How To Share Keyboard & Mouse Over Two Computers?

I'm currently in the stages of building my own PC. I have a small desk, currently housing my 17" eMac, my 15" TiBook and the keyboard mouse.

When I do finish my PC build I won't have room to fit another keyboard and another mouse, even if I had the room I wouldn't want to because it'd look ridiculous.

Anyway they're wired, not wireless so that counts out the option of VNC or anything like that. And preferably I'd rather not have them controling both computers at the same time, it'd be nice to have a switch or a choice to choose which computer to operate.

I know this is a long shot but thanks for the help in advance.
