Can a rasp pi be modded to somehow run android apps?

I know the answer is probably no and this is far fetched, I am just trying to imagine how you could setup a rasp pi zero on a drone running periscope. They released an update in May that allows you to stream from multiple drones/go pro cameras. I'm sure some linux guru could hack together a solution to stream from a v1.3 to periscope somehow, might need to be streamed to a base station and then that rig would have bluestacks or something running on it w/ the app.

Wishful thinking, AFAIK such a thing does not exist. Take the source of the android app, and rewrite it for Debian linux with a graphics library supported by Raspbian (QT), then compile it for the ARM CPU used in the PI.

A simpler possibility does not exist?

For example, an emulator that allows you to run Android apps?
