The Pokédrone Lets You Catch Pokémon Remotely

Pokemon Go is well on its way to taking over the world. That being said, some players find the whole Pokéwalking thing quite a bother. If exploration and exercise aren’t really your thing, there’s always the Pokédrone.

Tech start-up TRNDLabs has refitted one of its nano-drones to hack the massively-popular game: simply connect via WiFi and the Go app will use the Pokédrone’s GPS and camera, allowing players to fly their way over to those creatures that are just out of reach.

Head on over to TRNDlabs’ website if you’re interested in receiving more info on the device’s availability.

It’ll be interesting to see how long this concept lasts: on the one hand, remote Pokémon-catching may help prevent the car accidents and incidents that have sprung up as a result of the app’s release; on the other, Nintendo and Niantic will almost definitely penalize and bounce users for gaming the system.
