This Week in Vintage Hardware: The Original Mouse

original-mouse-08dec03
Modern technology seems almost entirely composed of various plastics and metals. Hardware doesn’t get more vintage than when wood is involved! Douglas Englebart created the world’s first mouse in the 1960s, which was partially made of wood; he would later patent his model in 1971. The mouse would help put an end to an awful command prompt interface style and make computers much more simplified in the process.
