  • Omni Advice - Movable Omni

    I own a HTC Vive and most of the content I play is Roomscale. However this meant I had a problem using my Omni since it is stored in a corner which doesn't track well and is extremely difficult to move while my base-stations are screwed into the wall.

    A few weeks ago I found a cheap solution that works for me - a set of 272kg rated appliance rollers for £12. I have both almost fully extended, one under the dish parallel with the footplate and the other parallel at the other-side. I can now roll my Omni into the middle of my roomscale space and back into it's corner with minimal effort. I have a thin carpet and the Omni does not move at all during use.If you have hard flooring I'd be more careful.

    Note: Clearly this is 'at your own risk' and not at all endorsed by Virtuix.

  • Re: Where can i find a Virtuix Omni Controller for Kinect Please?

    @Gustavo1995 This is what you are looking for: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/59049288/SkeletalViewer- WizDish.exe

    This is not the Virtuix one but the Wizdish one from the same time. Both did the same thing : translate movement seen by kinect into 'w' strokes on the keyboard. Thankfully both systems now use much better tracking ideas now since before you could not turn without moving forward.
  • Re: Arizona Sunshine , is it compatible after the new update ?

    There are ways to emulate a vive controller - the problem is that steamVR will pick it up as a third controller. What Omni needs to do is overwrite the trackpad data on (usually) the left controller. That would enable support for a LOT of new Vive games. I really hope that can happen!
  • Omni Meetup in Altspace VR!
