Pokémon Go has turned into a worldwide phenomenon after just a few months after being released, sending millions of gamers out onto city streets and other places with their phones just to play the game.
That said, the game could be a bit more exciting and interactive if the boss of the company that created the Pokémon Go has his way.
Chief Executive of Niantic Labs, John Hanke, wants to develop contact lenses to make the game even more realistic that it is now.
The photo preview of this post is called a “Smart Contact Lens”. It would project augmented reality images on to the real world so that players can “see” actual Pokémon characters without holding their smart phones.
It may somehow end the sight of thousands of players wandering through public places, with phones held, as they try and capture the cartoon-like pocket monsters.
This would mean that the game would be so much realistic that you can see gyms and Pokéstops as if they were in the real world.
Hanke also said that it would be a huge thing for them because it will help them achieve what they really intended to do… to encourage players to explore the world around them.
Mr Hanke said: ‘I’m a science-fiction fan so I want the contact lenses that transform everything into whatever kind of themed world I want it to be.
‘I think a lot of people see that archetype as something that we’d like to have and it’s probably going to get created within our lifetime and I’m very much looking forward to it.’
