In late 2014, Cloudhead was among a select group of VR pioneers invited to a secret summit at Valve Corporation. It was there that SteamVR was revealed for the first time, and Cloudhead began to develop for its vision of VR’s future: Roomscale.
Since then, Cloudhead has developed technical demos for each of SteamVR’s innovations, from the original roomscale demo at GDC 2015 to the reveal of the SteamVR Knuckles at SDD 2016.
Aperture Hand Lab is the latest collaboration; an exploration into the Portal universe and a state-of-the-art showcase of the finger tracking capabilities available with the next-gen Valve Index VR system.
