Pokemon Go, the most popular mobile game in history, entertains over 20 million daily users. Part of the game involves hatching Pokemon eggs, which depends on how many kilometers are walked by the player. Although we recommend playing the game as intended, since getting exercise and being outside is part of the game, there is an interesting hack that can be done with an ODROID that allows eggs to be hatched by replaying a typical route on an ODROID and spoofing the GPS location to Pokemon Go. It’s a proof-of-concept project, so we don’t recommend trying it with your own account!
We also present a unique 3D-printed laptop project called Redtop, along with an inexpensive XU4 case that you can print on a standard inkjet or laser printer. Michael continues his high-performance computing tutorial with a guide to installing Hadoop, Adrian concludes his network security series on WPA networks and shares some useful backup scripts, Bo chronicles his adventures in creating a modern car computer, and @withrobot clarifies the difference in camera shutter mechanisms. For gaming enthusiasts, Tobias features Sega Saturn emulation, and we take a look at Pac-Man 256 for Android.
