Apple Boss Visits Valve, Valve Planning Wearable Computer With "Terminator Vision," Which Means...

By Gary Cutlack on at

Well, it could mean anything. The first alleged fact is that Apple's new boss Tim Cook was recently spotted meeting with senior members of Valve, the game developer at the centre of constant rumours regarding an entry into the hardware world.

And that's only the half of it. In a possibly separate or perhaps even linked development, Valve team member Michael Abrash posted a sprawling personal update, in which he claimed the company is researching the concept of "wearable computing" systems, which sound a little like Google's totally mad Google Glasses augmented reality thing.

Abrash claimed: "By 'wearable computing' I mean mobile computing where both computer-generated graphics and the real world are seamlessly overlaid in your view; there is no separate display that you hold in your hands (think Terminator vision)."

So, if we combine the two rumours into one MEGA-RUMOUR, we get to the idea of Apple launching some sort of Valve-powered virtual reality wearable gaming system in the very distant future. Imagine that. [Valve and Cnet]
