Man creates robot to automate 3DS StreetPass so he can eat a sandwich

The future is here

With over 1,000 puzzle pieces available for the Nintendo 3DS’ StreetPass Puzzle Swap game, it takes a considerable amount of time to collect them all. Now one man has invented a robot to automate the process of pressing A multiple times, saving him tens of seconds per use and allowing him free time to “eat a sandwich.” 

The future is here, and the future is scary. I wonder if this guy has a HomePass setup — it’s a homebrew application to get StreetPasses from the comfort of your own home. I used to but something changed recently and I need to go through the process again.
