30/03/2021

CEO of Niantic, the Software development company behind the most famous game of the decade Pokemon Go, has teased the first augmented reality glasses on Twitter.

Niantic after creating the first super popular augmented reality game Pokemon Go has been planning to take AR gaming to next level, and it seems like an important milestone.

“Exciting to see the progress we’re making to enable new kinds of devices that leverage our platform,” the CEO tweeted with an image of digital eyewear with the Niantic name in bright orange on the side and what seems like a microphone/speaker grille can also be seen.

The company also announced that they are working on a new AR game Pikmin, in collaboration with Nintendo. The company has also been actively investing in the Augmented reality hardware space, there is also a possibility that they’ve done a branding partnership with a startup on a project as the company also said last year that it had no plans to actually build its own hardware.

Between failed Google glasses years ago and rumoured upcoming apple glasses, the possibilities are endless and it's pretty unclear when to expect any renders or product announcement.
