World's First High Definition, Net-Enabled Etch A Sketch for Giants

Using the front screen of 52-inch rear-projection Mitsubishi TV as their drawing board, here's a fully-working Etch A Sketch that can hopefully be controlled by doodlers over the Internet some day soon.

Besides the backlit TV, makers Fatman and Circuit Girls also use $US9 Harbor Freight drills for the twisty knobs, screen-door pulleys and tent poles to control the creation of the illustrations from the backside, some aluminium powder used in the normal-sized Etch A Sketch as "ink" and a golf tee as a stylus. I wish I understood her directions on how to actually put the giant toy together, but I guess I'll just have to wait for its net-enabling to come into fruition. [Fatman and Circuit Girl via ]
