Is there a software out there that will allow two mouse pointers (cursors) on my Mac? Note that I don't just want to connect two mice, I want two pointers, each controlled by a mouse. This is the Windows version of this question.

If there's only one pointing device connected, how are you planning on controlling the second pointer? – music2myear Sep 6 '11 at 17:58
How are you going to control the second pointer without another mouse? This is NOT the equivalent of that question at all. – Shinrai Sep 6 '11 at 17:59
Whoops, lemme fix that. Check back in a sec... – daviesgeek Sep 6 '11 at 17:59
btw, mouse pointer and cursor are different things. Cursor is normally used to refer to the caret (text insertion point) – StevenV Sep 6 '11 at 20:04
@Steven I know, I was trying to make it less confusing. Should I take that out? – daviesgeek Sep 6 '11 at 20:18

Vine Server, for one, lets you set up a VNC server on a single user basis; you can then fast-switch to another user locally, and allow the original user to connect via VNC to their active desktop.

Very good answer. However, it still requires having two computers. The whole point is to have two people on one, single computer :) – daviesgeek Mar 21 '13 at 7:25
