Several large manufacturers announced computers in the form of a shoulder bag with the support of popular virtual reality sets. In such an uncomplicated way, the problem of dangling wires connecting the VR-helmet and the PC was solved. As it turned out recently, such computers will be used not only for video games, but also in education, training of personnel and even in the military sphere.
HP introduced a new computer Z VR Backpack, made in a backpack format. This PC can in fact be carried behind your back like a briefcase, and it is trained to work with virtual reality and allows you to connect the appropriate helmets.
The manufacturer created the computer in such a way that it was protected from dust and moisture and met all the requirements of the military to the training equipment. Inside the rugged backpack is a four-core Intel Core i7-7820HQ processor with vPro technology support and NVIDIA Quadro P5200 graphics accelerator with 16 gigabytes of video memory. The computer is perfectly compatible with the HTC Vive headset, but also supports the Oculus Rift helmet. The backpack is equipped with two batteries: main and standby. As soon as the main battery is discharged, it can be replaced with a fully charged one, while the backup battery will allow the system to remain active. The computer has Bluetooth 4.2 and Wi-Fi 802.11ac modules, a gigabit network card, USB 3.0 ports and USB-C and miniDP 1.3 and HDMI 2.0 output.
