At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week Virtuix is showcasing its Omni. The device is an omnidirectional treadmill which people can use to move in-game. For this you need Virtuix-made shoes. Now the company has unveiled small tracking pods that you clip to the shoes. These pods track your feet’s movements. Although this does not change the experience,the tracking of the players feet is supposed to improve the accuracy of the motion in-game. At CES people where able to try a demo while using the pods. The demo TraVR acts as a training experience so that people can see how acurate the pods make the Omni.
The Omni made some other strides recently with its partnership with CloudNav. Its partner company helped create software solutions for problems facing the Omni and because of the company Virtuix had a working demo to showcase currently at CES. Also Virtuix announce that the Omni is due to ship this quarter before CES. We will provide a hands-on in the near future. VRFocus will keep you updated on the the company as it progresses.
