USB over IP

Here's a demo of what's possible when you combine USB over IP technology and thin clients such as the Sun Ray.  If your desktop is Solaris or Linux, the USB ports on a Sun Ray really are USB over IP, but what about when we want to pass devices up to Windows sessions?  Unfortunately at that point we are at the limitations of RDP or ICA.  Unless we use something else like a USB over IP hub. 

The device I'm using is an AnywhereUSB device from Digi.  Even cooler stuff can happen when you use a VM technology like Win4Solaris or Win4Lin such as consumer level biometric devices.
