Reverse USB splitter?

Does anyone know if it's possible to get a USB splitter like this one:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Griffin-Smar...tp_s2_edpp_url

but the other way round, so there is one USB 'hole' (idk what to call it) with two cables connecting to two USB plugs?

Thanks for any help!

EDIT: Just found one after ages of looking. Would this work?

Why do you think it wouldn't work?

I assume you want to share a USB device between two computers? That's not possible.

No, that cable will not work. That cable is to provide extra USB power for more power hungry bus-powered devices.

If you want to use one USB device with 2 computers this is the sort of thing you need
