Play while you pee, in Belgian urinal game

Play while you pee, in Belgian urinal game - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Two Belgian beer fans have launched a video game named 'Place to pee', which allows players to slalom down ski slopes or kill aliens while relieving themselves at urinals.

Werner Dupont, a software developer, and Bart Geraets, an electrical engineer, got the idea while drinking Belgian trappist beers, they said at a local festival.

"This thing had to be invented by Belgian people and that's what we are," they said.

The 'Place to pee' booth is designed for two users at a time and offers two games - blowing up aliens in outer space or skiing down a virtual slope. Gamers hit their target by aiming at sensors positioned on either side of the urinal.

A specially designed paper cone allows women to play too, the inventors say.

Their 'Place to pee' logo resembles 'Manneken Pis', the little urinating boy fountain that is among Brussels' top sightseeing attractions.


I LOVE the Manneken Pis! Not sure if it's as 'lady friendly' as it hopes to be.

I too have my doubts about the 'lady -friendliness' of this game. But hey, while we can't write our names in the snow (hmmm, maybe with one of those cups?) we can appreciate the fun. Same goes with this game.
This could revolutionize male toiletting etiquette, guys will start going to the urinal in pairs and not coming out for ages. Can you imagine them at the pubs steadfastly refusing to urinate until their bladders are really full so that they can play the game for the longest possible time, tears in their eyes, straining from the effort of holding so much wee in and begging their mate "c'mon I need to play NOW!"

Someone's thinking. That is a brilliant idea. Until the technology becomes readily available, heres an old school toilet game that can be enjoyed at any urinal. Its called trough hockey. Two contestants one either side of a one of those coloured smelly things in a urinal. Each contestant tries to move the puk in the direction of the other with the force of their piss.

Boys have all the fun.

Although, with the She Wee http://www.shewee.com/ maybe we can all play! I'm this close to buying the She Wee (I always want to type Shee Wee) and trying it out.

The website offers great advice:

Tip! Practise with Shewee in the shower to find the best position for you.

Shewee is washable by hand or machine and can withstand temperatures up to 120°C.

On leaving the body, urine is sterile

That's so cool.
