Space Bar looks like Apple gear but isn't

Why hide your keyboard?

Any power user knows that available USB ports on your computer or desktop can quickly fill up leaving you having to unplug gear each time you need to connect something new. You can connect a USB hub to get more ports, but that adds more clutter to your desk.




A new device called the Space Bar has been developed and launched by Quirky with help from the Quirky community. The space bar is designed to add six new USB ports to your computer and hide your keyboard.


The device can hide a keyboard up to 18" long and 1.5" thick. I'm not very sure why you would need to hide your keyboard, but I guess some people like a clean desk. I'd rather see the gizmo be widened so I can sit my LCD on top. The Space Bar is available now for $42 for a three pack.
