I don't know how to phrase this piece of CD-i hardware. Is it a prototype like this one? Was it for professional usage? Has it been used for some CD-i kiosk systems? Who will tell? As far as I know this controller was never sold for the consumer market, and it looks like a custom built type for special applications. The pictures are courtesy of 'Retro Man' who is a CD-i collector himself and explains how he got it: "A while ago I bought the inventory of a company whose task was in CD-i implementations. Along with a big pile of CD-i software, I got some professional CD-i players (new in box), development sets, Logitech Rollerballs for CD-i, new Digital Video Cartridges and more, like this big red 'saucer' remote control and a wooden CD-i Train." Whoever can tell us more about where it was used for, Interactive Dreams is very interested to find out!
