      Hi Fawaz, thank you for you questions. You can jump on the Omni (just jump) but not crouch (just push a button). You need Omni shoes to use the Omni - your personal shoes will be too frictionous.

      Best regards,

      Hi,

      @Virtuix (1) Does the Omni allow for siting, crouch, and jumping?
      so far there is no video of the new design that shows that.
      not even at Cnet video
      check the video at 4:25 (Omni demonstration)

      (2) Can I use my personal shoes with the attached IMU PODs ?
      thanks.

      Hi all,

      Thank you for your questions and compliments. We are at CES, so apologies for the delayed response.

      @ Ryan - the "Deck" is indeed detachable and has two main functions: 1) add structural stability to the Omni to prevent any form of wobbling, and 2) provide a safe way to get in/out of the Omni (the Deck has an anti-slip surface).

      @ Daniel - we are good friends with Sixense and will make sure both our devices and SDKs work seamlessly together.

      Best regards,
      Jan

      @Chris Turner
      The gun controller used by Virtuix is a Cabela Top Shot Elite for XBOX 360 with usb wireless adapter for pc.

      Try VorpX, Tridef3D and Vireio Perception for converting games to Rift playable. Personally I use Tridef, but a lot of people like VorpX best.

      @Virtuix - What Gun controller do you recommend for use with Omni? (while I wait for STEM to eventually ship). Also, how are you playing such games with the Oculus? I have a DK2 and almost no games work with it.

    6. Kilian Steenman on

      Thnx for the response. Looking forward to it!

      @Virtuix Is the new 'step' piece detachable? Seems like a larger footprint now.

      I'm really impressed with how far the Omni has come, it seems Virtuix has used all of it's funding in the most effective ways possible to deliver a strikingly good product. I could not have anticipated it being this good when I backed.

      The PODs are great news, I tried to catch latency in that COD video (I could notice it in all the others) but it really seemed instantaneous, well done.

      Looking forward to seeing more footage of and reactions to the Omni as CES progresses, I wish I could be there.

      Nice update.

      Will the Omni work together with the Sixense SDK out of the box, or what alternatives are there to implement these together from a developer standpoint?

      Also, does the magnetic tracking on the omni interfere with the magnetic field tracking on the stem, and can the two be used together?

      Thanks

      Thanks for the update. I saw it first on the website (via the mail link) and commented there about the inability to scroll the page. Figured I'd post here too in case you don't read that comment.

      Hi Alden, we have good news for you: from a legal perspective, we can't ship Omnis without the upper support structure (safety reasons), so all DIY backers will simply get a full Omni (feel free to store away the upper structure and build your own!).

      Hi Kenny, one of our demo pros at CES is 6'3" tall, and a second one is 6'4" tall. Your height will not be a problem for the Omni.

      Hi Kerry, we are finalizing that information in the coming weeks.

      Hi Kilian, our IMU PODs use custom sensor fusion algorithms with magnetic anomaly correction that eliminate orientation drift. (if you look to achieve accurate positional tracking, then magnetic tracking with the STEM would indeed be better)

      Best regards,
      Jan

      Looks nice. But I am a bit concerned about the drift of the POD, wish you guys told us earlier that you changed the tracking (I've been asking about the SDK a lot). I'll probably just use the STEM for accurate tracking.

      Also it looks like the support structure is getting in the way a lot more in this final version when looking at the CoD footage.

    13. Kerry Potts on

      Love the final look! Any updates on the finalized pick up locations to possibly save on shipping? Thanks!

    14. John Gwinner on

      I got my AntVR, now I just need the Omni! :) Looking forward to it. Hope the shoes fit :( heh.

    15. Kenny Nierwienski on

      I really like how the final design looks and am excited to hear about the PODs but I'm very worried about the smaller base. I'm 6'2" and wear a size 15 shoe so my long legs and big feet need room to move but as seen in your Advanced Warfare video the demonstrators feet hit the several times, hard enough to move those gray bits.

      How tall is the guy in the video and should I be worried about the functionality of my Omni? Your website says it supports up to 6'5" but is that only accounting for height in regards to the ring? Please tell me you took into account the larger stride of taller people!

      As someone in the DIY OMNI group, I'm curious to see how that will turn out for us. Still, I'm excited, let's get some home VR going!
