Aujas, A Global Information Risk Management Company Talks about the Security Risks of Pokemon GO for Organizations
This week in technology has been disruptive to say the least !
Pokémon GO, a location-based augmented reality mobile game has broken all previous records.
The mobile app has become so popular that it has become a social media phenomenon.
So much that it is something that has changed and united the world for once. Now we all have a reason to believe that this game can solve all our problems !
Not the gaming kinds? It is still worth paying attention because it impacts all of us.
Pokémon GO was developed by Niantic and published by The Pokémon Company as part of the Pokémon franchise.
If we had to explain the app in a single sentence – As we can take a guess, augmented reality (AR) is a marriage of real and virtual worlds. In this game – As players travel the real world, the avatar moves along the game’s map. When a player encounters a Pokémon, they can view it in augmented reality mode using the camera and gyroscope on the player’s mobile device to display an image of a Pokémon as though it were in the real world. The rest of it is standard gaming features.
The big deal and hence the addictive part of the game is that you are hunting for these Pokémon characters in your own neighborhood using your phone !
You can’t beat that in either real or virtual life.
