    I honestly cannot look at the damn thing.

    It looks like a friggin' Hitachi Magic Wand.

      Is that ball even part of the control, or something in the background?

        The ball is like a motion capture ball, it is needed it is what gives the controller perfect 1:1 mapping of everything you do with it. The ball has an LED in it and will change or light depending on the effect, for example Sony have used a shooter as an example when shooting the LED might flash a bright yellow to simulate a muzzle flash.

        The ball doesn't bother me at all, especially when you understand how much better it is because of it. It basically means that no matter the lighting of your room it's going to pick up the motion.
