When I first checked out the Virtuix Omni at CES 2015, I was intrigued, but my wallet stayed firmly in my pocket.
The Virtuix Omni is just not practical for the average gamer or even like myself, a self-confessed gadget freak. It may be perfect for the likes of Dave & Busters and indeed hardcore VR Games or the 1% with Mansions.
If you are one of those target groups and you backed Virtuix when they were on Kickstarter, then you are in luck. Your BIG box will be arriving soon.
For those who wish to purchase a retail Virtuix Omni, you can still pre-order the Virtuix Omni direct from their site for $699 (+$200 US Shipping). The pre-order units will start to ship after the Kickstarter units. Before you order, I suggest you review the shipping rates, which do reflect the size and weight of these units.
Virtuix Omni Domestic shipping:
Domestic shipping costs will be $200 for doorstep delivery of the standard Omni. Additional accessories will increase the shipping costs.

Virtuix Omni International shipping:
If you are buying an Omni internationally, you must take shipping costs and VAT into consideration (not included in the list price). International shipping is complicated, and can be costly depending on where you live. You need to verify and add your country’s import duties and VAT, if applicable.
