Want to go mobile with the HTC Vive?

Strap a PC to your back

Honestly, while it all sounds a bit absurd – and surely both heavy and expensive – the experience looks great in the video: it’s the Vive experience, albeit untethered. Well, less tethered, at least. Whatever the case, it seems like a lot of fun. But there are still a lot of questions, since Zotac didn’t share many hard details in its blog post or press release. The company says they’ll have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, 980, and 980 Ti GPUs available for the configurations, but there’s no word yet on price or availability.

Furthermore, how long is that battery realistically going to last powering both a PC and the connected headset? And is that backpack ventilated enough to keep the PC from frying within, but also insulated enough to save your back from heat rash? We hope to hear about all of this soon, because frankly, we can’t wait to give it a spin.
