To USB or Not to USB


590 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Products, DisplayLink Design Wins and a USB Slingshot

The USB Implementers Forum announced it has certified 590 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 Products.



These products actually passed certification tests, and each product represents 10s of thousands, 100s of thousands, or millions of units in real, off-the-shelf products shipping.  Two great examples include DisplayLink’s customer ASUS.  ASUS and DisplayLink announced the availability of the ASUS USB 3.0 HZ-1 Docking Station

DisplayLink announced Kensington’s USB 3.0 Docking Station also seen below.  It’s almost boring, all this success which is what we want for USB 3.0.  Lots and lots of success stories.

Agent J sent me this Angry Birds USB Slingshot. You can build a USB Slingshot, plug it into your computer, and change the angle, and use the sling shot as the actual controller.

I think there is actually a niche market for this. I’m guessing the guy could sell at least 20,000 of these world wide for about 20 US$ each.
