Build Beyond: ATOMS “Etch A Sketch”


Build your own “Etch A Sketch” that uses Motor ATOMS to move a pad of paper underneath a stationary drawing pen! By creating two perpendicular tracks for the pad of paper to move along you can create a setup that will move the pad in all necessary directions to make a drawing. All you need are Motors to drive forward and backward along each track that are controlled by the two ports of Accelerometer ATOMS. Here’s how it’s done:
