ThinkGeek has created the Sandscript, a clever device that uses magnets to allow you to control up to three steel balls and draw mesmerizing patterns in the sand.
Zen gardens are a relaxing escape right on your desk. Drawing little circles in the sand. Placing the rocks. Leveling the sand and starting again. Except one day you came in and your little rake was gone. That makes it challenging to be zen.
Give your zen garden an upgrade with Sandscript. You can make symmetrical mandala patterns or randomized doodles on command. Set it and let it go or make tiny adjustments continuously. Sandscript comes with two steel balls; make your selection based on what level of detail suits your design aesthetic. And when you’re ready to start over, just shake it like an Etch a Sketch, and your ephemeral designs will disappear into a blank canvas of sand.
