Way back on January 12th this year during CES Philips had on display some new technology called amBX, the technology they were showing off at CES is now available for the public to purchase as they've released a Press Release, here is the press release in full:

Quote:

Philips Electronics today announced an agreement with THQ that will see Gas Powered Games’ Supreme Commander amBX-enabled and bundled with Philips amBX PC Gaming Peripherals.

Conceived and developed by Philips, amBX is a giant step towards a full sensory surround experience and revolutionises the gameplay experience by extending the gaming world out of the screen and into the real world through the use of light, colour, sound and even airflow.

Supreme Commander is the first real-time strategy game to receive the amBX ‘ambient experiences’ treatment and will allow THQ to offer realistic light, wind, explosion and rumble effects. amBX lights will enhance the feeling of immersion by reflecting the environmental colours of the landscape and sky, as well as pulsing with the searing light of explosions. The rumbler will let you feel every nuke and salvo, with fans providing the whoosh from the nuclear charged wind and the sensation of floating in the slipstream above battle.

“Supreme Commander is the perfect title to accompany and showcase the Philips amBX Gaming Peripherals effects,” commented Engelbert van Pelt, General Manager New Business Development, Philips Consumer Electronics. Supreme Commander’s real-time strategy gameplay has gone down a storm with the gaming media and across land, sea and air, will maximise the lighting, wind and rumble effects that the amBX PC Gaming Peripherals are capable of delivering. War gaming has never been so realistically scary.”

“Supreme Commander was more than just pushing the boundaries of the existing RTS genre, it was about experimenting with new ideas that had never been tried before, ” said Chris Taylor, CEO of Gas Powered Games. “Teaming up with Philips to utilize amBX Gaming Peripherals allows us to continue to push into new areas, raise the bar even higher, and give players an experience they have never had before... this is what the future of gaming is all about! ”

Berlin, 29th August 2007 - Philips Electronics today announced an agreement with THQ that will see Gas Powered Games’ Supreme Commander amBX-enabled and bundled with Philips amBX PC Gaming Peripherals.

The launch range of Philips amBX PC Gaming Peripherals includes a pair of left and right satellite lights, a pair of left and right satellite 2.1 speaker lights and subwoofer, a pair of desk fans, a ‘wrist rumbler’ and a directional wall washer light and controller unit.

Capable of representing a staggering 16 million different colours, the left and right satellite lights will change colour and intensity in the context of the Supreme Commander gameplay onscreen. The left and right satellite 2.1 speaker lights and subwoofer also offer 160-watt multidirectional sound complete with dynamic bass boost, adding realism while reducing the clutter of separate speakers.

Compact, adjustable and with variable rotation speed, the desk fans allow both slow and fast airflow, up to 5000 RPM - simulating a variety of in-game experiences, including wind, collision impact, acceleration, velocity, airflow from an airplane propeller or even a drop in ambient temperature.

With two integrated motor drives and variable rotation speed, the wrist rumbler enables Supreme Commanders to actually feel movement, experiencing the action through vibration. The rumble will work simultaneously with the light and air movement to - allow gamers to truly see hear and feel more of the game

Serving as the central control unit, the directional wall washer light and controller unit flood the wall behind the PC or laptop screen with different coloured light through three powerful banks of LEDs. All amBX PC Gaming Peripherals are linked to the central control unit through USB 2.0 connections.

Philips has established a global standard by licensing the amBX technology to computer game developers and publishers, including THQ, Gas Powered Games, Codemasters, Kuju, Introversion, Revolution, Sumo Digital and Rivers Run Red. Philips is currently in the closing stages of agreements with a raft of other high profile companies regarding amBX-enabling all kinds of games.
