Could be attached to software to give you the feeling of driving or flying (with flight simulator).
The idea isn't to make an expensive thing, just a simple up down every once in a while this way or that chair.
Could also be implemented by having an inflateable cusion with different parts getting
inflated and deflated (is that the way to say it?).

||Sharper Image has been selling these things for years.
||So... this isn't a Poltergeist chair?
||I have a chair designed to make you feel like you're in the front row of a rock concert, or right down beside a symphony orchestra. Vibrating speakers throughout the chair do it. Put on a headset, and someone sitting right next to you only hears a vague rumbling.
Now if only it moved! Maybe the motion controllers can be similar in design to force feedback joysticks.
