Waternet is (amongst other things) responsible for cleaning the canals in Amsterdam, a pretty big task in itself. But each year on “Queensday” they come under siege from millions of people consuming excess amounts of alcohol, who in turn, use the canals as a very convenient toilet…

So this year, Achtung teamed with Waternet to create digital installations on numerous outdoor toilets to gamify the human necessity into something that was better than just peeing in the canal! Rigged up with Arduino boards and pressure sensors, the outdoor toilets became gaming stations in multi-player events to float the duck to the top! Very cool concept.
