Is is possible to have two pointers on the same computer? I was working on a project with a friend and it would've been really nice to have two pointers. Note that I am not asking how to connect two mice to a computer, I want two pointers on the same computer.

You can connect multiple mice to share the same pointer.

Multiple pointers is a bit different, research and development is still ongoing in the Linux world that you may wish to peruse for information:

Video example of using multiple pointers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2iYNfl-2Es

Here is, more of a demonstration site for OSX:

Thanks! BTW, DualOSX...you can't actually download it. It comes in a .zip file and when you unzip it, it's a .txt file, so... –  daviesgeek Aug 26 '11 at 4:30
