The Space Bar Gives You Desktop Space

In our humble opinion, no desktop computer is complete without a sleek space-saving keyboard hideout. Even better, a keyboard hideout with 6 USB ports.

The Space Bar is a desk accessory that basically functions as a garage for your keyboard.

Stow your (up to) 18" long by 1.5" high keyboard underneath and use it's USB-port-equipped shelf to hold and plug in your necessary desktop knickknacks; like a mouse, flash drive or digital camera. And with the aluminum it's obviously a perfect fit for Mac.

It's a cool design but it's part of an even cooler idea: It's posted on the Quirky community site. If you're not familiar, that means that a young budding designer (and his collaborators) designed this as a concept. If enough people commit to ordering the product, it will get manufactured and shipped out. No consumers are charged for anything until the design goes into the manufacturing phase.

The Quirky Web site is doing a pre-sale of about 600 units, so if this is just what you've been needing for your desk, head on over and pick one up for $42.
