An Etch a Sketch was invented in 1950's by André Cassagnes and named L'Ecran Magique by Arthur Granjean. An Etch a Sketch works by encasing the inside surface of the glass screen with aluminium powder which is scraped off by a movable stylus. Two large knobs control the stylus, one moving horizontally and the other moving vertically. When both knobs are turned simultaneously, diagonal lines are created and when the toy is turned upside down, the picture is erased. This is because polystyrene beads are caused to smooth out and coat the surface inside the screen with aluminium powder.
