Valve makes VR access easy with their latest Steam beta

Not many of us have HMD’s (head-mounted display) like the Oculus Rift and the Rift, the leading headset of the VR craze, isn’t in full production mode yet. This has not stopped the folks at Valve from going experimental with virtual reality, as can be seen with their latest SteamBeta client release which now sports a “virtual reality mode” in the view menu for all to see.

The beta also offers a range of features which should make VR gaming much more user friendly, like the ability to hot-plug your HMD while steam is running, and also being able to switch between desktop and VR or Big Picture modes.

It seems like Valve will definitely be ready for the crop of virtual reality headsets that have just been announced.
