SEGA ToyLets Video Game: SEGA Makes its Own Wii

by Paul Strauss

Guys, admit it. At some point in your life, you’ve tried to carefully aim or control your stream when you’re taking a leak. There are even those little target urinal cakes in some bathrooms to encourage accurate aim. Now, SEGA is showing off a new video game concept that takes pee-control to a whole new level.

Yep, despite all their recent hardships, Japan is still chock-full of weird and wacky ideas. The SEGA ToyLets game rewards players with points not based on accuracy, but the volume and intensity of urine they spray into the game controller (aka the urinal). Infrared sensors monitor when a contestant approaches, activating the game screen. Once you start doing your business, microwave sensors measure the speed and duration of the flow.

As you can see from the video clip above, you’ll even be able to compete head-to-head (literally) with other contestants for the best stream. SEGA hopes that bars and restaurants will buy these and install them in their restrooms, since the game screen can also be used to sell advertisements. With a cost of about ¥170,000 (~$1729 USD) for the system, and another ¥10,000 (~$123) for the game, you might even consider installing one of these in your own bathroom if you’ve got a couple thousand bucks to spare on a conversation piece.

We can only hope that this won’t be turned into a Kinect game.
