It’s hard to watch TV right now without seeing a commercial advertising a virtual reality headset. But if you look closely, you’ll notice that people using VR headsets are always sitting down.
That makes its fair share of sense. With VR, you don’t want people moving around too much. That is, unless you’re Austin-based Virtuix, a startup that’s revolutionizing the industry with a first-of-its-kind, full mobility VR gaming device called the Omni.
Founder and CEO Jan Goetgeluk launched Virtuix in 2013 to design the most physically immersive field of VR gaming currently on the market. He and his team have developed an integrated movement platform and paired it with commonly used VR headsets, handsets and game content to provide a 360-degree gaming experience — setting into motion a new field of gaming technology: active VR.
