Brother Develops HD Sewing Machine

Brother QuattroT 6000D

If you’re still watching TV in standard definition, think about wha Brother have developed. They have just announced the world’s first sewing machine with a built-in camera to display your work on an “HD” screen.

The QuattroT 6000D seems to have some good ideas. 56 LEDs illuminate the sewing platform while its “InnovEyeT Technology” provides a bird’s eye view of the needle, which can be enlarged for a better view of precision work. Plus, the camera allows the fabric to be auto-positioned (with the help of a sensor positioning sticker) for automatic embroidery.

The screen itself, by Sharp, is a 32-(square)-inch display with 260,000 colors. It’s not quite gameday ready, but we’re sure that it tracks a mean cross stitch.

No word on price at the moment, but we may see more of the QuattroT 6000D at CES should we lose a button or become bored by endless rows of cameras and TVs.

  1. Wow! You have to be kidding me. 🙂

  2. If I still sewed (yes, I used to make all of my clothes as well as the curtains in the house), I would love one of these.

  4. This I like … specially when the eyesight isn’t what it has been – think it’s a brilliant idea – .. but don’t like Brother’s machines – have to see what Singer comes up with to match this. Also useful when a lot of material is in the way … but I think you have to use the sawing machine a lot for it to pay.

  5. While it may seem “over the top” and quite a bit in the new toy category, there may be some good uses for this. I am legally blind, and sewing accurately can be quite a challenge!
