Imagine yourself being able to shake, rattle and roll in your seat as you watch the Science Fiction thriller “Super 8” produced by Steven Spielberg. However, you can only do all that when you’re watching the movie in one of the 50 theatres in America that have been outfitted with the D-Box Motion Code seats.
The technology is responsible for the motion effects that will allow you to feel the movements as your chair moves up, down and sideways, depending on the movie scene that you are watching. “The content of this new picture is an ideal match for our incredibly realistic motion effects,” a statement by D-Box Technologies CEO Claude McMaster read.
If you’ve been to the Universal Studios theme park then you might have already experienced the body and mind-boggling fourth dimension added to your viewing pleasure which includes water splashes and air blows. The theatres are fast catching up with the technology and before you know it, theatres the world over would be equipped with seats containing the D-Box technology that will make you shake and rumble just like the characters on the screen.
You will realize the dedication that comes with every movie associated with the D-Box technology when you learn that the engineers have to go through all the scenes and frames in the movie to synchronize the D-Box experience all the way.
But here’s more good news. Even your home theatre can be equipped with the 4D or D-Box technology through the hardware and software solution called “Motion Code” which will be installed under the seats.
But while your home cinema may have cost you only $20,000, the additional 4D technology may be more expensive. But for those who can afford life’s perks and money is not an issue great. For the rest of us, I guess we will have to experience it at 4D at the theatre.
