Pokémon Go just redeemed Google Glass’ failure to launch augmented reality

" A silly game is effortlessly doing what Google Glass couldn’t: make AR fun and interesting

Google Glass was supposed to be a device that made augmented reality (AR) into a viable, useful, popular technology. But we all know how that turned out: Instead of inspiring people to see the world in new ways, Google Glass convinced everyone that AR was a useless, awkward, socially invasive technology of interest to only so-called “glass-holes.”

Instead, a silly smartphone game for kids is doing what Google Glass failed so miserably at: making AR fun and involving, if not exactly useful."
