Create strong emotions through movement while reducing motion sickness
One of the ways haptic technology efficiently immerses users into the ride or attraction is by stirring up strong emotions within them through movement. This is done through ultra-precise and realistic haptic feedback capable of connecting the mind, body and soul to the content being displayed, allowing users to forget that they’re experiencing a simulation or virtual reality situation!
While many feel that rides and attractions with movement make them nauseous, this is not the case for rides outfitted with a D-BOX haptic system. As a matter of fact, our haptics have the opposite effect—several studies, including one conducted by Montreal-based research lab Tech3lab, have shown that the true sense of immersion created when stimulating the senses and making the experience more emotional & realistic actually reduces the feeling of motion sickness, putting users in a fully receptive state in which they can enjoy the attraction for all its worth.
Generates an interactive & thrilling level of storytelling
Not only does haptic feedback completely immerse users into the ride, but it truly brings the story of the ride to life! Moving beyond sight and sound, the D-BOX haptic system transforms any attraction into an interactive and immersive experience that allows users to interact with the characters and animations in a way never before thought possible.
With high-fidelity haptic feedback, it’s possible for your attraction’s characters to physically touch your riders. If they reach out to shake the user, for example, the users will truly feel this interaction throughout their entire body! This adds an added layer to the ride’s storytelling ability as users no longer have to rely on what they’re seeing and hearing to understand what’s going on—important aspects of the story can be communicated through the user’s sense of touch. This electrifying layer of realism stimulates users and makes them feel as though they are truly part of the action!
Amaze and captivate your users
The immersive experience created by D-BOX is one that goes so above and beyond user expectations that it captivates crowds and keeps them coming back to ride again. With so many subtle details being communicated through the haptic feedback, this one-of-a-kind immersive layer allows users to ride the attraction over and over again.
This high throughput and significant replay value are fun not only for riders, but also for the attraction owners—the attraction is sure to meet overall business objectives and to provide a large return on investment, especially if each seat is monetized.
