D-BOX haptics

D-BOX Technologies, a world leader in immersive motion entertainment experiences, has partnered with Cooler Master Technology Inc. to commercialise an immersive haptic gaming chair.

D-BOX Technologies has announced that it is partnering with Cooler Master in order to design and commercialize a unique gaming chair featuring whole-body haptic feedback technology. The immersive chair will enhance the gaming experience for players of all skills and all types of games. It will be available in 2021 through Cooler Master’s global retail network.

Immersive gaming experience

“This chair will integrate haptic movements and vibrations that will allow gamers to live a complete immersive and realistic experience,” says Sébastien Mailhot, President and CEO of D-BOX.

“With high-fidelity haptics, players can experience more fun, more immersion and a unique competitive advantage, thanks to motion cues delivered to the player straight from in-game telemetry. This makes the D-BOX haptic experience suitable for players of all calibres and for games of all intensities.

“The new gaming chair is a perfect fit with our library of close to 100 video games and growing, including Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, our latest compatible title from Ubisoft and continues to demonstrate our commitment to the gaming industry.

“The gaming and streaming gear market is estimated at over $36 billion by Jon Peddie Research and D-BOX is thrilled to address this market opportunity.”

The future of gaming

“Cooler Master is an emerging player in the gaming chair industry, but we have already made great strides to bring ergonomics, comfort, and style to the gaming chair market,” says Jimmy Sha, CEO of Cooler Master.

“We strive to bring users products that will fundamentally improve their gaming experiences. Haptic technology is undeniably the future of gaming and working with a company respected and experienced in developing haptic technology as well as D-BOX is an obvious choice for us.

“We hope to deliver a gaming chair that will revolutionize the gaming experience and market as soon as Computex 2021.”

D-BOX’s haptic technology brings realism to the gaming world, delivering a heightened experience. It is the only haptic system licensed by the FIA (Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile), enhancing the racing/automotive segment.

The company also recently announced that it is collaborating with Red Raion, the CGI studio specialized in media-based attractions, to offer new immersive experiences.
