HP’s Wave PC is a full-featured Windows computer designed for the home. Its triangular form results from the most efficient arrangement of computing components, making it 85% smaller than traditional tower PCs, but capable of handling demanding computing tasks with 4K video output and support for multiple displays. Premium finishes and woven fabric make it appear more as furniture than an electronic device. A collaboration with B & O Play created 360° audio through acoustic lens technology so you can hear music with clarity throughout an entire room, and integrated far-field mics allow hands-free control of the device through natural speech.
