HotHardware writes about the next generation of gaming accessories that promise to immerse you deeper into the game than ever before. A company called Virtuix is working on Omni, a multi-directional threadmill that provides a natural motion interface for virtual reality applications. In the video clip below, you can see someone playing Team Fortress 2 using the Omni along with the Oculus Rift VR headset.
You can see in the video how much running and movement this fellow does. With something like the Omni in our living room (eh, who are we kidding, the basement), we imagine that we’d get ourselves in terrific shape in no time at all. (Instead of Doritos and Mountain Dew, we’d be slamming back Power Bars and Gatorade for all night gaming sessions.)
