USB Key NAS

How about a Hub you can plug USB keys into that the computer see's as a Network Attached Storage Device?

The hub connects into your LAN, and can be powered from a wall plug or from the USB port you can plug in? Or better, A USB wall plug.
Got an old 1G USB key? plug it in and now you have a bigger NAS. Log intot he web interface and create mirrors of other keys in the storage Device.

Your plug already exists mate, called the Pogoplug and only $80 too.

What I mean by 'Idea'

By 'Idea' I mean something practical. This might be an improvement or something new but it should be practical.
For example:
"We should all have jet packs."
While a great idea, it's not very practical.
If I had an idea on how to improve the thrust/weight ratio, then that would be a practical idea. That being the only real problem that would need to be solved for jet packs.
