I know there are a million posts about #ingress  that said this is the best description I have seen about what it is all about….

All Photographers here should be Portal Makers or somehow involved in what others find.. as we know where all the cool secret places are… Or as +Brian Rose voiced on another thread – Photowalks might be truly much more interesting now….

I am all for anything that gets us all out more exploring the world…

And I still want invite …. even though it is full pier pressure induced at this point… it just look cool… I am all for my phone giving me secret missions….just hopefully not self destructing afterward…

Ingress – Game guide and secrets

About #Ingress .
Ingress is an Augmented Reality Game (ARG) where you have to go to certain locations and hack portals. There are two factions in this game, the Enlightened and the Resistance. The story behind the game is that a +CERN scientific experiment created a cascade that released exotic matter (XM) around the world and portals have been formed in locations like statues,  museums and other public spaces. Both factions are trying to capture these portals and set up resonators to generate more energy. When three portals are linked together, a field will be created to protect the area between those portals from "Shapers".

Join the Enlightenment
Faction attempting to help the Shapers infiltrate Earth. Followers believe that the Shapers bring a powerful enlightenment that will lift humankind.

Join the Resistance
Faction defending the Earth from the Shaper ingression. They are seen by some as being fearful of change or progress, but the Resistance is firm in its belief that it is protecting humanity.

How to play
► Find portals nearby on this map (login required): http://goo.gl/0uE4z
► Head to the located portal
► Once reached and within 50m of the portal, start hacking
► Hacking will give you items like keys, resonators, XMPs and more
► Deploy up to 8 resonators, add mods or link portals
► Move to the next portal and repeat

Create more portals
There is a way to create your own portals. 
► Turn on GPS on the camera app
► Take a picture with your camera app
► use the share option and share it with the NIA Super OP
► It will now send an email to the NIA Super OPs to review the picture.

If your picture meets the general criteria for portals it will be added to the game within 2-3 weeks. http://goo.gl/xSpm3
