Coleco ColecoVision Expansion Module No. 2 (Driving Controller)

While visually very neat the Coleco ColecoVision Expansion Module No. 2 / AKA Driving Controller is a pretty unimpressive bit of tech. The wheel is attached to a slotted disc which passes through a photo sensitive switch linked to limited smarts that count the breaks in light as the disc turns and sends that to the ColecoVision; much like how a traditional ball mouse works.

The 'gas pedal' is a very disappointing on / off switch instead of an neat analogue controller.

The Driving Controller plugs into game pad port one leaving the second controller free for the player to start the games and make selections.

As the Driving Controller functioned the same way as the 'Roller Controller' and the wheel on the 'Super Action Controller' you really didn't need the Driving Controller if you had either of those.

The Expansion Module No. 2 was sold packed with the game 'Turbo' but was compatible with a number of other software titles such as 'Dukes of Hazard' and 'Destructor'.
