You surely heard about the hype of Pokémon GO, the mobile game that actually mobilizes the players to catch and train Pokémons. The gameplay and the mechanics rely heavily on augmented reality and making use of the GPS and gyroscopic sensors of the smartphone in order to provide an immersion for the player. At the end of July Nintendo plans to ship the Pokémon GO Plus accessory, for around $35,  in order to simplify the gameplay further. Using the small gadget you will be able to catch Pokémon without looking at your smartphone the whole time.
