About

ProSteer is the world’s first analog, handheld steering controller that gives you highly accurate, unmatched steering control. Utilizing Boxed Arc technology and Multi Single Axis Control, ProSteer is a 3-in-1 controller that provides mechanical steering with centralizing torque and haptic feedback. 

Whether on a PC or Android device, you can now race like a professional… all from your couch!

It’s finally here — the key to true handheld analog steering. And it all starts with a simple hinged rectangle.

ProSteer is moved through 80 degrees of turn, which creates an arc. This boxed arc action creates a virtual central axel that your hands rotate around. Analog potentiometers read every minute change in the angle, providing maximum accuracy and control.

This patent-pending technology replicates the path of a small steering wheel, giving you authentic steering control.

For racing games or any game genre, you can now have nearly 4 times the accuracy of a standard gamepad. Gamepad analog sticks provide you with 22 degrees of X (left/right) axis, but the ProSteer offers 80 degrees. So you will enjoy accuracy of turn, touch and precision at an unprecedented 4x boost!!!

MSAC is what makes ProSteer a genuine 3-in-1 game controller with the ability to switch modes at any time.

Enjoy the winning control of analog steering with 80-degree authentic, mechanical steering.

ProSteer successfully achieves analog steering with no fixed point. Centralizing torque and haptic feedback provide for the most realistic, authentic steering experience with maximum touch and control!

My name is Phil Croft, and I am the founder of BoxDark and the inventor of ProSteer. As a seasoned racing gamer, I became so sick of thumb stick steering; the lack of authentic control was frustrating. As the games became more realistic and sophisticated, this problem worsened! I could not buy and house a large racing wheel set up and so began searching for a better handheld steering solution. My lap times and racing performance had stalled as I languished with a standard gamepad.

One night while I was watching Steve Jobs give a MacWorld Keynote speech, the Boxed Arc for ProSteer idea flashed through my mind! I quickly made some drawings to confirm what I thought was perfect handheld steering with no fixed point! That was how the Articulated Gaming Controller (ProSteer) was born.

We can’t thank you enough for checking out our project and helping us make ProSteer a reality. 

We know not everyone will be able to support us with a pledge, so even if you can’t give a dollar or purchase ProSteer, you can help us spread the word on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, Instagram and anywhere else you can think of!
