I want to type on my laptop and the same content to be displayed on my PC. I want to have a keyboard that has two USB outputs that allow me to type on both computers at once.

I am unable to find a solution to THIS problem. I understand there are KVM switches, RDP, USB Switch Cables with FTP etc. but I am unable to find a keyboard with 2 USB outputs.

I do not mind DIY'ing my own keyboard to have multiple outputs on USB or PS/2, not sure if it is possible though?

Other solutions are welcome, I want it to be a hardware solution that does not use the network (network solutions always grind my gears).

Hope you can help!

Check this out, the software isn't free ($30 for a license covering 3 computers) but it works great. I think it might do what you're looking for.
