Back a few decades and the talk of the kid’s playground would have been Etch-a-Sketch, the toy that made iron fillings and magnets the next big thing. Well years on and the Etch-a-Sketch has all but disappeared, apart from being an iPad case and this great looking LED Etch-a-Sketch. Check out the video to see it in action.

My LED Etch-a-Sketch is my first fully completed electronics project. When I first got into electronics, I was looking for a project to start with and while browsing on Sparkfun.com I came across LED matrices and I knew I wanted to work with them. I am not sure how the idea of an Etch-a-Sketch came about, but it seemed like a fun project a great learning opportunity.
