iQue; Looking for info, discussion, etc.

So I got this book off the Kindle Store - ConsoleGamer's History of the Nintendo 64. Typos galore but has a lot of interesting information in it. The thing that intrigued me most was seeing the iQue player and its extra controllers. If anyone can provide a picture for me that would be great because I'm not good with posting photos on this message board.

The way the controller works is interesting to me in light of the N64 mini being a potential release. I know I should probably let it go and just expect an original N64 controller replica with a Wii Remote attachment, but I just can't get past how many issues it has (controversial three-prong design, stick that wears out easy). I had at first thought of the hori controller as a possible revision, but then I saw the design of the iQue and its controllers. It has a much more traditional look to it while still having all the buttons an N64 controller needs. My one concern is that it may look a touch too big - we wouldn't want to relive the early days of the original Xbox.

So my question for you is, does anybody in this forum have experience with the iQue? Have you tried the controller and how does it feel in your hands? But also, are there any other interesting bits of trivia about the iQue that maybe haven't become common knowledge yet. If the book I had is true, the game downloading service surprisingly only ended in 2016.
It must be exciting to never have played a Zelda game before - No64DD

I've been watching so many Japanese videos lately I got recommended this today, a Japanese man talking about how ique was perceived by Chinese gamers and during the console ban in that country (It has English subtitles)

The original version came from here

Dont let the title turn you off, its actually a very nice video and the man praises ique for what it tried to do during the China console ban and being a trailblazer despite not being as well received as one might imagine. As somebody who knows very little about ique, I found this quite informative.
