Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill To Ship This July
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
It’s been a long time coming, but I remember seeing the first few prototype videos of this, and I even happen to know a guy who owns one of these crazy VR treadmills, way before anyone else will get one. Us mere mortals however will have to wait just a while longer, as the Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill will begin shipping to Kickstarter backers this July, those who are quick and get theirs pre-ordered could see their stock arrive as early as September.
Demonstrations and trials of the Virtuix have proved very successful, allowing you to walk, run, jump and squat your way through your virtual environment. If you want to strap on the Oculus Rift or a similar VR device, you can then put on the special shoes that allow you to walk on the Omni treadmill, then go for a jog from Whiterun to Riften; keeping fit will never be the same again.
At just $499 for the Omni, special shoes, harness, software and some bundled software, the Omni is pretty good value for money, just try and find a good quality treadmill and you’ll see what I mean.
