HP Backpack Computer for VR – Omen X Compact

In April, we wrote about an extremely peculiar device – HP Omen X, a portable computer-backpack which is also an accessory for virtual reality. The release was expected in June but HP couldn’t keep up to the schedule. Finally, the VR computer-backpack is here – HP officially opened the sales for Omen X Compact.

The device works like this: users connect a VR headset to this PC-backpack and get a totally wireless VR experience. The backpack includes four 73W batteries and a charging station. During the operation, a pair of such batteries can be “hot-swapped” – it means that the backpack doesn’t stop working, you just have to replace discharged batteries with new charged ones. One pair of batteries last for about an hour of gaming.

The docking station adds a Thunderbolt port, a mini DisplayPort, one extra HDMI and one more USB port. The Omen X Compact is available for $2500 but that’s without the special straps for the backpack – they can be bought separately for additional $500.
