Rumor: Valve plans release of new standalone virtual reality helmet

Dataminer SadlyitsBradley found a reference to a Deckard in the SteamVR code. The device is located next to other VR helmets, which means that this is one more thing. It should be noted that next to the mention of Deckard there is a POC sign โ€” The dataminer is convinced that the abbreviation stands for proof of concept, meaning the helmet exists only as an afterthought so far.

It is also curious that a new line has been found in SteamVR settings โ€” Standalone System Layer. This is likely a hint that Valve plans to release a fully self-contained helmet that doesnt require a PC connection in the future.
