It seems like the folks over in Japan have really embraced the fun of augmented reality (AR), and the Crimsonfox project just serves to further solidify that belief. Crimsonfox is an AR scavenger hunt game that took place in Tokyo, Japan. Users would use the special AR app (which is only available in the Japanese App Store) on their iPhones to participate in the mass player game in the central district of Shibuya. Over 200 folks showed up to participate in the event, obviously sporting iPhones, and buzzed around the city looking for hints of a secret society called “Moonlights”, which is obviously part of the game (we hope). What do you think people will do with augmented reality next? A video of the action is available after the jump.
