Wireless USB hub in Japan

A still rare example of a wireless USB hub can be found in Japan, where shoppers can buy the Y-E Data YD-300. The hub accepts up to four USB devices, and broadcasts via ultra-wideband radio (UWB) to a USB 2.0 dongle plugged into a computer. Since it can be located as much as 33 feet away, this may make it ideal for tasks such as remotely broadcasting music or recording security video on a webcam. The 300 is already on sale for approximately 39,800 yen ($338). [via Impress Watch]
