Today at CES, Intel CEO Brian Krzanich announced the company is planning to take its all-in-one Project Alloy VR headset into productization by year's end. To do so, it's working with some of its "top OEM partners."

"We're committed to really making Project Alloy an open platform," he said. So, open source is a given. The question is if any of its hardware partners actually will makes the headset.

It could turn into a quagmire very quickly; OEMs can make these, but they have to want to first. A quick, hypothetical example: ASUS not supporting the headset because Acer might make one. That's before taking into account that people already own proven hardware like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive setups.
