Here’s a closer look at Pokemon Go Plus
Pokemon Go isn’t the first Pokemon subject to turn out on cellular devices, but it’s the most unusual — strange enough the fact that to describe the concept of the game, the Company decided to hold a rare press conference in Tokyo. The overall game is produced by Niantic, the former Google internal startup behind GPS-powered AR game Ingress, and the idea is for players to acquire and battle Pokemon by exploring real life.
Up to now, so Ingress, however the weirdest face of the complete affair is Pokemon Go Plus. It’s in essence a Nintendo-built Bluetooth smartwatch-a-like that provides you a occurrence in the Pokemon Go world and never have to positively use your smartphone. So, when a virtual Pikachu is going out in your neighborhood, your watch will buzz and flash to notify you that there surely is a Pokemon prepared to be captured on your commute. Pokemon Go Plus isn’t necessary to participate in Pokemon Go; it’s just designed to make the experience smoother.
A lot of Pokemon Go remains under wraps, but I used to be at least in a position to start to see the Pokemon Go Plus wearable for myself. As you’d expect, we’re nearly interacting with an Apple Watch degree of fit and surface finish here. However the Pokemon Go principle is interesting enough together, and feels as though the perfect fit for Ingress — a great project that hardly ever really resonated with a broad audience. If anything can get people addicted to AR video games, Pokemon can.
