Production of our Pathfinder units continues at a steady pace. A new batch is on its way to the US for delivery next week. Virtuix is glad to report that we have not experienced any hiccups thus far. See a few recent pictures below!
Launch Event Video
Virtuix hosted close to 30 backers and supporters in our headquarters in Austin on December 17 to celebrate our shipping launch and to give our community a sneak peek at our Omni Arena multiplayer experience. The night was a great success. Check out the following video with footage and testimonials of the event and guests playing Omni Arena:
Omni Arena eSports Tournament at CES 2016
Virtuix is currently putting the final touches on our booth at CES 2016 in Las Vegas, where we will host the first VR eSports tournament featuring four Omnis on stage and live commentators calling the action. Virtuix is an official partner of HTC at the show and have the latest Vive HMD kits on display.
Players will compete in Omni Arena, an arena-style first-person shooter demo experience made specifically for VR and the Omni. Virtuix will showcase two different gameplay modes at CES. In our Co-Op mode, two players work together to defend a central core that is attacked by a series of enemies.
In “Hard Point”, players compete to achieve the highest score by defending a hard point in the Arena while trying to shoot each other.
Playing multiplayer Omni Arena with the Omni highlights how the solitary, seated VR experience can be elevated to active, addictive, and social VR gameplay that is absolute FUN. We can’t wait to continue the development of this game and share more with you soon!
Potentially Investing in Virtuix
Virtuix often receive inquiries from our backers and supporters about how they can invest and purchase shares in Virtuix. Thanks to the recent JOBS Act Regulation A, now everyone may have a chance to invest in tech startups alongside Silicon Valley venture capitalists and global institutional investors.
As is common when startups begin shipping their first product, we too are looking to raise a “Series A” round of financing in early 2016, which will fund our future growth and further product development. Given that we were kickstarted by our amazing community, and that we would not be here today if it weren’t for your ongoing support, we are considering structuring our next financing round as a Reg A offering, which would be open to our community. If Virtuix ever makes it big thanks to your support, we believe you should have the opportunity to share in its success.
We have launched a “Testing-The-Waters” campaign on SeedInvest to collect non-binding indications of interest from potential investors, which will help us decide if a Reg A offering is the right option for us. Your feedback will help us decide whether we should pursue a Reg A offering for our next round of financing.
If you are interested to learn more and would like to indicate your interest in potentially investing in Virtuix alongside Silicon Valley VC’s, please visit the link below. We invite you to become part of the next chapter of our story!
