Virtual reality specialist Kat VR plans to launch a crowdfunding campaign this month for its new Kat Walk C virtual reality treadmill. Part of the appeal of virtual reality is the ability to totally become immersed in another world but it experiences can be limited by the constraints of physical spaces. While there are VR entertainment venues that are spacious and specifically designed to create boundless experiences, at-home experiences with virtual reality pale in comparison when blocked by real-world walls or furniture.
The Kat Walk C includes a rear-mounted vertical harness that helps to keep people in place yet still allow freedom for standing and crouching. With a slick surface underfoot, VR users are free to walk or run, adding a new layer of immersion to virtual reality at home.
