Alu's MH OCH 300 Operators Chair Used In Age Of Extinction (Spoilers)

Weapon: Switch Blade Tail
According to Norwegian news site VG.no, a company by the name of Alu, based in Kristiansand, has produced the Aker Solutions MH OCH 300, an operators chair that's normally used to control ships and even drilling equipment on a massive scale. This time, however, one of their latest projects went in a direction they hadn't thought of previously. It still deals with machines on a massive scale, but now they're in the realm of science fiction.

These controller chairs may be what the humans, under the orders of human villain Harold Attinger (played by Kelsey Grammer), use to control the human made Stingers and Galvatron.

You can read the full article on VG.no's website, but you'll need to use Google Translate to read it, and we've copied an excerpt of the story behind all of this.

- I thought it was a joke

"Transformers" films are actually based on a toy, as the grip can be transformed into different shapes, machines and devices. They have been a huge high-tech, sci-fi success, both toy and movies. And here passport ie chair from Kristiansand perfectly.

- They called on April 1 last year, at. 22.30 in the evening. We thought the it was a joke, but responded affirmatively that they could borrow and use the chair in the movie. In June last year we sent as two chairs with flights to Detroit and got them back, gently used and without a scratch, after a few months, with enthusiastic comments; Paramount guys were totally "blown away," says Frankt Robertsen.

Transformers Age Of Extinction will make it's US appearance on June 27th, a little less than two months from now, so until then it'll be little tidbits such as these that keep us going until opening day. Just a little while longer, folks!

The next level of gaming? Being able to control actual physical forms of characters? Can't wait to see it in AoE.

No, there's a lot cooler and more high-tech & efficient means on the way for gaming. Although I've always been a fan of the idea of a cockpit style gaming setup for games that would fit into that slot/genre (simulators, zoids [ermagerd], and other scifi games that could makes great immersive use...titanfall?)

At first I thought this was a restraint chair for Transformers. Apparently that hasn't been invented in the Transformers universe. (Surprisingly, Lockdown doesn't have one.)

the next evolution of mechwarrior, or was it steel battalion that made you have that big ass controller set up? Any way that should be the new tag line for AoE

My family would stop in Chicago when the only VR in the USA was there...I loved the battletech pods (eventually at dave and busters before they stopped having them) When they were made they were cutting edge, they had some software updates (improved graphics) the experience was the best, but kids are used to higher end graphics now...I control chair/pod experience would be Phenomenal at home.
