The Toylet

Sega launches video games controlled by urine in Tokyo (but they're for men only)

Sega have launched a new bathroom video game console - that is controlled by the player's urine.
Sensors on the novel device - named the 'Toylet' - measure the speed and intensity of the male player's water flow at the urinal.

The bizarre consoles - which each have four video mini-games - will be installed at four metro stations across Tokyo, Japan. The titles are expected to be a money-spinner for the company because they can show adverts before the user starts to pee.

A pressure sensor in the urinal measure the strength and the location of the urine stream as it hits the basin. An LCD screen displays the graphics and rewards the strength, length and accuracy of the pee through a points system.

One of the games challenges players to blast graffiti off the wall with a high-pressure flow. Another title calculates exactly how much urine the player has produced while 'Milk from Nose' puts the toilet user up against the previous person in a challenge to see who has the strongest flow.

In 'The North Wind and Her' the player lifts up a woman's skirt with high-pressure blasts in their role as the wind. The bizarre consoles have been launched in Japan and will be installed at the first four metro stations in the next few weeks.

The games are designed to make restrooms more fun - and also to keep the user's eye on the target.
Proud players are able to download their high scores onto a flash drive.
