With just four days to go before the Kickstarter ends, the Omni virtual reality system has blown past its $150,000 goal, earning over one million dollars. Virtuix, the company behind the device, has now added a stretch goal. TRAVR is an open-source mini-game that will help demonstrate the full power of VR gaming with the Omni.
TRAVR will become a reality if they reach $1.1 million, but the Omni itself is already good to go and will be available for pre-order shortly after the Kickstarter campaign ends.
While headsets like the Oculus Rift allow gamers to visually experience their favorite games in a new way, when combined with the Omni, gamers can also traverse those games in a virtual reality environment using the Omni base and specialty shoes. It even counts the calories that you're burning while you're walking through City 17 or the beautiful lands of Skyrim.
