    Nintendo had some pretty obscure and unique accessories, but damn, how would this even work!?

    It's really too bad this was never offered to the public. If it was, maybe my grandmother would have something to do other than Windows XP solitaire.
    (Yes, it absolutely MUST be the XP version)

    It looks like they couldn't reap and sew any potential from this product.

    A product this outrageous is as rare as a needle in a haystack.

    Nintendo's R&D department really is a close knit community.

    I'm guessing there were a lot of strings attached.

    They were actually going to introduce a system similar to Sony's crossplay with this product called crosshatching.

    This thread is really silly.

    Well the FamiCom was Family Computer... and they did attempt to push office software at one point.

    Now only if we can get a rom of the software, and a third party makes the hardware for this then we got something.

    The Famicom disk system did in fact have software for designing your own sweaters, which you could have made too for a cost.

    I don't think the japanese sweater designing game had its own knitting peripheral though.
