This HP Omen Wireless Mouse Is Charged Wirelessly By Its Mousepad

During the HP Gaming Festival in Beijing on Tuesday, HP also introduce a pair of interesting gadgets, a wireless mouse called Omen Photon and mousepad called Omen Outpost. Wait. A mousepad isn’t a gadget, is it? Well, it is in the case of Outpost Mousepad because, it is also a Qi wireless charging pad. And if you are guessing that the mouse charges via the mousepad, you are absolutely right. Quite a brilliant combo, if you ask me.

HP Introduced World’s First Dual-screen Gaming Laptop

While Lenovo envisioned a PC/laptop hybrid that folds, HP announced a gaming laptop that has a feature that appears to be useless, but yet so useful at the same time. Meet the HP Omen X 2S, the world’s first dual-screen gaming laptop. Wait a minute… it is not the world’s first, is it? OK. Maybe it kind of is because, in earlier Razer models, the display was strictly for keys whereas Omen X 2S is literally a smartphone-size display that lets you do a bunch of things.

HP Omen X VR Backpack Is Finally A Reality, But At A Cost Of An Arm Or A Leg

I am not going lie. I did not follow closely with the upcoming ‘trend’ of virtual reality backpack and therefore, it now comes as a surprise to me that the HP’s virtual reality backpack, dubbed Omen X, has not been shipped until today. OK. Technically speaking, it is not shipping today because, at the time of this writing, both the Omen X Compact Desktop PC P1000-010, which cost a grand $2,499.99, and the $499.99 Omen X Desktop VR Backpack, which the former will slip into to turn a regular desktop PC into a VR backpack, are listed as “Out of Stock.” Continue reading HP Omen X VR Backpack Is Finally A Reality, But At A Cost Of An Arm Or A Leg

HP Sprocket Photo Printer Prints On ZINK Photo Paper, Cost Just $130

HP is no stranger to making printers which kind of surprises us that the computer hardware maker is not actively covering all matter of prints. Ok, may it has. Anyways, the HP Sprocket you see here is the company’s latest portable printer that produces 2 by 3 inches photos, complete with a peel-and-stick back to appease the ‘millennials’. Wait. Do we even print anything other than school and work documents these days? Maybe we do. Personally, I am not fond of printing anything, much less photos. Mainly because I am super lazy and the thought of printing using the multifunction printer, which is located several feet away from me, gives me the cringe. Yes. I am beyond lazy. I rather spend the energy washing cups for my next shot of caffeine, really. Continue reading HP Sprocket Photo Printer Prints On ZINK Photo Paper, Cost Just $130

HP Pavilion Wave & Elite Slice Proves PC Makers Are Getting More Innovative

For decades, PC makers haven’t been thinking out-of-the-box, like literally. Over the years, desktop computers and rectangular chassis are synonymous. That’s until Mac Pro came along with its shiny, gleaming cylindrical look. It broke the tradition which previously only available to PC customizers. A few years on, MSI also challenge the status quo and soon after, HP took the leap too with not one but two desktop computers, HP Pavilion Wave and HP Elite Slice, respectively. The former took a radical approach by taking on a triangular tower form that is 85 percent smaller than conventional towers and with the fabric woven skin, it certainly looks more like a speaker you would expect from the likes of B&O, and for good reason; its audio is powered by B&O PLAY.

The World’s Thinnest Laptop From HP Measures An Incredible 10.4mm Thin

While most laptop makers do strive to keep their laptop’s profile down, you have to acknowledge that Apple is the only one in the how-thin-a-laptop-can-go race. But it looks like HP too, is going all out business when it comes to profile thickness, or in this case, thinnest. The PC maker’s 13.3-inch Spectre laptop is officially the world’s thinnest laptop at this moment and it is also the thinnest laptop to roll out of HP. Measuring a wafer thin 10.4 mm, the Spectre is significantly thinner than 11-inch MacBook Air and even beating the slimmest laptop Apple has to offer, the 12-inch MacBook. But do the users really care how thin their laptop are? Continue reading The World’s Thinnest Laptop From HP Measures An Incredible 10.4mm Thin

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

This Chunky Box is Hewlett-Packard’s Vision of 3D Printer

Before you get too excited about this inkjet-looking 3D printer from HP, you’ve to know this is definitely not for your home desk top. Maybe someday it will, but for now, HP’s first 3D printer, known as Multi Jet Fusion, is strictly geared towards manufacturing businesses. It was actually announced over a week ago with the new-age blended reality desktop PC, Sprout. Anyway, with the Multi Jet Fusion, HP aims to introduce a new era of manufacturing by delivering high quality and faster product at a lower cost (keeping in mind, it’s for commercial applications). Building on HP Thermal Inkjet technology, the Multi Jet Fusion features a unique synchronous architecture that uses multiple chemical agents to, in HP own words, “resolve the fundamental limitations of current 3D printing systems.” The latter is said to enable Multi Jet Fusion to print at a speed that’s ten times faster than conventional manufacturing techniques.

HP Introduces 3D-scanning PC with Projected Second Screen, Heralds the New Era of Computing

HP used to be the brand name that leads the way in innovations, but somewhere along the 75 years in existence, they seem to have lost it. Now, it is set to get back on the innovation track, starting with this futuristic 3D-scanning PC with second projected screen called Sprout. Even the product name is a huge departure from the company’s usual naming practices, but beyond namesake, it is essentially a Windows 8 desktop PC (Windows 8.1 64, to be precise) that boast a dual-screen creative console with a built-in projector that will cast a second screen on a mousepad-like surface, a touch-enabled display and the said 3D scanner. Sprout falls under HP’s Blended Reality ecosystem with the aim to offer an advanced desktop computer with “immersive, natural user interface” that will provide users with a whole new computing experience.
