As VR (virtual reality) looks to transform itself into an increasingly more mobile (aka convenient) experience HP has debuted a novel solution to the wires and tethers associated with VR today – a backpack.
At SIGGRAPH 2017, HP announced the HP Z VR Backpack, a 10-lb, wearable PC with enough horsepower for both experiencing and creating VR content. While it is easy to imagine the entertainment potential of the Z VR, HP has made it clear that it wants its new wearable PC to be catalyst for bringing more robust VR experiences to business and enterprise first and foremost. Safer simulation and training, virtual walkthroughs for architectural design, and better collaboration in virtual environments for product designers, are just a few of the use cases cited by HP.
At its core the Z VR Backpack is a Windows 10 PC with an Intel Core i7 processor, 32 GB of SDRAM, a Nvidia Quadro P5200 GPU, and up to 1 TB of internal storage. It measures in at 13.11 x 9.29 x 2.39 inches and weighs 10.25 lbs according to specs released by HP. The backpack is powered by a 55Whr lithium-ion battery and features two, external portable 74 Whr hot-swappable batteries. The Z VR can also be docked and serve as a desktop PC.
If you've had a chance to try VR for product design you know that the cords and wires can make for a very cumbersome (and potentially unsafe) work experience, particularly with multiple users operating in the same physical space. Without some sort of handy rig overhead to manage the wires and someone to spot you and hold the cords connecting your headset and controllers to the workstation, it only takes a few turns before you end up wrapped in cable clutter.
Placing VR into a backpack form factor goes a long way in addressing the cable clutter issues, but in hands-on demonstrations at SIGGRAPH it feels like comfort is still a big issue. At 10 lbs the backpack itself is not terribly heavy, but it is just heavy enough to be noticeable and one wonders how it will play out with extended use – particularly if adapted to more physically demanding tasks like entertainment (live-action shooting games) or design sessions that require prolonged standing.
The other issue, which to be fair is completely outside of HP's control, is the weight of the headset. The latest version of the HTC Vive weighs in at just over a pound. That may not sound significant but it becomes very noticeable when it's attached to your moving head (also consider a pair of memorizing glasses only weighs about 30-40 grams). Anyone that has ever worked out will tell you that adding a total of about 11 lbs to your bodyweight can have a significant impact.
But headsets are only promising to get lighter. Kopin, a manufacturer of lightweight displays, recently unveiled a reference design, codenamed Elf VR, that will used patented microdisplay panels to create a VR headset the company estimates will be about 50% lighter than headsets currently available.
The move to untethered VR with internal tracking must also be considered. Oculus and HTC have promised the next generation of their headsets will be wireless and companies including Microsoft and Qualcomm are working with partners to deliver untethered headsets as well. A lightweight, wireless headset that delivers the same fidelity as a tethered headset could make the placement of a workstation entirely irrelevant.
Depending on how long it takes for wireless VR products to roll out wide, HP's backpack could catch on with customers too impatient for untethered solutions. We'll have to wait and see whether the backpack PC becomes a standard or a footnote, but for now it may offer a good intermediary step toward fully free VR.
What do you think of HP's VR Backpack solution? Let us know in the comments.

Voulgaris’ biology tips:
When Ben Ostermeyer, 18, was studying for his 2021 VCE exams, he was in and out of lockdown. It meant a lot of his study groups were online.
Ostermeyer, a former student of Whitefriars College in Donvale, scored a 50 in psychology and earned himself a premier’s award in the subject. He’s now studying speech pathology at the Australian Catholic University.
He leaned on his teachers, his friends and his mother to drill content before doing practice exams.
“I got other people involved. I studied with my mates and my mum and went through the content togther,” he says.
He did about 10 practice exams altogether, the first few of which he did open-book style to identify areas he needed to focus more on, before progressing to closed-book exams.
Although he didn’t use a timetable to study, Ostermeyer did make sure he did all his practice exams at the same time they were scheduled: 10am.
The psychology test includes multiple choice, short-answer questions and an extended-answer question. He says it was good to experiment with completing the different sections at different paces.
“In the exam, I found I spent more time on the multiple choice. In my practice exams I was flying through the multiple choice. I would recommend trying to do them at different paces,” he says.
He also recommends spending time studying research methods – hypotheses, independent variables and experiments.
“Just get in there, have a crack at it. I was little bit nervous. I was pretty confident going in because I put in a lot of work, so I knew that would put me in good stead.”
Both students advise getting a good night’s sleep before the test and taking time to relax, whether that’s by listening to music, doing puzzles or exercising.
Voulgaris says to remember that there are many pathways into your future career. “I’m at uni now. It’s a completely different landscape. No one cares what my ATAR was,” she says.
“I’m doing bio-med. You can do the same path through science. There are always options. You aren’t looking at it as a score that evaluates yourself. It’s just another tool to get where you need to go.”

When Nissan finally redesigned its Z sports car this year, the bar for the 370Z's replacement had lowered to mere microns off the floor. The old Z was available for sale continuously since 2009, receiving only minor upgrades along the way. We're not going to say "any new-ish car with four wheels and the shape of a sports car" would have sufficed, but the 2023 Z's job was relatively straightforward. Thankfully, Nissan exceeded most expectations with the new Z, delivering a sport coupe so stylish, so powerful, and so affordable as to almost make you forget the underlying platform is … effectively still the same as the ancient 370Z's.
You probably won't detect the connection to yesterday's 370Z unless you peek at the new Z's curb weight and notice the car's unusually tall cowl. Both are the direct result of Nissan recycling the 370Z's sedan-based platform; its bones were shared with the Infiniti G37, a larger vehicle that, when scaled to the Z's smaller footprint, betrayed its more upright structure. They can even trace their roots back to the two-decades-old 350Z. Reinforcing this architecture to its present, admirably stiff state required adding bracing and, thus, mass. Our Performance trim, stick-shift 2023 Nissan Z weighs 3,519 pounds, about 100 pounds heavier than a 2017 370Z we tested years ago.
Some of that extra cheddar comes from the new-to-Z, if not exactly all-new, VR30DDTT twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine. Borrowed from the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400 models, this engine spits out a Toyota Supra-beating 400 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. Those figures are well beyond the 370Z's 332 hp and 270 lb-ft, generated by a tractor-like 3.7-liter naturally aspirated V-6, and they eclipse the last-generation 370Z NISMO variant's 350 hp and 276 lb-ft. However, contending with quite a bit more Z in the metal, the twin-turbo V-6's impact on the 2023 Z's performance is muted. We managed to scoot the new model to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, a few tenths of a second quicker than non-NISMO previous-generation 370Zs and on par with the 350-horse NISMO variants. Toyota's lighter, until-now-automatic-transmission-only Supra is about a second quicker to 60 mph.
In practice, the VR30DDTT engine pulls strongly and with a refinement the old VQ engine could only dream of. The engine now spins without vibration and puts out pleasing guttural noises; by contrast, the previous Z's VQ engine behaved, sounded like, and felt like a truck engine. We noticed the six-speed manual's shift lever still bucks around when getting onto or quickly off the throttle, but it's the only notable physical manifestation of the engine's work. As before, there is no "sport" mode for the Z, only a satisfying physical button to the left of the steering wheel for defeating traction and stability control, and another alongside the shifter for the rev-matching S-Mode function. The manual transmission (a nine-speed auto is optional at no cost) is generally satisfying to use with rev-match on or off, but the throws are longer than in a GR Supra manual, and the decently weighted, springy clutch pedal has a long stroke.
Nissan is adamant we should not view the Z as a "track car," which on the surface seems strange, because the Z is a 400-hp, rear-wheel-drive sports car that, as tested here, comes with a Performance trim option. That designation includes a new clutch-type locking rear differential, bigger Akebono front brakes, and lightweight 19-inch Rays wheels. Why its maker would deem a car set up this way as unwelcome on a track, even for an amateur track day, would normally be a head-scratcher. But it makes sense in the way the Z drives; it's soft, comfortable, even. The body leans in corners, dives when you hit the brakes, and goes on-plane when you goose the twin-turbo V-6.
We piloted the Z around a short, winding circuit at our testing venue, and found it entertaining for precisely, we think, the reasons Nissan feels it shouldn't have been there. The weightier forced-induction V-6 pushes the Z's weight distribution forward relative to the 370Z, such that 57 percent of its mass presses through the front tires. Along with the suspension's general compliance, this makes for an oversteery experience as you near and pass through the handling limits. But thanks to the body lean, even novices can figure out how much grip remains in reserve. On our skidpad, the Z hung on for a 0.93-g average, matching the previous-gen NISMO variant. Toyota's GR Supra has similar roll compliance, if not quite as much, and has higher limits while being snappier at the limit, making it less friendly for would-be drifters.
Of course, more than mere fun goes into a car's track-worthiness, and there's no getting around the Z's braking power. While it's fine on, say, a fast road, we noticed the binders fading after a few laps of our course. This aspect alone would make us hesitate to track the Z on a regular basis if we owned it, unless we addressed the issues via aftermarket components. Nevertheless, we recorded a 110-foot best stop from 60 mph, right in line with the lighter Supra.
Given the 2023 Nissan Z's lack of hardcore abilities or intent, most customers likely will be served just fine by the base model that costs $10,000 less than this Performance version. You get the same engine and the same general goodness, minus a few performance parts the Z doesn't put to particularly good use, anyhow—well, aside from that locking differential, which comes in handy when sliding the car around.
More to the point: Even in Performance trim, the Z lives in an interesting corner of the market; it costs a few thousand bucks less than an equivalent six-cylinder Toyota GR Supra—the base Z even undercuts the entry-level four-cylinder Supra—and may even be cross-shopped against V-8-powered Mustangs and Camaros, four-cylinder BMW 2 series Coupes, and maybe even BMW's two-seat Z4 roadster (the Supra's German cousin). On the other hand, it's priced in premium hot hatch territory, making it a less practical but similar-performing alternative to enthusiast models such as VW's Golf R, Honda's Civic Type R, and the new Toyota GR Corolla.
The fact this car puts up numbers akin to the old 370Z's tier-above NISMO variant shows this redesign brought improvement, even if the rest of the non-numbers-focused experience relaxes. And therein lies the rub: We think a softer-edged, more road-focused sports car is novel and worthy of praise in today's age of ever-stiffening suspensions and Nürburgring development laps. It's too bad, however, that behind its appealing tuning, the Z feels old in other ways that don't show up in the objective test results.
There's geriatric Nissan switchgear from previous generations interspersed among the new displays; the interior trim went abuzz over rougher roads, despite the soft ride; and there's still that old-timey driveshaft windup that clunks its head up when shifting amongst lower gears at city speeds. A truly all-new car could have addressed these shortcomings, all of which carryover from the 370Z. Instead, Nissan gives enthusiasts more power and slightly better performance, more style, and a fresh touchscreen. There's somehow still some charm in that.
