Play doesn’t need to stop for sports fans taking a bathroom break at a Pennsylvania minor-league baseball stadium that has installed video games in men’s room urinals.

The “hands-free” video game is played by directing oneself right or left in the urinals at the Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania. The game is aimed at increasing prostate health awareness [har].

The video screens challenge players to steer their way along a snowmobile course, while trying to hit cartoon penguins. They also display messages reminding men to make an appointment for a prostate exam, Schaeffer said.

Names of high scorers deft enough to hit the target mirrored on a 12-inch LCD screen above the urinal will appear on other contestants’ urinals and on the video displays in the ballpark…

The urinal video games will commence when the baseball games start for the IronPigs, a minor league team affiliated with the Philadelphia Phillies. The team opens its 2013 season next week with an exhibition game on Tuesday…

While the games have been placed in bars in the United Kingdom, their appearance in the Allentown stadium marks a first in the world of sports, said Ed Gundrum, who oversees sales for the company in the U.S.

The screens and sensors are undergoing, erm, calibration for the start of the season.

    Looks like a toilet Red Fox would have been proud to use. (Remember Sanford & Son’s Fred Sanford?)

    Red Fox once said that he was so poor that if he hadn’t been born a boy that he wouldn’t have had anything to play with.

    That said, “Match Box” meet “Hot Wheels”.

    Hope they’re waterproof.

    I suppose the idea is they’ll sell more beer to guys who want to play longer?

    What I want to know is how do you enter your high score name/initials?

    hello mr. johnson… shall we play a game?

    If it’s interactive games, on those screens. Then you’d have to touch it. And I doubt anyone sober wants to touch anything that someone else touched, after holding their private part. The flush handle was bad enough, over the years. And they eliminated most of those. So brilliant idea, bring back another thing to touch.

    Also, they better be careful what they display on those screens. I can just see them sneaking some commercials in. And what’s a guy to do when a Victory’s Secret ad appears? Stand on his head?
