Valve Teases Homegrown ‘Index’ VR Headset, May Launch Confirmed

If so it will no doubt cost a pretty penny, but we'll have to wait and see.

The Valve Index wouldn't mark the first time Valve has experimented with VR.

Valve has finally made a decision to enter the virtual reality hardware market with its first VR headset, which will go by the name of Valve Index.

Unfortunately, the leaked teaser of the Index VR Headset doesn't reveal much information about its specifications and features.


A new VR device seemingly called Valve Index has been teased earlier today on Steam.

The teaser image shows a conventional-looking VR headset with two front-mounted cameras and an adjustment dial. Ars Technica took the photo and increased the brightness and contrast, which offers a better look at the headset's sensors and design. That seems like it's about to change with the confirmation of the long-rumoured project: Valve Index. But a Valve spokesman said, "We will have more info soon". As it stands that would be a wider view than that of the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Vive Pro, all of which have a 100-degree field-of-view.

There isn't any more info available on the site beyond a date for when Valve will, I assume, share more info about this new piece of VR hardware. As for the slider, it's most likely for adjusting the interpupillary distance (IPD) to allow the wearer to have a more comfortable VR experience.
