Motion-Activated Theater Seats gives Thrilling Movie Experience
On May 21, moviegoers at the Theatres at Mall of America? in Bloomington, Minn. will feel like they are living the action on the screen as they view the new feature film ?Terminator Salvation? from their own motion-activated seat. Mall of America? will be the first theater in the state and the fourth in the nation to feature this thrilling new dimension in movie viewing.

This breakthrough new D-BOX Motion Code? technology was installed at the Theatres by D-BOX, Mall of America and the Burnsville, Minn.-based company Dsinema, a systems integration division of The Resource Group, Inc.

Moviegoers will encounter gripping explosions and suspenseful fight scenes as each seat moves ?in perfect sync? with the onscreen action; creating an unmatched immersive experience. With its unique, patented technology, D-BOX Motion Code? uses programmed motion effects embedded and specially programmed for each film, which are sent to a motion generating system integrated in a platform or a seat. While audience members will experience motion during action sequences, the seats will remain still during quieter scenes. It also comes equipped with adjustable settings so individuals can customize the experience.

?All of our team members are thrilled to have the opportunity to implement the D-BOX Motion Code? technology at Mall of America,? said Dsinema President/CEO Wayne Dodaro. ?When I was first introduced to the technology, I could just imagine how exciting it would be to feel as though you were a part of the movie.?

For those moviegoers who want to experience the excitement of this new technology in their home theatre systems, Dodaro?s company Eyemersion sells the D-BOX Motion System at its luxury retail electronic store located in the Burnsville Center shopping mall. ?Consumers can come to the store and test out the D-BOX Motion System to see if they like it. If they want to purchase one for their home, we can sell it to them and install it,? said Dodaro. For more information, contact Wayne J. Dodaro at 952-435-4356 ext. 5601 or
