Sometimes the worst part about a new piece of gaming hardware is the lack of games and apps for it, but Valve seems to want to change that with the release of several VR "experiments." This set of demos, dubbed "The Lab," will be unveiled at the Game Developers Conference next week (March 14-18). Set in a "pocket universe of Aperture Science," the world of Portal, the demos will be able to show off different features of the Steam Vive VR headset, like 360 degree room tracking.

While not necessarily full-fledged games, software like this will help buyers test the new hardware and allow developers to get a better feel for what's possible in the realm of VR. But with the Vive costing $799, Valve had better come out with some games that will prevent this new technology from only living a half life.
