Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill Begins Shipping In July For $499
Virtuix has missed its initial planned ship date of March 2014, but considering what the company is trying to do with this VR treadmill, that’s not such a bad miss. The device promises to let you run, jump, squat, and otherwise move through virtual worlds, and it’s designed to be paired with the Oculus Rift (and a PC). If this thing works half as well as promised, it will be a milestone in the VR gaming field.
A Virtuix Omni treadmill will run you $499, which doesn’t include shipping fees but does include special shoes, a support harness, software, and a mini game that shows what the thing can do. You can also snag a pair of Omnis with three pairs of shoes with the Duel Package (it’s a pun, get it?) for $1,019.
