Here comes Google Ingress, the fusion of the virtual game with the real world


A few days ago Google launched Ingressthe augmented reality game, through which the player interacts with the surrounding physical world.

Practically virtual and reality mergecreating a new dimension just like that of the futuristic films we have seen on television.

Ingress in fact, through a geolocation systemit will “find you”, it will follow the roads that you will travel, in a sort of overlap between the video game and your real life.

You will follow roads and different points in the cities you are in, which will be broadcast via the GPS to your Android device.

You can choose who to stay with, if with Illuminati or fight in the Resistence.

An augmented reality application that Google is already experimenting with.

Access to Ingress is, for now, only by invitationas the program is still in beta phase.

This is the first fusion experiment between real and virtual world.

You have to move around the city and experience the adventure created by Google. and choose which side to stand, as anticipated: with the “Illuminati” or with the Resistance, and your task will be to to protect territories and to conquer new ones.

The plot of the game is based on the discovery of a “alien matter”Which is capable of providing a new form of energy: the Illuminati must understand how to exploit it, the Resistance instead wants to leave things as they always have been.

The player will go around the royal city with the task of accumulating alien matter and conquering as many territories as possible.

Let’s say a modern and futuristic reinterpretation of Risiko.

For now it is planned to play with one smartphonebut in the future it will be played with Android glasses, living in another world that will overlap the real one: and this is only the beginning.

What about gamers, the future has already arrived.
