Get that old Nintendo Game Boy out of the attic folks. It just got a new modern use. Gautier Hattenberger has figured out a way to control a drone using the old handheld gaming brick. Now he’s flying with power!
Pokémon Go is blowing up like crazy. Everyone is playing it and getting out and walking. But what if you are lazy and don’t feel like walking just to catch Pokémon? We already saw one person playing the game using a drone, and now it seems that it’s turning into a trend.
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.

Yes, this looks like a cooler on six wheels. If you put some handlebars on it, it could be something you see at the NASCAR track between races with a redneck atop it. In fact, it’s a very swanky autonomous wheeled delivery system for packages and food that is in testing by Starship Technologies.

Drones make almost every activity better. Even piñata smashing.

I am a big fan of the Half-Life franchise and like most fans, I am still pissed that we haven’t seen a new Half-Life game in years. I have lots of memories of playing that game and smashing stuff with my crowbar.
