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.

    Probably funded by ObamaCare or the Stimulus Package. Could be worse, U.S. tax payers could be paying $880k to study New Zealand mud snails having s3x.

      You’re a real idiot, aren’t you.

      Its something for a pissoir, isn’t it? (Like the McDonalds in Belgium that had urinals shaped like women’s mouths with red lipstick…)

      That is a great example of some venture capitalist pissing away seed capital.

      The banks would never waste piss that way… They’d charge you to drink it.

      The government would never waste piss that way, they’d want a flow meter so they could tax you by the centiliter. (Stick your dick in, pee and when you’re done the flow meter tell you how much to put in for the tax, if you ever want to see your dick again.)

      Obama care would charge you less money for unnecessary urinalysis than the insurance companies, (who would deny you coverage if they detect anything, anything at all.)

      You local police would collect a sample and clamp down with a vice grip until you were no longer at risk for a DUI, (or they would march in with batons while you were otherwise occupied.)

      The FBI, CIA, NSA and half-a-dozen other alphabet soup agencies would take the opportunity to grab you by the short and curlies to ask you all sorts of interesting questions.

      Believe me this is a yellow liquid gold data mine…

        So you say. Have you seen their business plan?

    If you have prostate problems, you’ll probably be standing there a while.

    If you last until the bonus round, you definitely need to make an appointment with Dr. Glove.

  3. noname says:

    Great, no respite for the weary.

    More commercials than one can shake “his own” stick at.

    Look Ma, no hands…….

    One -eyed competitive Peeing for beer, what’s next?

      You don’t have a job…..or a girl friend, do you?

        My job is my girlfriend, my mistress and my whore.

        She pains me yet I still draw near.

        She threatens me and I beg and wince.

        She mistreats me and I work harder.

        She’s a bitch, but she’s my job.

  4. ± says:

    Sorry, but those things are prime targets. I hope they have gaskets around the screens. If not, the design engineers were women.

    Put me down for a game of doubles

  6. noname says:

    Bad marketing “penetration”, it can never be more then 25%!

    That’s Short sighted!

      Pilgrims with short muskets, please stand close to the firing range…

    What sort of games will they be?

    What else?

    First Pissant Shooters.

    (You seriously don’t think they’d put Jeopardy on there, do you? :-))

    lemme guess! they will be called,….

    wait for it!

    Weeeee consoles!

    This is why FBI’s Lawyer Says Real-Time Online Snooping Is A ‘Top Priority’ In 2013!

    When twinkling you notices something winking; you ask is that a drain or a camera?

    CIA now demands by law all urinals have Biometric IR laser scanners to collect candidate traits, determine religion, color and probable nationality to guard and grow America’s breeding stock. People mysteriously disappear and reappear days later with no memory but lingering soreness.

    Outside of Washington is a CIA breeding farm where the best Urinal Candidates are taken and studded out.

    • noname says:

      Welcome to America 2.0!

      Now Obama is all powerful Judge/Jury/Executioner and kills US citizens at will… He has ordered the CIA to design Urinals with electrocution capability.

      As the suspect pees, the Urinal laser scanning system sizes him up, the drain testing system pulls & cks his DNA against the national database, an image is taken and all the information is sent via high speed internet to the CIA “Biometric Services Section” computer. A real-time the suspect identity is made and scans for a match on the presidential death list. If a match is found, a signal is sent to switch on the Urinal “third rail” circuit to complete the death warrant.

      If no match is found, the drain testing system continues testing for illegal nonprescription drugs. If found, the local authorities are dispatched with suspect ID, drug in use and location. A stun voltage can be sent if suspect is a high value target.

      If no illegal drugs are found, the Urinal taunts the suspect for his small size and shows a Viagra commercial.

  10. noname says:

    Electrifying urinals, have these been UL approved?

    Probably have to agree to the Eula before peeing!

    In the event of a BSOD, Ambulance Paramedics and IT will be called. Don’t confuse the two.

  11. msbpodcast says:

    I can just imagine birth day specials on the urinal cakes.

    What happens if you get high score? Does it play a pissy Donkey Kong type 8-bit tune?

    What happens when you get a wrong answer? Do you get a kick-ass bunch of volts for feedback? (The screen is right above your junk [they don’t use 20KV flyback transformers anymore but you can still do a lot of damage with 120volts at 15 amps. :-)])

    What are hackers going to do with internet enabled urinals? Start a DDOS attack from the men’s room? (I can just imagine Anonymous putting Guy Fawkes mask images and playing La Marseillaise while the somebody’s router is under a golden ping shower or otherwise pwned.)

  12. dcphill says:

    Gaming while peeing, you’ll piss on your shoes.

  13. bobbo, one time I held my thumb and pissed in my pants says:

    Back in the day when they had those blue puck deodorizers, I used to amuse myself by peeing it back and forth in the urinal.

    I’m looking forward to anything more challenging.

    The rotating games, which will initially feature alpine skiing, “are sure to make a big splash,” IronPigs general manager Kurt Landes said in a team-issued news release.

    Ha! That’s inventive…and strange. I’m pretty sure it’ll be a hit with some of the boys though.

  17. Number33 says:

    This is great! Following sports is harder these days. Any chance to keep up is pure gold! GOLD!

  18. pedro says:

    - Nevermind the smudges, play along.

    – We are celebrating this because is a pub/club. Would it be the Catholics and someone would already have panties in a bunch.

    – Yawn!

  19. dadeo says:

    They got a aerial assault game for the crapper?

  20. Mike Carlson says:

    This is awful. They could have used the money invested on this on more important and sensible matters.

  21. Pea Nuss says:

    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”.

  22. Miss_X2 says:

    Hope they’re waterproof.

  23. Uncle Patso says:

    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?

  24. SPOCK says:

    hello mr. johnson… shall we play a game?

  25. noname says:

    This Just Pisses Me Off!

  26. Glenn E. says:

    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?
