It is a Mouse Systems Bogeyman. I am not sure what the connector is.

You leave yourself open to all sorts of answers by asking "what can i do with it?"...
it's an old Game Port connector - does your machine have one?
It's not much use other than as a game-stick, unless you need some switches.

If you're a builder, you could strip it for all the goodies it contains. Has a pair of decent pots, a few good buttons, a few useful mechanical components, and some usable wiring.
