Just what the world needs: Urinals equipped with video games.

The Japanese entertainment company Sega has installed "Toylets" in male restrooms at four bars and games arcades in Tokyo, according to the Guardian.

With names like "Splashing Battle," the games use pressure sensors attached to eye-level screens and require men to, well, aim accordingly.

The most tasteless game of the bunch involves a Marilyn Monroe-esque image of a woman and a floating skirt controlled by the users' urine stream.

"The greater the stream's intensity, the higher the skirt travels," according to the Guardian.

The Toylets will be in place for the month of January, and Sega has no plans to market them commercially, apparently.

We can only hope that's true.
