The Google Gboard Bar

The Google Gboard Bar is a tongue-in-cheek product created with an elongated construction to offer users an unexpected kind of typing experience.

The keyboard comes in at just under 65-inches in length and boasts all the keys on a conventional QWERTY keyboard, but in one long line rather than in rows. This enables the typist to immediately know where a key is located without having to do any searching, while the elongated construction could cause some issues.

The Google Gboard Bar is imagined in use around the house as a place to position chopsticks when not in use, as a handle for a bug catching net and more.

The keyboard is a pun on how ‘bar’ is the next syllable after ‘key’ in the Japanese word for keyboard.
