Peep this: The lovely evolution of Nintendo controllers

I could loop that catchy beat forever

This short, sweet look at Nintendo's controller design over the last quarter century, by Chris Koelsch, is probably a better way to waste 30 seconds than whatever you are doing. Unless you're knitting or doing sick kick flips off of cars on your skateboard. Incidentally, you should upload the latter onto Vimeo.

I wasted more than 30 seconds because I kept replaying it for that infectious beat, as well as the lively colors. RIP GameCube. It was built for fun.
