Valve employee Jeri Ellsworth says that the company is working on its first hardware product and that it is looking to enter beta in the next year. Working with the Steam “Big Picture Mode” team, the hardware people are looking to create a solution for those that want mouse and keyboard controls in the living room and those that want to primarily use a game pad.

“[Our goals are] to make Steam games more fun to play in your living room,” said Ellsworth.
