restroom signTechnology has the power to improve our lives in unexpected ways. RunPee.com is a wiki-style site that taps the power of the hive to determine the best bathroom break times while watching a movie.

The project is the brainchild of Flash Platform programmer Dan Florio, aka polyGeek. Florio half-jokes that he was inspired to create the site while watching the 187-minute-long King Kong.

Movie fans are invited to contribute their own opinions. Moderated postings give a description of a scene, how many minutes in it is, and how long a “break” is available. There’s even a description of what transpires during the suggested break time, which to avoid unwanted spoilers is only legible after a specific mouse click.

Mobile and iPhone app versions of RunPee.com are in the works in response to overwhelming demand, Florio said.
