Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

mikemcguff.com blog: Houston-area movie theater gets motion seats: "Santikos Theatres' Silverado 19 in Tomball will get some movie theater seats that move with the film's action:

With its unique, patented technology, <> uses motion codes specifically programmed for each film, TV program or video game, which are sent to a motion generating system integrated within either a platform or a seat. The resulting motion is perfectly synchronised with all onscreen action, creating an unmatched realistic immersive experience."

Or going back even further, it reminds me of the old William Castle movies, especially The Tingler.

"Scream! Scream for your life!"

They don't make 'em like that anymore, sadly.
