ColecoVision Roller Controller

CBS ColecoVision Roller Controller

Autopsy:

from Wikipedia:

Coleco prototyped a fourth expansion module intended to provide compatibility with Mattel’s Intellivision, but this was never released.

Two controller expansions were also available. First was the Roller Controller, a trackball packaged with a port of the arcade game Slither, a Centipede clone and meant to be used with some dedicated games like Victory or to enhance the gameplay of previously published cartridges which benefitted from its trackball system (like Wargames).

The second was the Super Action Controller Set, resembling a pair of boxing gloves each with joystick and numeric keypad on top and a series of buttons along the grip. It came with the game Super Action Baseball and saw later release of the Rocky Super Action Boxing, and a port of Front Line.

ColecoVision Super Action Controller

My daughter tried to play with the big joystick

Autopsy:

from Vintagecomputing:

ColecoVision Super Action ControllerAnd you thought video game controllers were over-complicated these days; this one requires five (slightly-pudgy child) hands just to use it properly.

Take a look at this bad boy: four trigger buttons on the pistol-like grip (one per finger), twelve buttons in the overlay-friendly numeric keypad matrix on top, a one-dimensional “speed roller” wheel near the back, and an extremely flaccid red-knobbed joystick crowning it all.

Combine this with the futuristic look of a gaudy black space gauntlet that literally engulfs your hand, and you’ve got the ColecoVision Super Action Controller.

This marvel of controlling technology came in sets of two with a “Super Action Game” included — Super Action Baseball or Rocky Super Action Boxing.

CBS ColecoVision Atari 2600 Expansion modules

ColecoVision Atari 2600 Expansion modules

Autopsy:

from Wikipedia:

Expansion modules, from its introduction, Coleco had touted a hardware add-on called the Expansion Module #1 which made the ColecoVision compatible with the industry-leading Atari 2600. Functionally, this gave the ColecoVision the largest software library of any console of its day.

The expansion module prompted legal action from Atari, but Atari was unable to stop sales of the module because the 2600 could be reproduced with standard parts. Coleco was also able to design and market the Gemini game system which was an exact clone of the 2600, but with combined joystick/paddle controllers.
