High quality untethered VR in backpack

August 5th, 2019, Published in Articles: PositionIT

To give creators new ways to leverage VR in their workflows, HP launched its new HP VR Backpack is for both VR creation and consumption. Specifically designed to tackle VR engines including Unreal and Unity, the VR solution provides shading and framerate support for more natural rending. Powered by 8th Gen Intel Core i7 and Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080, the backpack provides a 30% performance boost and 25% more powerful graphics over the previous generation. The free-roam tetherless experience is designed to address the needs of multi-user entertainment venues, architectural walk-throughs, and design simulations. While docked or VESA mounted, the VR Backpack acts as a powerful, super-slim desktop ready for intensive design work. The backpack operates on hot-swappable batteries, with an updated battery holster designed to make swapping even simpler. It also features optimised cable management for increased range of motion. The solution is certified for VRED and Autodesk Revit. As a backpack and desktop in one it gives users the freedom to iterate quickly and experience large-scale designs in an interactive way. It is also built for safer, repeatable simulations and walk-throughs at scale, whether you are training for high-risk situations or maintenance and manufacturing.
