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.
