Augmented reality is also likely to give a big boost to Chameleon Street Chat, a social network platform that lets users interact in real world locations.
While Pokémon Go uses a mobile phone’s camera, Chameleon Street Chat integrates with Google Street View, so encounters can happen almost anywhere in the world.
To start a chat, they select a location and pin it. The spot is communicated to their friends and soon other avatars will appear. Users can select familiar locations, like a hometown park, or some place exotic and new, like a mountain road in Hawaii.
The platform includes mobile apps for iOS and Android devices.
