I'm looking forward to more of Valves strategic moves. I'm currently anxious to see how Steam OS plays out.

Probably nothing more than a standard controller with steam writ-in on it. Maybe... maybe a little motion control built into it, to make it different. but most likely not. Anything short of using my mind like in books and anime to be the character, then VR will have a hard road till tech really improves to meet imaginations.
