Taiwan Firm Seeks to Bring Motion Simulation Technology Into Gaming Industry
Internet Motion Navigator (IMON), a Taiwan-based maker of motion simulation machines, is seeking new business opportunities through applying its motion simulation technology based on 6-axis control to arcade/casino or entertainment gaming machines, Digitimes.com reported.
IMON's sports motion simulation machines include car and tank simulators as well as aviation and marine navigation, the company indicated. As prices for IMON's products are less than two-thirds those of comparable models produced by Japan-based makers, IMON reportedly has enjoyed 200-300 percent annual growth in shipment volumes since it began production in 2006.
Of its current shipment volume, the United States and Europe each account for 30 percent while Russia, the Middle East and China together account for 40 percent.
