Total Immersion Targets Game Developers

Los Angeles-based Total Immersion, the developer of augmented reality technology, is looking to apply its technology to the game development market, the firm said Monday. According to the firm, it is enabling game developers using game tools from Unity Technologies to use its augmented reality platform on both Apple iOS and Windows. The beta release of D-Fusion for Unity is aimed at allowing game developers to allow users to interact with real-world objects, to incorporate them into games. Total Immersion has mostly been using its augmented reality technology for promotional and advertising efforts. As part of the release, the firms are showing off a racing game from Intel Ultrabooks, which allows players to control a F1 racing game using a printed wheel and their face.
