Default Matrox Announces The World's First Remote Graphics Unit

Now this looks cool!

The Extio F1400 is the world's first remote graphics unit and allows the keyboard, mouse, up to four monitors and audio peripherals to be completely separate from the computer. And here's the kicker – the computer is connected to the Extio F1400 with up to 820 feet of fiber-optic cable.

Extio F1400 PCIe card

The Extio F1400 will start shipping in the second quarter of 2006 – pricing is not yet available.
It will probably cost a fortune, but I can see many possibilites for this device.

That would be great for businesses and schools that don't use server/workstation setups. Keep all your important hardware in a safe room while you can use that whereever.
