The concept of gaming accessories has been taken to a whole new level. We’ve covered the Oculus Rift before, and the virtual reality headset looks like an exciting evolution in the world of gaming, but other enterprising souls are looking to add VR to the lower portions of the body, as well.

A company called Virtuix is developing the Omni, which is essentially a multidirectional treadmill that its creators call “a natural motion interface for virtual reality applications”. The company posted a video showing someone playing Team Fortress 2 and using the Omni along with the Oculus Rift.
