Sketchmi lets younguns sketch whatever on their tablets

Many artists have switched over to the tech side of things to become graphic designers. They use software and computers to make art. Still, many would prefer to have the convenience of technology, while still using good old fashioned pen and paper.

Sketchmi brings these two worlds together. This product is essentially a tablet case that’s most compatible with the iPad mini, iPad 2 and iPad 3, though it may still work with other models. To use, simply place on the tablet like a case. Add a sheet of paper over the screen to use for tracing a cool picture found on the Internet or from a personal photo library.

A protective screen ensures that you’re not actually drawing on the tablet’s screen. Best of all, sketchmi’s Web site has a library of fun images for children to enjoy. The case’s design was inspired by a hardcover book.

This product offers simple fun and is great for children. The creators may want to consider creating an app that can be accessed while offline for ease of use, but all in all sketchmi is well-designed. For one of their own, backers will need to donate $35 to the Kickstarter campaign for delivery in September. This product will only achieve success upon raising $18,800.
