Nintendo Knitting Machine Peripheral for NES?
The Nintendo Knitting Machine was a peripheral prototyped for the NES in the late 1980s. An Nintendo employee working from 1981 to 1991, "Gamemaster" Howard Phillips, shared this photo of a brochure on his Facebook page. proving that the long rumored prototype did indeed exist. Apparently, Phillips gave a demonstration to the chairman of Toys R Us which he described as "Likely one of my least enthusiastic demos."

You're looking at the Nintendo Knitting Machine. It's not a game; not a toy; not something a young girl can outgrow in three or six months or even a year. It's a machine that interacts with the powerful Nintendo Entertainment System to actually knit sweaters: and not just one or two patterns but a multitude of different and unique designs. The Nintendo Knitting Machine is just one more example of the innovative thinking that keeps Nintendo on the cutting edge of video technology. And your customers on the edge of their seats. Of course we should probably mention that no other video game system offers anything even remotely similar. But why needle the competition?And so there is the text on the brochure, knitting pun and the rest. What do you think of this peripheral? Would you buy it? If so, how much would you pay for it?
