This urinal provides amusement to men while they pee into the urinal. The base of the urinal includes multiple sensors for detecting urine flow from a human. When urine falls on a sensor, the sensor detects urine and sends an electrical signal to a control unit. This activates a loudspeaker and video screen, to provide audio and visual feedback to the user. The combination of sight and sound may be varied by the user upon proper direction of the urine stream, and the user is actively involved in his own amusement.
Apart from amusement, the patented urinal also discourages the inadvertent or intentional diversion of urine outside the proper receptacle.
Many innovative amusement features are now available in Urinals:
