Visiting a public urinal in Japan may soon become much more fun following news that Sega has piloted games consoles in selected loos in the country.


The toilet consoles, or "Toylets" as games giant Sega calls them, allow men to while away the time spent in the urinal by taking part in a series of contests.


Bearing curious names such “Graffiti Eraser" and "Battle! Milk From Nose!" the games work by means of pressure sensors fitted within the urinals plus a screen mounted on the wall above the unit.


new ideas and standards the cleaning industry so much deserves.


Sponsored by the National Cleaning Suppliers Association of Australia (NCSA), Cleanscene 11 will be the biggest Exhibition and Seminar program ever held in Melbourne for the cleaning industry. Sitting alongside Safety in Action 2011 Exhibition, on 5th – 7th April, will give Cleanscene the largest visitor participation an exhibition of this kind can expect.


The CEO of the NCSA, Terry Fraser has been revived from the dead after having retired from the cleaning industry eight years ago due to ill health. He has had a new lease of life and the Aussies are pleased to have him back chasing


In a recent interview, Terry suggested Australia lagged behind the UK by not having a national curriculum and certification program for cleaning operators similar to the BICS program. Australia has very good training organisations and most of the major cleaning organisations recognise the importance of training but the downside is the property owners, Government departments and managers don’t recognise, reward or differentiate between companies that have qualified trained cleaning operators and companies with cleaners thrown in at the deep-end.


Terry hasn’t stopped there, he is presently helping to establish the Cleaning and Hygiene Council Australia (CHCA), which is aimed at establishing an umbrella organisation for the cleaning industry and a national training curriculum and certification program is high on the list on the council’s agenda.


The aim of the “Toylet” scheme, which has been piloted in four locations in Tokyo during January, is to focus the user’s attention on advertisements between the games.


The games themselves require men to use the strength and direction of their urine to accomplish various tasks. One game, for example, involves washing a wall clean of graffiti while another pits the skills of the present urinal user against those of his predecessor.


So how does a Toylet “winner” convince his friends about the high score he has achieved in the urinal? Simple. The game allows him to download his results on to a memory stick and take it away with him.
