Multi-Directional Treadmill Lets Gamers Roam Endlessly In Virtual Reality
The Infinadeck is creating a new kind of AR experience.
Infinadeck is a virtual reality platform based on an omni-directional treadmill that allows the user to walk infinitely in any direction. Its creators are describing the platform as the world's first affordable omni-directional treadmill and “the missing link making it now possible to have a true Holodeck experience.”
The Infinadeck, being an omni-directional treadmill, reacts to the movement of the user to keep them in the middle of the device no matter what direction they are going in. The platform, therefore, allows 360 degrees of movement. The device uses a combination of belt movement and a movable platform that can turn in a perpendicular direction and keeps the user in one place, at the center of the treadmill.
