The treadmills are ready to be shipped in July and come in a package that would cost $500

The Virtuix's Omni treadmill is based upon the newly embraced concept of virtual reality and it brings the treadmill in a different virtual reality platform which allows the users to run and walk in any direction in the games they are playing. So basically the users can play games using their very own legs. The first of the orders will begin to ship from July and these will be for the users who have already pre ordered. This new virtual reality treadmill comes in a package which is going to cost you $500 and includes the treadmill unit, a pair of shoes, a support harness, mini-game and tracking software and hardware. However, this package does not include the shipping cost but includes a one year warranty. For those who are going to pre order their virtual treadmills now will receive them by the month of September.

The pre oders were taken by Virtuix in August last year which had followed a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that ended in July. The virtual reality treadmill developer has so far managed to raise $1.1 million on the crowdfunding platform and has already pushed well past its $150,000 goal in its first day.
