Etch a sketch fans know that what the world needs is a connected version of the famous toy. And now it appears that they have one. Andrew Little came up with the idea, wanting to connect with others while he toiled away vertically and horizontally, creating works of art. It is called Connect A Sketch and basically he modified a pair of Etch A Sketches to make them work together. A wireless version is of course on the way.
The end game here is that users could log on to the Connect A Sketch website with a unique user ID and then be able to interact, even work together on artwork. Users can even draw on the Etch A Sketch at the same time, leave messages etc. Maybe even give somebody elses work of art a good shake to clear it, though that would be rude. It’s a great idea and a great way to get kids to be creative.
