A YouTuber built a computer out of a public toilet, creating what might be the first toilet capable of handling waste and toys Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. What a world we live in!
As I spotted it EurogamerYouTuber Basically Homeless has struck a deal with electronics store Microcenter to build a gaming computer inside a real toilet, complete with all the plumbing and water it entails. It’s a wild thing, but it’s not surprising. You see, as long as we’ve had toilets and video games, many have tried to combine them. I even heard that siren call and Try to defecate and play at the same time. Countless others do this while playing games on their phones.
But basically Homeless didn’t want to bring a key, a phone, or even a Steam Deck into the bathroom. Instead, he wanted to create a setup that would allow him to play shooting games at 120Hz using a mouse and keyboard while sitting on the toilet. In his video, he documents the entire processI was shocked by the end results and the lack of planning.
The way this thing works is that half of the tank holds all the parts of the toilet and pops in with the water. Then he built a “water wall” of plexiglass and glue. On the other side of the wall are all the computer parts. The idea was to keep them separate, allowing you to flush the toilet while playing games. Also, a fan is included in the cover to help keep the computer cool.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that the first time he connected the toilet to the water supply, the breached “water wall” failed and ended up with Use a full package of Flexseal Inside the tank to protect valuable computer electronics. However, now that everything is working (including the RGB lighting), the ultimate computer/toilet hybrid is oddly impressive. Thanks to the large opening in the front, you can see both the working toilet and the working computer.
According to Basically Homeless, he had to learn basic plumbing and how to cut porcelain to create this odd PC. The end result is a conversation starter and a man who can now fix his toilet. Really win, win situation.
