The Guitammer Company, a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker®-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience, has installed its ButtKicker Advance tactile transducers into the original passenger seating at the Concorde Experience at Brooklands Museum, the birthplace of British motorsport and aviation, to create a lifelike and unique dimension to each visitor’s virtual flight.
Gordon Roxburgh, head of the Concorde Experience team at Brooklands, stated, "We wanted to emulate the physical sensations normally experienced within the aircraft for the duration of the flight so that our visitors had an added sense of realism. The ButtKicker Advance units translate this feeling perfectly and bring the whole flight experience to life.”
The Concorde Experience is a 35-minute virtual flight that gives visitors the first-hand opportunity to experience what it was like to fly Concorde, replicating visual, physical and audio stimulation. ButtKicker’s transducers are also installed in the British Airways Concorde simulator at Brooklands, enriching the flight experience and adding a realistic, tactile effect to the pilot seats in the full-size static simulator.
The iconic Concorde aircraft has been a feature at Brooklands since it was officially opened by HRH Prince Michael of Kent in 2006 after a two-year restoration project. More information about the Concorde experience can be found at www.brooklandsmuseum.com
