But wait there's more
http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamMachines/



Steam Machines
A powerful new category of living-room hardware is on the horizon. Join the hardware beta now. Choose the model right for you in 2014.

View the Steam Machines announcement page.


Finally, a multiple choice answer
Entertainment is not a one-size-fits-all world. We want you to be able to choose the hardware that makes sense for you, so we are working with multiple partners to bring a variety of Steam gaming machines to market during 2014, all of them running SteamOS.

But first, Valve’s prototype
While these products are still in development, we need your help. As always, we believe the best way to ensure that the right products are getting made is to let people try them out and then make changes as we go. We have designed a high-performance prototype that’s optimized for gaming, for the living room, and for Steam. Of course, it’s also completely upgradable and open.

This year we’re shipping just 300 of these boxes to Steam users, free of charge, for testing. You can make yourself eligible to get one. How? Read on!

Here’s how to participate
Want to make yourself eligible to participate in the beta? Add yourself to the list of candidates by completing the Eligibility Quest on Steam. Sound hard? It’s not.

THE HARDWARE BETA ELIGIBILITY QUEST:
Before October 25, log in to Steam and then visit your
quest page
to track your current status towards beta test eligibility
1. Join the
Steam Universe
community group
2. Agree to the
Steam Hardware Beta Terms and Conditions

3. Make 10 Steam friends (if you haven't already)
4. Create a public Steam Community profile (if you haven't already)
5. Play a game using a gamepad in
Big Picture mode


You can complete the steps in any order. Once you’ve completed all of the steps, you’ll be awarded a special badge, and you’ll officially be among the pool of people from whom we’ll choose beta participants / hardware recipients.

On October 25th, the list will be locked. So complete the quest before then!

Your help is critical to our design process. Your feedback will shape both the new OS version of Steam and the new category of gaming machines that will run it.

Visit the
Frequently Asked Questions
page for even further information.

That is a nifty control pad. I am not sold 100% but I like they are trying something different. It could be the next best controller, who knows? 16 buttons sounds insane, but that is great.
