Movie TheatreEdit

Selected movie theatres in USA and Canada are equipped with motion seats. The first movie to support D-BOX motion code was Fast & Furious released on on April 3, 2009.[3]

Home TheatreEdit

A standalone motion controller box or a PC based motion controller (requires a PC) reads information about a movie title directly from the disc or by using "motion code" provided from an active Internet connection and relays motion signals to connected motion-equipped seats. Currently the system supports a library of around 1,000 movies.[4]

Many studios now supports D-BOX technology by adding motion code to select Blu-Ray titles:

GamingEdit

A motion player is connected to a PC through a USB port and is used to send motion signals to connected motion equipment. The motion signals generated are based on information provided by a game or a simulator. Each compatible title must be specifically supported by D-BOX. There are currently 13 titles supported:[11]

The KAI USB motion player is approved for Windows by the Microsoft Windows Hardware Quality Labs.[12]
