Does anyone make a USB switcher for sharing a keyboard between 6 or 8 devices?

I would be really convenient if I could find a way to share the same keyboard between multiple game consoles and PCs without having to constantly move cables/wireless receivers.

Nope. Such a device would be incredibly complex and extremely expensive. They simply don't exist.

They're called KVM switches, but they are a little expensive if you want more than 2 ports.

KVM is archaic, and I don't need video. Just USB. The only 8 port ones I've seen were all f***ing VGA!

There's Synergy, which let's you share Keyboard & Mouse with multiple PCs over the internet.
