Convinced my daughter to play The Bellows with the Omni. She does not do well with scary games, but managed to get through most of it. Only complaint would be I feel the collision model is too large for the tight hallways, you do tend to get stuck on corners and objects sometimes. Other than that, it reads each footstep perfectly.
I'm actually in the same boat, so to my wife's delight, decided to rip out the carpet and put in wood floors. I am then gonna purchase those low friction pads for moving furniture and place those under the Omni. My house has one of those old huge cutouts under the stairs for a massive HD projection tv with the huge butts. The omni fits perfectly in there and is out of the way, leaving room for roomscale games. Currently though at 260 lbs and on carpwt it takes 2 people and a hernia operation to move it back in there.1
Virtuix kinda put the market in a bad spot. I have had several people come over and try the Omni and they all had a blast and want to buy one, however, the only people getting one will be us Kickstarters. My friends wife who never plays games really wanted one as she is a runner, and with recently having a baby she hates running on a treadmill inside. Running through a game, or even google earth blew her mind, she had a blast. There are so many applications for this, but the scope will be limited for the next couple of years. Will be interesting to see where the consumers take the market.1
Apologies, here is the updated link..
And I messaged the devs and they plan to back several VR peripherals including eye trecking and feel real masks. Their next update will focus upon support for vr peripherals.1
