Bored in the bathroom? Try this.

We are definitely heading into a future our parents did not dream of, when men’s urinals are equipped with video games operated by a stream of urine.

The sturdy device sits above the normal oval ceramic urinal bowl, opening up a whole new world of entertainment.

The user is presented with three generous targets to aim for in the urinal: stickers in the unit that read “Start”, “Left” and “Right”.

The console is able to detect where the urine is falling by means of an infra-red device.

And so a rudimentary “joystick” is set up.

I am never going to see the word “joystick” in quite the same way again. On the other hand, I bet there’s very little spillage around these toilets!

    I think the lack of spillage is the aim (hehe) of the invention. Like the fly in the bowl, only better…
