Nintendo Famicom NETWORK SYSTEM ADAPTER

Nintendo Famicom NETWORK SYSTEM ADAPTER

My sweet spot for obscure system peripherals continues. This time, we have the Famicom Network System Adapter, a modem for the Japanese Famicom that allowed the system to go online and download various news, jokes, and pre-internet miscellany. Interestingly enough, it also read a HuCard-like proprietary game format, allegedly to read cards containing online-enabled versions of popular Famicom games. I can't imagine online play over a Famicom worked terribly well, but the games were small enough in size that it could have been entirely possible. Not much functional use for it, but a great history piece for any historical collection or museum.
