Valve’s Virtual Reality Headset Could Be All Wireless, Hints Patent

Valve could be working on a new wireless VR headset that could take on the Meta Quest 2. Well, the actual device may be far from ready as we have landed on the patent of it. Could this be the rumored Valve Virtual Reality Headset code-named “Deckard”? Perhaps too early to tell. But what we can do is break down the schema of the device and unearth some details like that.

So let’s dive right in.

Valve Virtual Reality Headset Patent: Details

Valve’s patent filing for the “Head-Mounted Display” VR was apparently submitted in December 2021 but it got published only recently on June 16, 2022.

In the images as part of the patent, we get to see a basic outline of the headset design and parts.

The head strap is said to consist of “a front having a display housing and a back having rear housing. A first member extends between the front and the back and is adjustable via the actuation of a first rotatable actuator and a first cabling mechanism. A second member extends between the front and the back and is adjustable via an actuation of a second rotatable actuator and a second cabling mechanism. A third member extends between the front and back and is adjustable via the actuation of the second rotatable actuator and a third cabling mechanism.”

This isn’t the first time we are hearing about Valve Deckard. There have been a few murmurings of it here and there. Recently, YouTuber Brad Lynch (SadlyItsBradley) shared his findings related to Deckard in the Valve’s SteamVR code. You can watch the video below.
