Would you like to go to a 4d Movie? With recent innovations resulting in Smartphones, Smart TVs and even Smart cars, it only makes sense that we start to have Smart 4d cinema experiences. Now for some heave downloaders this is Holly woods idea to get us away from our desktop computers and whatsapp messenger. they are now going to offer 4D movies.
When the 3D technology was first released, it created more than a buzz in the theatre world, it creates major waves. The fact that you could view your favourite movies in 3D and see everything in a life-like dimension was what had everybody gasping. The way it seemed the characters in the movie were speeding towards you whenever they were in flight or engaged in battle was just so innovative and exciting, no one could get enough of them. Even best is the fact that all of these could be experienced simply by putting on a pair of 3D glasses. Nowadays, you don’t even need to get to the cinemas to have the 3D experience. With the technology being included in the latest TV sets, you can have the ‘whoooo’ and ‘aaaahhhh’ effect from the comfort of your home.
It will not be so easy to have the same experience at home with the latest innovation in theatres. 4D is the latest form of entertainment presentation that combines the 3D effects with physical effects from the movie you are viewing. It includes enabling you to feel the different sensations from the movie including smells, mists and so on. It is important to know that even though 3D movies are geometrically three-dimensional, 4D movies are not geometrically four dimensional.
When the 4D theatre revolution first began, it was only shown at certain venues. Theme and amusement parks did shows of about fifteen minutes to half an hour, giving their customers the amazing 4D experience.
Installation of the 4D necessities is a very expensive mission to undertake so it is no wonder that the experience is not as ubiquitous as the 3D theatre experience. The 4D technology requires the use of special seats that are able to vibrate and even move during certain scenes in a film as well as the use of water sprays during some scenes. In other words, the 4D experience combines geometrically three-dimension images with very interesting physical movements. You will find your chair swaying in different directions during a windy scene and will experience the wind blowing. When I viewed a short film at a theme park recently, I felt my chair tilt forward as one of the characters in the movie jumped into a lake and I even saw the water splash like I was actually in a lake.
The 4D experience is one that you will not want to miss out one. It not only gives you a complete life-like view of the movie, it makes you feel like you are part of the movie. It is suffice to say that at the end of a two-hour action movie you will be exhausted because you will feel like you were right there on the scene experiencing every vibration and sensation. Absolutely amazing if you ask me.
Some countries have embarked on the mission of installing the necessary 4D seats at their theatres, some of which include South Korea and the United States of America (trust those guys to be on top of every technological innovation). For those in the United Kingdom, 4D films are shown at the London eye and at Madame Tussauds. It has been revealed that the avatar movie which was one of the first movie that made the 3D technology famous has been reproduced in 4D for and even more sensational experience.
It is only a matter of time before the 4D technology becomes the normal viewing mode for movies all over the world and 2D will completely become a thing of the past.
