Video: If there’s one thing Pokemon GO is missing (besides functioning servers, trading, battling, a tutorial, serious nerfs to Vaporeon’s stats, a clear indication of the rules surrounding gym battles and easier ways to acquire Stardust) it’s a bespoke Pokeball-throwing experience that’s indistinguishable from hate-lobbing a phone into the pavement. Well, scratch that one off the to-do list.
The Useless Duck Company — who have previously made chainsaw toilet paper dispensers and door locks that definitely aren’t for masturbating — claim to have hacked the accelerometer in a Nexus smartphone. Now any kind of forward motion translates to an in-game throw. What could go wrong?
It works like a charm.
Just think of all the eggs you’ll hatch walking to the nearest phone repair shop multiple times a day.
