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.
