A minor league baseball team in PA has installed hands-free video games for patrons to play while using the restroom. But how would one control the game without the use of hands of fingers? Brian finds out and expresses the horrors of such an idea.


Jon Schaeffer, Director of New Media for the IronPigs baseball team, shows the new urinal gaming system at at Coca-Cola Park. The park will be the first sports arena anywhere to have the game. Lehigh Valley Urology Specialty Care will provide the marketing messages. As a patron approaches the urinal, sensors detect his presence. A quick video or message appears on the screen, but as the individual steps forward, the game kicks in. The sensors track the individual’s stream, and when that stream hits a target points are earned. (Donna Fisher / The Morning Call)
