Connect A Sketch is a modern take on the classic Etch A Sketch toy, connecting users via the Internet for a collaborative doodling experience. Using the machines, sketchers can log onto the Connect A Sketch website with a unique ID that position them on a map of the world. Users can then wirelessly link their device and choose from other IDs mapped out in front of them. Sharing one canvas, users can draw simultaneously, editing and adjusting the work together. When one user rubs out a sketch, on the other end the product will shake alerting the second user to rub their drawings out.
