Virtuix Omni Now Available for Pre Order   omni

Do you love to walk but hate to go places? Then the Virtuix Omni might be for you! In all seriousness, the omni-directional treadmill that’s poised to take virtual reality to the next level is now available for pre-order after a successful campaign secured its existence.

Virtuix’s online store is now taking pre-orders for both the Standard Omni Package and the Duel Omni Package. Both packages come with shoes, harnesses, and accessories. Virtuix is offering a $50 discount if you order and use the code “VR50″ before August 13.

For those who want to check it out in person, the Omni will be on display at PAX Prime in Seattle, which runs from August 30 to September 2. You can find it in Zone 2 on Level 6 of the expo floor. One Omni alone will run you $500 plus shipping, so it’s definitely a good idea to check it out in person if you can. Our very own Michael Kwan tried the Virtuix Omni at E3 earlier this year, so you can peep that video too.

The full press release is below.

About the Virtuix Omni™

The Virtuix Omni™ is the first virtual reality interface for moving freely and naturally in your favorite game.

A revolution in virtual reality is underway—consumers can now explore virtual worlds with the natural use of their hands and eyes thanks to affordable devices such as the Razer Hydra and Oculus Rift. The Omni evolves virtual reality one step further, allowing anyone to stand up and traverse virtual worlds with the natural use of their own feet. True virtual reality cannot be experienced sitting down. The Omni will free gamers from passive, seated gameplay, unleashing the full potential of virtual reality gaming.

Applications of natural movement in virtual reality stretch far beyond gaming: training and simulation, fitness, virtual tourism, virtual tradeshows and events, meet-ups and multi-person adventures, virtual workplaces, museums, VR architecture, VR concerts… The possibilities are limitless.
