Urinal Gaming: "Don't Cross the Streams!"

Lehigh Valley games begin - on field and in restrooms

Never has a trip to the men's room been more anticipated.

Landes talked about the gimmick before Tuesday's exhibition game between the triple-A IronPigs and the double-A Reading Fightin Phils. He said there are four of these video urinals in the ballpark. Each cost $4,000.

When a user approaches the urinal, the video console flips into gaming mode, using patented technology that detects both the player's presence and stream. Algorithms allow a user to engage with the screen by aiming in different directions to test his agility and knowledge.
This is just bizarre. When do they introduce player vs. player gaming, and how horrific does it become?

Apparently there is also messaging included for men's health, so that's cool. But I still find it so strange. If you get a good score, please don't turn and high five the guy in line behind you!

As a reward you get to eat the big white mint.
