The newly popular video game format, augmented reality video games (ARG), offers both unique risks and benefits to child safety. ARGs are different from typical video games in that they combine live views of the real world with the computer generated video game into one interface. An augmented reality game called Pokémon GO is now the most popular mobile game in United States history, especially among children and adolescents. Within a week after its release, Pokémon GO amassed 21 million daily active users, or about 6% of the US population. Despite its popularity, relatively little information has yet been provided to pediatricians and parents about the dangers and potential benefits that Pokémon GO and other ARGs can offer to children.
