Pokemon Go has done a great service to the world health. Or would’ve done, if we wouldn’t hack it all the time. The game suggests, you breed Pokemon eggs by walking them around, but [DannyMcMurray] has a better idea: Strapping your smartphone to the propeller of a fan and taking them for spin that way.
He shows how he built a Pokemon incubator using just a rubber band and a fan. This little trick saves you from physically leaving the house, but the process is still painstakingly slow: The time-lapse spin in the video results in about 0.01 km of progress, 0.5 % of the required 2 km. You need to spin your phone for over two hours until the little fellow hatches.
That said, we’re still left scratching our heads. Pokemon Go depends heavily on GPS. Why would the egg incubator not be constrained to this as well. If you have the answer, or have tried this and can confirm that it works, we want to hear from you in the comments below.
