The Penman Robotic Turtle/Plotter is just as it's name applies...a robotic plotting device that connects up to an RS-232 serial port. It consists of two pieces...the turtle, which has wells to hold 3 pens of various colors, plus a center well for a black pen, and which crawls around on castors. The second part is the control unit which is connected to the computer's RS-232 port and which accepts movement commands from the computer as well as position data from the turtle. The two are connected by way of a ribbon cable which feeds out from a well in the control unit. The Penman dates from about 1985.
