KATVR has today announced the kickstarter campaign for KAT WALK is now live. KAT WALK is a new omni-directional treadmill for virtual reality that has been designed to be as unrestrictive as possible , giving the user 360 degrees of continuous movement within a small space.
It is compatible with virtual reality headset such as Oculus Rift.
Unlike other omni-directional treadmills the Kat Walk doesn’t have a ring around the waist which can feel restrictive, instead it has an over-head support with a suspended harness that can hold up to 308lbs (140kg) in weight. Without a ring or column surrounding you, it allows you to chop, wave, pick, beat, kick, run sharply, swing your arms naturally or put your hands to rest down by your sides, getting closer to a natural walk posture.
