First Computerized Home Sewing Machine
OPUS-8 (1979)

The OPUS-8 was the industry’s first computerized home sewing machine. Equipped with a built-in microcomputer to control the movement of the needle and the feed dog, this machine was able to sew more complicated and various patterns. The microcomputer also contributed greatly to enhancing the functionality and operability of this machine, enabling it to run at four levels of speed. This product, designed with the concept of beginner friendly, revolutionized the world of sewing enormously.
