The Cyberinth Virtualizer, which launched its Kickstarter campaign a little more than a week ago, has reached its $250,000 goal with 26 days left in the campaign.

The $700 device is designed to be used in combination with a virtual reality headset such as the Oculus Rift, and allows users to walk, run, crouch, jump and even sit down. Unlike its closest competitor, the Virtuix Omni, the Cyberinth Virtualizer does not required special shoes because it uses a flat, low-friction surface that works with regular socks.
