NEWS: Check Out This Unique Etch A Sketch Camera
Martin Fitzpatrick has built one of the most interesting cameras we’ve ever seen: one that displays the captured image by drawing it on an Etch a Sketch.
The camera, dubbed the Etch-A-Snap, was built using a Raspberry Pi Zero attached to a digital camera and stepper motors and seated in a 3D-printed frame with gears that turn the Etch A Sketch knobs. Each image is converted to a 240 x 144 pixel file (that’s about .034 megapixels for those keeping track at home) with a 1-bit colour profile (meaning every pixel is either black or white).
