    Automated Etch-a-Sketch Uses 3D Printing to Make Art Possible

    Hacker and maker Evan Long has put a serious spin on the Etch-a-Sketch for enthusiasts of the retro toy, as well as for those enthusiastic about hacking, 3D printing — and producing amazing artwork. With Arduino software, some simple hardware, and a bit of 3D printing, you can rev your Etch-a-Sketch up quickly, following her example. Long created an Etch-a-Sketch version of the Mona Lisa as an example of what her hacking concept can create. Check it out over at the full article: http://3dprint.com/41841/etch-a-sket...printed-parts/


    Below is a photo of the setup for the Mona Lisa sketch with everything wired up:

    This looks like a hoot. Didn't know they still made Etch-a-Sketches.

    Sigh. Why can't people leave the perfect toy alone. There is no need to automate an etch-a-sketch. IMHO, there are certain things that need to be left alone. This is one of them. And I don't need an improved slinky either. Childhood memories should NOT be messed with.
