Hack a Sketch – Computer based Etch a Sketch

at 4:07 pm. Filed under Computer Hacks, Electronic Hacks, Game Hacks


The guys over at the Project Lab have made a cool Computer based Etch a Sketch project called Hack a Sketch. Looks like it works just like a real one. This project is basically the reverse of this Etch a Sketch hack that we have seen before.

Thanks for the tip Jack.

"An Arduino board reads the inputs from two potentiometers (the knobs), and sends the information via USB to a Processing sketch which displays the path of the stylus on the screen. This was extremely easy to build because the Arduino is just running the StandardFirmata firmware."
