Games include “Graffiti Eraser” in which a user tries to aim at the pressure sensor in the urinal to erase virtual graffiti on the display.

Another is called “The North Wind and The Sun and Me,” in which the strength of a urine stream determines the extent to which a virtual girl’s skirt gets blown up by a digital wind.
