Using Windows 7, how can you use multiple mice (to get multiple cursors)?

Is it somehow possible to use two mice in Windows 7? I think this could be useful; like using two fingers on a multi touch display...

I haven't tried it myself but Pluralinput looks to be another option.

I was looking for collaborative screen sharing with two mice - found Screenhero . Free for now as it is in beta. Good times.

"I Considered all of the above Apps that claim to do this task.
The BEST, most TRANSPARENT, USER FRIENDLY, SMALL LEARNING CURVE app was Plural Input

Currently in Beta Version but very good.

Download and Install Plural Input
Make sure Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5 is installed too.
Install Plural Input Drivers over your existing additional mouse driver under: Control Panel >> Device Manager >> Mice & other pointing devices.
You will find the Driver under C:\Program Files (x86)\Pluralinput\Driver
Install Correct Driver! Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 have their own 32 and 64 bit driver
Setup Plural input
Run Plural Input"

I have no idea if this works, but here is an AutoIt script that claims to allow two cursors at once from two separate mice.
