Niantic AR Garden event at SXSW featuring Ingress
Niantic have an AR garden at SXSW featuring Ingress. Only mentions NL-1331 Van for it, but would be nice to see some Ingress AR too.
Do you think there will be any AR items/functionality shown for Ingress there, or just a chance to get the NL-1331 Van there?
Maybe as the schedule includes "Debut of NL-1331X AR Experience" and the supporters kit includes "Early access to the NL1331X mobile AR activation"
NL-1331 by AR will appear, but the AR effects of the portal, etc. would be limited to that location even if it were made public.
Because, there is a lot of spam in AR scanned by players. (I remember the recent warning directed at certain game players. And, unfortunately, so do some Ingress agents.)
If we don't finish removing this spam, even if we publish it, it won't interest anyone and will simply slow down smartphones.
Ah yeah, I see this now.
Saturday 12pm - 2pm
Exclusive SXSW Swag Pick up and Debut of NL-1331X AR Experience.
Niantic will also be hosting a larger experience in the same space with many different AR and brand activations to check out.
Doubt it. NIA will advertise anything but Ingress. Look at their twitter, you won't find a mention of any Ingress events.
Is there anything special being shown off at SXSW or any story?
Not from what I can tell for Ingress, besides the NL-1331X AR experience.
There’s a swag pack with an exclusive medal.
Here’s what’s included in the swag (which is now sold out):
