HONG KONG – November 28, 2016 – ZOTAC International, a global manufacturer of innovation, is pleased to introduce an entirely new way to experience immersive VR with the ZOTAC VR GO backpack. Since making the impact at Computex 2016 with the first ever mobile VR experience, ZOTAC has improved the design, performance, and endurance of the original backpack.
“The VR GO is an exciting innovation for everyone to finally enjoy VR the way it is meant to be experienced,” says Tony Wong, CEO, ZOTAC International. “We want to provide the best of both worlds to our users: Powerful VR in high resolution and fast framerates while enjoying true mobility in a compact, wearable form. The VR GO is the best way to VR.”
The ZOTAC VR GO is designed for a truly mobile VR experience. From hardware to comfort, every detail is considered. VR GO provides powerful yet efficient performance with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics and Intel Core i7 processor. Hardware and thermal design enable marathon playtime with comfort and minimal noise. Securing the backpack with both chest and waist straps, users can move freely in the other world.
VR GO is built for longevity with two main features:
- Up to 2-hours play time with 2 dedicated batteries
- Battery hot-swap provides nearly limitless action
A charging dock comes bundled to charge the dedicated batteries. The VR GO also enables users to easily know the status of the battery charge with an easy to see LED indicator.
“When designing the VR GO, we were keen on emphasizing the user experience,” Says Jacky Huang, Director of Mini PC, ZOTAC International. “We want the users to truly immerse in virtual reality and free their mind from limitations such as cables, power, and discomfort.”
Systems are usually designed to be placed away from the user, where it is meant to be connected to devices that are placed at arm’s length. The VR GO breaks the tradition, and sets the standard for wearing a device with full desktop capabilities. To maintain comfort levels, the exhaust heat is channeled away from the user and dedicated paths on the back support allow the body to breathe and stay cool during extended sessions.
The weight is evenly distributed for ergonomic comfort while the added foam back support and shoulder strap padding provide the extra comfort. The VR GO backpack is the next step into a truly immersive VR experience, perfect for uses from personal to commercial and industrial as it can transform to either a wearable form or as a standalone desktop Mini PC. Windows 10 Home comes pre- installed so it is ready for action right out of the box. Per tradition with all ZOTAC ZBOX Mini PCs, VR GO is easily upgradable in both storage and memory.
