One of the defining features of Minecraft is its procedurally-generated landscape which creates unique and effectively infinite maps for players to explore. Now, with Minecraft on Gear VR and the Virtuix Omni VR treadmill, you can walk that infinite landscape on foot.
A couple of reddit threads already:

I think this is a very important step for VR. If I'm not mistaken, this is the first big 'native' VR game released for a major VR headset that has open world exploration, with an option to turn off comfort modes. Credit to everyone involved here; and especially Oculus and Mr John Carmack.
