Transducers vs. Motion Systems

Do you know the difference between a Tactile Sound Transducer and a motion system?

Let’s first take a look at a motion system

A motion system physically moves something, usually in a single axis.

That’s why motion systems are typically used on shake tables.

They move the table up and down to try to shake something till it breaks.

Everything from cell phones to satellites are tested on shake tables.

Some people place them on movie theater chairs.

They are a lot of fun for a few minutes – about the same amount of time as a theme park ride.

Since the experience of a motion system is so unnatural, they become tiring after a few minutes.

Clark Synthesis takes a different approach.

Without setting anything in motion, Clark Transducers precisely inject vibrations into the user’s environment.

These vibrations mimic what’s going on in the real world.

Since induced vibrations are how we experience many of the real world’s haptics, the user experience is more natural

In a theater chair, the viewer experiences a new depth of reality, bringing enjoyment to hours of movie watching.

That’s why Clark Transducers are used in home theaters and Virtual Reality settings worldwide.
