The 'Virtuix Omni' Actually Lets You Run Around Video Games

The 'Virtuix Omni' Actually Lets You Run Around Video Games

The Virtuix Omni is a virtual reality gaming platform that lets you walk, run, and move around like you’re actually in the game.

It’s hands down the most immersive gaming experience we’ve seen so far. The simulator is currently available to pre-order at $499.

Just strap yourself into the Virtuix Omni platform, put on the Oculus Rift headset, and get ready to run. You have to physically move your body to advance in whatever game you’re playing.

So, with the help of CEO Jan Goetgeluk and his Virtuix Omni team, we headed over to the Engadget Expand conference to experience first-hand how this platform works.

    I am scared that people will stop physically interacting with each other just playing and indulged in VR.
    But wait

    I didn’t come to see the video, but to bring a message, the coming of Jesus Christ is near, repent of your sins and believe in the gospel of Jesus, Jesus is the only way.

  8. Kwaku Danso Vlogs on December 12, 2021 at 12:47 pm

  18. Daniel Boter on December 12, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    Playing with this would probably ruin my running technique

  19. +P Gaming on December 12, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    That standing Base design looks awfully familiar

  20. JCMR75 on December 12, 2021 at 12:57 pm

    I think most people get motion sickness after a few minutes of play. I never considered that until I had a go, shame.

  21. rodrigo sepulveda on December 12, 2021 at 12:59 pm

    Is a garbage, no Google, no meta, you free is your, the world go to the grong way, but you have decisión

    The first video game that parents would actually want their kids to play… Keeps you fit while you play indoor.

  27. 1TGF43T1TGFFGT143TR UEFHROWHEF0931434 on December 12, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    Will be launch on 2023 or 2027.
    just saved your money , they had greenlight on market last 3 years ago.

  28. Dectator 666 on December 12, 2021 at 1:07 pm

    Idiot can’t even hold the gun properly

  29. Quinlan Trudel on December 12, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    He doesn’t care…

  30. TheAnusIsntTheOnlyHoleIProbe on December 12, 2021 at 1:08 pm

    Isnt this the game that was In the movie First Kid?

  32. the hillbilly gamer ! on December 12, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    I don’t want to have to walk on it like it’s a damn exercise machine

  33. Alka Aurobindo on December 12, 2021 at 1:13 pm

    An omnidirectional treadmill would work too. Or just a ‘run’ button on the gun or whatever joystick for VR could work too. Barely one finger will be engaged. For fitness though this look better but imagine a flying kick will playing fifa. These gadget has a lot to evolve yet

  34. Treelon Musk on December 12, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    Bring an fps gamer to test this , not some random jurnalist guy

  35. All in one funs! on December 12, 2021 at 1:15 pm

    First time i see this real… But i think it in a different idea…
    How about under foot a rolling ball on in machine… So we can easily run..
    And belts holding our body in correct position..
    Gameplay excellent

  36. Lino Raphel on December 12, 2021 at 1:16 pm

    Here we go ready player one that movie is real

  37. Empress Atheism on December 12, 2021 at 1:18 pm

    Meta

  38. S 6 on December 12, 2021 at 1:19 pm

    Closed caption this one and read the first sentence. 😂

  39. NewAx_Productions on December 12, 2021 at 1:20 pm

    The thing is a cheap piece of shit, let us know when you have actual RP1 omnidirectional treadmills and stop pushing out shit products.

  40. Tryandstopme ࿕ on December 12, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    This would absolutely turn the tables of gaming… Most pro video gamers are a bunch of fatties, If everyone had this it would ensure only the most physical of players are actually pros.

  41. Abinadabe Alberone Dias on December 12, 2021 at 1:22 pm

    Deve ser uma merda kkkk

  42. Neeraj Verma on December 12, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Ready player one

  43. ishtar0077 on December 12, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    December 2021 to 2022

  44. Juice on December 12, 2021 at 1:28 pm

    The people who disliked it r just jealous they can’t try it

  45. ACE 47NB on December 12, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Nice technology & good ways to lose weight

  46. Riveravi on December 12, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Can wait to see what later iterations of this will look like. I think it become even more like just regular walking without that clunky belt and mass around the torso

  47. the hillbilly gamer ! on December 12, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    Who the hell wants to stand up and walk and run to play video games that’s too much like exercise you’re supposed to be having fun and relaxing not exercising

  48. Chris DeLaRosa on December 12, 2021 at 1:29 pm

    It’s like these people have never played Call of Duty before. Damn tourists

  49. Faucet Power on December 12, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    Looks awkward.

  50. james ness on December 12, 2021 at 1:32 pm

    This would take Call of Duty to a whole new level.
