They are a group of fifty VR enthusiasts and industry professionals, each selected to receive a Virtuix Omni from the first production run. Among them you will find those who helped fund its development through the crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter. They have undertaken to test the treadmill and report their findings. Any anomalies they uncover during the course of the Pathfinder program will be investigated and addressed. Upon the completion of this mission, the Omni will enter full production and be shipped to thousands of backers and pre-order customers around the world.
In the meantime, some will champion 'Active VR' experiences, and promote the virtues of the Omni, which are three-fold: enhancing immersion, eliminating simulator sickness, and improving our physical condition. With only a few months remaining ahead of the launch of the first consumer head-mounted displays, pathfinders can prove to an increasingly disheartened community that it is possible to achieve the dream of virtual reality. Limitless first-person exploration is finally here, and it will take us to fantastical realms beyond our imagination.
