Feel Right.

Recently, some nerds figured out that if you build a robot that can mash videogame controllers 8,000 times per second, you can beat games like Super Mario Brothers 3 in less than a second.

Kind of makes you want to go ahead and shift focus away from tracking Pokemon and towards tracking a Pokemon Go defeating robot. That way you can catch ’em all ASAP and get back to enjoying your time outside the house more fully.

Here’s some things worth putting the Pokeballs away for — even temporarily. — Cory Graves
