Omni One 4

Virtuix aims Omni One VR treadmills at home users for immersive gaming, exercise and entertainment.

Virtuix has announced that it is shipping Omni One virtual reality treadmills to its investor community in preparation for a wider launch for consumers later this year. The company is also raising more money through a crowdfunding campaign. The consumer version of the Omni One will be an omni-directional treadmill that enables players to walk or run in any direction through video games and other virtual environments. Virtuix has a waitlist for Omni One of more than 35,000 subscribers who have signed up online.
Omni One is a VR entertainment system that currently ships with a Pico Neo 3 Pro headset and works straight out of the box without needing a PC or other peripherals, providing a seamless user experience. Omni One lets you walk or run in video games or other virtual worlds, in any direction and at any speed, while occupying only a small amount of floor space. It allows unrestricted, full-body movements including crouching, kneeling, and jumping.
Inspired by the popular Omni Pro, a commercial version of the Omni available at more than 500 entertainment venues in 45 countries, Omni One is designed to fit inside a living room or other place in your home. Compared to Omni Pro, Omni One is lighter, more compact (4-foot diameter), easy to fold up or move around, and allows players unmatched freedom of movement, including crouching, kneeling, and jumping.
Omni One’s introductory price is $2,595 plus shipping. The complete system with all accessories weighs about 150 pounds (70 kg). It accommodates users from 4 feet, 4 inches to 6 feet, 4 inches in height (132 to 192 cm), and up to 250 pounds (113 kg).
Virtuix’s first Omni One customer, Dale Western, described what drives consumers like him to buy Omni One. “I decided to purchase Omni One because I was looking for a more immersive VR experience as opposed to sitting on a couch and pretending to be in virtual reality”. Investors also share this enthusiasm for Omni One. Backed by major investors, Virtuix has raised $35 million to date and has shipped over $16 million worth of products, including over 4,000 Omni Pro systems in 45 countries and more than 70 Omni Arena systems to U.S. entertainment venues.
Before bringing Omni One to the mass market, Virtuix will expand awareness of Omni One among consumers, gamers and the investment community by running a Reg CF campaign through its Series B funding round. Virtuix has an expanding and devoted player base of more than 300,000 registered Omni players at commercial venues. This large player community, together with an install base of thousands of commercial Omni Pro systems globally, provides a direct and low-cost sales channel for Omni One.
