Mr. Tines: This is the one and only time that an Eva gets to play in the Holodeck/Danger Room. And one of the few times an Eva is active outside of a combat situation.
Soluzar: Two reasons, in my mind, Tines-san: First, there is the cost (to Nerv) of each activation, and second, it's not exactly riveting TV.
Reichu: Considering EVA-01 is really standing in this bland testing facility, the cockpit's visuals are clearly coming from the computer simulation. (Yet another hint as to the entirely mechanical, as opposed to neurological, origin of the screen input.)
