We have disasters in the real world, extreme weather events, accidents, emergencies and terrorism. Could AR games and the platforms they run on have an emergency or survivor assist mode. Say there is a tornado headed your way and you're playing an AR game or using an AR app, you are probably not paying full attention to the real world. And the app could with an emergency or threat detection mode alert you to problems and even provide you with directions on how best to avoid them. In a way it would be like adding a gridlock avoidance feature to a car's satnav system. This is of course is above and beyond what the AR game/app developers could produce themselves but the platform providers like Google, Microsoft and Amazon could provide these features to their AR platforms. So should AR platforms help save people when disaster strikes?
