I'm interested to see how folks actually use this, bumping into walls and running in place is not my idea of fun.

Like any VR without a treadmill, they won't require you to run in place, nor will you ever bump into walls.

But if you are interested, they do have round treadmills and those work pretty well. e.g the Omni treadmill: http://www.virtuix.com/

It'll be interesting when some company actually releases a piece of hardware, rather than all these dev kits we've seen for the past 3 years.

Well, almost 4 years later and I haven't seen any homes with VR rooms.
