Kat Walk Kickstarter Campaign Launched

The progression of virtual reality (VR) into the mass market is starting to come to fruition, with the next 12 months to see a flurry of new technology to hit retail stores. But while the head-mounted displays (HMD) are at the top of wish lists, there are companies keen to enable consumers to further enjoy the world of VR. Yesterday saw the launch of a new Kickstarter campaign for the Kat Walk. Kat Walk is an omni-directional treadmill by Chinese company KatVR.

The Kat Walk omni-directional treadmill has been designed to be as unrestrictive as possible giving the user 360 degrees of continuous movement within a small space. Unlike other omni-directional treadmills the Kat Walk doesn’t have a ring around the waist which can feel restrictive, instead it has an over-head support with a suspended harness that can hold up to 308lbs (140kg) in weight. Without a ring or column surrounding you, it allows you to chop, wave, pick, beat, kick, run sharply and more.

The Kickstarter campaign is looking to achieve a funding goal of $100,000 USD by 22nd August and has so far reached $42,589 from 74 backers.

VRFocus will continue to follow the progress of the Kat Walk campaign and report on any further updates.
