Singer IZEK Gameboy Controlled Sewing Machine!

Lawks-a-lawdy! Would you believe it? In the year 2000, sewing machine giants Singer, teamed up with Nintendo, to produce a revolutionary piece of tailoring equipment. The Singer IZEK was compatible with the Gameboy, which came bundled with the machine!

The Gameboy could be utilised to create stitch designs, which could then be automatically read and copied by the machine! Clever stuff eh? This is perhaps the most obscure piece of gaming technological linkage that I can think of! the Gameboy camera and printer was good, the Gameboy MP3 well ahead of its time, but the Gameboy sewing machine peripheral? Genius!

I found out about this on the rather wonderful Retro Thing. I suggest you nip over and take a peek!

  1. An absolutely amazing find father! Who would have thought? Singer and Nintendo doing ..uh.. stuff together...

  2. I have this. Its a great sewing machine, but the Game boy thing isn't that big of a deal. It does a lot of stitches,a nd does them well, but I have never used more than the straight stitch and zig-zag! HAHAHA!
