[KAT WALK]- Our New Omni-directional Treadmill

Post by katvr »

Our team, named KAT, have developed a set of VR locomotion input device which may solve part of the problems of natural walking and with low constraint.

We are a young team, we want to share with you our prototype solution and see what you guys think of it.
Glad if anyone can give us some advise or suggestion : )

Of the ones i've seen i like it the best. Sitting is a great feature IMO. Just wish you could really flat out sprint or run pretty hard. I feel like i'd bust an ankle on it at some point after getting to excited. Really great start for the VR industry though from my limited perspective (i've had my head under a rock for just under a year learning art). Not sure what else is out there.

I think its going to take super fast ABB robot arms to do what i'd like though.

I really want one of these just for exercise or really just healthful movement. What am i talking about when i say "healthful movement" watch this [important (IMO)] video:
