MIDWAY, FL - For Tech Smart, WTXL's Christine Souders talked with Blake Dowling with Aegis Business Technologies about Pokémon Go.

The app is taking the world by storm when it comes to augmented reality and virtual reality.

So what's next with this gaming app?

Dowling broke down the pros and cons.

Cons include lures that can be purchased by criminals to take you to a unsafe location.

Pros include getting gamers out of the house to explore the world in a new way.

Dowling says Pokémon Go is opening the doors to augmented reality and this app is just the beginning for what's on the horizon in the gaming world, and in other places including how construction projects are drawn up or testing out makeup without ever applying it to your face.
