Hacked up net enabled high definition Etch-A-Sketch


Jeri builds a 52 inch Etch A Sketch from a HD projection TV, tent poles, golf tee and gear reduced motors. Net enabled through Monty’s Ustream chat (IRC) robot control. Hours of fascinating fun for the entire internet!


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Damn you!
    I came here to buy something and got distracted watchin this video!

  2. Jeri always makes the neatest hacks. As to her question of whether or not it’s the largest, my sources say: possibly.

    There was a big etch-a-sketch thing at SIGGRAPH in 2006, but it appeared to be purely computer-driven (no mechanics at all).

    Also, I found references to a large etch-a-sketch built out of 144 smaller ones bolted together, but I couldn’t find a picture or details. Something tells me Jeri’s implementation is more elegant.
