NEWS: HP's latest PC is a backpack

Now that is mobile computing.

The above image is of the forthcoming HP Z VR Backpack PC, a computer designed to be worn on your back. Why? Surely if you need to send a quick email while on the train you can use your phone, right? Well, the HP Z is a computer created specifically for tether-free virtual reality experiences, when used in conjunction with a VR headset and controllers.



Despite weighing only 10lbs, the Hp Z VR Backpack PC is compatible with both the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift, and posseses 32GB RAM, and a Nvidia Quadro P5200 graphics processor with another 16GB of RAM in itself. Using it means there is no need to be wired to a desktop PC while in a VR world, freeing up your movements and making the experience safer.


HP claim it is the most powerful VR PC ever made, but if you feel having to wear it all the time is a bit dull, the PC also comes with a desktop dock, allowing you to use it as a regular (and very powerful) computer. However, for the pleasure of doing all this, you'll first have to part with $3299 come September. Oh.
