"Can anyone explain how this could be physically achieved? I'm genuinely stumped."

Some (nearly all nowadays) monitors have a socket in the back that you connect a cable to and then connect to the computer. Take two monitors and one video cable and Bob is your uncle.

The USB plug will slide into a CAT5 socket nicely.
