KAT Walk C Personal VR Treadmill
KAT VR calls its forthcoming KAT Walk C "the world's first personal VR Omni-Directional Treadmill." If you're not a gamer and that makes no sense to you, yep, sounds about right. The Kat Walk C is a gamer-designed gadget made especially for fellow gamers, giving users of any major VR headset in circulation the ability to move 360 degrees during play, and in a full range of natural motions. Within minimal IRL space. And without falling off, running into things, or whacking your head on a protruding piece of furniture and knocking yourself out cold.
The Kat Walk C apparatus consists of a 7.4 square foot dish base, surrounding guardrails, and a (non-restrictive) human harness to preclude the aforementioned physical mishaps. During gameplay, treadmill users also wear included KAT VR dedicated footwear. The package allows players to drop into VR-enabled games and:
- Turn around safely & smoothly.
- Walk, run, and stop with no delay.
- Lean forward and pick up items.
- Move backward.
