HP has launched a wearable virtual reality (VR) backpack for commercial use. Unlike other VR solutions, the $4,999 HP Z VR Backpack offers an untethered VR adventure as the computer is assembled to a lightweight backpack weighing around 4.6 kilogram. It works with the HTC Vive VR headset (Business Edition), which is sold separately. Hot-swappable batteries let users work without any interruption. The backpack turns into a desktop computer when attached into its docking station, which supports two 4K screens.
HP said it is excellent for product development, employee training, walk through simulations and immersive consumer adventures. The PC maker also announced other new industrial services and products, including laptops, desktops and workstations. The EliteBook X-360 10 20 G2 ($2,399) is touted as the planet's thinnest and lightest 2 In 1 convertible in just 1.13kilogram. It can switch between five different usage modes, from a clam shell notebook to your tablet for carrying notes. The EliteBook 1040 G4 ($2,399) is a slim business laptop with the latest Intel chip as the HP EliteOne 1000 All-in-One computer (from $1,899) features a pop-up camera unit using a camera on every side for video conferencing.
For companies that need more powerful computers, the more desktop-bound HP Z Workstations (from $2,399) might be configured for a array of demanding activities, from 3 d simulations to editing 8K videos in real time. Meanwhile, the HP ZBook x-2 ($2,699) might be detached from its computer keyboard to turn into a pill appropriate for content creators. Users may pick a 14-inch 4K multi touch screen with service for more than 1 billion colours and 100 per cent Adobe RGB coverage.
HP also launched refreshed variants of its premium Spectre 13 and Spectre x360 laptops. This year's Spectre 1 3 ($2,399) ultrabook adds a touchscreen (up to 4K resolution) and is powered by a fresh quadcore Intel chip. The Spectre X 360 ($2,399) includes a cushioned 360degree hinge that lets it convert between tablet and laptop forms. It now includes an incorporated privacy monitor, the newest Intel processor and an infra red front camera using facial comprehension.
