A videogame that truly takes the p*ss
Is that really what they meant by Wii?
Combine videogames, beer and a urinal, and what do you get? Well, aside from a vile smell, you get Place to Pee – an interactive gaming unit ‘operated’ by the flow of a certain warm, yellow liquid.

No we’re not taking the p*ss, Place to Pee has been developed by Werner Dupont, a software developer, and Bart Geraets, an electrical engineer, both from Belgium, and is reportedly taking the country by storm.
Bursting gamers step into the booths, which have small screens positioned in front of each gamer. Each… ahem… 'player' then lets rip and tries to aim squarely onto pressure-sensitive pads, Reuters reports.
Place to Pee: micturate to recreate
Several games are available, including Pee to Ski and Space Invaders. Gamers simply point the flow at either the left or right-hand pad to control the on-screen action. Politically minded mictirationalists can even vote between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton by passing water on the appropriate pad.
The Belgians previously installed a Place to Pee unit at GamePower Expo in Belgium last year, but p*ssed-off Belgian police banned it on the grounds of indecency.
That won’t be enough to stop the pair’s gaming unit from flowing elsewhere though, because Place to Pee now has an official website and can be rented out too.
