An airport in Amsterdam has an image of a fly in each of their men’s room urinals because it is the “sweet spot” for less splashing, and men instinctively aim for the fly.
According to data collected by Hoax-Slayer.com, the fly is placed in the “sweet spot” that reduces splashing from the urine stream. Men instinctively aim for the fly (for fun? to wash it down the drain? for target practice?) and it keeps the bathroom cleaner.
The fly in the urinal seems to be a brilliant way to generate customer actions in an oblique way. Is it more efficient than a indication above the urinal that says, “Watch where you aim. Keep the surfaces fresh.”? I do not know. But it’s certainly a lot more exciting.
What are other methods customer interface developers can take benefits of organic individual tendencies? What exactly is the web comparative of the urinal fly?
