Niantic had a bit more say to say about this Pokemon Go demo on its blog post.
“At this year’s Microsoft Ignite conference, we announced we are collaborating with Microsoft on new kinds of experiences that advance innovation at the seam of the digital and physical world, and connect people together in brand new ways.
We offered a glimpse of the potential for new AR experiences by showcasing a proof-of-concept Pokémon GO demo. While this demo is not intended for consumer use, it offers an early glimpse into the future evolutions in both software and hardware.”
While it’s not meant for consumer use, it’s a really great proof-of-concept of what can be done with the power of Microsoft Hololens. Pokemon Go is already using smartphones to capture its augmented reality use, but Hololens can bring it to the next level.
It’s clearly a long way away, but that doesn’t mean we can’t start dreaming about the possibilities. This demo comes out of the Microsoft Ignite conference that is currently going on. You can check out more information about the conference.
