The Exhibit Bar, London

A video game controlled by your urine stream…in a bar…in London. That pretty much says all you need to know about this post. So if you’re easily offended, you can stop reading now.

The Exhibit Bar in Balham, South London, is the first venue in the UK to install these newly invented game units above their urinals. So the usually awkward 55 seconds that the average guy passes spends looking at the wall while he pees becomes a valuable entertainment (and advertising) opportunity.

Devised by Captive Media, the games are directed by the flow of urine. And an unexpected bonus of this in trials was an improvement in the cleanliness of the gents’ toilets as accuracy improved!

Once you’ve finished the game, you can brag about your score via Twitter and post your name on a leader board.

There’s no word on networking urinals yet, however. And don’t hold your breath ladies – seems no such game for women is planned. Talk of quiz units by the hand driers is your only consolation.

However, expect to see more of the gent’s units popping up in other venues through early 2012.
