Gamepee - connect with your audience through the interactive experience of this new technology in advergaming. (Yes, the start-up behind this is Belgian.)

Not sure the amount of splash they will save by gamifying attention to aim is going to offset the almost irresistible desire to inflict a magnificent golden torrent upon the device itself.

Especially if the fucker is trying to show me commercials while I piss.

Too casual. How long does a regular pee even last? Not long enough to really develop a story or even set the mood in a game. However, the other reason to visit the toilet, that's where the potential for proper gaming lies. Sometimes you can even fit a mini-campaign into a visit, if you're (un)lucky.

Dibs on not developing that controller, though...

21 seconds, for most mammals. (regardless of size!)

Also, that game sets unrealistic standards for firefighters.

They have an ipad mounted on the wall with a next gen controller and it still a push button flush? Weird priorities for tech upgrade.

Me and my friends always hi five before I leave the table. That's just how we roll

The Germans have been doing this for years with the "hit the fly" feature baked into their urinals. No high tech required.

Ping pong ball with a couple of meridians in heavy black marker works too. Kind of a stream powered fidget spinner.

Yeah, encouraging drunk people to aim their pee in different directions can't POSSIBLY go badly.

Why, yes, I do have experience cleaning public bathrooms. Why do you ask?

The phrase "wouldn't piss on him if he was on fire" came to mind when looking at the kid. The dog was cute. The kid, well, he could burn for all I cared. I think I've become desensitized to harm to obvious human representations that are not actually human. Probably all the video games.

OK so how is that kid getting from room to room so quickly if the house is on fire? I call shenanigans.
