I've seen several of those units up for sale in the past. Basically, its a unit that was needed to hook controllers up to (I believe) Set4 Dreamcast Development kits. Basically, you'd hook up Sega Saturn controllers and use them instead of Dreamcast ones (since they hadn't designed them just yet).

All-in-all, completely useless unless you have a Set4 (except for collector's bragging status), and definitely not worth what its going for (considering I picked up a fully-functional Set5 (production development kit) for $250 including shipping).
