        Really cool, but I can already see some points they'll need to work out before this is commercially lucrative.
        First, of course, is the size. That thing is way too big to fit in the standard home.
        Second, is flexibility. The headset they were using here, the HTC Vive, costs easily around $1000 for the full setup, because of those extra cameras, but, for example, I have an Oculus Rift S, which doesn't have those cameras, it just uses sensors in the headset.

        Third is the delay between human motion and treadmill motion, which would come into play in fast-paced games where you'd be constantly running and dodging.
        And then, the cost. A lot of people will opt to forgo an omnidirectional treadmill like this if it costs several hundreds or thousands of dollars, as this sort of freedom of movement in VR games is currently just a commodity, and not at all required for the games that are out.

              That's why you strap your waste in the middle of the circle. This way you can walk any direction and the treadmill will process your in game position.

                                        Instead of making it motorized, make it loose enough for you to push it but tense enough to stop you when you stop

I would think falling over happens a lot when running around virtual world. Integrate synaptic tech like the Udrone from EEGSmart into the VR headset giving direct feedback to that position sensor and maybe you'll be able to stay a step ahead of the lag.

If you have two feet on the ground it wont move, if you lift one up it centers yourself and if you put one down again it stops. The Faster and further you put your feet (Running) the Faster the threadmill go's. that way it doesnt need to correct itself i think

                                                                                        I have a question. Obviously this setup works as long as you are travelling at 0, 90, 180, or 270 degrees in reference to either track, but what happens when you try to move 45, 135, 225, or 315 degrees? Basically any direction that is not parallel or perpendicular to the direction that tracks can move?
