MSI VR One Backpack Brings Freedom to VR

One of key detractors for a complete immersion into virtual reality experience is the presence of cables which hinder your digital movement. Hence, the question for the VR industry is… what is freedom and how one becomes free? If you ask that question to someone from MSI, he or she would just smile and gave you something… backpack alike. You would than realize that suddenly it’s possible to have your cake and eat it too. It is possible to hunt dragons next to your sleeping girlfriend or boyfriend without waking her (or him). Actually, not just one pack but several big, ugly packs of dragons.

What comes next is to ride off into sunset – what an awesome bag this is. During the Tokyo Game Show 2016, MSI announced “world’s first-ever VR Backpack,” the MSI VR One. We view this proclamation as somewhat funny, given that HP announced its OMEN backpack in May, followed by Alienware on E3 2016 (June) and XMG from Schenker Technologies announced their product on Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Then again, MSI is the only backpack available for purchase.

Yeah, I don't see this catching on.

And that didn't catch on either - I don't see anyone still using one like that.

If this eventually gets us to an All-In-One VR unit then great - but I don't see backpacks catching on for VR.

That had a lot to do with the price also. For example, the Radio Shack unit used in Lethal Weapon sold for $1200 in 1987, not including the exorbitant monthly costs and minutes. But there were people who paid the price. I remember bag phones and phones installed in cars in the early 90's, as the prices and sizes got smaller more and more people bought them. Now they're so common everyone has one. But companies won't spend money on R&D to get the technology to that point unless the demand starts with those early adopters.
