Jeri Ellsworth (who previously fashioned a totally superb, functioning NES purse) has cobbled together a gigantic Etch A Sketch using a 52-inch projection television, some tent poles, a golf tee and gear-reduced motors. The sketcher uses aluminum powder, just like in the traditional toy, and they plan on eventually enabling it for IRC bot control. Check the video after the break to see it in action, and get a glimpse of how it was constructed.
