Nintendo could have made a knitting accessory for the NES
Editor's Note: Huh. If this thing would have actually been released, my mother probably would have bought one.
A 1980's brochure was recently posted on Nintendo spokesman Howard Phillips' Facebook Fanpage wall. The broshure included a picture of a rumored knitting accessory for the NES.
The ad states:
Phillips says that former Nintendo president, Minoru Arakawa, asked him to pitch the machine to Toys R' Us chairman with only a 30 minute notice!
Below is a picture of the Knitting machine from the 80's broshure.
According to Philips, a piece of knitting software was released for the famicom and it was a hit in Japan. Philips explains:
Below is a video showing off some technology that could have been used by this accessory if it was released.
So let me know what you think g1s! Would you have bought this if it was released or is it just another edition to the NES accessory pile? Tell me in the comments below!

And yet Nintendo decided to present a heart-monitor instead? Darn.
I saw this on his FB page too. Interesting peripherals indeed.
I remember seeing this in that "obscure Mario game" list. It certainly is a unique device.

Only one word comes to mind for this article, wut?
this is... GENIOUS!!
Huh....I could see gamers making gamer shirts. And then having fake replaca shirts for today's retro gamers.
Perfect for the old people with a Wii and arthritis.
If it could knit sweaters, that could actually be kind of useful. I don't think any gamers would've wanted or needed it, but it may have given others a reason to get an NES. If I could get a Kirby sweater...
This would probably just end up being one of those rare and expensive accessories to collect like miracle piano. I'd love to see Pat the Nes Punk get he hands one of these.
