Games + Urination = The Piss-Screen

Drunk driving is such a cause for concern in Germany that a team in Frankfurt set out to create what they dub "the Piss-Screen." So how does this Piss-Screen work?

The Piss-Screen - a pressure-sensitive inlay set within urinals, enabling users to play while they pee. We installed this newfangled creation in male restrooms across Frankfurt, teaming up with a variety of bars, clubs and cafés. The game itself was displayed on a screen above each urinal, and would automatically start as soon as someone began to pee. The player could then control the car whilst relieving himself – if they wanted the car to go right, they simply peed to the right (and visa versa).

It's basically a driving game that you control with your urine stream, and if you respond too slowly and do poorly, it results in a nasty crash. In other words, it means you're too drunk to drive (and you should think long and hard about the crash you just saw). When your urination session is over, the game displays a message ("Too Pissed to Drive? Take a Taxi Instead.") with a local taxi number.

It seems like a pretty good idea... but will it work? And what about the ladies?

i can't believe someone thought of this, let alone that he managed to get funds to design and promote it...

will it work in stopping drunk-driving? i doubt it. But it surely sounds like a fun game. Maybe they will followit up with piss-Paintbrush and piss-word for the creative types

Maybe Miyamoto will use it for the Wii =p

It'd be really neat if it had a alcohol test (albeit rudimentary) in the system. To see an estimate of how much alcohol you're pissing away.

Some students at the MIT Media Lab came up with a demo of this way back in 2002. (They even had a solution for women.)

I don't know if the German site has any connection, but since the students did go to the trouble to patent it, I assume the Germans are licensees.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
