A motion simulator in every living room! (think that would win me the nomination?)

Mind. Blown.

I need this to live.

Ye gods, I'm old. Zero interest in being tossed around by my own couch.

Not for every movie, but for some? Awesomeness. And POVs would be so much more fun.

I can't even muster enthusiasm for 3D movies. I've seen a couple; meh. Didn't really bring anything to the experience for me. When I want to watch a movie, I want to watch a movie.

Now, most of the movies I watch at home tend to be films like Sunset Boulevard, All About Eve and Duck Soup. Not sure what this device could bring to those classics. :-)

No, old is when you have zero interest in being tossed around ON the couch.

I actually find theater D-BOX seats kind of silly and distracting. But I use a Playseat for racing sims that these things could potentially work well with.

I tried the D-Box test seat with the Force Awakens trailer and wasn't that impressed. It seemed silly to have the chair shake during a lightsabre battle, for example. But a friend of mine saw the full movie with D-Box and really liked it, so I gave it a shot. It was actually pretty fun, but I wouldn't want to experience it that way in my first viewing of a film -- I was always 'aware' when the seat was vibrating, and it felt more like an amusement park ride. Kind of took me out of the moment.

It's not often that I see a movie twice in the theater, so I probably won't do D-Box again... until Episode 8 maybe. I doubt I'd have much use for a home version of the same, but I'm kind of impressed how well Immersit (appears to) work with existing furniture.

Give me sound that blows me away, and bass that shakes the floor over this any day.
