Computex Taipei 2013 - We had a meeting at the gorgeous W Hotel here in Taipei today with Andy from DisplayLink, and boy did he have some ultra impressive tech to show us. DisplayLink have some output technology that is baked into various products, with the Targus device shown in the video below.

As you can see, it is running four - yes, FOUR monitors from a single USB 3.0 output. This is beyond impressive considering the MacBook Air outputs are usually limited to DisplayPort. The dock used can provide with HDMI or DVI output, with another USB dock daisy-chained in to provide another two monitor outputs for a total of four. We were very impressed with what we saw, and can't wait to get our hands on some of these for review, and general day-to-day use!
