Powering a device via USB

Instead of powering a device with 2 AA batteries, I'm interested in creating something that would allow it to draw power via USB. Is this possible?

My friend and I are looking into the possibility of powering a device by a USB cable that would normally use 2 AA batteries. He knows more about electronics than I do but we both want to be damn sure that we don't fry the device or us, so we are asking around.
I imagine something like this would be possible but we both aren't exactly sure how. A shove in the right direction would be appreciated.
