Omniwalker treadmill admin | February 23, 2012 | Blogs | 2 Comments Omniwalker Treadmill was a work on-progress that I have been working on during my PhD studies. It consisted of ball bearings embedded on a huge dish shaped base. Below you can find some references on the papers published.

I am in the process of making a OBDP device myself for the purpose of experimenting with gesture recognition technology and virtual reality programming. Could I possibly give you a call or ask you some questions about your findings with the OBDP platform that you and your team built? (does it feel natural or unstable, do you think 15 degrees is the ideal inclination, etc.) Your other work looks very interesting as well. I look forward to hearing from you! Best regard, Jan admin August 30, 2013 Hi Jan, Sorry, I missed your earlier message. Yup, you can email me on minghadi at yahoo .com. A short answer to your inquiry, the platform is quite stable to be used for walking. However, I do feel that the model of the dish need to be improved and tested for different variations, may be bell shaped curvy kind of model. The problem though with going to this direction is the cost… Cheers, Add a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
