Valve's Michael Abrash, formerly of Microsoft and id Software, is currently working on "wearable computing" prototypes for the behemoth developer.

In a blog post on the official Valve website, Abrash explained that he has been working on what he believes to be "the most valuable thing I could do at Valve," with computer-generated graphics that are seamlessly overlaid in your view, similar to Google's recently revealed Project Glass.

"The underlying trend as we've gone from desktops through laptops and notebooks to tablets is one of having computing available in more places, more of the time," Abrash explained.

The industry veteran believes that this interface, through glasses or contact lenses, will be available "almost certainly" within the next 10 years.
