    It's a computer from 1954, silly. The steering wheel is so you can play the 'Eyetye-Plumber Kart Racing' game that came packaged with it.

    IF I remember correctly, this is actually a training room for some of the 50's era nuclear subs. I have seen this picture before, and it was somehow tied to the Navy subs of the era, and the picture came from a popular mechanics magazine or something like that.....
