During CES 2009, I had a chance to try out a D-BOX seat, and I was completely blown away.
The seat moved with the film. Speakers were mounted so the sound was life-like. It was quite an experience, and I wanted one of these at home.
It would appear that D-BOX Technologies is going to have a whole theater full of these seats with the Megaplex 20 in a District in South Jordan.
It will be the first movie theater to equip an auditorium with 28 D-BOX MFX seats. That is about four rows, and that will make them the most coveted seats in the house.
The theater plans on being open just in time for Walk Disney’s summer blockbuster The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Something tells me that it will certainly be quite an experience with these seats.
Personally, this theater is a step in the right direction, and I look forward to a day when every theater has these types of seats. Just think of all the great action that will be in the theaters then. With a little 3D, walking in the theater would be like walking into another world.
Of course, that would probably raise ticket prices, and make it hard to non-action oriented films to be seen in the theater. Yeah, the D-BOX could change the industry as we know it.
