Episode 89 – Augmented Driving

This week, the Michaels focus on how Google’s various properties could all come together for some really cool game play. We also have a surprise at the end of the show! Listen all the way to the end for a surprise.

We discuss the possibilities of what Ingress is really doing as you play. Does the collection of XM change the world? Is there an upcoming cool update to have Ingress and Waze come together? Did you see some cool road-muching during the World Cup? Michael M. tells about the game that was happening in Hungary, while Michael R. did not see any soccer balls to much during the world cup in North Carolina. What is Ingress doing as you play? Michael M. gives a clue based on the amount of battery drainage he is seeing while on a Budapest tram and the amount of data being used. This takes us on a bit of a rant/diversion on data plans.

Jaguar posted a video this week on the Augmented reality, which brings us back to games at work thinking about the overlap between this technology and the cool racing game – Real Racing 3. Is this all bringing us closer to the fully automated driving future? If we get this far, how will security hold up – perhaps the team at the HOPE conference will let us know?

We will have a bit of a break for the next few weeks due to work schedules and travels… However Michael M. commits to providing a show based on interviews with a group of local (Hungary) based game developers.
