Has anyone seen the trailer? It looks amazing! What's your opinions on it?

Hmm... I'd think that in order to do something like that, there would need to either be holographic projectors all over the place, or the participants would need to where special glasses.

It makes me wonder what the actual product will be like.

This seems like it's going to be a Pokémon MMOARG.  With the possible exception of seeing Pokémon integrated with the real world through the camera of a smartphone (which would be cool, but would almost certainly entail a huge development cost, especially given that most smartphones have only one external camera rather than two), I don't think we're going to literally see Pokémon in the real world with today's level of technology, though I would expect an experience that's relatively analogous to that of the Ingress ARG.

 It seems very cool, nonetheless.

Well as far as I'm aware. The Actual App is Free and us available for both ios and Android users. But the actual portable wearable device thing isn't free. Also there isn't any confirmed dates but it's estimated for late 2016.
