Where are you paying $20 for an Etch-A-Sketch?

As an apparent bonus, this case also gives you the ability to see dead people.

Damn! I once gave an Etch-A-Sketch to a manager at my job as a joke, saying
it was running an 'executive' version of a new software package (yes, I stole it
from DILBERT, sue me). He sent me back a great email (which I've since lost)
complaining that the volume controls didn't work and he couldn't get porn on it
at great length.

Damn me for not sticking with the idea.

It's been out for awhile.

Official Lite-Brite app.

There was also a superior knock-off called iBrite, but as far as I can tell it's been removed from the store.

So now that you can turn your iPad into an Etch-a-Sketch, does that mean you'll be able to vote for it?

Someone came up with a legit use for an iPad?
