The Virtuix Omni is basically an omni-directional treadmill designed for use with the Oculus Rift VR Headset — ¬†allowing the gamer to stand up and traverse the game’s virtual worlds with the natural use of their own feet.

Kickstarter campaign went live today with a goal of $150,000, but it has earned more than double that, almost one thousand backers pledged $368,987 running total.

The money from the campaign will be used improving the prototype. One of the main goals is to make a more streamlined design for mass production. Looks pretty neat, to say the least.
