ASETNIOP is a keyboard replacement method that provides the full functionality of an entire keyboard using only ten keys.  In ASETNIOP, the most common letter pressed by each finger on a traditional QWERTY keyboard (A, S, E, T, N, I, O, and P) is assigned to each of the eight “home” keys.  The shift and space keys are assigned to the thumbs.  All other letters in the alphabet, as well as punctuation, numbers, symbols, and other function keys, are produced by pressing “chords” of two or more keys at once.

“So why are all of these strange references on the Nostromo’s emergency destruct keyboard? Well, according to the Alien Explorations blog, designer Simon Deering needed some complex-sounding labels for the keyboard at short notice. He was reading The Secret Doctrine by Helena Blavatsky, a Russian philosopher and occultist, at the time of filming. Blavatsky’s book attempts to explain the origin and evolution of the universe in terms derived from the Hindu concept of cyclical development. Deering found his inspiration in its pages, and the Nostromo’s odd keyboard was born.”
