Motion effects added to 'Tron: Legacy' and 'Green Hornet' for 4D feel
Wednesday 08 December 2010
From the rumble of explosions to the careening of a car chase, special theater seats equipped with motion simulation will be available in select US theaters to intensify the effects of films including
Tron: Legacy, releasing on December 17, and
The Green Hornet, opening January 14.
Recent titles embedded with the technology include Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, Resident Evil, Despicable Me and Inception.
Motion effects technology creates a real-time experience with the physical effects of a film's action synchronized with the screen. It can further enhance 3D.
D-Box, a Canadian company, has installed motion effects seats in 41 movie theaters in California, Texas and Japan. Over the coming year, ten cinemas in the Netherlands will be equipped with 250 seats. In addition, there is a backlog of 248 more systems to come around the world.
Chairs are also available for home theaters - for both films and video games - and casinos. Approximately 900 titles are available with motion effects technology for Blu-ray videos and videogames.
