Warpia is announcing Easy Dock, a new wireless docking station that allows any notebook or netbook (including Macs) to wirelessly dock with a separate display, keyboard, mouse, and speakers. A USB transmitter is attached to your system, while a receiver with 2 USB ports, DVI output, and line-out audio attaches to your peripherals.
This allows you to put your notebook nearly anywhere, while giving you the creature comforts of a desktop configuration. This could potentially be useful in tight places, clean installations, and multi-user environments.
The Warpia Easy Dock sells for $149, which is a bit more than your traditional wired docking station.
“SAN JOSE, California, Mar. 9 – Source R&D announced today the availability of the Warpia Easy Dock, which will allow users to wirelessly connect their notebook/netbook/Macbook to any traditional desktop setting. With the Easy Dock’s straightforward plug-and-play interface, consumers can have both the convenience and portability of a laptop, as well as the comfort of a desktop computer. Easier on the eyes, ears and hands, users will no longer have to squint at a miniature screen, deal with a below average sound quality, or fumble with a tiny keyboard.
Based on wireless technology from Wisair, a leading provider of single-chip based Wireless USB solutions, the Easy Dock consists of a USB dongle that connects to your laptop and a receiver that connects to your monitor, mouse, keyboard, and speakers. Your laptop will instantly recognize the dongle and begin submitting a wireless signal to the receiver, transmitting the image with a resolution of up to1400×1050 to your monitor’s screen.”
