Straps to the back of your TV
I’ve hid my gaming/media PC rig behind or under my television for years. It’s much easier these days with all of the small form factor boxes available. But I don’t care how lovely they make these things; I’m still hiding them if I can.
This new 4K-ready gaming machine from London-based hardware startup PiixL was built with hiding in mind. Their G-Pack gaming rig mounts directly behind your HDTV, fitting behind anything between 37 and 70 inches in diagonal. Smart design has let them make a hefty gaming rig that’s only 2 inches thick. The form factor is VESA-mountable, so it works with existing TV mounts. The ports are edge-mounted, of course.
The machines range from a Core i3/ GTX 960 rig ($1,695) all the way up to a Core i7 4790 / GTX 980 ($2,695), with the latter being fully capable of 4K play.
Their Kickstarter has 22 days to go. They’re looking to hit $150,000 to get this going. The goal is to ship machines as well as empty chassis kits early next year.
Where do you put your living room gaming rig?
