The Sensorama was a machine that is one of the earliest known examples of immersive, multi-sensory technology. Morton Heilig, who today would be thought of as a “multimedia” specialist, in the 1950s saw theater as an activity that could encompass all the senses in an effective manner, thus drawing the viewer into the onscreen activity. He dubbed it “Experience Theater”, and detailed his vision of multi-sensory theater in his 1955 paper entitled “The Cinema of the Future”. In 1962 he built a prototype of his vision, dubbed the Sensorama, along with five short films for it to display. Predating digital computing, the Sensorama was a mechanical device, which still functions today.
