I made this video specifically for everyone here. Does anyone have any insight into what machine(s) this could be for?

That's from some version of the Incoterm SPD.

Thank you mr_a500 , I think you're absolutely correct, thank you so much for identifying this. I've updated the video to reflect your results!

Best,

So 3 toggle switches and a bank of lights above the keyboard (which light up depending on what keys are pressed)? That's really cool. I'd love to have a board with lights that did that (I'm sure QMK supports something like that, I just need to read the manual and have a board with some blinkenlights).

Any idea what the light pattern represents? Is it like a buffer or actually a representation of the keys pressed?

I remembered this terminal from when I identified it in a 1975 Hawaii Five-O episode. ("Computer Killer")

Notice how every photo of an Incoterm terminal seems to have different keycap colours (left and right of the central block). I don't think I've seen two different pictures with matching layout and colours. Maybe it was always customized when ordered.

I have no idea. I'm sure there's a PDF manual out there that will explain. I do know you can program the lights, based on this bit from a sales PDF:

...and tomorrow's tomorrow's tomorrow ...and tomorrow's tomorrow's tomorrow's tomorrow ...and...

That looks like an uncomfortable typing position. And where's the outlet to plug that damn thing in?
