HP Launches Wearable VR/PC

Hewlett-Packard has joined the virtual reality push with a wearable PC – but says it’s aimed at enterprise customers rather than gamers.

The HP Z VR Backpack comes with a dock that HP says “lets digital creators quickly transition back and forth between a high-powered desktop for content design and a wearable VR PC to validate creations.”

It claims the backpack can be used for on-the-job training in sectors such as health care and the military. By doing this in a virtual environment, HP boasts that it will be able to cut costs for commercial customers.

The wearable PC is said to have tight integration with the HTC Vive Business Edition, but also works with other VR headsets, including the Oculus Rift. Prices will start at a cool $3299 when shipping starts in September – but, be warned, that doesn’t include the VR headset
