Welcome to our Developer Resource Center! On this page you will find information regarding the Omni SDK, our demo games, and helpful links to additional developer resources. Please join in the conversations we are having with other developers on our developer forums. Or get in touch with our Developer Relations team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Omni applications enable players to walk around and explore VR in ways never seen before:
Immersion through physical walking and running in 360 degrees inside a game or VR application
De-coupled looking / walking direction
The ability to walk in one direction while looking around independently in any other direction gives the player the natural experience of looking around for danger or observing the surroundings while moving
Analog walking and running speed in-game matches the player’s physical movement speed on the Omni
The Omni Software Development Kit (Omni SDK) is the development gateway to Active VR experiences with the Omni. Request our SDKs for Unity and Unreal Engine 4 via the link below. After submitting the form and review by our team, you will receive an email with a link to download our SDKs.
To use the Omni’s “de-coupled” navigation mode, the Omni unit will need to be calibrated via the Omni calibration tool. This calibration application is included in the SDK package, or you can download it separately via the download link below.
Note: If you plan to develop your own software application for the Omni, your Omni unit will need to be “unsecured”. If your unit appears “locked”, please contact your Virtuix representative to request that your unit be unsecured. Unsecured Omni units will not be compatible with our Omniverse content platform. You also need the latest version of Omni Connect with the latest Omni firmware, which you can download via the resource link below.
You must agree to the Terms And Conditions before downloading the SDK.
