A YouTuber built a PC from a working toilet, creating what could be the first toilet capable of both handling your waste and playing your game. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. What a world we live in!
As discovered by Eurogamer, YouTuber Basically Homeless has cut a deal with electronics store Microcenter to create a gaming PC inside an actual toilet, complete with all the plumbing and water involved. It’s a wild thing, but not surprising. You see, as long as we have toilets and video games, a lot of people have tried to combine them. I even heard that siren and try to poop and play at the same time. Countless others do the same while playing games on their phones.
But basically Homeless doesn’t want to simply bring a Switch, phone, or even a Steam Deck into the bathroom. Instead, he wanted to create a setup that would allow him to play a 120hz FPS shooter with a mouse and keyboard while sitting on the toilet. And in his video he records the whole processI was shocked both at the end result and the lack of planning.
The way this thing works is that the half tank holds all the toilet bowls and toilet bowls along with the water. Then he built a “Water Wall” out of glass panels and glue. On the other side of the wall are all the computer parts. The idea is to keep them separate, allowing you to flush the working toilet while gaming. Additionally, built into the lid is a fan to help keep the PC cool.
You probably won’t be surprised to learn that the first time he connected the toilet to the water supply, his “Wall of Water” attacked together failed and he ended up having to use an entire can of Flexseal inside the tank to protect valuable PC electronics. However, now that he’s got everything working (including the RGB lighting), the PC/toilet hybrid is oddly impressive. Thanks to a large cutout at the front, you can see both the working toilet and the running PC.
According to Basic Homeless, he had to learn the basics of plumbing and how to cut porcelain to create this freaky PC. The end result is both people start a conversation and a man can now fix his own toilet. It’s really a win, win situation.
