The first computer mouse

Watch the first computer mouse made of wood

Our previous posts brought you back in time to the internet in the 90’s. This time we want to show you what the very first computer mouse looked like.

You may be surprised to learn that the first computer mouse was actually made of wood! I know, hard to imagine, right?

See for yourself how it works in this short video we found on YouTube. Thanks chillicothekid for sharing this awesome video! We hope you enjoy this blast from the past!
