I never thought I'd write about Pokemon, but I recently saw the Pokemon game for the first time. Though I am not a convert, I can see why people get into it. For those that don't know, there are characters and you roam around looking for things and fighting things (from my understanding).
For fans, the Pokemon Go Plus device was released recently ($34.99) and allows for a cool AR experience where it looks like the little guys are all around you, instead of navigating in their Pokemon world.
Ok so the truth comes out at the end of the post- I'm sharing this with the world because I'm probably going to get this for my significant other, a grown man who loves the game. If this person exists in your life, it might make a good birthday or Christmas gift.
Alienware, for those of us not into extreme gaming, is a company that makes very expensive hardware for people very into gaming, and now they are venturing into the VR Backpack space, or exploring it at least.
A bit stunned at WTF could this be, I had to further investigate what a VR backpack was and here it is: wearing a computer on your back, so you don't have to trip over cables and be limited to the proximity of the PC, when you use a PC based VR headset (as you currently need to with all the major robust headsets).
Personally not a gamer so please read on about the other notables that are already in the game: HP and Zotec. Even more reading here.
VR & AR are for everyone.
