Many movie theaters are struggling to secure ticket sales, but Immersit is a company that's giving consumers one more reason to stay at home and watch a movie.

Taking inspiration from the seats that can be found in a 4D theater experience, Immersit helps movie-watchers at home become involved in a complete sensory experience. The company's technology takes the form of a bespoke sofa that has the ability to react to the contents of a particular video game or movie.

With pneumatic feet powered by air pumps, individual seats are able to move up to four inches in forwards, backwards, rolling, shaking and vibrating motions. The commands for this unit are taken from a laptop or tablet, through a Wi-Fi connection. What makes this system the most genius of all for the movie industry is that it requires the purchase of a compatible DVD or Blu-ray disk in order to be properly synced.
