Description: The Atari 2700 (also referred to as the Atari Remote Control VCS) was an unreleased console by Atari, Inc.. Intended for release in 1981, its main standout features were wireless controllers that featured a combination of a joystick and paddle. The fire button was touch-sensitive, as were the buttons on the console. The Reset and Select buttons were relocated to the controllers themselves. The 2700 also featured a storage bin at the top of the console to store the controllers. Focus groups used to test the system noted that the controllers were comfortable, sleek, responsive, and very easy to use, but design problems caused the console to be withdrawn just as it was about to be released. The controllers had a working radius of 1000 ft; this meant the 2700 could affect nearby 2700s, as well as other remote controlled devices, such as garage doors and TVs. It is unclear how many of these systems exist today. Despite the 2700s failure, Atari released wireless controllers in 1983. However, to correct the interference problem, the controllers became bulky, hard to control, and had less battery life, which is why the controllers never became huge sellers.

The basic case design for the Atari 2700 was later used for the Atari 5200.
