Minor league baseball’s newest draw: Urine-controlled video games

- The Washington Times - Wednesday, March 27, 2013

A Pennsylvania minor league baseball team will be the first to debut urine-controlled video games in its restrooms when the season starts in April.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs will have a "Urinal Gaming System" in their men's restrooms next month. The video game demo featured a snowboarding slalom game in which the character is controlled by where the player aims, U.S. News reports.

"To turn left, pee left ... to turn right, pee right," the video says.

The system is designed by a British company called Captive Media office, which states that complexes in Knoxville, Tenn. and Dallas, Texas, as well as a dozen companies in Europe already have the unusual gaming systems.

"[T]hese games are sure to make a huge splash," IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes told U.S. News.
