This is a demonstration of the Infinadeck, the world’s first treadmill that allows you to run in any directions.
This patented device allows users to naturally walk and run in any direction and, when paired with a VR headset, creates a personal holodeck experience that will allow users to take a stroll through vast, immersive new worlds.
The new treadmill is only 4.4 ft by 5.6 ft (1.3 m x 1.7 m) and weighs in at a reasonable 500 lbs (225 kg).
The machine stands a mere 16 in (.4 m) off the ground and is surprisingly quiet for such a powerful machine.
The Infinadeck is powered by two motors.
One moves the platform like a regular treadmill and the other moves the belt in the perpendicular direction.
The Infinadeck is designed for customers looking for precision, high-end, controlled omnidirectional walking solutions.
George’s team has also equipped the Infinadeck with a customizable support system that straps comfortably around the user’s waist and keeps them secured.
As the user walks forward, the treadmill moves in the opposite direction to keep them in the middle of the platform.
That same movement can then, when paired with a VR headset, give the user the impression that they are walking naturally through a virtual environment.
Infinadeck plans to make these treadmills available to strategic business partners, and expects to produce a lower priced consumer model in the near future.
