OK, that headline might be a bit of a stretch, but Pokemon Go robots keep popping up, and there’s probably no end in sight.
Last week we introduced you to Pokemon Go-Bot that uses an iOS app, a robotics control program and GPS spoofing to help you play Pokemon Go 24/7/365. Now we there’s videos of two new robot prototypes that will help gamers play Pokemon Go.
The video atop the page is from Let’s Robot, a four-person startup in Berkeley, California, that can play Pokemon Go with input from human players. As The Huffington Post notes, this robot has six wheels and uses a plotter to interact with a cellphone’s screen.
“People who don’t have access to go around and play Pokemon Go can at least have some experience with this robot and be able to participate with everyone else,” said Jillian Ogle, head of Let’s Robot.
Then there’s this robot from the Instagram page of Virginia Western Community College (VWCC). Robotics Trends has reached out for additional details, which are scarce at the moment, but VWCC designed a mobile robot that moves around for you while you sit on your behind and chase Pokemons. Check out the video below.
