Now you can play while you pee

British company Captive Media has developed a urine-controlled games console for use in urinals.
The device sits above the ceramic bowl of the urinal, with the console using infra-red to detect where the urine is falling.

The games are controlled by the direction of a man's pee stream.

Users aim at one of three infrared sensors - to steer themselves down a ski slope, knock down penguins or even answer quiz questions.
The games include a pub quiz and a skiing challenge, with customers able to use their phones to upload their high scores to Twitter and a leaderboard.
The device is equipped with a reinforced 12-inch LCD screen as well as an Intel Atom dual-core processor.
A trial run at a Cambridge pub saw some interesting results, with toilets being cleaner due to improved accuracy.
Another finding was that competitive customers started and stopped their stream to improve accuracy.

The inventors say more urinals like these are due to hit bars and clubs across the UK in the months to come.
And they'll be hoping their hands-free gaming will be this year's hottest release.
