MultiSwitch hub will allow LAN-less USB sharing - Engadget

MultiSwitch hub will allow LAN-less USB sharing - Engadget: "...will allow two computers to access up to four shared devices without the need to set up a local area network. Called the MultiSwitch hub, this device creates a proprietary behind-the-scenes network, allowing USB-equipped printers, cameras, hard drives, and other peripherals to be accessed by any combination of desktop, laptop, HTPC, or game console -- with both machines able to interact with the devices simultaneously..."

Not a bad device to have around. Sometimes you just want to share a peripheral or three and having to set up a network, configure a client, share the bloody thing...well, it is a lot of work for just that.
