Is HP’s $3.3K ‘Backpack’ Computer The Future of Virtual Reality?

Virtual reality tech is advancing by leaps and bounds, and it seems that HP is improving their VR game. They’ve just introduced their Z VR Backpack computer that makes virtual reality gaming much less clumsy, and far more involving.

Gone are the days of navigating cables; in place of all the mucky-muck is a military-grade backpack that makes the VR unit a wearable module. At just 10.25 lb, the mesh designed backpack can be worn comfortably, and operated easily, which helps to limit distractions.

Pro gamers will be able to escape more convincingly with HP’s updated materials and hardware. The VR’s silicon includes an Intel Core i7 vPro processor, a NVIDIA Quadro P5200 graphics processor with 16 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of DDR4 RAM.

The Z VR backpack includes a bevy of ports: HDMI 2.0, Mini-DP 1.3, a combo audio jack, a power jack for the VR headset, and two USB 3.0. There are two additional USB 3.0 ports on the side as well.

HP’s Z VR Backpack is available for $3,299.
