Home Base shares wireless USB devices
Belkin has introduced its Home Base networking hub on Tuesday, which allows users to share peripherals using their existing wireless networks, including printers, external hard drives or other USB devices. The Home Base is compatible with other Wi-Fi b/g/n devices and will also allow users to automatically back up a connected computer's files onto a designated and connected USB hard drive.
Home Base can also automatically share files stored on attached flash or hard drives with other devices, including gaming consoles such as Sony's PS3 or Microsoft's Xbox 360. Photos can be automatically uploaded to Flickr or Picasa. WPS security provides an option for setting up a near-automatic encrypted connection.
Belkin is now shipping the Home Base with pricing set at $130.
