Omnidirectional treadmill turns Skyrim into a walking experience

New, 14 comments

A new video from omnidirectional treadmill creator Cyberith shows off how its latest device, the Virtualizer, can be paired with the Oculus Rift for a more immersive experience.

In the video above, Cyberith uses the Virtualizer in tandem with virtual reality headset Oculus Rift and Wii remotes to explore The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim. The device is similar to Virtuix's omni treadmill, which is expected to ship in March. According to the Virtualizer's website, users are free to run or walk backward and forward, as well as crouch, jump and sit. Users can adjust the device to fit their body height and don't require special shoes to move around.

You can view videos of the Virtualizer paired with games such as Arma 3 and Grand Theft Auto 4 on its website.
