Broccoli Based PokémonGO Automation


It happens that in the building I spend most of my active time is a PokeStop.

For people not into Pokemon GO,  a PokeStop is a special location which gives you goodies every 5 minutes. But for that, you need to spin the PokeStop.

Some broccoli and an Arduino later, and now I have an automated PokeStop spinner ;)

Why broccoli ?

Well, because it has enough water and enough mass to trick the capacitive sensor of my phone. Of course I could use a stylus, but I just didn't had this around. A broccoli was way easier to source.
