What Houzz contributors are saying:

Virtual-reality gaming headsets like Oculus Rift will usher in a new world of gaming products for homes. One of the first such devices is a kind of hybrid between gaming gear and exercise equipment. Called the Omni treadmill, from a start-up called Virtuix, the game is designed to let the player walk, run, turn around, jump and do other movements that are actually registered in game play. The “treadmill” itself has no moving parts, just a slippery, curved surface. Special shoes are worn by the gamer; they're designed to slice across the surface while moving in straight lines, thanks to hard plastic grooves on them. The product is still in the crowd-sourced funding phase on Kickstarter, although the company has already raised far more than it set out to. The bigger issue is that virtual-reality gaming will usher in lots of big products like this for game-play-environment simulation. That’s yet another reason why video gaming will demand its own dedicated space in the house and away from the TV.
