      @J.Grewe I understand your point about the timing. Regarding the delays though, I can say that having now tried the consumer Omni as well as last year's prototype, we will all be better off thanks to the extra time and money spent developing it. As I mentioned in my impressions thread here: http://forum.virtuix.com/discussion/2263/my-impression-of-the-consumer-virtuix-omni the improvements are more than cosmetic. Also I have updated my blog on www.crimsonshards.com for those who are following.

      Even if this campaign doesn't take away any resources from the main objective (finally shipping the Omni), the smart thing would have been to wait with the campaign until that point has been reached. Noone likes to have to wait just because of some marketing stunt (CES), and then be fed some shallow "hey look, at this crazy stuff over here! ARG! cool, right?".
      If it's done, ship it.

      Sorry for those harsh words, but i'm starting to get fed up by more and more projects breaking their ETAs. A couple of months i understandable, but a whole year or even more? Not cool.

      Hey guys !

      Please do not bother too much with the angry comments...
      Some people cannot take a joke.

      Great to know the final Omni is ready !
      And yes, looking forward to seeing the final product, and even more of receiving it.

      Thants Suteki to give the comunity something to have fun with, for the people that enjoy this kind of fun.

      Happy new year to you all !

      Hey everyone, just to clarify: I set up the Facebook page (and crimsonshards.com) so no need to worry that Virtuix is being distracted. I only launched it recently so you're all welcome to get involved if you like - I'd be glad to have you aboard. I honestly don't know where this is going yet, so expect long periods of silence, red herrings, twists, loose ends, and hopefully a satisfying conclusion, or maybe the extinction of mankind? As Jan says, feel free to ignore if it's not your thing.

      Is this a lead in to the game that will launch with the omni perhaps?

      Not really a fan of being lied to in the name of "marketing", even if it is as painfully obviously fake as this.
      Did anyone at Virtuix really expect this to go down all that well?

      The CEO of the company asks for help solving someones murder, yes I read the whole thing. Waste of time.

      Hi Al and others, this developing story line is not taking away any time and resources from our top priority of shipping out all Omnis to our backers asap. We are closer than ever and are working around the clock. We will unveil our final product next week and believe you will be impressed. If you do not appreciate the Doc V developments, please feel free to ignore. I cannot thank you enough for your continued support.

      Best regards,
      Jan

      WTF???

      Is that another heads up excuse to delay further?

      ...also if you're trying to make a (fun) plot as @Kemic mentioned below, good luck, but I think it's hard to have fun with it when Omni is so late!

    11. Amir Soltani on

      Guy, guys... what's up? are you for real? I ask myself that... Even my 10 yr old daughter who plays minecraft all day and watches every animated film ever made can tell that this is low-budget fake! The video glitches, the green screen background, it's like a cheap B-movie (special effects are from footage stocks that you can buy/download). Doc V?!? I'm from Cambridge University, no one waste their time here with fiction, give us Omni please as you promised as I need it for my work and leave the lunatics be that are desparate for attention and have all the time to make bad clips like this.

      I had a good laugh with this update but really, I'm waiting for our 2 omnies!

      How about instead of trying to create hype, you do it by communicating with your backers and build loyalty. An update every other month or so was entirely foolish, and now you're trying to pull some PR-fake-hack-crap after the whole Sony thing. Even this shows a lack of effort. Yea, just keep phoning it in guys.

    13. Jan Grewe on

      If you're now starting ARG, you're laying it on too thick. Way too obvious, that thread on the forum.
      I'd also rather see my funds invested in the device and having it shipped, than into some background story. I want to use it for my own stories (games).

      It's definitely not real, but hey, lets enjoy the ride!

      Nothing has made me worry more that my money went into a black hole more than this "update"

      Any news on when shipping will start...?

      Estimated delivery: Jan 2014
      Ships anywhere in the world

      >_>

    16. Kemic on

      This feels like some sort of plot lead-up for the game they're making to show off what the Omni can really do...

    17. Alex Kalogeropoulos on

      I'm so confused right now.
