Sketch-3D is an interactive game that allows its users to create their own stereoscopic 3D drawings. Not only can the modern etch-a-sketch be played for the ultimate personal experience, but by hooking the hardware system up, you can have a large scale projection of your creations.

The Sketch-3D gadget uses two software 3D cameras that essentially stimulates the human eye and creates the illusion that the drawing being made is in fact 3D.

Implications - Recently, it's become very popular to revive old products and replace their archaic innards with cutting-edge bells and whistles. Retro games are particularly susceptible to this marketing as they are easily upgraded to maintain their old charm, while introducing new mechanics or gameplay elements. Companies capable of revising their older products like Nintendo and SEGA will enjoy the devotion of long-time fans and newcomers alike.
