The neKo, a "new class of super instrument" ­ (Mix magazine 2003), combines the power and flexibility of personal computers with the real-world playability of traditional electronic keyboards, allowing musicians the ability to use virtual instruments and effects plug-ins in a studio or live performance setting.
Shipments will commence with the 61-key version with the 76-key to soon follow. The complete line of Open Labs¹ products can be purchased directly through the Open Labs website or one of its authorized dealers worldwide.

Check out their products page:

This is basically a fancy custom job that contains a pc.

Product blurb:

NEKO™ is the ultimate performance and studio instrument because it is simply the most advanced, flexible and cost effective product available today. Because it is based on our OpenSynth™ platform, NEKO™ frees you from all of the frustrating limitations imposed by closed, proprietary systems, while still maintaining the virtues of an all-in-one keyboard instrument.

Open Sounds: NEKO™ can emulate almost any instrument ever invented by hosting industry standard VSTi software synthesizers, samplers and audio processing plug ins.

Open System: NEKO™ utilizes industry standard micro-ATX motherboards and processors that allow you to run standard operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows and use standard PC-compatible hardware.

All in One: NEKO™'s all in one design eliminates the clutter and confusion of traditional desktop computer systems so you can focus on what really matters... The music.

User Friendly: NEKO™ enables you to change settings and access programs through an easy to use interface that shields you from the complexities of the operating system.

Power to Rock: NEKO™ can accommodate the fastest processors available, and more RAM and storage than any other music workstation.

Low Latency: NEKO™ gives you near-zero latency even under high processor loads.

Instant On: Unlike traditional computers that may take minutes to start up, NEKO™ utilizes a unique process that allows the keyboard to start up in seconds.

Interchangeable Control Modules: NEKO™'s interchangeable control modules provide a physical interface for easier control of software instruments and are designed to support virtually any future control options.

Non Stop™ Music: NEKO™ is the only musical instrument with integrated power management that combats power spikes and operates during power interruptions.

See NEKO™ Run: NEKO™ is so versatile it can virtually run any plugin or application designed for the Windows XP operating system including products from Steinberg, Native Instruments, Synapse Audio, IK Multimedia and many others!

Bring It!: equipped with PCI slots that can accept up to FULL SIZE cards, the NEKO™ can accommodate your favorite Creamware and Digidesign cards, providing unsurpassed power with grace.

Modern Art: With a sleek, modern design incorporating an aluminum chassis and rubber endbells, NEKO™ is as beautiful as it is powerful.

Surfboard: NEKO™'s included Ethernet port allows you to directly access the Internet, to quickly and easily download upgrades, sounds and applications.

Complete Portable Studio: NEKO™ is a self-contained recording, editing and mastering system that's perfect for the studio or stage.

Have it Your Way: With Open Labs' Build-Your-Own-Keyboard (BYOK) ordering system, you can have the exact NEKO™ that you want, when you want it, with the ability to upgrade at any time.
