The next contraption for your makeshift holodeck comes in July: A $500 VR treadmill | GamesBeat
I backed this project on Kickstarter even though I wasn’t 100% convinced at the time. It has some real potential but the key is going to be how well software developed with its use in mind is going to be executed. A half hearted effort to support it in any game will bring a sub-par experience. This is definitely something to watch.
The virtual-reality revolution is charging ahead, and one piece of hardware that could prove key to its future will start shipping later this year.Virtuix is one of the companies working toward the VR future, and it plans to start shipping its Omni treadmill starting in July. Unlike Oculus and Sony, Virtuix isnt working on the optics of VR. Instead, it has a treadmill-like device called the Omni that it will start sending out to customers that already preordered this summer.
