SAN FRANCISCO — Total Immersion (www.t-immersion.com), a developer of Augmented Reality (AR) technology, launched a beta version of D'Fusion for Unity at GDC 2012. The tool enables developers working with Unity Technologies' game tool access to its AR technology. D'Fusion for Unity will be available for iOS and Windows, affording developers the opportunity to deploy immersive AR gameplay experiences on their platform of choice.
Total Immersion is showing off D'Fusion's gameplay capabilities at Intel's GDC 2012 booth with a demo of an AR Formula 1 game.
