PopChartLab created this compendium of audio recording and playing devices over time. It’s pretty comprehensive. However, I think PopChartLab is on the verge of becoming the Buzzfeed of infocharts: pointless compiled lists of cartoonized objects. Cocktail Chart of Film and Literature?!? Fictional Beers?!? Nebula of NES Games?! Shark jumped.

An addictive collection of beautiful charts, graphs, maps, and interactive data visualization toys -- on topics from around the world.
