Hackaday Prize Entry: A Better KVM Switch

ok while this is not the exact solution i’m personally looking for, this is a great development. KVM switches are still some exotic hardware for in server rooms, mostly only supporting VGA, PS2 and maybe a USB port or two. And then the maximum screen resolution is always limited to something below full HD. There is A LOT of potential for a decent & modern keyboard/mouse/video switch for use in a desktop environment, supporting DVI/HDMI and screen resolutions that are common today. Not to mention that these things are still killer expensive if you want more than 2 machines connected. I also don’t like the fact that the computer sees the KVM switch as keyb, mouse and monitor, someone please make one with an analog multiplexer, or even a box full of relays for all i care.
