Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Valve, now a member of The Linux Foundation, has initiated some ambitions projects: the SteamOS, a Linux operating system optimized for gaming, the Steam Machine, a gaming colsole that will run with SteamOS and the Steam Controller, a game controller specially designed for SteamOS and the Steam Machine. A demo video presenting the updated Steam Controller is available here.
While the release of the first Steam Machines have been scheduled for 2015, Valve has initiated yet another ambitious project, called SteamBoy, which is a portable PC with a 5 inch touchscreen surrounded by buttons and two trackpads, being similar to Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita. It has a design similar to Valve’s Steam Controller.
While there isn’t much information about the SteamBoy available, it will most likely have a quad-core CPU, 4 GB of RAM memory, 32 GB of internal memory, WiFi and 3G connectivity and most likely will be powered by SteamOS.
To make a better idea about the SteamBoy desing, see the below video teaser:
