New Urinal-Based Video Game Makes a Splash

Posted by ScuttleMonkey on Wednesday May 21, @12:23PM from the hope-you-don't-have-a-shy-bladder dept.

Those who enjoy drinking beer, playing video games, and (oddly enough) peeing in urinals may be able to reach true nirvana after all. "Place to Pee" is a new video game that relies on a player's ability to hit sensors in a urinal to control game play. While this may seem extremely male-centric, don't worry, ladies, the game designers have thought of you too, and have designed a specialized paper cone for participation. Man, it's a bad day to be a janitor.

Hmm... if this catches on, they might want to set up a new site: Splashdot.

Actually, wouldn't it be better for the janitors?

I was reading the Freakonomics blog (http://freakonomics.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/04/11/nudge/), and they were talking about the book "Nudge," which is a popular behavioral economics book about what "libertarian paternalism."

"Nudge" describes how a black fly was painted in the bottom of a urinal, and it turns out with something to aim at, “spillage” is reduced 80 percent.
