Did Ready Player One get you all fired up for immersive virtual reality (VR), then you realised it’s not quite at Oasis levels just yet? Well some of the tech in the film wasn’t so futuristic with Infinadeck Omnidirectional VR treadmill making an appearance. Today, Infinadeck has announced a new partnership with wireless VR specialists TPCAST, allowing users to take a stroll through vast, immersive new worlds untethered.
