Pop Chart Lab's The Evolution of Controllers

Video games have changed quite a bit over the years. Graphics have gotten from blocky to photo-realistic. The device used to control the on-screen action has changed quite a bit as well. Pop Chart Lab chronicles the game controller advances from 1972 to 2010 in poster form.

The sticks-and-buttons controllers introduced in the ’70s have given way to motion-based devices like the Wii remote and PlayStation Move. Pop Chart Lab’s design is tremendous but I’d like to see at least a nod to the latest evolution—the controller-less Xbox Kinect.
