Alienware VR Backpack PC: A take on hassle-free virtual reality experience
We already know VR headsets are a glimpse of what we all are going to be a part of in the future, but for now the technology is bulky. The reason being, lot of wires that need to be connected to a high performance PC. Alienware wants to free us from those shackles with their exciting VR Backpack PC. That means the VR hardware can be self-contained in the backpack and give you the freedom to carry it anywhere. Plus, that means less clutter of wires and all the hassle that comes with it.
No more tethering with bulky PC’s and lack of freedom for VR applications
Alienware collaborated with free-roam VR specialists, Zero Latency to achieve this tech-forward dream. The backpack looks very sleek and all the hardware is meticulously fitted inside it for pug-and-play VR experience. To power all the VR requirements, this unnamed PC uses Alienware Alpha PC’s hardware and AMD Radeon RX 480 video card.
This VR backpack PC was unveiled by AMD CEO Lisa Su at E3 PC Gaming Show, and it is still a working concept. Clearly, it will take some time before Alienware can make it into a commercially available product that can be paired with Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR or HTC Vive headsets.
