Hey guy(s) and gal(s),
It’s been quite a while since anyone other than Jay-Rey has posted anything, so I’ve decided to end my extended vacation and drop some knowledge on you. A couple days ago I came across this awesome video of the Virtuix Omni, a virtual reality apparatus reminiscent of Gamer(sans Michael C. Hall’s dance . sadface).
Equipped with a headpiece and gun controller(WARNING: not accurate representations, watch the damn video), some army lookin’ dude shoots some Terrorist skulls in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Now, I play a lot of CSGO, and I can tell you for a fact there is no way you’ll hang with the big boys walking on a treadmill that has the diameter of a Bosu Ball(great workout, by the way). Strafing is half the battle in CS:GO. However, I can easily see the Virtuix Omni being a huge hit in arcades or in the game room of The Wolf of Wall Street’s third yacht. Also, FPS_Doug would love this. BOOM! HEADSHOT!
Here’s what I think. What do you think? Is this a time and money sink or a stepping stone into the glorious world of Ready Player One?
