Genius Plays Pokémon Go with Drone

by Shane McGlaun

So what do you do if you really like Pokémon Go, but don’t agree with Nintendo’s evil plans to make you go outside? You go full on MacGyver like this dude and strap your Android device to a DJI drone and fly to catch ’em all. This guy may be a genius, even if it is cheating.

This guy strapped his Android smartphone to the drone and set it aloft whilst mirroring the phone screen to his laptop using AirDroid. This way he can pilot the done, see where the Pokémon are and then catch them.

The only thing it lacks is offensive weapons to shoo away any would be Pokémon catchers before they get your bounty. I wonder if the slow flying drone will trick the phone into thinking you are walking so you get those eggs hatched.
