Abstract

Description input/output I/O unit packaged in a small box that mirrors IP connection on a source PC establishing new connection with same IP address via direct wireless connection to internet and then can be moved away from the PC as a mobile extension of the PC utilizing I/O features of PC. The essence of this invention is not only to be able to move content from one point to another remote point, but to virtually transfer the local sourced web page (with full access privileges) to another remote target (or multiple target locations), PC or notebook for data acquisition, control code, and bi direction AV without needing the hardware, firmware, and software of a conventional PC or notebook in that remote location.
