Intel packs a VR-ready PC into a vest

Intel recently showed Project Alloy, a wireless VR headset that packs the computing power into the headset. The chip-maker also showed off a  prototype VR ready PC that can be worn inside a vest, giving users more freedom to walk around while experiencing VR.

The PC is on the back of the vest, while the front side vest holds 100 Wh and 20 Wh lithium ion battery. The idea here is to have a vest for PC VR gaming which would offer owners better balance, as the components are evenly distributed on the front and back, instead of having everything put in a backpack. 

The PC can be plugged to VR headsets like HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, and users will not have to worry about the cable and be able to walk freely and interact with the virtual environment, as everything moves at the same time.

The PC inside the vest is one of Intel's small NUC designs with an quad-core i7-678R processor w/ Iris Pro 580 graphics, 8GB RAM and 64GB SSD. The entire system weighs just five pounds.

Intel's PC vest is still in development stage, so don't expect it to hit the market anytime soon. Just a few months ago HP and MSI also showed off prototypes of PC backpacks that could be used for VR gaming.
