    Default Symbolics Space Cadet and Knight LISP Machine Keyboards

    Does anyone have one or aware of the patent numbers for these?

    I'm using LISP in Emacs and am trying to duplicate the keybindings on an iMac keyboard. I'm would like to find a function that maps hand position, finger position, hand finger combinations to keys, to Zmacs or Emacs functions.

    I'm suspicious that M-x was actually equivalent to the key left of the Symbolics Tab. Also, it seems more natural that when using Control, the hands rotate exposing just the right amount of keyboard to use with the modifier key.

    Appreciate any guidance you have.

    Thanks!

    You can still buy them, possibly, from http://www.symbolics-dks.com/ but only if they have them in stock and I think they try to keep them paired together with MacIvory systems. And they cost a very pretty penny. And you would need to buy or build an ADB to USB box and write the keymap file for unix.
