On January 15 and 16, Valve is holding a special event. I'm not invited. You're probably not, either.
It's called "Steam Developer Days," and it's a two-day conference designed to showcase Valve's upcoming living-room-centric PCs, the Steam Machines. During the conference, which will feature guest speakers from companies like AMD, Oculus, and Nvidia, attendees will get to test out Valve's hardware initiative, which includes a bizarre new controller and Linux-based PCs designed to be used on a big-screen TV.
