This mind-bending bit of news has quite a few surprises and twists both in its inception, its source, and its content. The first surprise is that Google's own Niantic Labs is actually developing an MMO (massively mutlplayer online) video game. The second surprise is that although this game works like an MMO with millions of users across the globe playing together in real time, it doesn't use a traditional interface. This is a smartphone based augmented reality game. The third surprise is the content of the game will be a paranoid laced, global conspiracy theme that uses real world landmarks as points of reference to help move the story along. (It looks like they found some unique uses for Google Maps.)http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-news/229781-google-beta-new-augmented-reality-smartphone-based-conspiracy-mmo-ingress.html
