Virtuix is a company that has been developing VR treadmills for over a decade. Their first product, the Virtuix Omni, was designed for consumers but proved too complex and expensive for most people. The company pivoted to the out-of-home VR attraction space, now installed in 73 entertainment spaces across the US. However, after a $4.7 million crowd investment round, Virtuix is returning to its roots. The company is launching the Omni One, a new all-in-one VR treadmill for consumers. The Omni One is designed to be more affordable and easier to use than the original Omni while still providing a high-quality VR experience.
One of the key features of the Omni One is its new arms support design. The original Omni had a ring support that restricted the user's movement, but the Omni One's arm support allowed for a full range of motion. This makes it possible to play VR games that require crouching, leaning, and moving your arms freely.
Another key feature of the Omni One is its integrated VR headset. The Omni One comes with a Pico Neo 3 headset, a standalone VR headset that doesn't require a PC. This makes the Omni One much more convenient than other VR treadmills, which often require a complex PC setup.
The Omni One also has a custom-made Omni storefront that serves content specifically made or adapted for the VR treadmill. This means you'll be able to find a wide variety of games and experiences optimized for the Omni One's unique capabilities.
The Virtuix Omni One is a significant step forward for VR treadmills and the VR industry. It's more affordable, easier to use, and more versatile than previous VR treadmills. VR treadmills have the potential to make VR a more immersive, engaging, and accessible experience. This will help to bring VR to a wider range of people and make it a more mainstream entertainment platform.
