I got this ancient Velotype chording keyboard for cheap. No wonder, it's not working. I'm not even able to reproduce the burning smell the seller promised I would get if I switched it on. It's still a very interesting piece of hardware. Actually, I am not sure if this is a keyboard at all or a computer in its own right. If anyone here has more information about this particular model maybe even a manual, I would be very happy. Also: what switches are those? They are non-tactile, probably linear and have a rather short travel distance. There's a diode or LED built into each switch.
BTW, the modern Velotypes (or Veyboards as they are (were?) also called) are still in use for subtitling TV shows and for simultaneous transcription for the hearing impaired.

These switches do indeed look similar.sixty wrote:Switches look like they could be a variant of the ICL switches, made by ICL (duh).
