Have seen this before somewhere (might even have been here).
Conclusion was that it's a fake, the components don't match up in age and purpose (and look at that paper, it doesn't line up with the rollers in the teletype).

It's a hoax, but still entertaining.

That's not a steering wheel. It's the wi-fi antenna.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
