'Valve' developed a portable headset that functions as a VR news generator. As more consumers become familiar with VR technology, there is a growing demand for more VR content. This tool provides a way for consumers to stay up to date on current events by immersing themselves in the stories.

The 'Virtual Reality News Generator' from 'Valve' is a headset that delivers VR news content. Unlike other VR headsets, the Virtual Reality News Generator includes a small hammer that strikes the user in the temple in order to mimic the feeling of being in the midst of an ongoing news story. The headset also features a binaural audio soundscape to immerse users in the kinds of story they might otherwise simply read.

The Virtual Reality News Generator is indicative of an ongoing shift in the way we interact with and experience news stories.
