Omni-directional treadmill

Imagine playing a FPS on this thing using a whole VR setup. Adds a completely new dynamic into the game when it comes to physical movement. Let's see someone bunnyhop on this thing!

:D

Yeah, I got a 275 on my last PT test - maxed push-ups, one short of maxing sit-ups, and my run was ok (2 miles in 15 min, which is slow for infantry in general, but decent for my old ass w/ a bum left knee).

Now, lets talk cost of one of these things... :roll:

For my age group? 78 (correct form) within 2 min in each event. I'll knock out 50 in the first 45-60 seconds, then do small sets with pauses in between to fight the fatigue for the last min.

There's a kid in my platoon who did 126 correct pushups in 2 min.
