French inventor André Cassagnes probably is best remembered for his wildly popular game Etch-a-Sketch.
That red plastic frame which supported the flat grey screen has become immortal in our minds and in pop culture in general. It is probably the most loved and cherished drawing toys that we have ever seen in the last century. Now, the humble Etch A Sketch has been given a sort of makeover with LEDs that make it look pretty futuristic.
LED Etch-a-Sketch has been created by electrical engineer Christopher Monaco and comes with 256 knob-controlled LED dots of light. You probably won’t be able to draw anything elaborate but the very fact that an old toy has been given an LED makeover must6 excite all those nerds out there who look for old toys in new packages.
Just like the original, you would need to shake the toy to erase whatever you have written and that shall surely bring back a lot of memories. You could also go ahead and take a look at the DIY Etch-a-Sketch Monitor that we had featured sometime ago. The NES Etch-a-Sketch is yet another device that was hugely popular and will appeal to Nintendo lovers who used the NES.
