The Big Steel Battalion Box (B.S.B.B. Mk II)

The Big Steel Battalion Box (B.S.B.B. Mk II)

The “Big Steel Battalion Box” is an immersion cockpit for the mech simulation game Steel Battalion (Xbox, 2002), equipped with custom environmental stimuli and an external monitoring/coaching station.

No gaming experience required; anyone can drive a giant a giant robot in the B.S.B.B.

What inspired you to make this project?:
That's a long story, but put simply — I was inspired to take the vision, concept, and sprit behind the original Steel Battalion video game controller as far as possible!

Also, the shared experience of trying to play the game for the first time with a friend, one of us at the controls, the other frantically flipping through the 50+ page manual trying to be helpful.
