Preorders have opened for the Virtuix Omni Natural Motion Interface, the Kickstarter-funded omnidirectional gaming treadmill that offers full virtual reality when combined with an Oculus Rift.
The hardware is expected to ship in March 2014.
Customers purchasing the INR 30599 package will get the Omni platform, shoes, belt, and tracking hardware and software. A second package is available for INR 62499, which includes two treadmill packages and a third pair of socks.
Additional shipping costs will be levied once the device is ready to ship.
