What We Can Learn From Pokemon Go’s Augmented Reality

Introduction

It’s easy to dismiss Pokemon Go as something silly, but the game has gotten so popular that it’s worth taking a closer look. With 500 million downloads and counting, this augmented reality game has helped bring augmented reality into mainstream culture. It has also been criticized for its use of geolocation tracking and data mining, which makes it clear that there are both benefits and drawbacks to living in an increasingly digital world.

Pokemon Go is an augmented reality game that uses your smartphone’s camera to superimpose monsters over the real world.

Pokemon Go is an augmented reality game that uses your smartphone’s camera to superimpose monsters over the real world. It was developed by Niantic Labs and published by The Pokemon Company, with Nintendo providing some initial funding for the project.

The game was announced in February 2016, with an open beta being released later that year for iOS and Android devices. In addition to smartphone users, it can also be played on tablets using a companion app (which requires users to log in through their Google account).

You can catch and battle Pokemon with your smartphone, but they’re also everywhere else too.

You don’t have to be playing the game to find these creatures–they’ll appear in various locations around the world, whether you’re walking down the street or sitting at home watching TV. You may even see them while out on a date!

Pokemon Go was released in July 2016, and it has been downloaded more than 500 million times.

Pokemon Go was released in July 2016, and it has been downloaded more than 500 million times. The game is free to play, available for Android and iOS devices.

The game is based on the popular Pokémon series of video games, anime, manga and collectible card games by Nintendo.

The game has been criticized for its use of augmented reality, virtual reality and geolocation tracking.

Pokemon Go uses augmented reality (AR) to superimpose Pokemon over the real world. The game has been downloaded more than 500 million times, making it the most successful mobile game in history. It has also been criticized for its use of AR and geolocation tracking, which can be used by advertisers to target players based on their location and profile information.

Other developers have made similar games with different themes, such as Harry Potter or Ghostbusters.

If you’re looking for something new, check out these games:

  • Harry Potter: Wizards Unite is a location-based augmented reality game that allows users to discover and fight fantasy creatures around them. It’s available on both Android and iOS devices.
  • Ghostbusters World lets you hunt ghosts with your friends across the globe in real-time by using your smartphone camera, or through Google Maps if you prefer not to use your camera at all times (though this will make it harder). You can also level up by doing things like catching ghosts or taking selfies while wearing the proton pack accessory provided in the game–which might sound silly but actually makes sense! I mean think about it: Isn’t one of the best parts about being an adult getting free stuff? Even if this particular thing isn’t really all that useful outside of playing this particular game…
  • The Walking Dead: Our World lets players explore their surroundings while fighting zombies from AMC’s hit series The Walking Dead alongside other players who have downloaded the app on their phones too! If there are no zombies around then don’t worry because most likely someone else nearby has already found one so just keep walking until somebody shouts “I found one!” Then run straight towards them!

Pokemon Go shows how augmented reality games can be a lot of fun while creating a culture of fear around them.

Pokemon Go is a fun game, but it’s also a cautionary tale. The game has been criticized for its use of augmented reality, virtual reality and geolocation tracking. Other developers have made similar games with different themes, such as Harry Potter or Ghostbusters.

It’s important to remember that these types of games can be used for good or evil–and we need to be aware of the potential consequences before we play them!

Conclusion

Pokemon Go is a great example of how augmented reality can be used to make games more immersive and fun. It has also created some controversy around privacy concerns, but these are problems that other developers will have to deal with as well when making similar games.
