Valve Index teased for May - Valve’s own VR headset

Valve Index teased for May - Valve’s own VR headset

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

Besides the teaser image, it teases "Upgrade your experience" with either an announcement and/or hardware launch in May 2019.

Valve Corporation's long-rumored VR headset is finally real.

The news came on Friday in the form of a single teaser image, shown above, of a headset with the phrase "Valve Index" written on its front.

Alfa Romeo confirms formula 1 Test of Mick Schumacher
The 2018 European Formula Three champion Schumacher has been part of Ferrari's driver academy since January. Alfa Romeo has confirmed the use of a 20 years old young pilots in the next week in Bahrain.

Unfortunately there's no sign of the Half-Life game that some insiders were suggesting might be revealed alongside a VR headset from Valve - though maybe Valve is just waiting until May to give us the details.

This had been partially leaked before to UploadVR, who noted that the headset should have a wider field of view than existing headsets, and the resolution should be around that of the Vive Pro's 1440×1600.

Sadly we're left in the dark about a number of things, including accessories like controllers or new games for the Valve Index. These two cameras also suggest that the Index will use inside-out tracking rather than external sensors or base stations that track players' movements around the room. If so it will no doubt cost a pretty penny, but we'll have to wait and see.
