Virtuix Omni

omni

Virtuix Omni is an omnidirectional treadmill video game peripheral for virtual reality games currently in development by Virtuix. The Omni uses a slippery platform used to simulate the motion of walking. The platform requires special shoes that reduce friction when walking.

The player is fully enclosed within a ring that works with a safety harness to absorb the player’s weight.┬áThe Omni is designed to be used with a head-mounted virtual reality display, such as the Oculus Rift.
