Virtuix Omni VR ready to hit the market to offer a fully immerse virtual reality gaming experience

With this device users can run and move applications and virtual reality games.

Virtuix Omni VR is a virtual reality system that we saw some time ago in prototype form. Unlike the Oculus Rift, this time there is no need for virtual reality helmet, but it is a complement to these devices.


Toms hardware is reporting that, Virtuix has finally revealed the ship date for the Omni VR treadmill: this September. The cost is surprisingly cheap, a fair $499 USD, which is also the price of a new Xbox One console. Unfortunately, the Omni pricetag doesn’t include the hefty shipping costs, the VR headset, and the PC game controller.

The Omni VT consists of a base material formed of a low resistance, along with special shoes, allow the user to walk or run without leaving your basement. This combined with a virtual reality helmet such as the Oculus Rift, allow us to immerse ourselves in virtual worlds simulated as we move through them freely, exactly as we would in reality.

To understand it better and see all the possibilities that can offer this device, you should watch the video below:

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the company has announced that in September will begin to distribute it to buyers, while those who donated to the campaign will receive theirs in July.

The price is $499, a figure higher than we imagined and gets you the base, shoes and a belt positioning us in space. Naturally the software and hardware module is included. We only have to purchase the Oculus Rift and have a PC.
