It’s not just a virtual reality game. In the real world, pokemon go is good for health, family harmony, cultural discoveries … and small business. The single virtue of pokemon is very famous . Although it is often easier to capture a Bulbizarre than to convince a snob. his simple video game has had more impact in terms of public health than many national health prevention measures. The idea is that Pokémon Go forces the player to walk for miles to hunt or hatch eggs. It’s much more effective than just a step counter for losing calories.
Close volume off
This summer, humanity is divided into two. And those who despise the trick of emphasize that there are much more important issues than hunting Pikachu, what is true. Is it, serious doctor? No, it’s even good for your health. And not only.
Do not confuse essence and appearance.
In a post titled “The symptom of a mentally handicapped society,” Quebec blogger Marc-André Noiseux dresses for winter Pikachu and his friends in three sentences: “I watched these completely hysterical people on television, blocking a street for look for a Pokémon … “And further:” Our technologies are making us zombies, making us mentally disabled. You look stupid looking for a Pokémon.
Besides, playing it makes you stupid.
We will be more and more stupid in the future when we will only be interested in games with con.
everywhere and multi-card activists from all facebook in causes.
But sorry. You shouldn’t confuse essence with appearance. Mocking players because they seem ridiculous according to the criteria of “norms” (yes, that’s what we call “normal people”) is as incongruous as mocking a person who seems to speak alone in the street when ‘she mottoes with a smart phone. The “thinker” who condemns a game without having tested it is a bit like the fundamentalist who jokes a film without having seen it. Finally, before predicting a future worthy of Idiocracy, let’s not forget that Pokémon does not only seduce mentally retarded people.
Augmented reality is a return to the real world
This is a paradox that deserves to be dissected by a philosopher doctoral student. Pokémon GO is somewhat the opposite of Oculus Rift. In this latest (and stunning) technology, we are locked in a helmet that incarcerates our senses to project us into a virtual world. However, the virtual, at Pokémon GO, exists only on the Smartphone and the game takes place IRL (in real life). Of course, we can always imagine glasses or helmets that would superimpose augmented reality on the vision of the real world, but the game would be so intrusive that it would become inapplicable.
