Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI) is pleased to announce that it has completed the integration of Valve's SteamVR driver with the Vuzix Video iWear Headphones. Steam is the world's largest online gaming platform with over 65 million players around the world. This integration marks a significant advancement in Vuzix' iWear platform and materially increases the content base for our customers.

SteamVR opens up over 300 VR titles for the iWear Headphones. Steam has an impressive arsenal of online and downloadable games available, which creates another compelling attraction of the Vuzix iWear Video Headphones.

With SteamVR on the iWear Video Headphones, gamers will see and experience their VR games in HD-3D. Head-tracking technology allows the action to move where their head moves. With support for hands-free control, the gamer can just nod to begin playing, with no controller input required. Moreover, most games are compatible with the latest available game controllers.

"By adding SteamVR support to our iWear Video Headphones, we open up a new world of games for our customers," said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Vuzix. "This makes it very compelling not only for distribution partners around the globe, but vastly gives our end-users another reason to embrace Vuzix technology. We had already begun to build a compelling library of game titles, but with SteamVR, we have expanded that library geometrically."
