This artistically inclined toy lets you plug colored plastic pegs into a board that are then illuminated from behind, producing brilliant, glowing creations that look captivating in the dark. Introduced by Hasbro in 1967, Lite-Brite hasn’t changed much at all — although there is now a Lite-Brite app for the iPhone (download Lite-Brite for iPhone).
How we’d update it: You’d be able to plug our new Lite-Brite into your computer and control the color of each individual peg using LEDs. You’d also be able to make them flash in whatever sequence you choose, so you can create animated designs that can be saved for later use.
