The seats (pictured above) are designed to work in tandem with D-BOX Motion Code-enabled movies such as the upcoming Universal release Fast & Furious. Yes, Vin Diesel is back in the 4th installment of the popular high-speed car chase movies.
The technology gives movie studios the ability to synchronize the audience seats on a frame-by-frame basis with the action on-screen. The seats are capable of reproducing pitch, roll, heave and what D-BOX calls "Intelligent Vibrations".
The “Fast & Furious” D-BOX motion experience will be available at the Mann Chinese 6 theatre in Hollywood, and if the experiment is successful, I'm sure we'll see this new technology get rolled out to many more theatres in the near future.
With the movie industry struggling to keep box office revenues strong in the face of an ever-improving home theatre experience, D-BOX's motion seating might just be the ticket.
