The Pokemon Go craze reminded me of The Tipping Point so I decided to read it again. What is it about Pokemon Go that made it the most successful mobile game ever? What made it spread so quickly?

I spend a lot of time thinking about the future and predicting trends. No matter how quickly technology changes or how automated lives are becoming, people still value a personal connection. They want to feel part of something and with others. That includes the brands they support.
Virtual reality and augmented reality are projected to be a combined $120 billion market by 2020.

Keep an eye on this growing opportunity and let’s discuss how your business can benefit from it.
