Pokemon GO has taken the world by storm since it launched just a couple short weeks ago. While many were excited for the game, nobody could predict how big it would become. Pokemon GO is a surprisingly yet addictive app, with augmented reality (AR) helping to bring childhood dreams alive for many.

The HoloLens is currently in development and it promises a revolutionary AR experience. With true, widespread VR looking more and more like a distant reality, AR may be just what gaming needs. Can Microsoft take advantage of Pokemon GO’s success?
