Kinect is actually a motion controller for Xbox console which cannot track 3D movements in physical space. Oculus Rift is a VR head-mount display which gives a VR of a very large display with 7inch screen.

Omni allow us to naturally move with our feet to control movement controls in gaming instead of just sitting and playing with a keyboard, mouse or a controller. This is the next level of futuristic gaming experience.

Omni can track movements like walking, running, crouching and strafing. Omni also requires Oculus Rift, VR head-mount to give completely immerse VR experience, a controller and a PC for interfacing all these devices. The project is currently under funding.
