Developer Unveils Pokemon Go Demo For Microsoft HoloLens
A development studio in Amsterdam has built a pretty awesome demo of the very popular augmented reality (AR) Pokemon Go game.
According to Hot Hardware, Capitola VR, a division of Capitola Digital development studio has the goal to create virtual reality (VR) experiences for a wide variety of purposes. The Capitola VR division employs a team of 20 designers and developers who work on various VR projects. Given the immense popularity of the Pokemon Go's mobile game, Capitola VR has been drawn to develop a demo version for the game that is playable on Hololens.
Like the mobile version, Pokemon characters appear within the Pokemon Go demo for Hololens, only they are seen in your living room, home office, or other real life locations, instead of spotting them in a GPS generated map of your surroundings. Of course, in order to play the Hololens version of the Pokemon Go game users should be wearing Microsoft's headset.
According to UploadVR, the Head of Digital at CapitolaVR, David Robustelli, explained that the demo has been built with the Hololens SDK in Unity. He added that their team has been amazed how easy it is to launch an app on Hololens.
The demo provides an exciting immersive experience. Randomly generated Pokemon appear in the user's surroundings. In order to catch them, the players make a pinching gesture with their fingers and then a Poke ball flings at the character.
According to PCMag, Capitola VR developing studio has no plans to work with Niantic to port Pokemon Go over to Hololens anytime soon. But some kind of Pokemon Go experience could be a great fit once Microsoft's augmented reality platform starts to take off.
Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently told CNBC that he hopes all this Pokemon interest will also bring "a lot of interest in Holo Lens." What is interesting here is that the VR and AR technologies have arrived and the future of gaming looks exciting.
