MSI as we know is one of the leading designers of computer hardware, specifically when it comes to gaming computers which are known has high efficiency, high performance, and spectacular graphics Even though MSI is still young in the industry, they are taking over a niche that has long since been dominated by companies such as Dell, Lenovo, HP, and Toshiba. This new kid on the block packs all their computers with the fastest processors, high capacity RAM, and speeds that blow the mind. The only answer that other competitors have for MSI is their Alienware computers. These Alienware computers are the top line products that come as Desktops and Laptops for the flag ship of these varied manufacturers.

Now that Virtual Reality has taken its place in the mainstream and is rapidly being incorporated in all our everyday technology, it is only fitting that the leader in Alienware computers innovates one of their brands to take virtual reality to the next level. MSI has dubbed its new gaming computer system for virtual reality as “VR One”.  The MSI VR One is nothing short of a powerful system that the user wears as a backpack. The system is not only powerful, but also lightweight. The MSI VR One comes with two hand controllers, the system, the utility backpack carrier, and the VR headset. Just as with any system there are other accessories that a user can purchase. However, because it is a regular computer, the additional accessories are not solely through MSI, you can purchase from any other manufacturer accessories and use its plug and play feature with the MSI VR One.

The MSI VR One packs a punch by having high-end Intel Core i7 processors, NVIDIA extreme level GTX 1070 and GTX 1060 graphics cards. These new enhancements to the computer allows it to give the full look and feel within the virtual reality without any constraints that other computers may currently have. The ability for a user to be totally immersed into the virtual reality without the anchor of cords or equipment holding the user back from making moves forward, is where the MSI VR One stands out amongst other potential competitors. The backpack can run up to 1.5hrs of constant play/usage without being recharged.

The MSI VR One has “hot-swap” battery capability. This means that the battery can be changed out without loss of power to the device which eliminates downtime. It comes with a full VR HMD compatible Direct HMD I/O.  The sleek ID design makes the slim figure of the computer even more stylish and easy to carry around. Because MSI has dedicated this device to the Virtual Reality platform, it has a plethora of VR One applications that enhance not only the experience, but opens the doors for users to see just how powerful virtual reality is becoming.  The ports on the MSI VR One are the 4 VR HMD ports, 1 HDMI, a mini display port, along with a headphone and mic jack.  The pack weights 3.6 KG which is a little less than 8lbs. With power being the major concern when using VR devices, the MSI VR One comes with 2 battery packs. Memory in this device varies by the cost that the user is willing to spend, hence, there are different options from 256GB to 512GB.  RAM in the MSI VR One comes with 16 GB which is (2x8GB) DDR4.  The operating system of choice is Windows 10 Pro, but can be changed to any version of Windows once purchased.Wifi connectivity on the MSI VR One is a breeze with bluetooth 4.1 and 1535 Wifi.  The headsets which work best for this device is the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.  Both headsets have to be purchased separately and do not come as part of the VR One package.  If the virtual reality capabilities are not used, the VR One can be used as a super powered Alienware desktop.

Step Aside Amazon Alexa and Google Home, here is Microsoft’s “Invoke”!

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Amazon started the trend of voice assistants built into a speaker that has taken flight and given the market a new meaning to voice activated shopping, music, event planning, and more. Amazon originally put this technology in the Amazon Echo in 2015 and three years later, they have developed the technology into Alexa, which is a much larger speaker plus added a lot more features. Alexa has the ability to work with other apps including integrate with Smart home devices via some nifty integrated application features.

 

Since Amazon’s introduction of Echo and Alexa, the competition market has picked up by other large companies such as Google which has come out with Google Home to compete against the rise in Amazon’s Alexa and Echo. Since the launch of Google Home in 2016, it has managed to grab a large part of the market by enabling many of the same Amazon features, but with the Google app store integration and Google Assistant. These two large competitors have managed to dominate the voice assistant market since its launch by Amazon a few years ago.

 

There is a new competitor on the market that has taken notes from the defects and short comings of Amazon and Google, to come out with a more optimal device. Microsoft has stepped into the market and pledges to have more features, more integration, and less defects than the current line of Amazon Echo and Alexa. It promises to be more reliable than the current Google Home. Microsoft’s version of the voice assistant is dubbed “Invoke”. Invoke is built by Harmon Kardon and packs a huge plethora of Microsoft technology under the belt.

Invoke will be powered by Cortana as the voice assistant with a cylinder shape similar to that of Amazon’s Alexa. Microsoft services will be integrated such as Skype for business to make voice calls at a mere command or accept and announce them with stereo sound throughout the room.  Cortana will have the latest features such as keeping up with calendars, meetings, reading emails, and ordering from the Microsoft app store.  Bing will be utilized as the search agent of choice as this is a Microsoft flagship product, it will have the bells and whistles of Microsoft’s major product integrations making it easy to transition from voice to pc and more.

 

With this device being made available to the public in the Fall of 2017, Microsoft is said to have a “killer feature” that is said to change the game in the voice assistant industry. Google and Amazon are on edge to find out what this new feature is that Microsoft is to unveil with their new flag ship for technology. Microsoft is gearing up to push for this device to its 145 million Windows 10 Cortana base to in an attempt to offset the Amazon and Google market. However, with Invoke not scheduled to be revealed until Fall of 2017, Google and Amazon have time to instill many upgrades in anticipation of this new adversary on the market.
