I have seen this paper about the Omnidirectional Treadmill With CAD model ( with tiny rollers on it):

enter image description here

Which compered its prototype with infinadeck as shown below:

enter image description here

but don't see those roller in infinadeck as seen here:

enter image description here

So does the rollers in infinadeck (more zoomed video) are so small that can not be seen or that company use another mechanism for this device, for example like this: enter image description here

Update:

By seeing this video i guess Thanks, infinadeck don't have tiny rollers and only have the chain show in the CAD model of paper like this:

enter image description here

But i don't know i am right?!

Thanks.

  • $\begingroup$ Why do you assume that the final product put on the market has to be the same as the, or a, prototype? Prototypes are often built to test specific parts or functions and the results may drive the form of the final product. $\endgroup$ – Solar Mike Aug 5 '20 at 5:52

The infinadeck is literally a treadmill made of treadmills. The sideways motion works in the same way as a regular treadmill with belts stretched over rollers and driven by a motor. See https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=fvu5FxKuqdQ for more details
