Peripheral and accesories maker Belkin has announced its new Cable-Free USB Hub, which utilizes Ultra-Wideband (UWB) wireless technology to transfer data to and from USB devices to your computer without a connecting cable. That’s right: you can keep your printer, scanner, hard drives, media player dock, and other USB peripherals up to 30 feet away while you lounge on your couch and connect to them all at full speed over the air.
The Cable-Free USB Hub relies on a USB dongle which contains a UWB transceiver: thus pop the dongle into a free USB 2.0 port and you’ll be able to communicate with the four-port hub. A dingle stand is also included to provide optimal wireless reception. The hub requires Windows 98, ME, 2000, or XP or (on the Mac side) Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later.
Sound good? The hub is set to be available in mid-December at a suggested price of $199.99.
