|Keeping Dance Alive 2015 |


#KDA 2015

Keeping Dance Alive… is an exciting programme of outdoor arts & sports events for 2015 that will encourage education and community groups from across Essex to participate in a memorable Dance and Sport event at high profile venues. Keeping Dance Alive is inspired by keeping the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies alive.

Google’s mobile-augmented reality game Ingress just ( well, today-14.07.14) launched for iOS devices.
The title’s story centers around The Enlightened and The Resistance, two factions who compete against each other to unlock clues about a mystical technology. Events in the game progress in real-time as Google delivers new clues each week, while players claim local landmarks in the real-world to earn points for their respective team. One might ask if the thing with the augmented reality goes anywhere, but hey ;)
