VIDEO: Oculus Rift + omnidirectional treadmill = the future of gaming?

If immersion is your currency, then it’s hard to imagine a richer setup than this.

The video below depicts users playing Valve’s Team Fortress 2 using touted virtual reality headset Oculus Rift, a compatible gun controller and a prototype Virtuix Omni omnidirectional treadmill which, as the name suggests, allows users to walk or run in any direction and have this recreated in game.

The Virtuix Omni VR Treadmill, meanwhile, will soon be hitting Kickstarter.
