Etch A Sketch Controlled With An NES Controller

One of the hardest parts of using an Etch A Sketch, aside from the ever-continuing line and the difficulty of moving diagonally, is that you have to turn a circle knob to make a straight line. I’ll admit, I’m getting a little picky here, but I was never good at using an Etch A Sketch, because as a person who gets confused easily, they are positively infuriating. YouTuber Alpinedelta32‘s Arduino mod might actually make the device usable for someone like me, because it translates those pesky knobs to an NES controller d-pad. Finally, Etch A Sketchin’ for the rest of us.
