Earlier this year, despite their initial refutes, Valve appeared to be on track to making gaming hardware of their own. It looks like they’re well on their way as thanks to a new job listing, it looks like the developer is currently seeking an Industrial Designer which basically states how they are frustrated with the lack of innovation, hence the need to step in and do something about it. According to the job description:
“We’re frustrated by the lack of innovation in the computer hardware space though, so we’re jumping in. Even basic input, the keyboard and mouse, haven’t really changed in any meaningful way over the years. There’s a real void in the marketplace, and opportunities to create compelling user experiences are being overlooked.”
In any case it’s probably too early to tell what exactly is Valve up to, but if you’d like to find out more and perhaps even apply for the position if you think you have the right qualifications, head on over to Valve’s website for the details.
