Famicom Titler — Jean Snow [.net]

Just look at this gorgeous machine. Released in 1989 by Sharp, only in Japan, its purpose was to allow better video capture of Famicom (NES) games. Read more about its history in and use in this Kotaku post. I mostly lust for those controllers with the big “1” and “2” graphics on them.

Kudos to Jean Snow for sharing this from Kotaku website. I love little obscure product back channels where engineers worked really hard on a product that got little marketing or sales. It’s beautiful to look at, but the idea that people would want to record their game play on Famicom is very interesting.
