MSI untethers VR headsets with MSI Backpack PC with NVIDIA GTX980 GPU

One of the great features of the Hololens is that its a full PC perched on your forehead. If you however want a no-compromise VR experience you need a full desktop PC with the latest GPU and processor.

Enter stage left MSI, who will be showing off their Backpack PC at Computex this year.

The device features a Intel Core i7 processor and NVIDIA GTX980 GPU, and presumably a massive battery, and is designed to allow you to plug in your HTC Vive or Oculus Rift and wander around free from the risk of tripping over the power cord (but of course not from running into the walls).

The Backpack PC does not appear to be an original idea, with OEM Zotac also showing off a similar device.

Computex 2016 takes place from May 31st to June 4th, and I am sure the MSI is just one of the many amazing new PCs we will see there.
