D-BOX Technologies is a Canadian company, which designs, manufactures, and markets motion systems intended mainly for the entertainment and industrial simulation markets in 4D.[1] The audience seats are motorized in such a way to create an effect of movement, timed precisely with that of visual images, and making the audience feel that they're tilting back and forth or moving up or down. The seats can also vibrate and shake in time with explosions and other kinds of action sequences.

D-BOX Technologies is based in Longueuil, Quebec, Canada.[2]
