Kickstarter Project: Omni brings movement into gaming consoles

There is Kickstarter projects where you just have to shake your head , and there are those which have a simple idea to implement skillfully . Omni likely inspire many gamers, at least when these are not glued to the couch.

Omni lifts the virtual reality gaming to a new level. Instead of moving with display glasses and controller through the virtual space, it actually runs around here. Movements are possible all around, the special design and the matching shoes are designed to provide a true running feel.

Apart from the podium, Omni rack is also equipped with hardware sensors that require special software. You get of course included. You have to put $ 479 for the complete package on the table, the cheaper packages that already are no longer available, include only the platform, tracking hardware and software, shoes and belts. The rack, without which the system does not seem to work, is not included there.

In the sample video you can see that the Omni system seems to work very well. Walking, running and jumping are well demonstrated in the demo video. In games that require movement of the game character, so you can dive even deeper into the game. Particularly attractive, the system seems to be naturally associated with first-person shooters.

The positive side effect is of course the movement, this harms not known. The Kickstarter funding target was easily reached, yet you have to enter 33 days time, if you want to have available as a part of the living room. Delivery is scheduled for January 2014. Together with an Oculus Rift VR glasses arises as a relatively inexpensive gaming system that is no comparison to the vile controller gameplay. Right in the middle, instead of just watching.

Such a system is certainly not for casual gamers, but what about the thoroughbred players from among you? Such a system is desirable and would you a complete package including VR goggles spend almost 1000 dollars? For Omni System on Kickstarter it comes along here .
