Almost everyone on the face of the earth like to use their alone time while, er, relieving themselves, to do some serious thinking. Though magazines have been a popular source of entertainment for anyone sitting on the loo, people visiting public urinals find it hard to kill the few minutes it takes to empty their bladders. That’s where an interactive installation like Toink-The Urinal can come in really handy, no pun intended. The public toilet installation simulates the feeling of one drawing on a canvas with an ink and brush with the brushstrokes being shown on the screen above the urinals mimicking the motion of one’s pee hitting the walls of the urinal.
Created by designer J.C. Yeh in collaboration with Billie Tsou, the Toink takes the age old art of “drawing with piss” to sophisticated new level allowing the average male urban dweller to delight in the pastime every time they need to use a public loo.
Users can choose between three interesting themes including wind, water and ink to create novel artwork using the flow of their urine over the walls of the urinal with the interactive panels mimicking the patterns on the wall directly in front of the user. It’s almost a little tragic that users can’t save and download their pee art to their phones cause we think that would make one heck of a killer story at first dates!
