Technological Advancements: Etch-a-Sketch to go Digital

It still boggles my mind that we can develop amazing technology, but still have yet to put a man on the moon. Oh wait, we have? Well, then maybe it's the Etch-a-Sketch that is slow to get with the program and bring itself into the 21st century, until now. The Wired Etch-a-Sketch is the digital variant of the classic toy entertaining children for the past few decades.

The TV Etch-a-Sketch system takes the classic toy to the next level by allowing for a wide variety of modes to be used including Cool Drawing Tools, Trace A Pic, Super Sketch and Connecting the Dots. The controller that features the two classic Etch-a-Sketch knob still gives the toy its feel from decades prior.

Don't worry, one of the best parts of the original Etch-a-Sketch is still integrated. Shake the controller and yes, the screen will clear. I'm glad that feature was included or this product would be a travesty of my childhood. It is available for $13.
