Most Complicated Controller Ever

ColecoVision Super Action Controller

And here’s me thinking the was confusing enough. Vintage Computer & Gaming have posted what has to be the most complicated game controller ever created. The controller in question? It has to be the ColecoVision Super Action Controller of course. The controller boasts an over overwhelming 16 buttons, a wheel mouse and a joystick. Aside from having an extensive plethera of buttons and an extremely awkward layout, there seems to be some redundant features going on. What possible use could the “speed roller” wheel have?

Was anyone luckily enough to own of these beauties? Did it control as terrible as it looked?
