Valve Teases VR Headset Called Index


Quote:
Valve has long been said to be working on its own VR headset, which the company has not been particularly secretive about. The Half-Life developer has been openly hired a virtual reality hardware team to put out their own headset and rely less on the HTC Vive as their primary partner for VR. Now, thanks to a teaser image, it looks like Valve is getting to announce their own headset within the next two months.

The teaser page is for a headset which has the words "Valve Index" emblazoned on the plastic shell, revealing at least a name and very few other details. The shape matches prototype images received by UploadVR last year, which at the time boasted a fairly large field of view relative to competitors Vive and Rift.

The UploadVR story also suggested that Valve intends to support the headset with at least one piece of killer-app software: a Half-Life title.

If they make a good wireless headset then I can see adoption. Even if it is tethered to a processing/battery puck like some of the AR headsets (HoloLens/Magic Leap) it would be a big leap forward.

Dumb. Stop wasting time and money and just make Half Life 3 or at least Portal 3.

Launching this with Half-Life 3 would be a brilliant marketing move. Guaranteed to sell some units.
