Etch a Sketch
This is a Weekend project made with Tokymaker, an intuitive way for youngs and adults to learn the fundamentals of electronics, programming and solve problems creatively. If you don’t know what is it yet, follow the link and come back later!
We are a nostalgic crew. Wanted the epic Etch a Sketch so badly…
…that we had to make it ourselves!
Just a few rotation sensors and a tilt sensor was enough
- An intuitive hardware and software ecosystem to easily learn electronics, programming and creative problem solving. Capable of creating complex STEAM + IoT projects in 5 minutes with real Electronics & coding.
- It is for beginners, as proven by the community, which is very diverse in ages.
- Web enabled : no need of cables, software or plugins.
- Plug & Play electronics. Open Source.
- Cros platform (Smartphone, Tablet, PC, MacBook, Linux…)
A tilt sensor is an instrument that is used for measuring the tilt in multiple axes of a reference plane. Tilt sensors measure the tilting position with reference to gravity, and are used in numerous applications. They enable the easy detection of orientation or inclination.
The correct device to measure angle is called a rotary encoder. There are two kinds, absolute, or incremental. Absolute encoder output the actual position on the shaft, and are used to measure absolute angle.
