Augmented Reality – wait, what? (Or, Pokémon GONE.)
July 6th, 2016 Pokémon Go launches and no one knows what’s about to happen. Weeks later people are swarming over fences, into fields, and across cities trying to catch ‘em all. The game heralds the public introduction of augmented reality and what it can do. The promise of AR seems endless and exciting. It’s almost a year later, Pokémon Go is still around but it’s lost the luster it had. Augmented Reality isn’t discussed the same way it was before. What happened to the promise of AR? Let’s look at what we thought AR was going to be, and where it’s gone since that fateful weekend in July.
Over the last twenty years Boon has had job titles like site producer, content specialist, information architect, interaction designer, user researcher, stage manager, and voice-over actor. Between bouts of title whiplash he’s helped build some very big things, some very small things and learned a lot along the way. He’s a lover of new cocktails and old records. He can be found on twitter at @boonerang and he’d love to swap stories over a beverage.
