I did a search and did not find anything about this particular product I am wondering about. I became aware of the smART Sketcher recently.  It is a way of projecting images onto paper in order to sketch them.  It looks like it was designed for children but is marketed for ages 5 - 105.  I have done some research and it appears that with the free app that can be downloaded for it, you can project your own pictures onto a surface.  The only thing it won't do---I don't think-- is allow you to make an image smaller.  It seems that to make that happen the surface you are sketching on must be elevated.  Can I get some opinions on this product for sketching images onto cookies if anyone has any?

I’ve never used the product either, but I would be wary. There are many 1-star reviews, one of the common complaints is specifically around using your own images (which I imagine you would want to do almost exclusively.) It also seems like a severe handicap to not be able to resize the images. It’s also pretty expensive for a toy. You can probably get a lower end projector for just a little bit more investment. That in combination with the Camera Lucida app (which does let you resize images, angle them, mirror, and more) will serve you soooo much better.

I got it. Plan on returning. The images were either to blurry or they were distorted. I really wanted it to work. 

Thank you.  I will avoid it.  I think I am just going to save up for a pico.
