The Virtuix Omni is like a cross between a treadmill and a trampoline. Instead of solely walking or jumping, it allows people to do both in any direction they desire. The Virtuix Omni is meant to work in conjunction with the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality device. Together, they create an immersive experience that will appear more real than ever.

In place of a moving belt, the surface of the Virtuix Omni is more akin to the trampoline. It boasts a slick, sloped surface that users slide down as they take move forward. This may seem like a challenge, but it could solve the issue of disorientation when it comes to Oculus Rift.

The Virtuix Omni will soon be launched as a Kickstarter campaign. Stats for Omni-Directional Gaming Treadmills Trending: Older & Mild
