Sega's videogame business hit a 'new flow' this week when the firm pushed its urinal games terminal, the Toylet, out into retail in Japan. That means that those who took a shine to Sega's Toylets after using them in various bathrooms across the country, now have the opportunity to put them in their own homes, the company …
I've seen a few urinal inserts which were simple plastic things and fulfilled (if you pardon the pun) the same aim (argh) to keep the user focused (that's enough). It is a problem in public places - I sometimes cannot believe the mess (and am suitably enamoured of companies that make even that "experience" a decent one - it makes me prefer that location over the competition if all other factors are the same).
So, thumbs up for the idea, thumbs down for the price and installation hassle. The plastic gadget does the job, and if someone decides to play dirty (groan) and takes it away, replacing it won't break the bank.. Or the urinal.
It is not a whim. It takes longer to toilet train a Japanese child than a Western one. All that pixellation means they can not see where their bits are exactly so it takes far longer for them to blindly develop accurate hand-to-bits co-ordination based solely on touch.
