Etch-A-Sketch coolness

Etch-A-Sketch clock
This is a video of an automated Etch-A-Sketch. It's an EAS that automatically draws out the time then erases itself, every minute. It's built on the Arduino platform.

Etch-A-Sketch artistry
See for the first time Etch A Sketch artist George Vlosich creating his one of a kind artwork. This five hour etch of LeBron James is sped up so that you can see every line he makes and step he takes to create a unique piece of pop art.

World's Largest Etch-A-Sketch
The World's Largest Etch-A-Sketch. All members of the audience were given a wand with two sides, one red and one green. Each side transmitted a signal, which was picked up by sensors on either side of the screen. To operate the Etch-A-Sketch each half of the theatre corresponded to one knob on the Etch-A-Sketch. For example, in order to draw a horizontal line from left to right, the whole left half of the theatre would have to wave the red side of their wand at the screen. The other half of the theatre was affecting the vertical moves.
