    To create more playing area for the Oculus Rift I find I have two PC on one desk near enough and feel that a KVM would be useful.
    Can anyone recommend a good one that works with windows 10?

    Windows is irrelevant it does not have a controller.. I have a couple, but sadly no pics and I am away from home ATM. If you find some run them by me, as I had a bit of trial and error finding decent ones. Note though, you won't be switching the video unless you want to spend a fortune.

    If you just need keyboard and mouse switching, and can leave at least one PC powered on when you are using both, then an entirely software solution like Mouse without Borders or Multiplicity would work. Otherwise, any basic cheap USB K/M switch would work if video switching is not required.

    It should auto switch (and usually does) but sometimes you just need to press the clicky button :)
