Microsoft today announced the launch of the “Microsoft Mesh” cloud services platform for integration and interactive virtual reality needs. In Ignite 2021, it also announced a simple demonstration of launching “Pokemon GO” on HoloLens 2 devices. Niantic is currently working with Microsoft to establish a concept demo and “Pokemon GO”, and is using a demo to enable the game to be introduced in the future.
This demo video shows how HoloLens users discover Pokemon in the wild and feed Pokemon berries before interacting with another player. HoloLens can enter various “Pokemon GO” links through the menu, but Niantic also emphasized that this is not a dedicated application and is not ready for consumers.
Niantic CEO John Hanke said that while this demonstration video is not for consumer use, it can still give everyone a preliminary understanding of future software and hardware development. Although it only touches the surface of the problem, Niantic also realizes that important milestones will wait to be achieved in the next few years, and these achievements will become the starting point on the life-changing journey of AR technology.
