The Etch-A-Sketch has endured for years as a beloved drawing toy for children and adults alike. It's even been taken into the third dimension. But it's always been such a solitary activity...until now.

The Connect-A-Sketch is the work of graduate design student Andrew Little. Simply put, it networks two etch a sketch screens together, so that when you draw something, it instantly appears on your partner's screen (and vice-versa). If you shake and erase your screen, your partner's screen will vibrate, letting them know to do the same. The Connect-A-Sketch will be on display at London's New Designers conference in June.

My greatest EtchASketch achievement was the patience to draw lines up and down and back and forth till the whole screen was clean so I could see how it worked. A childs curiosity is a fantastic motivator (that and I had nothing better to do).
