Virtuix

Fully immersive virtual reality gaming platform

The Virtuix Omniā„¢ is the first ever virtual reality platform for moving freely and naturally in virtual worlds, compatible with the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, and any other future head mounted displays.

The Omni is a patent-pending omni-directional treadmill that solves the 20-year old problem of locomotion: how do you physically walk around in the virtual world while being confined within the limited space of your room? The Omni is the first and only omni-directional treadmill that is affordable, compact, and enables the user to walk, run, and jump naturally in 360 degrees. More than 4,000 units have been sold to date.

Virtuix successfully raised $1.1 million on Kickstarter for the Omni in June 2013 and has raised $7MM to date from investors including Mark Cuban, WTI, Scout Ventures, Scentan Ventures, Tekton Ventures, Maveron, StartCaps, 2020 Ventures, among others.
