I followed up to be absolutely clear, asking, "The demo being shown does not represent a prototype or indicate any plan for a new Portal?" Lombardi replied, "Correct. Just a demo." So no, this isn't Portal 3. It's just a tech demo until we know more—and I suspect Valve is just having fun with some existing art. Tyler Wilde on PCGamer

I’m heading off for bed now, sorry that updates to the liveblog and Twitter will pause for a few hours until another SteamDB admin can fill in; it looks like ValveTime will have some updates of the upcoming VR talk, so do follow them.

The folks at Road to VR did a pretty awesome liveblog of Valve's "Advanced VR Rendering" panel. Check it out!
