Brisbane, Australia – Gamers start those engines and get those controllers ready, because BoxDark Industries is changing the game with the introduction of ProSteer, the first handheld analog steering controller. ProSteer launched today on Kickstarter to bring unmatched accuracy and complete steering control to gamers.
ProSteer has revolutionized mechanical handheld steering with centralized torque and haptic feedback. The result is a controller that perfects the driver’s turn accuracy, scope of control and steering precision.
“There’s been tremendous growth in game consoles and games themselves, but there’s a huge lag in the controllers we use to play those games,” said Phil Croft, CEO of BoxDark Industries. “Whether playing Project Cars 2 or a friendly game of Mario Kart, ProSteer’s technology will unlock the competitive spirit in every driver and give them the edge they need to succeed.”
ProSteer uses patent-pending Boxed Arc Technology to provide true analog steering that allows the driver’s hands to rotate around a virtual central axel. The 80 degrees of turn around that axel replicates the path of a small steering wheel, eliminating the need for large, expensive racing wheel setups. Removing the fixed point needed in other steering controllers, ProSteer’s centralizing torque feature gives a realistic, true steering experience from the comfort of a favorite chair or sofa.
Patent-pending Multi Single Axis Control makes ProSteer the ultimate three-in-one game controller that is perfect for a variety of uses. The first mode is analog steering via articulation. The second mode is rapid strafe aiming via articulation. It provides the best control, and most rapid targeting available for first-person shooter games. This mode also provides competitive gameplay advantages for other game genres, including MMO and MOBA. The third mode is a standard 13-button and two analog stick gamepad without articulation. This basic mode allows gamers to use ProSteer to enjoy any game in a standard controller format without the need for additional controllers.
Analog triggers with 35 degrees of linear draw and haptic feedback vibrations help accurately simulate a variety of scenarios, including pressing a brake pedal, running on rough terrain, shooting an automatic rifle, or crashing a car. ProSteer connects via Bluetooth, and is compatible with PCs and Android smartphones. ProSteer offers a three-hour (gaming) battery life and is powered by Lithium ion batteries, and connects via USB-C connection. ProSteer is
available to pre-order starting at $99 for the earliest backers. To pre-order, visit pr.go2.fund/prosteer.
