iPad Gets Etch A Sketch Makeover
'Etcher' case turns your iPad into a functional Etch A Sketch

My fondest memory of the Etch A Sketch is erasing my sisters finest piece of etched work – a giant panda bear. One shake and it disappeared forever; a task not so easily accomplished with the new Etcher or Etch A Sketch case for iPad, which provides effective protection against such callous sibling behaviour.

The iPad case with fully-functioning plastic knobs, works in much the same way as the original, but the difference is that the doddle you create on screen will be in digital form rather than physical. Etcher will still erase the screen when shook but instead of the image disappearing forever, it can be saved onto the ipad or shared online.There is even the option to create a time-lapse video showing your drawing coming to life one knob-twiddle at a time. 

The device may be an accurate recreation of the original Etch A Sketch right down to the bright red-colored case, but what isn’t comparable is the price. It will set you back US$60 compared to a real Etch A Sketch that can be bought for around $13. That’s on top of actually needing an iPad in the first place.

If nothing else, it is sure to bring back some wonderful childhood memories.
