Asus Comes Out with a Wafer Thin WiFi Router

Wow. The WiFi router is usually the eyesore of any home, along with that ugly modem it's attached to. Aside from Apple's Airport, we really haven't seen a router that doesn't look like it was designed in the early 90s never to be updated again. Then comes along this skinny, young thing, ready to change the industry. Ok, we're exaggerating, but it's still nice to see someone trying to innovate the small box that's become such a necessity in our lives.

Asus just released its RT-N56U, the thinnest router we've ever seen, or should we say, almost didn't see? The router can handle 802.11 a, b, g, and n wireless signals and like a few other WiFi routers, you can plug any USB printer or hard drive into this to be able to access it via the wireless network. As of now, no price has been determined, but we're very curious as to how this looks in real life.
