John Hanke, boss of Pokémon Go developer Niantic, has issued a tease showing a pair of Google Glass-style spectacles.

The glasses have been customised with the Niantic logo, while Hanke’s Twitter post states that the specs are being made to interact with games on Niantic’s AR platform.

For now, we can but speculate at the tech inside – though this isn’t the first we’ve heard of Niantic testing its games on headset devices.

Last month, Microsoft showed a Pokémon Go tech demo for HoloLens where Hanke interacted with the game’s virtual creatures using the mixed-reality headset.

That tech demo was branded “proof-of-concept” and “not for consumer use”, but seemed to let you play with Pokémon in a similar manner to Pokémon Go’s current buddy system.

Like HoloLens, Niantic’s transparent Glass-style spectacles would presumably let you view creatures directly overlaid on your environment.

Elsewhere, Niantic recently announced a partnership with Nintendo to work on other new AR experiences – the first of which will be a Pikmin app.
