A Valve VR headset will finally be real

The Valve Index Has Finally Been Revealed And It's Coming In May

Hopefully, the Index is as cool as it seems and doesn't disappoint upon release.

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.

In fact, Valve filed a series of trademarks for "Valve Index" in December 2018 with American and European IP bodies USPTO and EUIPO.

The initial Valve Index announcement was made last week with an official Steam page that indicates a May 2019 release window.

Pompeo Cautions Russia Over Reports Of Military Mission In Venezuela
Russian Federation has warned the United States and neighbors against a military intervention in Venezuela. He said that Russian General Vasily Tonkoshkurov led the troops off one of the planes.

The new device headset is due ship on June 15, though that date could change.

In a report via Polygon, however, Valve has not only given us the name, but they've also teased something far more interesting.

As Ars Technica reveals, we've heard rumors Valve was preparing to launch its own VR hardware for a while. Of course, this is all conjecture based on the information available, which does not extend beyond the image itself. We can't glean much from the teaser image other than the headset has a pair of cameras on it and appears to have adjustable lenses for customization for users. What would you like to see from Valve? That is, in conjunction with the Half-Life news, more than a little to look forward to! Oculus VR recently announced a new $399 VR headset called the Oculus Rift S. Sony also sells a VR headset called the PlayStation VR, which is powered by the PlayStation 4 console.
