The Evolution fo Wireless Game Controllers

Really enjoyed this post about wireless controllers over on Hackaday.

“There is perhaps no better way to relive the evolution of wireless controllers than through the marketing campaigns that grew up around them. To that end, we close today with some of the ads that trumpeted this march of technology.”

Check out the Game Mate 2 advertisement. Just a wonderful reminder that sometimes it’s about the technology, sometimes it’s about the marketing, sometimes it’s about both. Whether or not the technology has immediate practical application, extraneous business decisions might push forward a technology that isn’t quite ready.
