Escher-Sketch lets you attempt the absurd and achieve the impossible

LEEUWARDEN, NETHERLANDS – A spinoff of the Etch A Sketch mechanical drawing toy named after Dutch graphic artist M.C. Escher allows children of all ages to draw explorations of infinity, perspective, and hyperbolic geometry.

The Escher Sketch, like the original toy on which it is modeled, has two knobs that move a stylus by means of pulleys and cables to draw images in aluminum powder on the back of the screen.

The difference with Escher Sketch is that the artist can utilize techniques like curvilinear perspective, elective gravity wells, and fluid expressions of reality. You can adore chaos in a way that produces order, and play a tiresome game of wandering around in enigmas. So let us then try to climb the mountain, not by stepping on what is below us, but to pull us up at what is above us, for my part at the stars; amen.

Then you shake it up and start all over again.
