    Interesting, so new HMD from HTC/Valve thrown into the ring:
    - 2x 1200x1080p screens @ 90Hz( probably not OLED though like DK2 booo ), the FOV will be higher than Oculus and probably ~120 degrees as opposed to 100 degrees of the DK2
    - Uses inside out tracking, i.e. the HMD has cameras and theres 2 valve VR base stations giving 15 foot x 15 foot tracking( this is very interesting )
    - includes audio jack on the HMD
    - Consumer version this year, Dev Kits in spring
    - will use valve controllers to manipulate objects in VR

    This is becoming really interesting :)

    Will fail. The market isn't ready for VR. Sorry Gabe.
