Brain fart

Brain farts? We all have them, don’t worry. Usually though it doesn’t go that fast from idea to exectution. In this case, it did. Worse, the brain fart was much longer than the time I needed to build it. Check this out!

I made a very simple Etch-A-Sketch (without the shaking, but with the knobs) using an Arduino, two variable resistors and the Adafruit GFX library. The wiring took about two minutes because I misplaced some wires, so I had to search and the code was about 46s.

Surprise, digital Etch-A-Sketch was born! Somebody probably allready did it, but I thought it was cool to demonstrate the ease with which you can prototype on this smart lil’ platform.
