There’s been all manor of contraptions rigged up by Pokemon Go players to help hatch their eggs without having to actually walk around and get some exercise. Some people are attaching their phones to fans or roombas. Others are pulling out their old toy train sets and letting Thomas the Tank Engine log the miles.
In Japan, the homeland of Pokemon and tentacle porn, someone has figured out that if you hold your vibrator against your screen, it convinces the phone that you are walking and it gives you the distance for the credit. I’m not sure how good that rapid vibration is for the electronics of your phone, but at least you saved yourself the horror of having to set foot outside.
