And finally… Pokemon Go Makes You Healthier!

Augmented reality apparently can be good for your health! A study by a group from Stanford University and Microsoft Research showed that the average Pokemon Go player took an extra 192 more steps per day for 30 days after starting to play the game. Users that got very involved took close to 1,500 steps per day – 25% more than before playing the game. “While challenges remain in sustaining engagement of users over the long-term, if Pokemon Go was able to sustain the engagement of its current user base, the game could have a measurable effect on life expectancy, adding an estimated 2,825 million years of additional lifetime to its US users alone,” the report said.
