Atomic Motion Systems is a brand name of Next Step Solutions, an engineering design and manufacturing company based in Southampton, UK.
2010 The first simulator prototype, the Atomic A1, was launched in August 2010 at the Gamescom Show in Cologne. With some 200 gamers trialling the seat with the Dirt rally game, it was clear that robustness and slick design would be key to optimising the simulator to the rigours of commercial use.
2011 The Atomic A2 was launched in May 2011, with global sales to a diverse range of commercial and home users. Atomic’s proprietary motion software, Simphynity, continued to grow the list of supported games.
2013 Further design improvements followed, which culminated with the release of the Atomic A3. With the subsequent growth of the VR market, the A3 is now used in VR entertainment centres in several countries, as a driver training aid, a research tool in academic institutions and as a personal entertainment unit.
2017 Atomic Motion Systems sign a Manufacturing Licence Agreement with Talon Simulations. Under the agreement, Talon are able to manufacture the A3 in the US for sale to the Americas region.
2018 Atomic Motion Systems and Blueflame Digital launch Actuate Motion software
