Quickies: Pissing the night away

Quickies: Pissing the night away 
Source(s):  Neoseeker

Waggling optional


I figured quoting Chumbawamba's hit "tubthumping" would be appropriate for this one.

It's said that the average person spends 1.5 years in the bathroom in their given lifetime. How would you like to double that time? Well Sega wants to put video games in public urinals.Why? you might be asking?

 This Neoseeker article will help you to understand why.

Have you ever found yourself in a public restroom, just urinating in peace, when the urge to test your pissing prowess just struck you out of nowhere? Actually, don't answer that, but just in case, SEGAhas Tokyo's urinals covered for just such occasions.
Should you ever find yourself in Tokyo, Japan, poke your head into the men's room (or just walk in, if you are a man) and check these out. These gamesare comprised of an LCD screen and sensors that pick up pressure and location of your... stream, and you've got a variety of mini-games to choose from. 
Mannekin Pies sounds pretty basic, since it just measures how hard you pee (again, pressure), while the other three we've heard about get a tad more complex. Graffiti Eraser has you aim a hose to clean away paint, and Milk From Nose has players competing against each other by providing scores of the urinal's previous occupants. Yes, you can out-pee strangers and feel like a total stud about it too.
The North Wind and Her, finally, is the obligatory pervert game, which has players blow up a girl's skirt with their high-pressure streaming capabilities. Obviously the harder you pee, the stronger the wind. 
Advertisements run between gaming sessions, and the LCD displays boast USB functionality, for anyone who wants to download their scores... for whatever reason

Japan is a strange country, but it's a good kind of strange. For all it's oddities, Japan does things that no other country would ever consider and that's kind of why they're at the forefront of most new technology. Still have no explanation for the weirdness, though.. Eh, it's Japan.
