Michael Abrash is a member of the virtual reality team at Valve. During this past week’s Steam Developer Days, he gave a talk entitled “What VR Could, Should, And Almost Certainly Will Be Within Two Years.” In his own words, the talk is summed up with:
Compelling consumer-priced VR hardware is coming, probably within two years. It’s for real this time – we’ve built prototypes, and it’s pretty incredible. Our technology should work for consumer products. VR will be best and will evolve most rapidly on the PC. Steam will support it well. And we think it’s possible that it could transform the entire entertainment industry.
