PC Monitor with a spilt personality.

Scientists of Microsoft's RnD Lab in Bangalore came up with a innovative and clever piece of software. It enables two users to divide and share the display screen.This software divides the computer screen so each half is controlled by a different set of keyboard and mouse.

In effect, two users can independently use the two halves of the spilt screen.
Problem of having too many users and few machines in developing and poor countries, can be solved by this research effort.

Pioneers of research Udai Singh Pawar and Kentaro Toyama, showcased recently at Microsoft’s annual Innovation Summit. They say there is scope for collaboration between the two users: one user’s mouse can stray into the other’s half and the two could jointly edit a single document.
