Apologies if posted before.
New marketing invention lets urinal in the Men's room talk to you while you do your business. Could this be a new campaign tool for politicians???

The Interactive Urinal Communicator

Now it won't be possible for a man to pee in peace, as urinals across the country will be equipped to broadcast public messages. Urinals have been fitted with the Wizmark Urinal Communicator, a waterproof, disposable drain cover embedded with electronics that senses a visitor and then relays an audio message.

The proximity sensor detects someone approaching within about 30 to 60 centimetres. A few seconds later, the detection lights flash, and a pre-recorded audio announcement starts playing. The device has a nine-centimetre diameter display area containing a lenticular screen that features multiple images or text that, and as the person moves toward the urinal, they appear to change from one graphic to the other.

The mastermind of the Wizmark, Dr. Richard Deutsch, asserts that the uses are limitless, as everything from public service announcements to beer commercials could find their way in your stall.

Just add this in with some American school districts trying to let advertisers put tv screens in school bus seat backs, in order to bombard kids with even more bullcrap commercials than they already get at home.

Hell meet Handbasket.

Definitely unlimited possibilities though gives a whole new twist to For a good time call.....

I read an article about this also and they talked about having anti drunk driving information playing when you take a leak. Kinda makes since but who wants to listen to anything while taking a leak.

I think they better not sell ad time to Enzyte (or any other well known male enhancement pills)

I did the research for that campaign! (Unless another one beat us to the punch.) The Wizmark came about after we'd completed the research, so it wasn't part of our study, but I'm hoping to be involved in the evaluation of it.

"Have you seen or heard any messages about drunk driving...

on TV?
on the radio?
in your urinal?
in the newspaper?"

When evaluating I'd make it a point to mention that if they're going to use talking urinals for drinking too much info to make sure they use a man's voice.

I'm not a proponent of property damage but I'm also not a proponent of having devices speak to me while I'm doing my thing. I'm torn.
