Lisp Machine Keyboard

Joey deVilla has posted some closeup pictures of the Lisp Machine that he donated to HackLabTO:

The keyboard is bristling with modifier keys. Yes, we’ve all got shift and control, but most of us don’t have hyper, super, and meta keys. I have a guess as to what the network and local keys do.

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.

    …but we call them Windows-key and Alt, respectively :)

    the “Windows” keys in Linux are often mapped as Super.

    I’m sure I couldn’t handle a Lisp keyboard — the backspace key is way too small ;-)

    I like the square, triangle, circle keys. Does anyone know what those do? I do not, however, approve of the unholy mixing of Optima with Helvetica.

    Sure you can handle the Lisp Machine keyboard. Just use the fat RUBOUT key to delete characters.

    SQUARE, TRIANGLE, CIRCLE are function keys left for the user.
