Small Server For Sharing USB Resources

KeySpan USB 2.0 Server

It’s things like these that make me go, “Now why didn’t anyone think of this earlier?!”.

KeySpan has introduced USB 2.0 Server, and it is a pretty wonderful device if it works as advertised. To put it simply, it’s a network enabled USB hub that can share two USB devices over wireless or wired networks.

This obsoletes the need to plug USB devices such as printers and scanners to a computer in order to be shared. Essentially, this will reduce scattered shared USB devices as well as save energy to power up redundant PCs just for the sake of sharing USB devices.

If you’d like more information, The Seattle Times has a nice write-up about the KeySpan USB 2.0 Server.

    Let’s see how long our friends from China would take to clone this and sell it here 😉

    This USB 3.0 Expresscard is designed for your laptop’s expresscard slot, the small thin slot that’s probably on the left or right side of your laptop and is found on most laptops these days. This expresscard is of the 34mm variety, and will fit into virtually any expresscard slot.
