“It would be useful to develop computer games based on historical plots so that our children do not look for Pokemon, but learn history with new methods,” Naryshkin said at a meeting with representatives of search and veteran organizations of the Leningrad Region.
In turn, the author of the project “History of Russia in infographics” and “Infographics of the blockade” Peter Koryagin announced the preparation of a new Russian project in St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region “Know your city”.
The project involves the creation of a navigation and tourist application, using which the user will be able to get into different historical periods through his mobile device. The application demonstrates the city’s locations, documentary footage of the chronicle, and will also allow you to walk with famous figures of culture and history of Russia to the sights, plunging into the stories of the guides in augmented reality.

Pokemon Go has brought creators over $ 200 million in a month since its release
The Pokemon Go mobile app grossed over $ 200 million in its first month of release, according to a study by analyst firm Sensor Tower.
Pokemon GO is a free application based on “augmented reality” technology – the 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, parks, beaches, completely absorbed in this process.
At the same time, experts warned that the game could lead to injury or robbery in the real world. Russian banks even offered to insure against injuries during the game. In addition, one of the veterans of the Russian special services did not rule out that the application could be used for espionage. Assistant to the Russian Prime Minister Gennady Onishchenko expressed concern that the game could seriously affect the psyche.
