I got one of the Wormhole cables when they were here before. My wife works from home, and she has her work computer on VPN, and her personal computer sitting next to it on the desk. (One monitor for each)
Figuring it would be nice to ditch the keyboard and mouse set from one of the computers, I had thought of a software solution like "Mouse Without Borders". However, that won't work because the computers are essentially on different networks. Remote desktop won't work as a solution, either.
I plugged it in and it crashed one of the computers- turns out there was a conflict with some scanner driver- the solution was easily found on the website.
Turns out that the mouse works but the keyboard doesn't- it may be because the work computer is a laptop, so it's not external?
Anyway, interesting concept, but not perfect in execution. Still, I'd say it's worth the $15 or so to try it out.
