Joystick like 3D Animation controls

I noticed this thing for After Effects
and wasn't sure if it exists in 3D applications. I've seen allot of 3D animation control sliders but no "joystick" style controllers which IMO seems like a step forward.
For comparison one of the more complex items i've seen is this:

Anim school rig which i'm not sure is native to the 3D application used or a plugin they created. Even their rig doesn't have the "joystick" style controls.
