Big news out of the CEDIA Awards down in Atlanta–the D-Box GPH-120 just took home a big win as their EXCITE award winner for the home theatre division.
Just in case you’re not familiar with a D-Box GPH-120, they’re motion controllers. They’ve actually been installed in some movie theatres, like those inside the Mall of America, and are available for home purchase at various home theatre stores throughout the country.
What these things do is they essentially provide movement for your home theatre chair in tune with the action on the screen. If you’re watching Top Gun, and Maverick jinks right to dodge a Soviet MiG, you’ll jink right too. Rather, your chair will. This is actually a pretty sweet development in gadget tech, and the EXCITE award probably went to the right guys.
