    Question Have you used a phone in the toilet?

    London-based Captive Media has been busing installing a novel gaming device in Europe over the past few months: It uses a video game console mounted above a urinal and an infrared sensor detecting the directional flow of a user's urine stream as the game control. You can see a story about this new gaming device here:

    singularityhub.com/2013/01/08/go-with-the-flow-captive-media-raises-700k-for-its-urinal-video-games/.

    When I brought this new device to the attention of our editorial staff, and inquired about whether they had any ideas about a weekly poll question, they were immediately drawn to the observation at the beginning of the article that "a significant number of mobile phone users admit to using their phones while in the bathroom (explaining how some phones end up in the toilet)" and the reference to the following survey on the topic: Survey: 75 percent of Americans admit to using phone while in bathroom.

    Besides answering this week's poll question about whether you multi-task smartphone and toilet time, be sure to share any first-hand or second-hand stories about phones ending up underwater. As well as your thoughts about the future of toilet video gaming.

    I think having a dump, most people have. I tend to play Scrabble if I've had a rough lunch! Standing up? Nah.
    As for the future of toilet gaming: It's a flash in the toilet pan. Just a gimmick.

    Just to note - if you haven't clicked through to read the story, please do. It's AMAZING. There's video content that demonstrates the games, and I really want one of these in my basement bathroom for when I host poker night at my place.

    Also, this has to make everyone wonder about borrowing someone's phone. (Note: Someone else made this observation, but I thought it was worth sharing).

    It uses a video game console mounted above a urinal and an infrared sensor detecting the directional flow of a user's urine stream as the game control.
    My first question was how long can you possibly play for? The site agreeably answered the average is 55 seconds.

    Pretty entertaining for most guys I know that did something similar the old fashioned way by writing their names in the snow. Oh how us girls would swoon if they would write our name. Right.

    Now I suppose us girls will have to hear how they played much longer and were more skillfully accurate compared to the next guy. :

    I am fairly sure I have and I definitely remember my phone going off in my pocket while I was standing at a urinal. Thankfully my superior aiming skills meant I avoided any embarrassing mishaps.

    I'm also interested to know if Maria's phone is waterproof..

    I also thought about the "using someones phone" thing but I never use anyones phone so I dont care. If they want to use mine, their choice...
