Can you remember a world before the smartphone? Back in 2008, ten years ago, the iPhone was introduced to the world. Since then, everything changed about how we interact with people and how we consume media. Blockchain and Crypto-Currency are just the newest addition to an ever-changing society, the likes of which we haven't seen yet.
Finally! Nintendo made a move into the smartphone market in March 2016. I'm not counting Pokémon Shuffle, which was already released on mobile in August 2015, because it was a "Pokémon-game" and a simple copy-and-paste title released on the 3DS ca. 6 months before. I didn't count it as native to the platform.
Miitomo, in the graphical style of a former game called "Tomodachi Life" for the 3DS, is about conversations with friends. You can connect to your existing Nintendo account or just start with a new one. Once hooked up, the conversation can begin.
Do you remeber the time when SMS was a thing and all the kids were doing it and how it transformed the way we treated emails more like chats and everything became more informal? Then came the smartphone and made us all addicted to it. Seriously, just look around you on the street, in the tram or on the bus. So there is definitely over-stimulation of our senses. Less and less people are actually calling each other on the phone, in fact I observed a trend in sending voice messages instead of calling - using apps like WhatsApp or Snapchat.
