Valve to unveil virtual reality tech in January

Valve has developed their own prototype VR tech which the company will showcase in January 15-16 during the Steam Dev Days event in Seattle.

The lecture during the event will be called “What VR Could, Should, and Almost Certainly Will Be Within Two Years” and is being headed by veteran game programmer and Valve’s very own Michael Abrash. (Dev, PC, Tech, Valve)

I myself can't wait for VR.
I take it you haven't tried an oculus yet, believe me your wouldn't be saying that if you have.

if the Oculus Rift can be born out of a kickstarter, just imagine what Sony or Valves funding can do for VR. Sony has all the tools; Move controllers, Eye camera, 3D, experience, head tracking, soon EYE Tracking... etc. its going to be amazing.

The thing about Oculus is you look like a total douche wearing that thing. Count me out!

I´v watched others playing it, i´v seen their fatigue facial looks after a 1h session. Most of them had eye-problems they were like dried out as fuck...

99% of us are sitting on a couch, a comfy couch with some type of beverage and some of us sharing our fun with a partner in our lifes.

I´m not sitting in front of a 55" screen or PC monitor and only move my head around. Guess what :

Except for the extra immersion that you get with a VR unit, the other stuff like moving your head around is old news.
