​The Newest Steam Controller, Detailed

Seems like Valve's Steam Controller has been evolving since the minute they first showed it to us. The latest version adds more conventional face buttons along with the big, already-iconic touchpads. It's being put through its paces at GDC this week. Let's see how this puppy performs, shall we?

The video above comes from tech/cool stuff blog Tested and features Valve's Scott Dalton running down the functionality of and changes to the Steam Controller. Dalton says that the current prototypes have been 3D-printed and built by hand. They also feature customizable haptics options so players can get the feedback that works best for them. It's a fairly deep dive into a gamepad unlike any other, so if you're curious about what Valve's trying to accomplish, do watch the whole thing.
