October 14, 2012 :
Working for several years on a low cost omnidirectional treadmill.
The hardest thing has been to get the right people to look at it.

Several goals in mind :
- inexpensive to build
- capable of higher speeds (greater than 8 mph)
- sized to fit a normal room height (a person 6'4" could use it in a room 96" high)
- use standard 120V outlets

Designed to allow the user to walk, run or even crawl while simulated inertia.
Dimensions : about 7' square and 20" high.

When at full speed with the acceleration turned up, t's capable of reversing directions in about 2 seconds.
A lighter weight version now in the works will reduce that number to less than one or faster than a human can.

I am hoping but not guaranteeing the cost will be under $4k (hopefully 3) in mass production and weigh 3 to 400 lbs. (It will be able to be be disassembled for transportation.)
