We know “Mario’s Early Years” was a let down, but this takes it a bit too far.

[JJ Hendricks] wrote in to tell us about his SNES cartridge urinal. The fully functional urinal is constructed with 40 SNES cartridges and sealed up with polyurethane. The base of the whole operation is actually not a puddle of festering urine, but instead poured polyurethane that ensures proper flow through the drain. You heard right, this urinal actually flushes! As a bit of consolation [Hendricks] plainly states in the directions:No good games were damaged in the making of this video. All the video games used in this urinal were already broken or worthless sports games”. We have featured some SNES cartridge readers before, so now you have something to do with all the leftover hardware! Gross.

    Now, what do you do when you have one of these in your homeb?

    Install one of these:

    All those little nooks and crannies…difficult to clean. Seems extremely unhygienic.

  3. AVGN says:

    LJN games..???

  4. Hackerspacer says:

    I agree. There is a reason surfaces you piss on tend to be made out of non porous, flat and therefore easier to clean surfaces.

    Disgusting. The picture at the end with urine is TMI…
    Lots of people with poor imagination therefore plenty of time in their hands out there

  6. Dissy says:

    Yea when they said it was sealed in polyurethane, I assumed they meant all of the cartridges were put together then one huge coat of the stuff over everything, so as the polyurethane was the only exposed surface…
    That at least would have been hygenic and easily cleaned.

    This mess will be just that. Eww, and wait until the paper labels start pealing off
    *Insert Mr Yuck face*

    it says there was polyurethan involved it’s smooth. dumb people with their lack of reading abillities.

  8. Hackerspacer says:

    It wasn’t clear if the entire inside was PU treated or not. It was noted that the drain was PU and not urine however.

    GOD THEY USED SUPER SCOPE 6
    how sad
    I have that game. It’s fun to play with friends!
    and for the rest
    All those donor carts gone… would have been great for homebrew

    some things just shouldn’t happen. for instance, bag hangers that hang your purse off the table. this is about as useless as a motorcycles ashtray. All crap aside though, from an artistic pov this would be an awesome piece to feature in a gallery with similar projects. I can just imagine an entire tub built with that shitty ET game on Atari. Bonus points if he makes a commode and makes TP out of the labels from the carts he used.

  11. Paul Potter says:

    An interesting make.

  12. zacdee316 says:

    A little piece of me died today. And it wasn’t from an earthquake / flood.

  13. Hackerspacer says:

    I rewatched the video and the only part that has a urethane coating was the drain. The rest of it does not appear to or if it does, it is so thin that it only serves to protect the labels but does not cover the nooks and crannies of the cartridges, so to speak. So cleaning this means breaking out the toothbrush. Not fun.

  14. Hirudinea says:

    These guys must have been pissed when they made it!

  15. steve says:

    This rocks! Awesome hack! Like it!

  16. reportingsjr says:

    I read the guide that came with this and the creator does list that he sprays polyurethane on all of the cartridges. It’s not a completely flat surface, but I doubt it would be that hard to clean like some of the people above are saying.

  17. Piku says:

    I’d like one that contains all the FIFA games. I’d enjoy peeing on those.

    Needs more Arduino and twitter. Maybe a sealed SNES that is pee controlled.

  18. Stan says:

    To bad they aren’t Sony games. I would great satisfaction pissing on a Sony product.

  19. Frogz says:

    this isnt real…
    hackaday is trolling us again..
    please tell me this is the case….
    please…

  20. D_ says:

    So this is not imaginative? Give me break. While I’m not moved to duplicate it, it’s still imaginative IMO. Me I’d hunt down one of those foot operated flush valve sometimes still seen in US government buildings. The hand of the last guy to flush may be using the hand he just held his wiener with.

  21. anti-fanboi says:

    Cool! I can’t wait for the toilet bowl made of Arduinos… Maybe even a sewerage plant made of ‘Duinos

  22. Hackerspacer says:

    I would rather touch a wiener than a hand. Both are just skin but a hand touches thousands of things a day. Probably can’t say that about a wiener. Unless you are *really* talented.

  23. Olivier says:

    @D_ @Hackerspace: so, you don’t wash your hands after going to the toilet? It’s even more disgusting that this “toilet”.

  24. strider_mt2k says:

    Better pissed off than pissed on, as you can see…

  25. Tyler says:

    This is a disgrace to SNES.

    This belongs in The Nerd’s basement.
