Valve Job Listings Suggest Hardware
A job listing over at Valve has once again churned the rumour mill about some sort of Valve console.
The official title for the job is an Industrial Designer. However, it’s the actual description which suggests Valve are up to something big.
As an Industrial Designer at Valve, you will join a world-class group of electrical, mechanical, software engineers and designers who are busily defining new entertainment experiences through both hardware and software. We’re hoping to add your expertise in product design and manufacturing, ergonomics, usability, aesthetics, and surfacing to our team.
There’s this bit too:
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.
Could the rumoured Steam console be in the works?
