Your Steam-y Living Room

Valve Corporation is a video game developer and owner of the Steam video game distribution service, and they are after your living room. Valve brought us games like Team Fortress and the Half Life series. Announcements this week included a new category of device; a special kind of dedicated videogame computer:
Essentially, a Steam Machine is a personal computer based on SteamOS operating system and equipped with a gamepad or a different set of controller. Beginning in 2014, there will be multiple SteamOS machines with an array of specifications, price, and performance, made by different manufacturers. Since SteamOS will be available publicly and free, every experienced user will be able to design and build his or her own Steam Machine.
They also announced a funky new game controller/touchpad device to work with these Steam Machines:
