Oculus Rift gets hooked up to Virtuix's Omni treadmill, makes us reimagine the future gaming

Could the future of gaming be a mix with Oculus Rift and a treadmill?

| Wearable Computing News | Posted: Apr 22, 2013 7:35 am

With each passing day, Oculus' Rift VR headset is closer to being mine - but in the meantime, I'm continuing to grow the foam at my mouth for the headset. Now there's some interesting new developments, where Virtuix have posted some videos of their Omni treadmill working with Oculus' Rift VR headset.

 

 

This means you can walk, and run on the treadmill, while looking through the Oculus Rift. It's quite incredible, and something that I think, if were priced right, could really take off.
