No, I'm not thinking of a KVM switch. I saw an advertisement for a device that allowed two people to use one computer independently of each other. It was a hardware solution and didn't involve a workstation or virtualization. This was several years ago and may not be available anymore, but it did exist.

A few searches turned up this software solution.

You could try a dumb terminal arrangement, its basicly a server with out lying hardware which is a keyboard mouse an monitor ect an a small low powered compute to provide basic access to the network an I/O but there not common an the only one i have seen was specialist unix based an was very very old.
