I don't really know what the round object is, but it certainly resembles an old-time steering wheel.
This image was used as an example at this page. I don't know what its original source was, it is uncited.
I'm not even entirely certain this is even a computer. The gauges suggest it could perhaps be an industrial control system. On the other hand there is a keyboard "terminal" with some kind of printer output.
So, obviously I don't know much - but I am interested in what this computer is, and what that particular device is for.
