Tom's Hardware Tries The Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill

I distinctly recall that when I first heard of the Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill, I was mightily skeptical. It just seemed so bizarre -- and it came to the fore at a time when HDMs like the Oculus Rift were miles away from being consumer-ready, finished products. Fast forward a couple of years, and there the thing is, in a wild, loud and fun booth on the show floor at CES.

Yes, it really was that much fun. No apologies for our unbridled enthusiasm.

    Good article, one typo. HMD instead of HDM.

    The gun were were using is an off the shelf xbox light gun. its not attached to the game in any way in the setting we were in.
    The CEO of the company told us that lighthouse trackers can be used (Virtuix is a Vive partner) to track guns but the CES show floor has too much going on for the tracking to work properly.
    Aiming with your head works fine, but its not the only way it can be done.
