Valve Is Teasing "Index" - Its Own VR Headset

Valve Is Teasing

Valve's long-rumored VR headset has officially been unveiled, though initial details are incredibly light. Given Valve's work on Linux SteamVR support and enabling the HTC Vive on Linux, more than likely the Valve Index will feature first-rate Linux support.

The teaser image doesn't reveal too much about the headset other than giving us a simple glimpse at Index, accompanied by the line "Upgrade your experience" - how elusive.

What seem to be two sensors can be seen at the side of the Valve Index case and previous reports suggest the headset will come with a wider-than-normal field of view.

That's about all we now know on the device, but it's still enough to raise our interest in the upcoming reveal.

Now they will try their hand at developing and producing their own virtual reality headset, called the Valve Index.

Valve is known for making hit shooting games like Half-Life and Portal, and the battle battle strategy game Dota 2.

Now it's confirmed, and we just have to wait and see what it actually is.
