TECHNOLOGY Tuesday #39: Asus VivoPC X

Browse By

If you’ve been looking into virtual reality games I’m sure you’ve found that most of your options take up a ton of space or are just plain inconvenient.  Being forced to set up a headset right next to your computer doesn’t work for everyone. Especially those of us living in apartments or with kids and pets.
