Such negativity. Such authority. Are you a shill for VirtuSphere? You don't have to niggle about a title to understand that being able to walk freely in cyberspace is a very important development. The omni-directional treadmill (ODT) allows you to do this on a FLAT surface. With the VirtuSphere, you are walking in a bowl. Perhaps this is your normal mode of operation.

Solutions to natural navigation are just beginning to appear. VirtuSphere is one. Why attempt to negate other efforts?

Every solution has its pros and cons. The ODT is flat, not a bowl, and unlike the VirtuSphere, it has no inertial residue. VirtuSphere is simpler, lower cost, and commercially available.

Chill.
