John, carpets are a no-go, since it's powered by USB only. We mention 'best used on smooth, hard floors' in the KS write-up and on our website, but you have to read through the text; sorry if you were mis-led! Our next platform we're prototyping now has 4 large DC motors, 4.5" wheels and a 4000mAh battery. It WILL work on carpet
Does not work on medium to deep pile carpet, not what I expected.
I love my Oculus!
