And Now, The Periodic Table of Game Controllers

And Now, The Periodic Table of Game Controllers

 /></p>
<p>Inspired by the <a https://www.gizmodo.com.au/2009/03/the_periodic_table_of_typefaces-2/Periodic Table of Typefaces, Flickr artist Pixel Fantasy decided to chart out the jungle of game controller button configurations into a similarly geekgasm-inducing chart. It’s mighty pretty in high-res.


I like the choice to omit the actual shell of the controllers themselves, opting instead to focus on the button arrangement, floating ghostlike without any housing. I also kind of like that this is overlaid on a what may be the back of a Waffle House paper placemat.

Attention designers: please continue to chart interesting thigns using the schema of the periodic table. [Flickr via Technabob]
