Google has been experimenting with augmented reality for a few years now, but never in such an ambitious way as its announcing today… sort of. For April Fools Day this year, Google has created a video advertising an augmented reality Pokémon game loosely tied into Google Maps. In Googles vision, players would hold their smartphones out in front of them and see Nintendos cartoon creatures appear on screen before them, often ready to do battle. But Google does give us an opportunity to start catching Pokémon on Google Maps: if you zoom into certain areas around the world on Google Maps iOS and Android apps today, youll actually see some of Nintendos famous creatures appear.
