Valve to outline the future of VR at January conference

New, 14 comments

Valve believes it's figured out virtual reality for consumers, and it's going share what it's learned during the Steam Dev Days conference next January.

During a session called "What VR Could, Should, and Almost Certainly Will Be within Two Years," Michael Abrash, a Valve R&D specialist working on wearable computing, will also show a prototype VR headset.

"This type of hardware is almost certainly going to appear in short order, and the time to starting developing for it is now," the session's description reads. "This talk will discuss what the hardware is like, and the kinds of experiences it makes possible. A few attendees will be randomly selected to try out the prototype following the talk."

Valve's Steam Dev Days conference will take place Jan. 15-16, 2014 in Seattle. According to Valve, the event will allows developers to attend sessions, participate in roundtable discussions and "test-drive and provide feedback" on Steam OS, Steam Machines, Steam Controllers and more.
