    Most likely some kind of an ergonomic keyboard

    I don't know about that specific one but that style definitely exists, e.g. the Microsoft Natural keyboard range Jun 11, 2016 at 11:51

    There are many, many keyboards like this. Could you specify what you think is unusual about it?

That's a regular Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite. It's a split key format, for ergonomic purposes (read: prevents carpal tunnel or repetitive stress injuries of the wrist). It's considered one of the best split key keyboards, with nice heavy clicky action (for a membrane based keyboard). It (the whole series really) is consistently ranked as one of the best keyboards.

It's an off the shelf product, not a specially designed prop.
