Invention of the first computer mouse
On December 9, 1968, American inventor Douglas Carl Engelbart demonstrated the first computer mouse to the public at the San Francisco Computer Science Conference.
The first computer mouse had little resemblance to a modern gadget. It had a cube-shaped wooden case, wheels and only one button. Two metal disks inside were responsible for moving the mouse back and forth. The name of the device was due to the wire that connected to the computer.
