Ingress: A Very Cool Augmented Reality Game

On my list of disruptive technologies, Augmented Reality is one that I believe will transform the world to the same degree as smart phones have already done. It’s hard to believe that right now but the technology will get rapidly better.

What I like about this is it’s a meshing of reality plus an artificial layer over the top of it. The layer can be information, or a game like Ingress.

That game has all sorts of science in it and I can see how it could be extended so you have to learn things as you play. People will learn more when they are enjoying themselves.

Lots of potential for learning in the future.

Here’s a video explaining how to play Ingress. I’ll have to try it out!
