In the ever increasing stream of technology based goods and products, a new and interactive urinal is introduced into the market: the Poe Urinal.

This playfully interactive urinal is designed by Indian designer Mani. The device is meant to target institutional bathrooms. The playful urinal experience is triggered while a person relieves himself onto a digital interface that is connected to a polka dot-inspired pinboard sensors.

Based off of a cartoon character called 'Poe,' the urinal projects the cartoon on the wall. When the user first approaches the toilet, Poe is seen saying "Feeling Bloated," while the user unzips, the cartoon character moves itself on a scale and upon completion, Poe shrinks in size and is seen to breathe a sigh of relief.

The series of Poe animations are extremely fun and cute, including sound effects thanking the user for relieving himself.
