Omnidirectional Treadmill

Omnidirectional treadmill is the descriptive name for a tradmill which rather than allowing simple, one-directional movement, allows and records movement in almost any direction physically possible.

Such devices are also called 6DOF as they allow forwards-backwards, right-left, up-down, pitch, yaw, and roll.

Recent examples include the VirtuSphere, and circular floor.
