SciFriday: Using technology to summon demons

It sounds crazy, but a woman in Moscow who went to bed playing Pokemon Go claims she woke up to find a Pokemon in her bed attempting to rape her.

Not surprisingly, her husband and the police think she’s crazy. But in Japan, a growing number of people are convinced that their pets can see the Pokemon showing on their augmented reality video screens.

Considering the time and money government agencies have devoted to developing systems to weaponize the occult, and the recent murder and attempted murder cases against teens convinced that Slenderman and Laughing Jack are real, is this really as crazy as it sounds?
