Playing Pokémon Go on your phone is fun and frustrating at the same time

"...It's half-baked AR, but it's the best we've got" - Oh but is it Verge...Is it? Rush Digital may have something to say about that: http://www.rushdigital.nz/produce/meatpack

After spending a few days with the beta version of developer Niantic's new mobile game, I can safely say the title mostly makes good on this promise. What’s holding it back, however, is the technology. For those who were expecting something even remotely as fully-featured as Google’s 2014 April Fools’ joke, you will be disappointed. AR software, coupled with the limitations of current phone hardware, can’t fully map out the environment or understand objects in physical space, not yet. It sounds silly to have expected such a mind-blowing experience in the first place, but it’s important to temper your expectations.
