    Lightbulb Valve Reveals Gaming Headset, Teases Big Picture [Slashdot]



    dotarray writes with a bit from Player Attack: "Gaming is big business, says Valve, as the developer takes the time to show off its brand new gaming headset and TV-based Big Picture. Rather than inviting the games media masses who have been clamouring for any details on the Seattle company's 'wearable computing' initiative, Gabe Newell and his team instead went right to the top, with an in-depth interview published in The New York Times."The New York Times article on which this report is based is worth reading, too: Valve's corporate non-structure sounds hard to believe. It seems Valve is also looking for hardware designers.

    So, a 21st century Virtual Boy, pretty much? Looks risky, to say the least...

    Hey, I've spent money on stupider things. This looks interesting, and Valve is decently competent enough to get it off the ground. Whether or not it reaches its potential in a marketplace that sort of rejected 3D TVs and other gimmicks remains to be seen.
