    Maybe the treadmill should be non-automatic? Using mechanisms on the treadmill keep you in the center based off of your center of gravity being off center with the treadmill brings up a lot of problems clearly. why not apply Newton’s third law? Your step pushes the treadmill back. Would that not give your body the same feeling as the earth pushing you forward when you push down on it? You’d have to grease up the bearings like hell so it doesn’t take much force at all from your legs to push the “ground” behind you- but I feel like that would make a bunch of calculations easier, and make it feel like you are actually walking freely

    As I pointed out on the "smarter Every Day" video about this: People can learn to adapt to walking on surfaces that are not stable. Sailors on their ships learn how to walk, even run, on ship decks that have extra motion that is not put in by the walker.

    The suspended low friction treadmills like Omni are clearly the better way to do this. The only chance they will have is if they can get this thing to handle quick movements that rapidly change without causing you to faceplant.

    If you look at where the centre of mass of the human is located while walking, it seems to be about three quarters of the way towards an external edge.. and you can tell by the way they take tiny baby steps they know this, are feeling uncomfortable about stepping off or reaching that edge. When walking (especially steady state, in the same direction with the same speed) their centre of mass needs to be slap bang in the middle of the treadmill. They're not quite there yet.

    I feel like they are so close. The trackers are on the feet but have no say in the movement of the treadmill. The feet handle the majority of the work in movement in real life. Foot movement needs to be what dictates when the treadmill begins to move and stop

    I'm wondering why the treadmill can't be a powerless one? just strap yourself in the middle... the belt should be curved inward and the cross one be a bit loose so that they sag in the middle.. creating a bowl for you to walk around in.

    its so weird because irl, fall and pull and push the ground but you can see the legs kinda jerking as they hit the ground like they do when you are walking downhill constantly, this cant be good for the knees.

  27. Protocurity

    ProtocurityMonth ago

    I'm watching the video, and it seems like this thing would be a lot safer if the track was 1 foot wider and longer while the tracker was in the same place. While walking they are mere inches from catching on the edge with the front of their foot.

    It is my opinion only so it may be false. So the system basically a treadmill on a treadmill and tracking your movement. Why don't just put a treadmill on a 360 rotatable rotor and tracking which player facing (body/legs facing not face facing) and rotate in that direction instead? it more efficiency too. I know it won't work in sidestep, is it not similar to the Omni-direction prototype showcase in vid?

    A larger treadmill, partnered with the same sort of software they use for those pneumatic-controlled flight simulators, would probably make this killer. Enough space so you get a sense of inertia, as well as giving the system enough time to pick up on quick changes of direction.

    I wonder if having the sensor at your front rather than your back might help with that forward tracking, as then you have more room infront of you for the tracking to kick in before you run into the rail, or the side of the treadmill. I might be wrong but hat makes more sense to me.

  59. Rama Coppolaro

    Rama CoppolaroMonth ago

    The max speed of this would have to be limited by the size of the treadmill and the latency. If you end up moving faster than the distance from the centre of the circle over the latency and suddenly stop running, the treadmill will not be able to adjust to the sudden stop before you bump into the railing. But that's not really an immediate issue they will run into soon so... ~∆~

    unfortunately there will never be a mass market audience because of the cost of materials and living room space. This makes software development that includes the treadmill very risky. Side stepping and jumping is also very dodgy. I dont want to retrain my mind for walking, I need to be safe in the real world. Motion sickness passes, im happy jogging on the spot for an RPG.

    This thing is amazing. The biggest problem it has to overcome is predicting your movements. It has to insinuate your movements. Once it is able to do that, you can run and make sudden changes in direction.

    Children's center of gravity is lower, weight and mass is lower, and i think importantly their stride is shorter. When he said they were not limited by size, I was questioning whether a moderately larger platform would help. Fantastic point with the independent foot movement. Think about standing, a lot of it is the resistance between your legs, NOW, when you lift one leg to walk, the whole platform shifts, the rug is literally being pulled out from under you. I wonder if the same mechanical system could be used for, instead of 360 walking, just independent belt movement one-direction for each leg.

    Hey TESTED, have you seen SmarterEveryDay’s video on this treadmill, he got to see inside the technology build.. However I think the KATVR seems like much better technology for walking & running & even sitting.. This treadmill here seems like a step back from what the guys at KATVR are doing..

  86. Storm Micheal

    SparkyMTB Completely different approaches to the problem. The treadmill is friction based. KATVR is frictionless. Kat is essentially being strapped up and on ice skates and constantly going on an incline.

    2:30 "Its patented so we can't get into too much detail" - but if its patented, all the information about it would be online somewhere, wouldn't it? Plus having it patented means that you could talk about it, and if anyone tries to copy it, you can take them to court since you own the patent. Having both the patent and making a video about it while NOT being able to talk about it makes this video pointless.

    They should use 3d tracking cameras around the perimeter to monitor the users movements (limbs etc) and perform momentum calculations on the fly to adjust motor response in addition to loaded map terrain data from whichever VR game is being played.. For that smaller rig it seems like it would be better to use a few lightweight bungee like harnesses that can retract into the base and are at your mid waist and glide around the perimeter of the base as you turn. That way they could use tension/torque calculations adjusted to your height and weight and it would feel less restrictive/wobbly when walking or running. That's if they increased the friction on the conveyor belts. Also! If they had a larger holo-deck sized treadmill they could do some neat things. MAGNETS. Magnetize the lower half of the belts and let them glide on rails over small magnetized balls suspended in a porous foam-like material between the belts and the base. You could easily increase the strength of the magnetism to increase resistance/friction so it feels like you're walking on an actual surface and not on a treadmill. Another advantage to this would be that you could shape the treadmill on the fly according to terrain data from any VR environment. You could use mini hydraulics attached underneath to pull/push sections of the tread up or down to match terrain data. Rough ideas but you get the idea. They're probably already working on something similar. I hadn't finished the video before I made this comment.. I was like 10 minutes in so when I restarted and heard him say "MAGNETS!" exactly as I had thought it. LOL
