Computex Taipei 2013 - If we weren't impressed with DisplayLink's technology powering four monitors from a single USB port on an Apple MacBook Air, then you'd better sit down for this one, folks.

The video above shows an ASUS monitor being powered by a single USB cable, from a notebook - impressive. The delay from plugging it in to the monitor working, which is 1920x1080 by the way, its mere seconds. This is such a great idea for people on the go, for someone like myself who would cover an event I can have this in my bag and when I get back to my hotel I can plug it in and have a Full HD monitor ready, all from a single USB port.

DisplayLink, you have impressed me so much today - one of the best technologies shown at Computex hands down.
