Play guitar hero on this?

You probably know what’s on the left. What’s on the right?

We’ve been a bit liberal with this one.

Answer:

On the left is Douglas Engelbart’s Chorded Keyboard. He demonstrated this at his famous ‘mother of all demos’ event. It never took off, but he never gave up on it. He recently commissioned designer Erik Campbell to recreate it, and what you see on the right is Campbell’s take on it called the Jellyfish Keyboard.

Sorry for the delay folks. Big things happening here :) Question will  be modded on the 14th.

    This is a variant of a design of 5 fingered mouse where each finger has a button to act upon and is supposed to be more efficient than the normal mouse.

    Oh the right is the five buttoned jellyfish-like keyboard. On the left is an example of a chorded keyboard, where 1-5 keys are pressed in combination to perform functions.
