A Technological Take on a Fave Childhood Toy, the Etch A Sketch

Itch a Skitch

Tech meets one of our favorite childhood toys with Itch A Skitch, a just-for-fun website with an HTML5-powered Etch A Sketch clone that you control using your keyboard. The site was built by Denver-based web designer and developer Jack Rugile, who was inspired by similar Etch A Sketch projects he saw online. Itch A Sktich allows you to sketch, save, and share your creations, giving your doodled masterpieces an option of permanence that didn’t exist when we were tykes. Whether you prefer the handheld, ephemeral traits of the original toy or this socially-juiced digital tribute, it’s clear that this classic 1960s toy continues to stand the test of time.
