Virtuix, the studio behind the upcoming Omni natural motion treadmill for virtual reality devices, has released a demo of the hardware working alongside the Oculus Rift 3D visor.

The Omni treadmill allows users to essentially run on the spot in any direction, and have a video game pick up the movements and replicate them.

The above video released by Virtuix shows the hardware being used in unison with the Oculus Rift headset, with Valve's Team Fortress 2 as an example of what the combination can potentially be utilized for.

Although the Omni isn't yet available to the public, Virtuix says that a Kickstarter campaign is due to launch sometime in the near future.

The company says that the treadmill hardware will be "affordable for household consumers." More information can be found on the official website.
