Getting Our Butts Kicked
ChannelWeb editors thought they were being seated on a comfortable couch in Ingram Micro's digital home room until the couch started shaking and rumbling in syncopation with dinosaur attacks from the 2005 remake of the "King Kong" movie. Stewart said they were experiencing a demo of the ButtKicker, from The Guitammer Company, located in Westerville, Ohio.
The ButtKicker installs under a chair or sofa and features a low-frequency vibration in response to the bass sounds of musical recordings and movies to add realism to the listening and watching experience.
"One reseller brought a customer in, and the next day he ran out and bought a ButtKicker," she said.
