Behold! A cool old Zenith ... thing
« on: Wed, 15 January 2020, 20:36:01 »
I have no idea what this is, or what it is for, or if it can even interface with a modern computer, but it is certainly cool:

Wow, those keycaps are gorgeous. I'd love to have it just for that.

Agreed. The listing also claims it is metal though too, so if somebody can figure out how to wire it up to a modern controller, they could have a pretty chunky keyboard.

They don't look like the usual Zenith SKCCs. More like Hi-Teks or Stackpoles.

Note that it's not a metal case, just a metal cover. The bottom is open.

Yeah, seems like it was probably mounted somewhere, like on an old terminal or something.

I agree. I'm a sucker for Zenith to begin with, since we always had their tvs growing up. I was pretty tempted to bid on it myself, but I resisted the urge.
