Augmented reality or the fusion of virtual elements with physical ones isn’t anything new. It has been used in helmets of F-35 fighter pilots and some Snapchat filters. However, the game has lessened the gap by superimposing digital Pokémon in a real world.
#2. Already bigger than Tinder
The newly launched Pokémon Go was already installed on 5.16% of Android devices in the US by 8th July, i.e. just in three days of its release. According to an online tracking service Similar Web, the amount of downloads in such a short time has already crossed Tinder’s record.
