The recently founded company Creative Development will presumably show a new USB card for classic Amiga computers at the AMIGA + RETRO COMPUTING show at the booth of Vesalia. "Ultrabus" has got four USB ports, and can be used in Zorro Amigas as well as on the clockport of an Amiga 1200. In Zorro mode, a flash memory with 512k capacity can hold the complete USB stack, so USB devices are available right after a cold boot. This enables booting from USB storage devices.

ARC 2002: Creative Development at Vesalia booth : Comment 17 of 22ANN.lu

Hi JoannaK (comment 2),
printers are already supported by Poseidon / HIGHWAY / SUBWAY from the very beginning. In fact it was the third real we wrote (after mice / keyboards).
Scanners can be supported not in general due to vendor specific protocol. Anyhow, Chris has added a rawwrap.class to allow easier programming of drivers (like for BetaScan). And Felix Schwarz has a marvelous software package for it.
Hm, gamecontrollers... they are also supported by Poseidon with the latest update, at least if HID compliant. The main problem is that most games bang the hardware directly, and if not, they wouldn't be able to understand an analogue joystick (ever played Great Giana Sisters *not* with a Competition Pro ? :))
Hope this helps,
Michael Boehmer
