Rule 18: Limber Up, Omni VR Gaming Treadmill Up for Preorder at $499

Gaming is climbing to new heights thanks to emerging virtual reality technology, and a virtual reality treadmill is now up for preorder. The Virtuix Omni’s Kickstarter campaign has ended, and Virtuix achieved its goal of over $1.1 million (via 3,000 backers).

For $499, you can order an Omni National Motion Interface treadmill (not counting shipping) that comes with a pair of special shoes, a belt, and the necessary hardware and software for tracking. If the whole family wants in on the action, $1,019 gets you the Omni Duel Package that includes two treadmills with all the aforementioned extras (but three pairs of shoes instead of one).

The Omni will ship in March 2014, so even those jumping in feet first and preordering have a long wait. If the Omni is as fun as it looks, especially when paired with an Oculus Rift headset, it’s probably well worth it.
