How about a nice walk...a Virtual walk?

Imagine the possibility of you, physically walking through a virtual forest, meadow, city or any landscape and in any direction?!
Hmm...playing a game and getting your exercise too! O0

Oh yeah...buckle up Dorothy because it's coming.

Here is a look at the Infinadeck Omnidirectional Treadmill.

Not the first time I have seen something like this. I admire the technology, but it's not going to fit in my house  :D

It would be nice down the local arcade though or do they not exist anymore. I would certainly like to have a play with one.

Yeah, imagine a place with a room the size of a school gymnasium filled with these treadmills. You and a dozen of your close friends join forces to have a go at an opposing team of real people, each with their virtual gear.

At the end of the skirmish, everyone would be sweaty and exhausted mentally and physically!! O0

Imagine the fun!
