UNBOXED: Reviewing the smART sketcher Projector
Growing up, I spent many an hour doodling in notebooks pretending that I was destined to be the next Van Gogh or Picasso. One of the ways I really honed my craft of drawing dinosaurs and racecars was to invest in packets of tracing paper. Seeing the lines and curves through the translucent paper helped me to learn how to eventually recreate those images on my own, without the need to trace over them.
Granted, tracing paper worked just fine—and probably still does—we’re in the year 2018 and the concept of learning how to draw of course has been modernized thanks to the launch of the smART sketcher projector.
A CE Week 2018 Best in Show winner, the smART sketcher is a $60 product that gives children (and curious adults like myself) the ability to sketch photos from preloaded SD cards or their smartphones through the projector. smART sketcher has a range of SD cards that let you load all kinds of themed images including animals, buildings, cars, space, dinosaurs, airplanes, and more. If that’s not enough to fulfill you or your child, you can also load images from your smartphone’s photo library into the projector and either trace them as is or convert them into sketches to get better-defined lines to trace.
