Pop Chart Lab has released a print poster that shows the evolution of video game controllers in an easy-to-understand graphical family tree. The chart features 119 ‘species’ and 11 ‘genera’ over a span of seven decades in gaming. The 11 family genera include Gamepad, Flip Switch, Light Gun, Trackball, Racing Wheel and Numberpad. Viewers can easily track the current Wii Fitness Board to its ‘ancestor’ in the 1980s, which was the Exus Foot Craz. And the newest Playstation and Xbox game controllers all extend from the 1970s Radofin 1292 controller.

The print is 24″ x 36″ and the first 1000 edition sold will be signed and numbered by the artists. The high-quality print is eco-friendly and is made using 100 lb. archival certified recycle stock and is pressed with vegetable-based inks in Brooklyn, New York.
