The one I've used is called a "panaboard", by Panasonic. Very handy.

One of the EE guys here said he used to work for Nissan and they had a white board that any one could use and when you were done using it you could hit a button and your drawings would be printed out.

Capture can be done via webcam, but the results generally require some manual cleanup to be useful as a vector format. To capture directly in vector format something like a pantograph with encoders would probably be more useful. Technically an XY table can be used this way if it has encoders, but it's hard to use for drawing.

I like that idea, I always wanted a smart board that could put up previous text.
As a phase two idea, is there a way to capture the human writing as a series of vectors cheaply? An obs system I saw 11 years ago had special reflective tips on the markers and two sensors to capture X-Y locations... Could a webcam do the same?

Does anyone know the dimensions of the large whiteboard at the space?
Also, I'm looking for ideas for mounting an X-Y table around it.
I'm thinking aluminum extrusion, maybe Maker Slide or something equivalent. Two long rails mounted above and below on stand-offs about 5cm from the wall would form the Y axis. On those would run a T- or I-shaped X axis rail. The tool head would have an array of Expo Click whiteboard markers.
The machine would take gcode served from a computer. The computer would accept vector files, SVG, maybe DXF. These would be sent to the computer via a web service, which would be accessed via any of a variety of interfaces (for example, visitors to the web page could use an on-page virtual whiteboard drawing tool which would then send the file to the real whiteboard, to allow remote interaction).
