I would think that this functions similar to Pokémon GO eggs or Wizards Unite Portkeys.
Sorry @PkmnTrainerJ you really do deserve an upvote for finding this, but I can't bring myself to click either 'insightful' or 'like' for a video that tells me nothing at all.
It's nice to see some changes coming up.
Understandable. Doesn’t really say anything about what it is or does.
I'm quite happy they are implementing new stuff in the game, we've waiting for years but I know I'll see many disrespectful comments =.="
It uses recipes to craft vr items you have to walk develop em. Level 6+
Unsure about it yet.
Wish they fix client first or develop low gfx version we can pay for.
As long as we have to pay for each capsule, or pay for each recipe, it'll be a good capability without giving the farm to spoofers who can 'auto-walk' forever.
RGNN has gathered some information on the new Kinetic Capsule. These details were mentioned by Niantic employee Fumi during a Japanese live stream. This is what we know:
🔹 Agents need to be at least Level 6 to use the Kinetic Capsule.
🔹 Agents will need to select one of the four recipes and put items which match the recipe into the Kinetic Capsule.
🔹 Agents need to walk a certain distance. This will spawn Very Rare items inside the Kinetic Capsule according to the recipe used.
What would make this even more useful is having something like adventure sync so I can be gaining km while I’m at work
@NianticBrian It is free or premium item we buy in store?
I feel that they’ll have to enable Adventure Sync before they release this.
I just read it will require six ingredients. Normal items like xmps, cubes, etc
Yeah I guess you could use it to make higher level gear too. Like so many level 5 XMPs will get you one 8 for those who can’t get many.
My best guess is one free, more buyable and some exclusive for subscription.
Likely it will be the same as WU and Pgo portkeys and incubators.
Initially these I expect to be free for the first one, and have a limited number of uses before you have to buy another
3,000 CMU for 5 uses seems reasonable IMO
I do wonder if this means that the devs have incorporated adventure sync?
I am unreasonably excited about the prospect of generating VR LAs and Softbanks.
It would be even cooler if they added recipes to upscale gear e.g. 4 commons -> 1 rare, 4 rares -> 1 VR.
@NianticBrian This feature looks like one of the most requested features to be implemented into Ingress from many years ago.
From those old discussions, is there plans for crafting L9 to L16 Resonators and XMPs? Perhaps as a reward for each number of times one has Recursed?
Any plans for Very Rare Turrets and Very Rare Force Amps?
Will the Kinetic Capsule follow the similar Incubators and Portkeys with every player having one with unlimited uses, and being able to buy more if they wanted?

Is this the media locker? 😂
Rare media crafted from commons?
What a fascinating idea
doubt we will ever be able reproduced VR LA those are rare and impossible to hack daily for a reason...
I feel we can get lots of bots and cheating to get more VR with the Kinectic Capsule. I hope Niantic can do somthing to stop bots for VR items.
Please, no more wishful thinking when we didn't even see the recipes yet.
Lots of agents worry now about bots use the Kinectic Capsule for easy Jarvis and ADA. I get the feedback to @NianticBrian and hope Niantic resolve or minum for bots account.
Flip cards will not be craftable
Stopping cheaters is an ongoing problem, and no one has an effective 100% solution to stop them
Just as a FYI, the media is now dropping from hacks and directing to the video. In case anyone wants to quantum a load of Kinetic media to drop around the place.
Are these Kinetic Capsule hackable from portals???
I believe the recipes are, but the capsules need to be bought, just like eggs/incubator and keys/portkeys works in the other games.
I would think one free reusable one. An extra one if you pay for the subscription and then single use ones you can get with CMU.
