The Sweetness of $3 Million For Virtuix

Now how about that!  MTBS alumni and Immersive Technology Alliance member Virtuix raised $3 million in seed funding for the continued development and launch of the Virtuix Omni treadmill / platform.  For those unfamiliar, this device lets you physcially walk, run, jump and crouch in your virtual world, and is best combined with a head mounted display for a completed VR experience.

However, what makes this story even sweeter is one of the same investors that balked at the idea of backing Virtuix (Radical Investments' Mark Cuban) on Shark Tank has had a change of heart and joined a diverse investment group to help make this venture possible.

Congratulations Jan!

What made this interview interesting was the process they went through to make the software work.
