The Unofficial Pokémon GO Tracker's Guide: Finding the Rarest Pokémon and Strangest PokéStops on the Planet

The Unofficial Pokémon GO Tracker’s Guide: Finding the Rarest Pokémon and Strangest PokéStops on the Planet

Pokémon GO took the world by storm this year by providing an AR experience that Pokémon lovers have wanted forever. Accordingly, this past summer Page Two Books asked if I wanted to write a book on the game. Instantly I said yes!

Pokémon GO is all about getting out into the world and exploring it, so I decided to celebrate that part of the game in the book. Throughout The Unofficial Pokémon Go Tracker’s Guide I provide the strangest and best places to play the game. Think about it as a sort of tour book to take your Pokemon GO playing to the next level.

Inside The Unofficial Pokémon Go Tracker’s Guide you’ll find places around the world that will add to your Pokemon GO experience. Thanks to my travels around the world I used my personal experiences to choose the niftiest PokeStops and gyms. You’ll also find stories about how some people have expressed their joy around Pokemon GO in novel ways!

Much more than a player’s guide, The Unofficial Pokémon Go Tracker’s Guide takes you on an epic journey to all the weird and wonderful places Pokémon appear across the planet — from the Pentagon to Iceland’s Westfjords to Frankenstein Castle — and shows how everyday players are taking the world’s greatest, most exciting treasure hunt by storm.

Uncover secrets of the player community in this one-of-a-kind, visually striking guide. Experience infamous and obscure PokéStops first-hand through the eyes (and screens) of real-life Pokémon GO players — just like you! See how players congregate at bustling Central Park to capture a care Vaporeon and kayak to the middle of New Zealand’s breathtaking Oriental Bay to claim an undiscovered PokéGym. Learn about PoGo yarn bombing, moth research, mountain climbing, and other quirky elements of the world’s favorite game.

MeU: Groovy Wearable Tech Designed For Displaying Information

MeU is a different kind of wearable tech than what’s seemingly so trendy right now. The MeU device is an LED screen that is more durable and larger than tiny wearables so it can be used to display a bunch of information to others and not just the person wearing it.

I met with Robert (the creator of the device) earlier this year to discuss how the displays can be used for gaming. I’d love to make a game set downtown with strangers using these screens. It can make ARGs and related gaming styles even more fun!

They launched an IndieGoGo campaign today.

Cool Project: The Etiquette of Sexting

The Etiquette of Sexting from Big Nose Pictures on Vimeo.

The Etiquette of Sexting is an upcoming film about, you guessed it, sexting. Some friends of mine are making this film and they have turned to crowd funding to make their movie happen. I’ve had the chance to participate in a table read of the film and can safely say the movie is quite hilarious.

They only have a few days until their Indiegogo campaign ends so don’t think about it too hard and send some cash their way.

Here’s their elevator pitch:

Following the realization that his longtime girlfriend was sexting another man behind his back, Brent naively embarks on an adventure to learn about sexting from his best friend, Andy while navigating a new romance with an office co-worker, Jenny. But when a scheming colleague frames Brent for a sext he didn’t commit will he have the chutzpah to expose the truth?

Go help them make a sexty film!
