BYU Students Find a Creative Way for Kids in the Hospital to Play Pokémon Go


What a creative way to turn something you love into a way to serve others.

The wildly popular Pokémon Go craze has swept the globe. Now up to 30 million downloads and counting in the U.S., this game has players of all ages on their feet for hours.

But what about those who physically can't get up to go play?

A group of Brigham Young University students came up with a creative idea and partnered with Primary Children's Hospital to bring the Pokémon Go craze to those children who normally wouldn't get the chance to play.

It's called "Pokémon Go for Good" and uses screen-sharing technology to help children play Pokémon Go from their hospital beds.
