Enjoy Iron Man 3 in 4D in Japan with moving seats, wind, smells
Japanese cinema chain Korona World has announced that it will be opening Japan’s first full-body, immersive 4D movie theater in Nagoya on April 26. The theater will be equipped with 4DX technology, a system developed in South Korea that adds motion, humidity, aromas, strobes, bubbles and other effects to the standard audio and video experience. The first movie scheduled to be screened in the new theater is the upcoming Iron Man 3. With the 4DX system, you can stimulate all five senses, allowing movie-goers a personal connection with the film. This will be a completely new way of enjoying movies.
In 4DX technology when it comes to the seat movement, the chairs can be programmed to move in tandem with the motion on the screen, and the range of motion may be surprising to movie goers. In addition, there are moving parts positioned under the tush and behind the back to deliver jolts during action scenes, allowing the customer to feel like they are a part of the movie.
A panel in front of the seats has a fan for wind effects, a mister for water, lights for strobe effects and a system that can emit around 1,000 unique scents. There is also special equipment located in the ceiling that can provide a variety of effects, such as raining down bubbles on the audience.
