Today Niantic demonstrated "Niantic Real World Platform" - an Augmented Reality platform that's mightily impressive. This is a little bit different than what's offered by Apple with ARKit, and it's not exactly like what Google has with ARCore. Instead, it's got Pokemon. Instead, it's more focused on the sorts of situations presented in Pokemon GO - since that's where their work began. What they've got this week is a demonstration that'll make you smile.
