That looks to me like a chopped-up Apple Adjustable Keyboard
The thing propped up on the black stalk must be the separate part with arrow keys, nav cluster and numeric keypad. The nav cluster has small buttons instead of full-sized keys. The curved top edges of that and the right-hand half below give it away.
Please don't do that to a vintage keyboard: it would not function. The Apple Adjustable Keyboard is actually even older than the first MS Natural Keyboard, and the mechanical key switches have a reputation of malfunctioning but are rare so difficult to replace.
Thanks for your reply, and thanks for the found, I think you are right!
Yeah well, seems they were mercyless to this keyboard, on that TV show. Impossible for them to claim the seal "No keyboard was harmed in the making of this episode". RIP little Apple Adjustable Keyboard, little angel gone too quickly.
Thanks to point me to Xah Lee's pages, I have red a few during the last week-end (I've also found those
). For the record I've been quite enthusiast about the keyboard.IO since its early public start... but I've now been waiting enough for an ISO-FR version of it. I'm close to hopeless on that, so I'm searching an actual existing keyboard fitting "ergonomic/mechanical/not too much compromises/mature/styled". That's where the ErgoDox seems to be the best fit so far.
