Virtuix is ready to show off the Virtuix Omni's final design at CES 2015 in January, with the company securing itself $2.7 million in investment funds.
The $2.7 million cash injection has perfect timing, as the company is ready to push its product into the commercial space. Virtuix is currently preparing the shipment of Omni units to its Kickstarter backers, as well as the full commercial launch. But first, they'll be showing off the final design of the Virtuix Omni at CES 2015 in Las Vegas, in the first week of January, just weeks away.
In February 2013, the company took in over $1.1 million from Kickstarter for the Virtuix Omni, and since then the company has been right on the edge of VR development. Virtuix CEO Jan Goetgeluk said: "Virtuix's mission is to take virtual reality beyond the chair. The Omni transforms VR into an active experience. These funds ensure that we can accelerate development of that mission beyond our upcoming commercial launch".
