Add the Omni: Move and you got the full experience.

To be fair to the Omni the thought of jogging through Skyrim for your workout is pretty damn cool.

Well the ARAIG didn't get funded but was curious to see how the Omni was doing and its at $969,000 out of its $150,000 goal - with 20 days to go still. It looked neat but I didn't figure it would get funded anywhere near that level.

I still think its a pretty cool idea to do a workout by running through Skyrim. I can see modders creating different runs you can do throughout the world too. But watching these videos it seems like there's a serious issue with the inability to back up or strafe in FPS. Basically it looks like you always have to be moving forward. Which means you're kinda screwed for any FPS online play where you would likely get the most exercise.

If I ever got an Oculus Rift I could see considering the Omni at some point depending on the price ($300-$350 range might be acceptable).
