    Can it jump and hold you like for free falling that would be awesome and immersive

    What if they make a giant mouse ball for you to walk or run on.

    If you guy want to build an omnidirectional treadmill check me up :) Now 3 years i develop solutions for ODT. Manual, motorized, affordable or expensive solutions. Offer my work for free. If interested please contact me at vrium@outlook.fr

    What is differentiated the Infinadeck (active OT) from other OT, exept the motor, the cost and size... First this is the only only true omnidirectionnal floor ! Then the floor moves, not the feet above the floor compare to Omni, cyberith, Kat VR. So the feet is stable on the floor. The walk is easy and natural...BUT the fact that it is the motor, that makes the floor move, ruine the convenient (stability and natural walking ) of this omnidirectionnal floor ! Reactivity is a big problem... It will be interresting to make a passive Infinadeck version, Without motor i mean. That would be the user that will make the floor move. User would be strapped, like with the Omni. Why do this, because it would bring much stability to the infinadeck. The user himself making, the floor move, so reactivity would be 1 to 1. It would be like adding stability and natural walking to the Omni. The size cause of the starp could be reduced. Smaller lighter and motor less, the cost too. But still, not everybody can have a treadmill at home. We have to find another solution, smaller, cheaper consummer friendly. Maybe we have to think wearable solution, i mean passive Infinadeck shoes ! Passive infinadeck shoes would keep the stability faculty of infinadeck. Cause infinadeck just can take one direction at a time, the feet would be stable while the shoes would be rolling. The user would have to be strapped to walk in place or walk inside a concave shape.

    yall look like nuds

    I feel bad for Infinadeck because the device looks like it keeps stuttering when really the guy testing it out can't walk properly XD

    you need sensors in the shoes with an algorithm to determine direction from weight balance...the harness can remain but it should only be a harness. Also the bands need to be smaller.

    Looks expensive and it doesn't look like it functions great either.

  14. Jason Wilkins

    they need to figure out the problem where just leaning makes the device move

    +Dennis Weick But it would make it real. ;) these are too expensive for me to buy and put in a VR arcade. Or are they?

  16. Dennis Weick

    Dennis Weick2 years ago

    +Jason Wilkins they would have to put the sensor thing at their ankles. I think this would be pretty annoying and even looking more stupid than it already is. :D

    The FAT dude makes the device look bad.

    with the belted waist, you might as well just have the far friendlier omni, or cyberyth(or whatever it's called)

    Very impressive, still has a long way to go before it is small and cheap enough for all of us to have it in our house, but the basics, the way it actually works, is brilliant.

    15 years my friend, 15 years. Then probably another 5 for companies to create competition for the innovative ones to spend more money on cutting costs on manufacturing. so 20 all up is what i feel would be more plausible. that's not too bad for anyone who is 10-35 years of age.

    +Rene Kunnskap I like that it uses a rotating ring suspended above you as the harness so that it's less obtrusive than the others. Unfortunately though it still has that same weird feeling shuffling action for the locomotion like the others.

    +Blu_Haze What do you think about the KAT WALK - KATVR? They have taken the best from both the virtualizer and omni to looks of it, and it's pretty affordable. The void looks to have a very static environment, but probably have several physical rooms to dive into. Looks interesting though.

    +xXYannuschXx I hope you realize that this "brilliant idea" has been around for well over a decade now and we're still not realistically any closer to making this practical. There are videos of omnidirectional treadmills on MReporter from 2007 that were already functionally better than Infinadeck.

    +Blu_Haze I hope you realize that this thing is still a prototype. The main part is the treadmill, which already works fine and is a brilliant idea at how to make a omni directional treadmill. They just need to figure out how to better detect movement. My idea: they should use IR cams and tracking points on the shoes and hip.

    Wouldn't this be best if it was round?

    15 years, 20 if you want them to be cheap enough too, then again US economy could get pretty bad by then. You never know.

    You mean like if you took an elastic sphere and stretched it around a ring?

    +Black Fang it would be flat though. Well, not flat obviously but a thin rounded cylinder.

    good work. all platform concepts without moving parts are only reasonable if they are cheap. but they are not.
