Virtuix today launched Omniverse, a content distribution platform for Omni commercial operators that features licensed VR content, a flat-rate compensation system, and a user profile system that syncs with all Omniverse arcade locations.
Four years ago, Virtuix launched a Kickstarter campaign for an omnidirectional treadmill system called Omni, which featured a locomotion solution that offered deeper immersion into VR games. The company needed $150,000 to help manufacture the first run of its concept. Virtuix’s idea struck a chord with VR early adopters, and the company secured just over $1.1 million from 3,249 backers before the campaign ended.
