Virtuix Omni Announces Ship Dates

By November 4, 2013 March 24th, 2020 News

For those unfamiliar, the Virtuix Omni is an upcoming VR treadmill that lets you walk, run and jump in your favorite games.  It’s just another little bit of VR history that first got revealed here on MTBS! ;=)

Virtuix Omni
Originally, the Virtuix Omni used Microsoft Kinect to detect leg and body movement, and is now using capacitive sensors to do the same thing more effectively and probably with less latency as well.  The above picture shows a prototype version using this updated technology.

Announced in their latest Kickstarter update, Virtuix has already shipped all the “priority” prototype versions around the world, but most of the Kickstarter backers will have to wait until March / April 2014 to get their Omnis in the mail.  C’est la vie!

    Cool.

    They asked at Kickstarter to confirm my shipping address a long time ago, so they could send me the autographed copy of the Ready Player One book. I am still waiting for it. Did anybody else get their book?

    Sorry, I didn’t pledge for that reward.

    I actually already have a signed copy of RPO. Yeah.

    I am an avid book collector, owning more than 10,000 books (with many autographed books in my collection). I chose that specific early backer level when the Virtuix Omni kickstarter first began, primarily for the AUTOGRAPHED book (which is why I did not get the “DIY support frame” level instead).

    Shortly after I posted the message above, a manager at Virtuix popped an UNSIGNED copy of the book in the mail. I received it today.

    It was nice of Virtuix to send me a spare copy to give to a fellow Rifter, however, I am still looking forward to receiving my autgraphed copy of the book.

    It would be even nicer if somebody at Virtuix could pop my AUTOGRAPHED book in the mail too, ASAP.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I looked all over in and out for the autograph … not there… :(

    EDIT: I see now that it IS signed, several pages in, small signature, on the title page that is AFTER all the pages of reviews and such. I missed it earlier… Oops… :o And thanks JanVR;)

    That’s cause he signed it virtually.

    AHahah! Sorry.
