And if your buddy and yourself ever find that 100 games aren’t enough, there’s a USB port that will let you store over 10,000 emulated games of your choosing, so you guys will never run out of games to play.

MSI Usher The Era Of Virtual Reality With Lighter And Slimmer Backpack PC

So, the Backpack PC we read about back in June is not what MSI has in mind about a wearable gaming computer. Lets just chuck that aside and meet MSI’s newest iteration of the soon-to-be-hot PC-on-your-back movement. Dubbed VR One (not to be confused with ZEISS VR One headset), MSI is quick to stake claim as “the world’s first-ever VR backpack.” With that statement, we take it as a full-functional, ready in-exchange for your hard-earned money product. However, pricing has yet to be disclosed, but it don’t take genius to figure out that a rig like such is going cost quite a fair amount. The backpack PC is currently on the show floor of Tokyo Game Show 2016, which opens its door to trade visitors today, on September 15.

MSI Show Off Backpack PC For Virtual Reality At Computex Taipei 2016

What’s the biggest thing this season? Virtual Reality. Well, not just Virtual Reality, but Virtual Reality backpacks. Why? Because nobody wants to be tripping over cables when there’s a VR headset glued to their heads and because VR should be mobile. As it turns out, HP isn’t the only company tinkering with the idea of equipping a PC on your back; MSI too. In fact, MSI has revealed ahead of the Computex Taipei this year their iteration, simple called Backpack PC. I know. The name is a little less than inspiring (unlike Omen X, which sounds pretty impressive) and it isn’t as sleek as Omen X, but hey, it’s a start, isn’t it?

HP Is Developing A VR Backpack That Will Cut The Cords In Virtual Reality

You know how some sci-fi depicts virtual reality? They simply put on a goggle and the actor magically appears in a VR world, but in reality, you will need more than just a goggle. Sure, it can be done, powered by a smartphone, but it is going to need more crunching power than a pocket-size computer if one wants to experience the real benefit of VR. This means, rigging the wearer to a real computer. While I suppose we are fine with that, it does mean cumbersome setup and tripping over cables are part of the deal. Well, not if HP can help. We heard the computer giant is developing something exciting. Something that will cut the cords, or at least minimize them, so you will get the best of both worlds: Virtual Reality and untethered. Continue reading HP Is Developing A VR Backpack That Will Cut The Cords In Virtual Reality
