New images, details surface for Valve's VR headset

Valve made an appearance at last week's Boston VR Bender event, showing off an updated version of its in-development VR technology to attending developers.

Captured images show a new prototype of Valve's polka-dotted VR headset, which likely features a new method of precise positional tracking, according to VR Focus. A previous prototype, showcased prior to the departure of R&D team leader Atman Binstock, reportedly required its own dedicated floorspace at Valve's HQ to function.

More images of Valve's prototype VR hardware are collected in this Imgur album, and Reddit users have compiled additional shots here. Valve has not announced any plans to release a consumer version of its VR headset.
