Running Amok in GTA V with an Oculus Rift, a Virtuix Omni and VorpX


What do you get when you piece together a Virtuix Omni VR treadmill, a DK2, and (with help from vorpX) a AAA title like GTA V? Madness. Pure madness.

Stealing a car is wrong. Shooting innocent bystanders in the face, now that’s downright egregious. But in the beautifully realistic Grand Theft Auto V, a title that just released for PC last week, you can now get away with all the virtual crimes your evil little heart desires—and with the help of a VR treadmill and vorpX, a suite of 3D drivers for Oculus Rift that lets you play previously unsupported titles, you can do your dastardly deeds running around in VR.

Buy VorpX and Support Road to VR

The Virtuix Omni (the VR treadmill in the video) has yet to ship (although will do soon) , the company is giddy to show off the potential of the device for when the market gears up to support VR natively. They’ve also shown their VR treadmill working with Battlefield 4Minecraft, and with the Gear VR version of Dreadhalls.
