Sega Urinal

TOKYO -- Sega Japan has launched a website dubbed "toylets" to promote a videogame novelty that can be played in a public restroom -- specifically, in a men's urinal. Toirettsu, Sega's bathroom-based videogame interface, enables the user to play four different "mini games" by urinating on sensors located in a ceramic receptacle.

Accurate aim is reflected in video action, shown on a small monitor mounted on the wall above the urinal. The monitor also supports advertising. [see video]

The game is reportedly in development and presumably will be confined to the Japanese market. No release date is known.

Similar novelties have occasionally been exhibited at some U.S. amusement industry trade shows in past years, but this may be the first time a well-known videogame manufacturer has entered the restroom video gaming niche.
