Pokemon Go is the most mainstream example of AR currently available, introducing a generation of compulsive hoarders and pretend monster enthusiasts to the joys of using a phone as a portal to another dimension.
Developer Niantech is hoping to encourage players to make the most of the technology by inviting them to take amusing pictures and enter them in a competition on Instagram, with the hashtag #pokemongocontest.
The competition has already attracted 13,737 entries at the time of writing. They include a picture of a Magicarp in an oven, a Charmander on a train, and a Pikachu in front of a Christmas tree. So that’s what you’re up against.
If you manage to get selected among the top 10 pictures you’ll win a, “Pokémon GO Prize Pack containing a Pokémon GO Plus, a poster autographed by the Pokémon GO team, and wireless Bluetooth earbuds.”
The competition closes on October 25th, so get snapping. Go here for full details.
