The Virtuix Omni is a VR treadmill that lets users physically walk, run, and jump in their favorite video games, and is best combined with VR devices like head mounted displays. It was first revealed and launched on Meant to be Seen’s discussion forums – the consumer arm of The ITA. This led to a very successful Kickstarter, and has pre-sold over three thousand units so far.
Their most recent success is having raised $3 million in private funding. Making things even more interesting is one of their investors, Mark Cuban’s Radical Investments, had originally denied backing Virtuix on Shark Tank. That opinion has obviously changed.
Congratulations to Jan Goetgeluk and the Virtuix team!
