Phillies minor league team in Allentown to launch urinal video games

You can now play “Urinal Games” in Allentown.  Our Tribune affiliate, the Allentown Morning Call has more on this unique invention.

Coca-Cola Park in Allentown is introducing a”Urinal Gaming System” that will allow men to operate a hands-free game controller while standing before urinals during Lehigh Valley IronPigs games.

The p-controlled video game systems will be featured in all men’s restrooms at Coca-Cola Park.

“These games are sure to make a huge splash,” IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said in a press release. “Our fans are always looking for the next big thing and these ‘X-Stream games’ are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park, including our restrooms.”

When a user approaches the urinal, the video console flips into gaming mode, using technology that detects both his presence and stream. Algorithms then allow the user to engage with the screen by aiming in different directions to test their agility and knowledge.

The games are 100 percent intuitive and custom-built to provide a unique user interface along with an easy and seamless experience.

The Urinal Gaming System was created and developed by United Kingdom-based Captive Media.

Upon completion a game, users will receive a score and a code to enter. They can then view their position on the leader board or check the website to see how they stack up with the rest of that night’s competition.

    This sounded so great. If I have to miss an inning to take a leak, at least I'll be entertained! Then I realized that this game isn't available to me. C'mon, Iron Pigs! How about a fun urinal-game for all your lady fans? Don't leave us out!
