If you’ve ever stared vacantly at your controller thinking, ‘how did you get made?’ then this video has the answer.


In the video uploaded to YouTube by Valve, we see the complex process that goes into building their nifty little Steam Controllers. According to the video description, Valve were looking into ways to build their controllers, and ended up going overboard – building one of the largest automated assembly lines in the U.S. No kidding.

Valve launched their Steam Controller earlier this year in a bid to create something of a hybrid between console and PC gaming, gaining a lot of positive reviews for their efforts.


Thankfully, there are still some humans kicking around to make sure the robots don’t become sentient and go all SkyNet on us. But let’s be honest, if they wanted to overpower their puny human masters, they easily could.
