D-BOX Motion Gaming Chair Now Available through Voodoo



    Voodoo customers now have easy access to the ultimate gaming accessory

    LONGUEUIL, QC, Sept. 28 /CNW/ - D-BOX Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: DBO.A)
announced today that its D-BOX Motion Gaming Chair will now be available for
sale in the United States and Canada as an accessory to the award-winning
gaming PCs from Voodoo, a high- performance computer gaming brand of HP.
    The D-BOX Motion Gaming Chair delivers an immersive gaming experience so
users feel the bumps on a racetrack track, the G's in the curves of a road,
acceleration down the straights, and the engine at redline. It will perfectly
complement Voodoo's high-performance, high-octane gaming experience.
    "This is a very special time for D-BOX, as our technology will be
promoted in North America by a world class provider of gaming PCs," said
Claude Mc Master, President and Chief Executive Officer of D-BOX Technologies.
"We are very proud to have entered this relationship with Voodoo as we
anticipate that it will help accelerate the penetration of our gaming motion
technology and our efforts to establish it as a world standard in the
entertainment industry."
    In its original configuration, D-BOX's GP-200 Motion Gaming Chair comes
equipped with 3 motion actuators - small robot-like legs - that deliver three
degrees of freedom (pitch, roll and heave). The chair also includes a USB
motion interface, a force feedback racing wheel with pedals and shifter, a
complete speaker system and a racing seat belt, all mounted on a sturdy steel
tube frame. The GP-200 Motion Game Chair is compatible with most high-profile
racing and flight simulation games.
    "We are very impressed by D-BOX's motion technology," said Phil McKinney,
vice president and chief technology officer, Personal Systems Group, and
general manager, Global Gaming Business Unit, HP. "We feel that adding the
experience of motion technology enhances game play by bringing the player into
a more immersive experience. D-BOX is a pioneer in this field and we are
pleased to be working with them."
    The D-BOX Motion Gaming Chair will be offered as an option to gamers at
www.voodoopc.com.

    About D-BOX
