HP will make a major virtual reality push in June, when it will start shipping its Omen X VR backpack PC.
The backpack PC has already been announced, but the company until now had not provided a shipping date. HP is accepting applications from gamers and commercial developers to test the product.
There will be two types of Omen X backpack PCs, Ron Coughlin, president of the Personal Systems Business at HP, said in an interview. HP will release a VR backpack for gamers, and one for commercial customers, he said.
Users will be able to carry the PC like a backpack and hook up a VR headset like HTC’s Vive. Wearing the backpack PC allows users to move around freely.
