Nunk on Droise

Nunk on Droise is an art installation where noise is made depending on how drunk you are. In a configuration that could be called a cthoilet, the sensors shown above are alcohol sensors. Though we initially thought this would be testing urine, the description states that it tests the breath of the participant. Unfortunately there aren’t any schematics or code, though you can see how it is all assembled from the flickr pool. You can also see a video demonstration of the prototype.

    That noise is going to cause machine-killing violence if you are drunk.

  3. Aphex13 says:

    If you’re drunk enough to have your face in the bowl, then a breathalyser is kinda pointless. lol

  4. fish says:

    ‘how drunk you are’ is not if you’re drunk or not

  5. medix says:

    Looks to me that if you’re *really* blasted, anything that makes noise is just going to make you (as someone already mentioned) a. smash the offending device, and b. hurl all over the place.

  6. piku says:

    Don’t worry, it’s “art”. It’s not some contraption to install in your house.

  7. M4CGYV3R says:

    Why not make some cool MIDI or other DJ controller out of this? Then all the DJ will have to do is sip on his drizzle and blow on some little flexi-things. Also, what an excellently obnoxious selection of sounds.

  8. Dan says:

    So, if this is art, then it could only be “observed” when the people in the museum are wasted.

  9. Janez D. says:

    I am really and truly sorry but what this looks like to me is an abuse of the Arudino platform!

  10.   says:

    I may not know art, but I know what I like, and I don’t like this.

  11. R says:

    I’m thinking this device is going to have one or two uses at max before. I’ve never known a drunk person to go to a toilet without making a mess, so I think after the first real drunk person there is going to be so much piss and vomit on/in/around this thing that it’ll never be ‘clean’ again.

  12. Stopit says:

    Sooooo… how are people supposed to go number 2 without this turning into a scene from a bad Japanese porno?

  13. Peter says:

    Not a problem, when you are drunk enough you’ll probably do the number 2 in the kitchen sink anyways…. :P

    This is…retarded?

    Another Krafty Caleb post…go figure.

    So that’s what goes for “art” these days eh?


    //whoever made that crapper – don’t quit your day job.

  17. zombie_kicker says:

    I’d probably end up pissing all over the seat and/or those sensors if I can’t flip it up. Move the sensor arms up to the tank cover or lid to avoid such things.

  18. jeffreeey says:

    what a piss poor post. If you have to piss with the seat down then you are going to piss on something.

    oh and u could just piss in the sink, which is what i always do

  20. maathieu says:

    @zombie_kicker: It’s a well-known fact that men don’t flip the lid up before pissing, specially when drunk…

    Although as far as I’m concerned I would have built an alcohol detector by measuring the distance between the piss and the toilet bowl.

  21. Spork says:

    That would probably be better.
    Then if it were really far off, (walls or something) you could implement the obnoxious sound and the user would proceed to vomit, presumably in the toilet that he could not piss in.

  22. Eutactic says:

    Iä Cthoilet!

    Not sure what part of ‘art installation’ people are mistaking for ‘heavy duty practical appliance’ but this may actually be moderately awesome.

  23. what kid of art is this….
