Please don't get tempted to start probing with a multimeter set on a resistance range to find out what it contains. If Toni is right and it contains an IC, then you will risk zapping it with the test voltage which will exist between the meter probes.
Alas no, it's a SOLID block. It's a little red cube, with a protruding 9-pins joystick-like plug which has to be inserted in joystick port 2 of the Amiga.
If I want to see the insides, I have to carefully "peel" the red plastic until I find something. It's like digging in an archaeological site
EDIT: don't worry, I will not probe its pins
