Google goes to war: Ingress

Ingress: Our future is at stake
The war of Ingress is already raging…

A silent war is raging between two groups of people. No-one is positive who is on who’s side, who is an ally, or who is an enemy.

The war exists but cannot be seen. Cities are filled with the weapons and power of war.

What is going on with Ingress?And this war has been created. Not by a power zealous country or state. Not even by a group of terrorists or rebels. No, this war has been created by Google. Created deep within their secret Niantic Labs.

Although this sounds like a bizarre opening to some story I’ve just knocked up, its true. Well, its true in an augmented reality kinda way.

The war, it turns out, looks like a cross between the multi-dimensional concept of Inception with the futurist interface of Tron. Check out the explanation video below…

.. bizarre yet intriguing too.

Some sort of augmented reality game made by Google, how odd.

Looks like it could be good and contain some good suspense though. Unfortunately I feel you’ll look like a complete idiot walking around cities with your phones held high. Actually on second thoughts, you’ll probably just blend in with everyone else.

At least the trailer video thing was well put together.

I’ve applied for an invite but I doubt there’ll be much Ingress action in the bustling heart of Swindon town centre.

Hmmmmm
talking about wandering around the city with your phone in the air – you’ll just look like the tourists (particularly of the Japanese variety) we saw in Frankfurt, who insisted on videoing everything they were seeing through their iPads, wandering around with the pads held high… looking like plonkers..
