Valve has opened up their Steamworks virtual reality (VR) API and posted the code to GitHub.

Since yesterday Valve Software has opened up the source code to the Steamworks VR API to make it easier for debugging and experimenting with new forms of VR hardware.

This code comes just one month after Valve published beta VR support for the Oculus Rift and other virtual reality devices with Steam. VR was one of the big themes talked about at January's Steam Dev Days and will play a big role within SteamOS and Steam Machines.

The Valve Steamworks VR API source code can be found via this GitHub repository.
