I've seen this Oh Land live video on YouTube and wondered:

What are these electronic instruments that Oh Land and the guy on her right play? I'd love to check them out.

Those instruments appear to be a type of synthesizing Autoharp.

If you read the brand name in one of the close-up shots, their instruments are Suzuki Omnichords. The newer model (the Q-Chord) does also have a MIDI output.

They are playing Omnichords. Sort of an electronic take on the auto-harp. Jim James from My Morning Jacket sports one on stage as well.
