    The correct name for this is a Plotter.

    If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck,,,Look up Wikipedia - Plotter, to keep it simple. I've used plotters for making 40"x60" house blueprints, and no matter what the input methods or cloud connectivity are, do not change what this device is or does.All advertising and creative wishes aside, this device is simply an X Y stepper motor controlled pen writing on glass instead of paper.

Electrostatic printing devices like laser jets now are the printing devices of choice.For the general concept of this device I would have not used a pen but looked at either a digital LCD screen...see more »If it walks like a duck, and talks like a duck,,,Look up Wikipedia - Plotter, to keep it simple.

Both will last longer and be cheaper than the pens over the course of a year.
