D-Box - My Obsession is Almost Complete.
Let me simply say that I do not impress easily. It took about twenty years to get it right and its time has finally come.
Ever since the advent of the VHS and Betamax videocassette players (remember those?), moviegoers have been slowly drifting out of movie theaters and into the privacy of their homes. Complex surround sound and even 3-D has certainly added to the enjoyment of the home-theater experience but what's next? Seems like replicating the theater experience at home will always be close behind if you are just a little patient but I think not this time.
The simple red chair that you see here is revolutionizing the movie industry and bringing thrill seekers out of their homes in droves. What better way to enjoy a 3-D movie than with a 4-D chair, which will envelop and move you to the action, which is surrounding you. Can you imagine the speed and the thrill of race-car movies? Can you imagine how your skin will crawl as you are watching a 3-D horror movie sequence and you are suddenly throw into the action? I can. Presently this reality is available in more than 50 theaters across the nation and the number is growing.
I love my larger than life LCD television and my powerful sound system but they will soon not be complete without the chair. There's not much chance to realistically own one of these chairs at home any time soon so if you want the experience you must go to the theater.
Take a look at this three-minute video if you have any doubts that you are seeing the future. After all, why do you think they call them "movies."
All that's left now is an actual review of D-Box at the theater. I'll volunteer to take the risk and see you next week.
To be continued...
Sharing a special part of yourself can only make others happy.
