Everyone remembers or at least knows about etch a sketch, and its amazing how few components are needed to create this extremely popular toy.


The two potentiometers control where the “cursor” is and the tilt sensor allows for the control to be shaken to clear the screen, just as with the real toy.

The graphic interface runs on Flash and can be controlled by a arduino board.
