  • Recently, local game companies have been increasingly producing PC-based game that were popular with users among the existing commercialized games into mobile games through remakes. In this paper, we studied how console-based game influenced mobile augmented reality game . Through this process, we extracted five characteristics of mobile augmented reality, then interpreted and classified the meaning of this. Based on released in 2016, the scope of research is limited to console and mobile games previously released. According to the analysis, showed 50 characteristics and borrowed 78% from its existing Pokemon, 22% from its new production, and contained 24% reality. We also found that the Pokemon game series , and the exotic series had much influence on production. Based on this research data, we hope that augmented reality games for mobile will be made more active using existing game contents. It is also hope that such activities will lead to the growth of the home and abroad game industry.

  • Interest in Augmented Reality (AR) game $Pok{\acute{e}}mon$ GO is getting heightened. However, based on its characteristic, various direct and indirect problems are highlighted, thus increasing concerns. Although the game is not formally released domestically, there are limits in national game classification to apply on such outdoor Augmented Reality game. This paper will examine the problematic cases regarding Pokemon GO and analyze internal and external game classification system to discuss safe gaming measures for domestic users. In result of examining cases, need for adding 'physical danger' in current game classification system for user's safety was shown. As the government's game regulation is being eased, appearance of a variety of games using Augmented Reality technology in near future is predicable. Therefore it is important to prepare improvement of game classification system as a pre-safety measure, and it is expected to bring positive effect on game usage and industrial growth through safe game usage.

  • Development of AR/VR has expanded computer games from indoor static contents to outdoor dynamic contents. The syndrome of 'Pokemon Go' which is a representative AR game was born, and Nintendo's stock price shot up a massive 120%. Although some people gained profits, new damages are emerging including illegal intrusion or road accidents because it is a type of game to visit real locations. There are reported about 114 thousand road accidents related to the game. This study aims to examine the trends of AR game in 2016 and analyze damages and positive cases to suggest a method for preventing accidents due to the AR game, and a business model.

  • Recently, many ICT companies are trying to expand the ecosystem of VR (Virtual Reality) and AR (Augmented Reality). They are developing a variety of industries such as entertainment, education, e-commerce and so on. There is also contains the power, energy field. And application related with VR/AR will increase in power industry. Thus, Platform is necessary because there are problems such as re-use, interface with legacy system and security. We can expect the convenience and efficiency by developing VR/AR power platform. In this paper, we will discuss the trends of VR/AR technologies, possibilities of VR/AR in energy field, essential elements of VR/AR power platform. In the future, we expect to lead standards of VR/AR in energy and to develop a killer application such as Pokemon GO.

  • 'Pokemon Go',which is game program, provides a clue to solve the problem of healthcare in the sense of leading changes in behavior of the users. 'Pokemon Go'is a spin-off of the $Pok{\acute{e}}mon$ game series and uses Augmented Reality(AR) technology. AR, which can be said to complement the real world, has been used in many fields such as medical applications, broadcasting, manufacturing, the mobile sector as a wide range of technologies. In particular, the medical field as area of the active application from the start of AR, provides a great help in medical fields, that is accurate medical diagnosis and prevention of unnecessary dissection by synthesizing the patient information and the image of actual patient on three-dimensional data of the sensor such as MRI or ultrasonic wave. In this study, we analyze the VR technology trends, application examples, and the future of VR and AR based medical services in healthcare.

  • Many users enjoy a location-based augmented reality game such as Pokémon GO. From the perspective of attachment, this paper investigated the antecedents of Pokémon GO use. A total of 182 responses from Pokemon Go users was collected through an online survey. The result of regression analysis showed that attitude toward game characters, social interaction, competition, and physical activity increased attachment to game. Attention switching, however, decreased attachment to the game. This study suggested that attachment to mobile augmented games could be achieved through social interaction, competition, and physical activity. Implications for researchers and practitioners were discussed.

  • $Pok{\acute{e}}mon$ Go is an augmented reality (AR) game developed jointly by Niantic and Nintendo. It's a new type of augmented reality role-playing game (RPG) where AR elements like location information, visual recognition technology and GPS navigation technology are integrated with the intellectual property of the popular $Pok{\acute{e}}mon$ anime. The global success of $Pok{\acute{e}}mon$ Go can be attributed to the innovative incorporation of AR technologies into the game but also to the utilization of the Pokemon story which had been developed for 20 years. In summary, Pokemon Go is the fruitful result of a successful storytelling that combines the humanistic imagination of a popular, cultural archetype and the engineering imagination of AR game technologies.

  • This study is about Augmented Reality Game (AR Game) applied to Pokemon Go, which has recently been a sensational game. We focused on and analyzed the intention for continuous use as a dependent variable. We made hypotheses through previous studies and used spatial presence, perceived interactivity, perceived pleasure, and sickness as independent variables. Immersion was set up as a mediating variable. We conducted the study using 198 data, which people who experienced AR games responded. The results were as follows. First, spatial presence and perceived pleasure were found to have a significant effect on immersion, as in previous studies. Second, the relationship between sickness and immersion, which were shown to have a negative relationship in previous studies, we found that variables had a positive relationship unlike previous studies and rejected the hypothesis. Third, perceived interactivity, which is one of the crucial variables to affect the intention for continuous use, we found not to have a significant relationship among perceived interactivity, immersion, and the intention for continuous use. This result is opposite from previous studies, and further research on this issue is expected. We conducted this study with an individual user's view on immersion and the intention for continuous use rather than focusing on technical or political topics. Besides, this study has a significance that drew different results from previous studies and explored people who relish AR games with the characteristics of personal variables.
