Valve Giving Free Vive VR Dev Kits To Developers

Posted March 31, 2015 by Bunneh3000 in News

The VR revolution is almost upon us and one of the larger players in this venture, Valve, is set to make certain that their headset has plenty of apps and games to take advantage of it.

Valve’s Vive VR headset development kit that includes a headset, two single-handed controllers, and a system that tracks them all in the same absolute space. Created in partnership with HTC, this VR headset is most certainly one of the top tier headsets that will be available on the market. Valve is quickly becoming a major player in this whole console war and with tech like this, they may very well win it.

Steam has decided to take their development kits and give them away for free to a number of developers. They’ve promised that no matter how big or small, they will review the developer’s application and give out a modest number of dev kits so that there will be no shortage of loveliness once you strap on your brand new shiny Vive VR headset.

You couple that with Steam’s amazing library of games, their open SteamOS (which has courted a number of manufacturers to develop Steam machines), and their odd, but somewhat interesting, Steam controller, and you have the beginnings of something special.
