Those are neat! I've got an HP DesignJet 430 that I got used a number of
years ago. Unfortunately I use it so little that it costs me $40 per run
because the stupid ink cart dries out before I can use it up!
The L-188 Electra simulator at STI had a plot board that would trace your
ground track on a map. It was a pretty awesome bit of hardware,
especially considering there wasn't a semiconductor in the whole thing -
it was all either mechanical or tubes.
