Next Valve Index VR headset may be wireless Valve Index

Wireless Valve Index VR headsets could be on the way, if a recently granted patent in the US is anything to go by. The document details both a standalone device — like the Oculus Quest 2 — as well as a wireless version that would connect to an external device such as a PC.

There are three designs in total exploring the two ideas, showing that Valve is putting a lot of thought into comfort for future Index headsets. The models aren’t just wireless but include new methods for distributing heat and come with ergonomic features to make adjusting the device more simple.
