Cooler Master Motion 1 specs
Luckily for fans of D-BOX and other such haptic peripherals, there is a fair amount of tech specs confirmed on the page linked to via the tweet. This is unusual for products still in development and gives us somewhat of an idea concerning the chair. Annoyingly, information and specs for the base which controls the haptics are still fairly sparse, however, Cooler Master has provided an X-ray-esque image
The dimensions, materials, and adjustability measurements are confidence-inspiring as they closely align with many gaming chairs we’ve comes to test of the years here at WePC. Of course, statistics don’t always translate into comfort or ergonomics so a pinch of salt is a recommended seasoning with this info.
We can at least confirm the presence of both an adjustable headrest and lumbar support pillow, both of which are among the most important features of a good gaming chair. However, the armrests are adjustable only in height, which is disappointing considering the relative ubiquity of 4D armrests in today’s market.
