Ohhhh my goodness. The Consollection graphic (previously) has been updated to include more game systems with added detail and is now finally a print which you can purchase and hang in the most prominent part of your household.
170 videogame systems are shown as miniatures in chronological order. Every system is presented with name, manufacturer and release date. A nice overview over 38 years of videogame-history.
As usual, great infographic work from Good in collaboration with Column Five. Hm, I bet you could hide a lot of weapons of mass destruction down there. The US might need to permanently investigate that. (via coudal)
In response to yesterday’s news about the CTA potentially selling naming rights to train lines and stops I decided to take a stab (with the help of too many of you to list here—thank you!) at imaging what our transit system might look like in just a few short years. Click the map below for detail, and just hit escape to exit. See an update below.
Update: Thanks everyone for the spirited comments and feedback on this map! Awesome! I would just like to emphasize that I put the whole thing together very quickly, late at night. It certainly isn’t perfect in that despite having lived here for a decade there are many neighborhoods and stops I know nothing about. In some cases I selected the nearest business (via google maps) or just made something up totally random. The point being, who knows what would happen? What if Five Guys outbid Loyola? I don’t think we’ll get to decide, it’s just going to happen. Thanks for stopping by Colossal.
This image by Stefanie Posavec represents all of the sentences in On the Road by Jack Kerouac. Each line is organized according to the number of words per sentence, and the sentences are color-coded according to theme. This is only one of many killer infographics in Posavec’s Writing Without Words series in which she attempts to visually organize the language of books. Prints available. (via we find wildness)
