I suppose it was only a matter of time. A bar in London has debuted urinal video games. Finally guys have something to keep them busy while relieving themselves in public bathrooms.
By all accounts, the video games are quite popular. After a successful trial run at a bar in Cambridge (England), they have been installed at another bar called The Exhibit Bar in the south of London. There’s an informative video on this page.
Each equipped urinal offers three games to choose from. The action unfolds on a video screen on the wall above the urinal, but everything onscreen is controlled by the business being done down below. The average "user" spends 55 seconds standing at a urinal, which is apparently more than enough time to play a game. After you’re done, you can upload your score to Twitter and even compete for the top spot on a live leaderboard. Competitive urinating is finally getting its moment.
According to the report, next year these urinal video games will be showing up at bars all across the UK. If you’re going on any trips to London, and you’re a male, you’ll have a whole new reason to go to the bathroom at bars. With luck, you might even find yourself on the leaderboard.
