Warpia Easy Dock Provides A Universal Docking Station For Your Existing Notebook
Source R&D has just introduced the Warpia Easy Dock, which essentially is a wireless docking station for any notebook. It's universal in nature and requires only a free USB 2.0 port on a notebook in order to work. It's totally plug-and-play, and it wirelessly sends out video and accessory signals that hit a receiver that's attached to a small dock that resides on your desk. That dock can handle 2 USB accessories as well as a DVI output, giving you enough to have an external keyboard, external mouse and monitor continually plugged in for use with your home-based notebook.
The monitor can use a resolution as high as 1400x1050, and it works with Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP and Mac OS X Leopard/Snow Leopard. It's available starting now for $149.99, but honestly, we're looking forward to a version that takes advantage of more bandwidth so we can use our 1080p monitors without any lag or pixel problems.
