Nerdy gamers can now use this Periodic Table of Controllers. Although this table may seem clear to some, it makes absolutely no sense to me!

Created by flickr user Pixel Fantasy, the Periodic Table of Controllers is supposedly the final version.

Other geeky gaming innovations like these will be soon be available on t-shirts, for a more portable instruction key.

Implications - Though the nerd was once considered a lonely, creepy creature to be avoided at all costs, the rise of technology has redefined the term entirely. Nerds are now revered as the smart, tech-savvy, pop culture connoisseurs that will probably rule the world one day, which signifies a shift in what's cool.
