Because Etch A Sketch is still a relevant form of creative diversion for many, design student Andrew Little did the medium a favor with his Connect A Sketch project. The whole point is rather than work all by your lonesome, why not reach out to a collaborator and together produce a kickass drawing?
To date the Connect A Sketch is still in its conceptual phase and the only existing prototype are two hacked Etch A Sketch’s with connectors. Andrew’s ultimate goal is to create a website where users can log in to find like minded Connect A Sketch enthusiasts. When this will all come together, we honestly don’t know.
A few words from Mr. Little:
We all love to leave personal messages for one another, be it productive or playful, Connect A Sketch was designed to take this interaction to a larger scale. The reason I chose to do this through an Etch A Sketch is because of my appreciation of the toy I grew up with.
It’s a good idea Little man. Hehe.
