Pokemon GO is a free application based on “augmented reality” technology: digital and real worlds are connected, as the picture displayed on the smartphone screen is projected onto the location of the real world. One of the main goals of the game – to catch a Pokemon (Pocket Monster – “pocket monster”) – forced many people to take to the streets, completely absorbed in this process.
