of liquid stocked in your bladder.
The high tech urinals were developed by UK-based Captive Media. Gordon Macsween, a man who often drinks on bars is the inventor who came up with this idea. “When we put it in, people thought it’d be ripped off the wall within a week, but it’s still there after four months. Because people are having a laugh, there’s a lot less vandalism. People just tend to get less angry” he told the London Times, commenting on the success of this innovation.
The restroom urinal video games not only served as entertainment for the customers who are having their potty break but, Exhibit staff says the restroom’s became “less messy” since the innovation.
