Japanese People Sure Love Pissing on SegaS

And who doesn't? Kidding! (I love you Sega. I think.) Back in Dec. 2010, Kotaku broke the news that Sega was working on a urine-powered game system for Japanese toilets.

The result, now installed at bars throughout the country, is doing more than measuring urine speed.

"This gives bar customers more things to talk about when they return from bathrooms to their tables," said Hiroyuki Tanaka, Sega spokesman. Because who doesn't love talking about tinkle while drinking booze!

According to Sega, Toylet also gives men a subliminal incentive to piss in urines to play the mini-games, instead of all over the place. In that regard, Sega said Toylet can help create cleaner restrooms.

"We have had good feedback from our customers that toilet cleanliness has improved," said Tanaka.

Each Toylet costs ¥150,000 (US$1,948), and there are currently 130 units installed across the country. More units should dribble out in the future.
