One of the most fun parts of Pokémon Go — an augmented reality game that allows players to find and catch Pokémon in the world around them — is hatching mystery eggs that are hidden near special stops. But the thing about eggs, is in order to hatch them, you have to actually move around. 

But one YouTuber has come up with a simple hack to make sure your eggs hatch in a jiffy without you ever having to leave your house, you lazy slug.

According to YouTuber Rusty Cage, if you put your phone on top of a turntable, it will think you're walking in circles — without you having to physically move a muscle.
