Gigazine reports that MSI recently showed off its Backpack PC, which is outfitted with an Intel Core i7 processor and a NVIDIA GTX980 graphics card. The idea is that by wearing the PC on your back, you'll be free to have an even more immersive VR gaming experience.

[Image: Gigazine] Save for the fact you've got an 5kg PC strapped to your back, but whatever. According to Gigazine, which recently checked out the rig, it's apparently not burdensome.

    Battery powered or?

      Yes. Possibly 40 AA batteries.
      Just kidding, I know HP one is using battery on waist belt. http://www.kotaku.com.au/2016/05/hps-omen-x-is-a-gaming-pc-backpack-for-vr-headsets/

      according to Ars Tech, battery powered rated for 90min usage

      I wonder how hot the darn thing gets

        Its got some pretty chunky vents on the sides, so I don't think heat will be an issue at all if the fans are done well.

    I played Zero Latency a few weeks ago and after about 2 minutes you forget you're wearing a PC on your back. The trigger finger pain was the most noticeable thing after 45 minutes of VR zombie apocalypse!

    It's only 5kg, and it has a waist strap - if you get fatigued carrying this thing, you are seriously unfit.
