Google Japan unveils an unusual computer keyboard long… 1.65 meters

When it comes to innovation, Google is never outdone even when the concepts are totally crazy like the latest keyboard unveiled by its Japanese subsidiary, which was designed very long and extremely small.

Indeed, the keyboard has a single row of keys, reaching the final size of 1.65 meters long. An imposing size but still optimized compared to the prototype which measured 2.40 meters. This great bar offers a Qwerty version but also ABC, ASCII and katakana alternatives, one of the two syllabaries used in Japanese.

Beyond its quirky appearance, the keyboard was designed to take up minimal space on a desk while its lengthwise design would also allow for stretching while working due to letter spacing. In addition, if it allows two colleagues to work on the same tool at the same time, it also guarantees absolute respect for social distancing between the different offices.

But don’t get me wrong, this is obviously a joke made by Google Japan to remind people of the existence of its virtual keyboard Gboard, available on android and iOS. This funny and above all amazing news still went around the world in just a few hours, especially through its dedicated page on the Google blog where you could see these same keyboards used as landing nets or golf clubs…

And in an equally original spirit, we invite you to (re)discover Glove80, this unusual and 100% ergonomic keyboard designed as “2 gloves”.
