Virtuix Omni VR treadmill + Oculus Rift + Minecraft = WIN!

The guys from Virtuix released a video showing multiplayer VR Minecraft. Take two of our favorite things and add a third and you have a nearly perfect way to escape reality.

The Virtuix Omni, an omnidirectional treadmill for VR promises to turn couch potato gamers in to lean gaming machines. The Omni is the first VR interface that allows the user to move freely and naturally in any horizontal direction just by walking or running. Virtuix accomplished this feat by designing the Omni as a slick inverted dome. The play wears special footwear that provides minimal friction against the omni’s base. Sensors in the base detect the players position and stride and translate that to commands the computer can understand.
