An immersive VR locomotion solution that ditches the omnidirectional treadmill design in favor of a swivel chair.
If you’ve seen the movie ‘Ready Player One’ or have been to CES or other recent gaming/technology trade show, then odds are you’re at least somewhat familiar with the concept behind omnidirectional treadmills. The device is pretty much exactly how it sounds; a customized treadmill that allows you to move in any 360° direction while remaining stationary throughout. Naturally, these unique locomotion solutions have become immensely popular among VR developers.
However, because of how bulky and inconvenient size of current models, modern omnidirectional treadmills will not only ruin the feng shui of your living room, but take a bite out of your bank account as well.
