Operating a headless PC requires remote desktop access, but in many cases compositing the desktop in high resolution is possible only when the computer detects a connected display. fit-Headless is a miniature HDMI plug that emulates a high-definition display connected to the PC. The headless PC identifies fit-Headless as a connected display and enables the GPU thus allowing remote desktop compositing at high resolution. fit-Headless works with any HDMI capable PC on any operating system and requires no software installation nor configuration. fit-Headless does not require external power.

My current setup in my office involves a 2012 Mac mini as my primary machine, hooked up to a single monitor. I have a gaming PC that is also on the desk -- it used to be hooked up to a flaky KVM switch that rarely worked, so it was a hassle to use whenever I wanted to access my PC.
Now, I just have this plugged into the graphics card of my PC, and I connect to it through various VNC clients like Splashtop or iTeleport. It tricks the Windows machine into thinking that a monitor is hooked up, so output is rendered at 1920 x 1080 (without this, the graphics card never activates, so all output is rendered at 640 x 480 and looks horrible connecting over a VNC client).
As an added bonus, I've been able to stream a number of games to my Mac using Steam's new in-home streaming interface. So now, I can still play the latest top of the line games on my Mac mini with no problems! (Without this display emulator, I actually can't use Steam's in-home streaming application because the resolution ends up being too low).
At the end of the day, there are ways to make your own device like this, but it costs just as much (if not more) to get a cable and then do some soldering. This works, it's high quality, and really affordable too.
