How Augmented Reality works: The Pokemon Go Case
While many people don't believe it, augmented reality games like Pokemon Go are here to stay. And contrary to what some people think, this might be good news.

However, we have reached a more sophisticated level of technology. Internet and game consoles are no longer the only way to join games. Now character and purpose have been transferred to the real world we inhabit.


In other words, you no longer have to "enter" the world that is programmed to play: the game is everywhere, which can be seen on a mobile screen.

This is how the augmented reality game works and the positive impact it provides:

Augmented Reality projects the virtual world into reality interactively. Augmented reality games work on mobile and tablets. However, glasses are already available for this purpose.

This game is run through an application that you download to your phone or tablet. Once activated, they not only display pictures of the surrounding scenery, but also characters and other game elements on the device's screen.

Without a cellphone, you only see the real world. On mobile, this visualizes the real world as a scenario for virtual subjects. By adding these characters, reality becomes enriched, "added."

For AR to occur, the device needs to capture images from a real scenario: this happens through a cell phone camera. Then from the captured image, the installed application will interpret it and project virtual objects in real time. This game application comes fully ready to guide players through the rules, pointing out errors and positive results. Interactivity is total. This interactivity goes even further in the direction of buying and selling accounts. You can buy Pokemon Go accounts to increase your level of play.

And Pokémon Go is not the first augmented reality game released: before that, for example, Ingress, where rival teams fight secretly for cities in the world, and Zombies, Run !, over the zombie apocalypse. They spread everywhere.

It is important to note that augmented reality is not the same as virtual reality. Augmented reality interacts with the real world around it; Fully virtual, yeah, virtual - without contact with the environment. This is a totally separate universe.

Benefits of Augmented Reality Games

Some people are afraid that young people will spend more time playing, losing interest in other things. After all, augmented reality makes any game more interesting.

However, if restrictions are imposed and moderate game use, some benefits may be realized.

In the case of Pokemon Go, people who don't move much who have spent hours playing in front of the screen now get up and walk on the streets and park hunting decent little monsters.

They connect with other players they meet along the way, increasing their social circle.

This game is an opportunity for parents and children to hang out and engage in shared games, increasing family ties.

The game reportedly encourages autistic children to interact better with the world around them. Known for difficulties in communication and relationships with people, these small children can even talk and make friends.

A hospital in the United States is already using Pokémon Go to encourage younger patients to get out of their stretchers, stimulating mobility.

However, attention must be given: it is very important to be aware of the surrounding environment. This will prevent accidents such as being hit, tripping and even becoming a victim of theft. It doesn't go to bad places. Never play at night.

In the near future virtual reality applications can be used to learn more in detail, help in sports and sports, motivate children to brush their teeth properly, among other purposes.

You will be able to open a book, point your phone and watch the scene described happening in front of you, or collect characters as you wish using a hologram. Interesting right?
