Her grandparents were great storytellers, too. “They were always sharing these amazing stories from their lives, which seemed like foreign lands to me because they were so different,” Thomas says. The company has acquired a small startup company called Escher Reality who specialise in AR for mobile devices .In a statement, Niantic CEO John Hanke said: “The addition of the Escher AR technology is incredibly exciting to us at Niantic as it significantly accelerates our work on persistent, shared AR as part of the Niantic real world application platform,”At Niantic, we are committed to using technology to enhance our users’ interactions with the physical world, and we are excited to embrace the Escher team as we continue to evolve and grow our platform to support planet scale AR.”Whether this leads to improved multiplayer functionality, a smoother running app or a completely reshaped game remains to be seen. But with Escher work being incorporated into Niantic vision for Pokemon Go future, it clear the mobile phenomenon is set for big things.TechnologyallMost ReadMost RecentGoogleAndroid users should delete these 11 dangerous apps now, experts warnResearchers from Check Point have warned about 11 apps that can infect your smartphone with dangerous malwareTinder hack lets you see who has liked you without paying for upgradeTinderIf you’ve ever missed a potential Tinder match, there’s a sneaky way you can go back and take a look for freeSex robot VIRGINITY for sale at creepy new brothel but it isn’t cheapSex robotsBrothel claims to be focused on robot rightsRelationships with SEX ROBOTS ‘will be widespread by 2050’, expert claimsSex robotsOne expert predicts that in just over 30 years, sex robots could become so popular that they could replace relationships altogetherBest budget laptops for July 2020 and they’re all under 500Mirror BestIf you’re looking to upgrade your laptop and want premium features without paying a premium price, these are the best laptops you can buy right now for under 500Elon MuskElon Musk, Kanye West, Apple and Bill Gates hacked by crypto scammers on TwitterKanye West, Uber and Apple were also high profile targets of an apparent hacking scam that saw billionaires and politicians promise to double people’s crypto currencyNintendo Super Mario Bros.
