And Now, The Periodic Table of Game ControllersS

Inspired by the 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]
