Submission + - Etch-a-Sketch inventor Andre Cassagnes, has died at 86 (geeksofdoom.com)

Xemu writes: "Andre Cassagnes, the inventor of the Etch-A-Sketch has died in Paris at the age of 86. The famous toy was actualized during the presidential campaign Etch-A-Gate when Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich, began holding up Etch-A-Sketches during their rallies. The toy is pretty advanced as it is essentially a manually operated plotter with a built-in erasing system. Plenty of hacks out there exists to mod the plotter to draw greyscale robotically, turn it into a temperature logger etc. Thank you Andre!"
