This is spending money on a solution that can be carried from one notebook to the next...
Instead of having a shared rendering tower at a work site employers can have a shared firegl... take your laptop plug in and render

Incredibly cool concept if I understand it right. 1 graphics card for all my boxes. Sweet.... Saves that $100/year upgrade on each. Right now that is 4 times. Each 3400 ATI class card is at least 40 bucks. Buying a hub like this is $160 USD in the bank each time I upgrade. I totally love it. Go AMD go ATI go go go

I suspect the market for this is very small, remembering most systems are sold with integrated video just to reduce the cost of video, and that buying a laptop with a better GPU in it is inevitably going to be cheaper than an external box plus power supply plus video card.

IMO, putting the video card in the monitor itself would make more sense for most, or just leaving it like it is now.
