New 'WoW Pod' Lets You Poop and Play 'World of Warcraft' Simultaneously

Those zany MIT hooligans, with their hi-tech hijinx, are at it again. Although students at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology typically reserve their witty ire for fellow geek adversaries at the California Institute of Technology, a group of them recently directed their cerebral shenanigans toward the hardcore devotees of the massively multiplayer online (MMO) game 'World of Warcraft' (WoW). Boy, do we hope they're kidding around.

Dubbed the "WoW Pod," this MIT-designed gaming cave provides "an immersive architectural solution for the advanced 'World of Warcraft' player that provides and anticipates all life's needs." The pod features easily accessible water, food packets, a stove, and a seat that doubles as a toilet.

Do the MMO fanatics really need a means to become even more absorbed and reclusive? Decide for yourself after you check the video of this absurd nerdity. One word to the wise -- if you have friends or loved ones who are currently battling an addiction to WoW's 'Wrath of the Lich King,' you may want to keep them from watching the video. Unless, of course, you don't want to see them for a few weeks. [From: TecheBlog]
