Its a the pony version of a keyboard and mouse.

Eeyup, that's pretty much what I've been thinking ponies would use/are using. The typewriters in Ponyville Confidential seem to have a somewhat similar configuration. I'd actually say some of the buttons here are too small and could be enlarged, but the idea seems just about right. Same goes for the mouse, paticularly considering that it's easier for a pony to move their hoof up and down rather than to the sides, like humans do with hands.
As for how the input is given: I think that each letter and number would have its own combination of button presses a pony needs to perform. At least for starters. Later, things could get more elaborate and diversified. But for starters, this would certainly do. Well done, my Princess.

And well done, maker. Love the elaborate decoration, the starry mane's pretty nice, the face is incredibly adorkably lovely and what seems to be a bow in her hair or the straps of the goggles make it even better. The grand wings look good here and help frame and point our attention towards the inventions. Twi is using them as very good pointers. And the pose in which she's in, hooves, wings and slightly tilted head and all, is proud, enthusiastic, adorkable, lovely and good. Good job!

Thanks,Its simple yet still complicated.
First typing is counter clockwise when typing, so the letter to the left goes first. Pressing the "A #" button gets you "a", holding shift on the lunar pad gets you "A", unless the sun button( Caps lock) is pressed. To get the "#" one holds the halve moon button on the lunar pad and presses the "A #" button on the sun pad to get the "#". The halve moon counter part is the full moon on the sun disk and the #lock on the eclipse pad(number pad) do the same function for their respective pad(eclipse) or their counterpart(sun/lunar pad).
They have gem stubs because their wireless, unicorn magic and stuff.
I also thew the "F#" buttons out the window.
