In an effort to reduce male patron’s messiness (and grab some cash from locales not necessarily associated with gaming) Sega’s Toylets can now be found in restrooms across Japan — and even in a handful of cities overseas. You won’t need to make the laborious trek to your nearest bar or arcade to beat the high score any more, however, as Sega’s now put the urinal games terminal up for sale to (Japanese) Joe Public. A sensor at the base will detect pressure and, er, volume which acts as the controls. A screen at eye level will show your progress, and you can expect several short-but-sweet games in the style of Rhythm Tengoku or Warioware. It all comes a price though — you’ll need to stump up 140,000 yen (around $1750) for the device itself and 10,000 yen ($125) a piece for games. The porcelain is (unfortunately) not included.
