The computer keyboard goes funky with the Keybag

What is black, white, pink or red and holds an arrangement of buttons with single alphanumeric characters engraved on them? You said a colored computer keyboard, huh? Easy enough, but you ain't quite there yet. Technology and fashion borrow ideas from each other so often that it's almost impossible to guess at first glance whether, for example, a compact kit is really a makeup accessory or a chic cell phone in disguise.

In this spirit of artistic inspiration, the Keybag by Portugese designers Joao Sabino Studio is a tribute to the faithful old computer keyboard. It is a lady's handbag made of plastic keyboard keys on the outside, with a nylon lining on the inside. And a total of 393 keys are used for each bag measuring 30 x 22 x 50 cm, if you must know. The multi-purpose handbags are available in the normal keyboard black and white or the more sporty pink and red colors.

Our verdict - looks totally funky for a geeky girl's night out and is bound to get you attention, but is probably to be avoided during mundane expeditions like shopping simply because it looks to be fairly heavy even without the addition of your purchases. As always, art doesn't come cheap - even if it is only a keyboard, in essence. The black and white versions are available at $175 while the pink and red versions are priced at $195.
