AR Pokemon Go Play Modes: The Crazy History of Augmented Reality

Augmented reality has been there since time immemorial, more or less half a century, only that didn’t start using this term until the 1990s. However, it is now when it starts to charge interest thanks to their increasingly more numerous applications. The most current standard bearer has to Pokemon Go, the new augmented reality game.

But it has great potential for dozens of different applications in the life (and I think I’ll take short) today has been dedicated mostly to the entertainment. Then we will make a small and crazy review by our dear augmented reality Android phones.

Dinosaurs, fish and more courtesy of Sony

With the arrival of the family Xperia Z Sony came a way of entertainment for your camera, the effect of AR. In this mode you could choose a possible scenario, keep the camera more or less quiescent and that scenario was generated which, incidentally, could interact partially moving objects or causing an action touching on something.

It is true that it is something that you won’t use much, but you can apply for certain moments of entertainment. What holder of a mobile family Xperia Z did not you put a diving to an acquaintance to avoid choking in the virtual water? Or who has not emulated the dinosaurs return to Earth and making roaring to fearsome Tiranosaurus Rex?

You can always scare your friends making a selfie you are between expired and rotten zombie level and leaving you a message saying “do you remember that girl on Friday night? As thus has left me the doomed this weekend, had it known he had quit you take you”.

The applications of this AR Effect the Sony Xperia has tantaa variety that I start to cry of emotion: I’ve put helmets to my friends, I fact that a Rex stalk my dog (photo above) which, by the way, seems to have seen, and many other things I have done. What beautiful is the reality augmented and what bad allergy to pollen.

Project Tango, a giant step for augmented reality to adapt to everyday life

But not everything was going to be dinosaurs, zombificaciones or hoods, eventually had to take the step to give utility to this feature to our day to day. Lenovo Project Tango was the first phablet born from this project, and during his presentation became more than one demonstration.

From play dominoes without having to use chips to test how are certain furniture in your home, things were so tested in this presentation. Although not everything went well, it is obvious that, because of his youth, it is likely to improve, and will do so, of that we are sure.

Imagine measure the space you want to devote to, for example, a table or a sofa, and do it with your smartphone (to measure I mean), without the need for a tape measure. You would help to optimize the space in your home and not have to break your back moving furniture it is that they do not fit because there is not enough space.

Tango is a turning point that opens dozens of doors to different applications, such as information aiming simply to a local and on the screen appears the stock of certain products, the schedule or the menu of the day depending on the type of room that is. It requires effort on the part of businesses, but it worth.

Pokemon Go: physically move to capture Frankster

Pokemon Go just of land on Android, it’s a game in which you have to take to the streets in order to capture any pokemon. Does not need to make any gesture to pull the pokeball, except touching the screen. The most disturbing for others is creating that you’re doing them a photo to treason while are excited to capturing pokemon.

The game is generating enough hype to be newcomer to the store of our operating system, although it can be that in certain cases it is having errors. Those who played in his day the Pokemon on their Game Boy, however, have the opportunity of move through the streets to add some of these adorable bugs to your collection.

That Yes, it can happen that you can capture some pokemon in situations especially intimate, as a comment on Digg about the game, he had captured two pokemon while it was descomiendo (or desdesayunando if it was in the morning) at work. Is it true or a joke? Gives the same, the situation is very romantic, although these pokemon are somewhat degenerated.

Although it is more than likely that you have missed several chapters on augmented reality, I think that these are the most important and, who knows, maybe soon we can use the augmented reality in many more places that in our mobile. Perhaps in cars (there are some, but imagine you see it at all, no matter your range).
