4D Cinema

I've just been watching a report from the BBC's Jo Black about 4DX cinema, and it being invented in Korea... 4D cinema was not invented in Korea a few years ago, it was around at the American Adventure here in the UK in the 1980's and 1990's!

It was called the "Motion Master Theatre"...

You can see the BBC report here:

But you can find pictures of the 4D cinema at the American Adventure here:

The projector here:

The motion systems were controlled by a DEC PDP11 mini-computer of mid 1980's production vintage, I've seen pictures of this system, but never saw it in person.

You can find pictures of the Motion Control room here:

I have of course rode the very uncomfortable seats at the park before it closed.
