The QuickJoy TopStar is a digital joystick for the VIC 20, C64, C128 and Amiga made by the company Spectravideo. Spectravideo was originally specializing in video games for Atari and Coleco, but they soon jumped on the home computer wave with the Spectravideo SV-318. The SV-318 really stood out from the crowd with its red joystick. They also made the world's first ergonomic joystick, the Quickshot, which was a huge success all over the world. It was followed by a number of other variations, all using the Quickshot brand. Spectravideo later joined Microsoft in creating a world standard for home computers, called MSX.
