The Space bar, in a standard keyboard is a long key present usually at the bottom of the keyboard, which hosts many functions and can be used for multiple purposes such as for jumping in games, switching pages, and more. However, despite this, the spacebar is usually used to insert spaces between the text so that it becomes more comprehendible. Its length is kept such that it remains under the easy approach of both hands while typing.
Keyboard Users have been in attempts at achieving the maximum amount of spacebar clicks per second and host interest in competing with one another for it. The estimated maximum number of clicks per minute seems to be around 600-700 while the average number of clicks per minute is about 400. If you achieve only 1-4 clicks per second, you are rated as a slow clicker.
Evan. H established a world record in spacebar clicking by pressing the spacebar 58 times in only 5 seconds! Matthew B. Menard on the other hand was able to complete 258 clicks in 30 seconds. While the world record for the highest number of clicks per second is 16CPS (Clicks per Second).
People who are deeply involved in gaming tend to have better CPS in comparison to those who barely make use of the spacebar in their everyday tasks. An average person may find it pretty hard, beating the scores mentioned above. The highest number of clicks per second completed in one second was 16, whereas, for an average person, studies show, the clicks per the second number was 6.24. Most people can easily attempt 6 to 7 clicks per second. Being a fast clicker can prove to be highly beneficial when it comes to data entry and even gaming. So, if you seek to break the record, you would need intensive practice to do so.
Fast pressing of the spacebar can be beneficial in typing. Especially for people for whom typing is an essential part of their life. For gamers, who spend most of their time competing with other tough competitors, having control over the speed of clicking is the key to victory. Most games involve the use of the spacebar for jumping or applying boosts during car racing. The stronger the grip on the spacebar, the better the score.
Other than this, the speed of clicking is also important for programmers for testing different programs and for coding websites. Spacebar is also used in collaboration with modifier keys for the fulfillment of tasks such as resizing or closing a window being used, backspacing, or even half spacing the text. The shift key when used with the space bar enables the user to “page up” or ‘page down” within the browser in use.
If you press the spacebar while watching videos or using the music player, this key can be used for resuming, playing, and pausing purposes. If you get a good grip on rapidly clicking the spacebar, this can prove to be helpful in all tasks mentioned above.
