Though, Virtuix Omni One Omni-directional Treadmill for virtual reality game isn’t new. We have seen it as far back as 2014, but this one appears to be more realistic in terms of the actions/movements you can do.
With Virtuix Omni One, you can walk and run in any direction and at any speed, jump, kneel, crouch et cetera. Basically, it is a FPS simulator.
Omni One is a complete entertainment system that comes with a standalone VR headset and therefore, there’s no cable to hinder your movement.
Measuring 4 feet in diameter, it comes with an articulated arm with a wearable vest attached. In someway, it looks like an action figure stand, but for real person which is kind quirky if you think about it.
