I don't own this, but copying this answer from the green place from Josh Burch:
"There are many design elements that are different in Penguin's flash canon many of these elements are on the technical side (the loading sequence, for instance, is very different and streamlined), a few of the differences are aesthetic (the pen is completely black and comes with an ungimmicked marker as well), and as I'm sure you are aware, right now the Pyro Pen is not available.
As far as I am the aware idea of a marker pen that ignites flash paper goes back to Jamie D. Grant and was released by Rick Haslett in 2006. Versions of the marker have been released by various magic companies over the years. Some have run into safety and legal issues. Nicholas has been developing his version over the past several years and has released it with Penguin."

Thank you barts185. One more thing the first person to create and market a flash cannon disguised as a marker was Rick Haslett. Penguin Magic is proud to release Flare with his explicit permission.
