D-box has my full attention. Our local theater planted 28 D-box chairs in the middle of cinema #13 at the District 20 plex.
This motion simulator chair is precisely choreographed frame by frame to the action on the screen!
It's actually worth the $8.00 upcharge.
As I watched Inception in the D-box chairs I FELT Mol get off the chair Leo had tied his rope to - I dreaded falling off the snowy mountains -was rocked by explosions. You FEEL every bullit.
The chairs move only a little, but the on-screen action combined with movement feed on each other for an experience far more entertaining than what 3D has to offer. No motion sickness, either.
D-box systems are available for home systems, too. However they are horendously expensive -10 to $40K. I got a platform system I put my couch on. It was used so I was able to afford it. Otherwise - no way ever.
It would be nice if this product came into widespread use so it became affordable for many. Until then it's the big service charge at the cinema IF there's one in your area.
Even though I saw Avatar and Tron at the Imax 3D cinema (and was blown away) I'll still wait a while to jump into 3D at home. Avatar in D-box is amazing and I imagine would be mind boggling in both 3D AND D-box at the same time. Hmmmmmm - maybe I'll get 3D even sooner!
For a wealth of info and before I sprang in, I studied everything at d-box.com. There are deals to be had online, too.
