Available in MAKE: Volume 52, their writer Scott Dalton had the opportunity of a lifetime – he was allowed access to VALVE’s secret hardware prototyping laboratories, to take a look at how they built the HTC vive.  Yup, that’s VALVE’s handywork.

What he found, can only be described as awesome. From things like this:
