Strap Your Phone To An RC Car To Hatch Pokemon GO Eggs

More effective than toy trains and more humane than strapping your phone to the dog, radio-controlled cars seem like an excellent to way to hatch Pokemon GO eggs. Aside from actually walking, of course.

Worn out after a long day of actually walking, YouTube RC car enthusiast Theibault combined his passion for tiny vehicles with his drive to catch them all, and it seems to be working out nicely.

Since Pokemon GO uses GPS tracking instead of an accelerometer for tracking distance travelled, shaking your phone will do you no good, and setting up a train track or other in-circles pursuits have to be pretty wide to register as movement. A good radio controlled vehicle has plenty of range, plus they can drive slowly enough that the game doesn't see it as just being inside a car.

Plus RC cars are so much fun. You can even set up a remote access program so you can catch any critters the RC vehicle runs across.

Or, conversely, you could just walk. I don't recommend it. It's hard.


    Lifehacker is telling us how to get fit and kotaku is telling us how to cheat at pokimon go so we don't have to walk.

    You guys must have some interesting Christmas office parties........

    Ceiling fan works better since you have to do even less

      I've yet to see a 5 metre wide ceiling fan.

        i've seen some really stupid crazy huge ones in pubs and stuff, but yeah never in someone's house. If you're house is big enough for a 5m ceiling fan then you can probably just get the butler to take your phone for a walk to hatch your eggs lol
