A YouTuber Turned a Toilet Into a Gaming PC

Look, we’ve all stumbled upon some wacky stuff when making our way down the YouTube rabbit hole, but few of us ever expected to come across a functional toilet that also contains a gaming PC built into its tank. And yet here we are in 2022 at the peak of humanity’s technological achievements.

As noticed by Eurogamer, YouTuber Basically Homeless has gone through the unusual but utterly captivating process of building a gaming PC into a custom toilet tank. And while any PC in a toilet is notable, he figured it was worth opting for a moderately powerful “12700 & 3060” option while he was at it.

It’s fair, of course, because if you can’t play the newest games on your pooper, why even bother, right?

Not content with mobile or handheld gaming while doing his business, Basically Homeless set off on his journey to 120hz toilet gaming by building a wall inside the toilet’s tank using plexiglass, allowing for a much-needed barrier between the PC components and water. Although it failed on his first attempt, a healthy amount of Flexseal seems to have gotten the job done.

Other modifications include spots cut out on the top of the tank for a cooling fan and on the front of the tank for showing off all of his hard work. He even went so far as to add RGB lighting to keep with traditional expectations. It’s all as staggeringly impressive as it is odd.

Basically Homeless stated that building the gaming toilet also allowed him to learn more about plumbing than he’d ever expected, so he was able to gain some valuable skills along the way. But most importantly, he seemed to thoroughly enjoy the process of building the gaming toilet, and he’s certain to equally enjoy flushing away the competition during his, uh, gaming sessions.
