While I just figured out the Tecno Plus and Gamester CD-i peripherals including official third party controllers for CD-i, we got some pictures of another CD-i prototype controller by Logitech. Logitech is known by the CD-i community thanks to the designs of the CD-i touchpad and CD-i gamepad (pictures in this article). Both Philips products but they were built by Logitech. On the other hand, the trackball, mouse and roller controller were Philips products made by Kun Ying Enterprises (Genius). Now Logitech also produced a trackball for CD-i which never hit the retail market (at least, not in my neighbourhood ;)). CD-i member Erronous got his hands on an original prototype. According to Erronous this was actually in production, let me know if you have ever seen one.
Thanks to Erronous
