Pokemon GO is not just virtual thanks to Ilfracombe man – 3D Printing Industry

by • July 18, 2016 • No Comments

By now, anyone with internet access is really much aware of the Pokemon GO craze which is may already sweeping the world. Having may already sent shockwaves of Sydney to New York, the virtual gaming app finally created its way to the UK last week. In celebration, 3DPI rounded up a few 3D printed Pokémon goodies which may satisfy any real trainer.
In the same vein, a local man in Ilfracombe, Devon, UK thought players looking for virtual Pokémon deserved physical rewards after all their complex training. After the talked about app’s servers crashed once again, Matthew Beaman decided to 3D print a few characters of his own to pass the time. Eventually inspired by Pokémon GO’s competence to engender widespread interaction and physical activity, Beaman decided to hide his designs at local Pokéstops for app users to find and physically collect.
Beaman cleverly sent local players on a treacertain hunt around the community by posting photos of the printed Pokémon in different types of locations on a Facebook group. “I understand really a few individuals who are going out and looking for them. I’ve had individuals shouting thank you at me in the street,” said Beaman in an interview with his local paper. With his creative thought, Beaman has managed to take the interactivity of Pokémon GO actually additional, creating an actually deeper sense of community and accomplishment for users.
Beaman does not plan on bringing his thought outside of Ilfracombe, but maybe users who find souvenirs can pass them along in their travels in a pay-it-forward type of scenario. It can be amazing to see what other new thoughts come out of this ground breaking game! Be certain to sign up for the 3D Printing Industry newsletter for all the latest updates in the field!
