Portal Scanning Live

Portal Scanning, which can earn you the Scout (aka “Goodest Boy”) Badge is now live. On the Ingress Community Forum, Ingress Producer Brian Rose explains, “The ability to generate these 3-D point cloud visualizations will help further our augmented reality research of the Portal Network.” It still remains to be seen exactly how this will map over to Ingress or any of Niantic’s other games, but the possibilities are enticing. He also included this example of a 3-D point cloud generated off of portal scans.

Watch this video of me trying out portal scanning for the first time.
