While our Pathfinder production and shipments continue at a steady pace, we are excited to inform you of our recent CES 2016 and Testing-The-Waters successes. We continue to be humbled by the enthusiasm and support of our community, and we wouldn’t have come thus far without you. Thank you for your patience and for being such a crucial pillar of our story to date.
CES 2016 Award Winner
Virtuix just returned from an epic CES 2016 show in Las Vegas, where we won a Top Pick 2016 Award by Tom’s Hardware and received rave reviews from press and public who tried out our finished Omni units and Omni Arena multiplayer demo. We summarized a few of the excellent, top-tier press articles below:
- “This thing is freakin’ awesome. Loved it.” – Engadget
- “Yes, it really was that much fun. No apologies for our unbridled enthusiasm.” – Tom’s Hardware
- “Running around in a 3D environment is more fun than I can describe in words. I was excited beyond belief when I came out, and all I wanted was more.” –Tom’s Hardware
- “Like the Vive Pre, the Omni adds a fantastic new layer of immersion to the virtual reality experience, but in a way that is much more spatially efficient. The system is intuitive to use, and is clearly the successful and refined fruit of a long, iterative design process. Virtuix has set the bar very high with the Omni.” – Digital Trends
- “It all makes for a fascinating additional dimension, and anyone lured to VR may well find the Omni an indispensable part of the experience.” – Barron’s

VRLA and Active VR Panel
We have good news for those who plan to be at VRLA on January 23 in the LA Convention Center: Virtuix will be present at the show with an Omni for anyone to try. We will also be part of a panel called “Active VR: Enabling First-Person Shooters and Exploration in VR.” Our CEO Jan Goetgeluk will attend, and the panel will be moderated by our Head of Games, Robert Brackenridge. Other panelists include Nathan Burba (CEO, Survios) and Ray Davis (Studio Manager, Epic Games – Bullet Train). See a formal description below:
Active VR: Enabling First-Person Shooters and Exploration in VR
Moving around without limits in a virtual world through first-person navigation is currently a challenge for both seated and room-scale VR setups due to space constraints, safety issues, and simulator sickness. This panel will discuss how Active VR, where your movement in the virtual world is controlled by physical walking or running, enables popular VR experiences like first-person shooters or exploration games comfortably and safely without simulator sickness.
Stay tuned for more updates soon! And as always please join us on our Forums if you’d like to discuss this update or anything VR related: http://forum.virtuix.com
