Origin Omni Main

It's a commonly known fact that all-in-one computers are a perfect solution for office. They consume less power than laptops and usual PC and require very little space in comparison to the bulky PC’s. However, all-in-one computers also have their shortcomings. For instance, they have integrated graphics card and other components, which simply cannot be powerful enough to support video gaming at a level, required by hardcore gaming enthusiasts. With technological advancements, video games become increasingly demanding in terms of hardware. Apart from that, the appearance of VR and 4K UHD monitors also require quite a serious set-up for smooth work. Therefore, all-in-one computers simply cannot compete in the field of gaming with their rather weak integrated hardware.

Introducing Origin Omni

Origin has unveiled its new technological wonder during CES 2016 in Las Vegas. It’s an all-in-one computer with curved monitor, designed specifically for gaming. Obviously, it is hard to underestimate the benefits of such device – it takes very little space and requires only keyboard and mouse. No more tug-of-war with tangled cables all over your workstation – everything is inside its stunningly beautiful curved monitor.

Origin Omni

What distinguishes Omni from other AIO's?

Origin Omni is customizable. It means that Origin equipped its latest creation with traditional components of a decent gaming PC. Thus, if there arises the necessity to replace one of the components, say graphics card – you can easily do it. Apart from that, Origin spared no expenses on the gorgeous curved 34” monitor that amazes with its quality. Omni will be available in several configurations; however, modders will find it easy to replace components, as they deem necessary.

Tech specs:

Given its gaming direction, there must be no doubt in the seriousness of its set up. This stunning beauty can boast Core i7 processor, Sealed Liquid–Cooling system, developed by Origin, NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics card, 32 GB of RAM and dual 2.5”SSD’s. Not bad for all-in-one computer. However, the real gem of this device is its gorgeous and beautiful curved 3440 x1440 QHD 34” display with 60Hz refresh rate that can double as TV via HDMI. All of the components can be replaced if better version are needed and available, even the motherboard itself.

Origin Omni PC

Price tag and Release date

As it was promised by Origin, Omni must become available shortly – in the 1st quarter of 2016. Given that the 34” curved monitor alone costs around $800, it should come as no surprise that the prices will start at $2,000. If comparing with gaming laptops, prices on which start at $3,000 and higher – its cost seems reasonable, even more so if you take into account insanely powerful GTX TITAN X, which is included in the rig.


Origin Omni became first all-in-one PC, created for gaming. Now, the question is whether gamers, aiming for high-end gaming PC will take a second look at it and consider buying it instead.

Unfortunately for Origin, these hardcore gamers are the target audience for Omni, so now its creators are anxiously awaiting for the reaction of the audience. Will it be a strong competitor in the PC gaming race – that remains to be seen.

Meta 2 Headset

In comparison with virtual reality devices, such as Vive and Oculus, which are about to be released, augmented reality devices remain sort of in the shadows. That is quite unfair, given that this technology that has first of all industrial application, will one day replace smartphones. Granted, augmented realty devices are not as sleek as VR headsets (however that is also arguable), nevertheless, if one gets a chance to use one – it becomes a real eye-opener.

What is Meta 2?

Meta 2 – an augmented reality headset has been unveiled in February, during TED 2016. The first feature that catches theeye is certainly the extensive 90-degree field-of-view and 2560×1440 display. Such an extensive field of view is unprecedented for augmented reality headsets; even HoloLens offers lesser field-of-view. However, according to CEO of Meta augmented reality headset in future will look just like a stripe of protective glass.

How Meta 2 works?

In virtual reality, field-of-view (FoV) is very important because user has to be concentrated on the virtual world. In augmented reality, field of view must be clear, as images are streamed into theeye retina. Meta 2 can replace practically every mobile device – tablet, laptop, smartphone – you name it. It allows you to interact with virtual objects, streamed to the wearable glasses. Movements of your head and body are
being tracked with sensors that transfer the signals and modify the way the objects are displayed on the glasses. The controls help to select and move objects. Meta 2 also provides eye-tracking, which has a definite advantage as an enterprise-focused solution, despite the fact that for now manual input is considered a more precise option.

Price tag and Release date

At this point, VR can be considered a first step towards industrial use of augmented reality, an adaptation of sorts. It’s still new and desirable for many. However, as soon as the hype surrounding VR is over and people start to think about practical application of the technology, augmented reality era will began and stay for good. Company planning to start shipping the headsets in the 3rd quarter of 2016. Meta 2 dev kit is available for per-order for the price of $949.

Bottom line:

Virtual reality is just a first step towards augmented reality application at an industrial scale. Its possibilities are truly limitless and when the technology allows making the AR headsets lighter and more affordable, gradual transition towards replacing all our mobile devices with AR headsets will commence.
