Ben Krasnow, Mechanical and Electrical Engineer at Valve attended a conference last Saturday on the 29th of December where he talked about their upcoming “Steambox” and new exciting hardware projects, that Valve will present in 2013.
German site Golem.de was at the conference and picked the most interesting stuff in this article.
Valve’s engineer talked about their labs and that they want to change the “frustrating lack of innovation in the area of computer hardware”. He also mentioned a console launch in 2013 and that it will specifically use Linux and not Windows. Furthermore he said that Valve’s labs will reveal yet another new hardware in 2013, most likely rumored controllers and VR equipment but we can expect some new exciting stuff.
So it’s going to be exciting, we can expect a concrete announcement on the GDC 2013 from March 25th till March 29th 2013 in San Francisco, or at E3 2013, which is going to take place in Los Angeles from June 11th till June 13th 2013.
