The Battletech was a games unit based on the Amiga 500 (at least the early versions) and was once placed in the Virtual Worlds Hall in London's Trocadero. It's a full enclosing cabinet in which you sit, staring at a large screen in front of you, representing the view from a Battlemech cockpit. You controlled the Battlemech by using a joystick, some foot pedals and some touch sensitive buttons on a status screen.
Please see the A500.
