  • SkinvadersThe new iOS AR game SkinVaders is out. It is Free, awesome and addictive.  The game uses facial recognition software and the iPad or iPhone‘s front camera to place digital aliens all over the users’ face. The main idea of the game is to squish alien bugs that lay eggs all over your face. Nasty game, but cool technology.

But behind a great game there is always an amazing developers with a powerful techlonogy. The game was created by Total Immersion, a studio that has been working on augmented reality (AR) games for some time. The game was made using D’Fusion Studio, which is an AR software designed for the cross-platform development of augmented reality games, from iOS to Android to the Kinect. And the best part of this software is that it is free.

Here you can check the trailer of the game.

According to Total Immersion (press release), the SDK will work as following:

 D’Fusion Studio offers the most advanced feature set on the market-free of charge:

  • Multiplatform: Developers can create games and applications for a variety of Platforms including iOS and Android™, Web, Microsoft® Kinect™ and kiosk.
  • Sophisticated: Superior markerless tracking-including face-tracking-quickly recognizes images as targets as they move through the scene and even rotate.
  • Efficient: D’Fusion Studio draws from a single authoring environment and a single set of assets (images, 3D models, scripts) to maximize efficiency.
  • Comprehensive: D’Fusion Studio boasts the unique ability to recognize an image from a target data store of up to 1,000 images (competitive solutions do not exceed a target data store of 30) – while maintaining the same recognition time, requiring only a slight increase in resource utilization (CPU, RAM).
  • Immersive: D’Fusion Studio’s AR technology successfully blurs the lines between the real world and the rich digital universe of 3D allowing end users to deeply engage in the real-time experience without distraction caused by the technology.

Also, Total Immersion CEO Bruno Uzzan said:

D’Fusion Studio uses superior AR technology to get as close as possible to erasing the line between reality and the digital world.

Now, by making D’Fusion Studio free to all developers we’ve removed yet another barrier-developers are limited only by their imagination.

So, with this in mind, we can expect to see more awesome AR games coming to our iPads very soon.
