CES 2016 Recap Video
Virtuix made the following fun video of our presence at CES with testimonials of Tim Draper, Curtis Young (son of Dr. Dre), and others – enjoy!
Pathfinder Program Update
Virtuix continues to ship out our Pathfinder units at a steady pace. So far, no major hardware issues have been detected, which gives us confidence that we can ramp up our production after our Pathfinder program has been successfully completed. See a few videos below that were posted by two of our early Pathfinders. We’ll be sure to keep you closely updated on the results and findings of the program.
The attendees at CES played our latest Virtuix Omni demo experience called “Omni Arena”, which is an arena-style first-person shooter made specifically for VR and the Omni. Check out the video below of the Defend-The-Core level played with the latest HTC Vive HMD and Lighthouse controller:
While the video above shows single-player gameplay, Omni Arena is designed for a multiplayer Active VR experience. Adding multiplayer to the Omni gameplay truly creates an exciting and even addictive way of experiencing Active VR. We will release multiplayer gameplay videos of Omni Arena and its various game modes in the next few weeks. Omni Arena will be available for free to all our Omni backers and customers when ready.
Virtuix China Team
Happy belated Chinese New Year to our 12-person Virtuix China team, who successfully prepared and shipped out our Pathfinder Omnis before their annual break. Our Virtuix office located in Zhuhai in South China is one of the strongholds of our company, as our supply chain team keeps a close watch on the timing and quality of our production. Tom and co are eager to ramp up our production and ship out your Omni as soon as the Pathfinder program is completed!
Stay tuned for more updates soon. Thank you for your continued patience and support, and as always please join us on our Forums if you’d like to discuss this update or anything VR related:
