Virtuix, the company behind the virtual-reality treadmill, Omni, has announced a partnership with Chinese game publisher Hero Entertainment. Responsible for enormously popular shooters like Crisis Action, the Chinese game firm is looking to install a number of VR arcade setups around the country, with the Omni as a focal piece of hardware.
The companies won’t be stopping there, though. They’re also looking to push physical esports, utilizing the treadmill to drive first-person shooter competition that also requires real physical exertion.
