56 years!!!! The computer mouse was invented by Douglas Engelbart in 1964. Does that number blow your mind a little bit? Of course, that was nothing like the fancy LED numbers we have today, with their multiple buttons, and no need for a mouse pad. Remember when mouse pads were a thing? Did you just flash to cleaning the lint off the rollerball in your mouse?

Our picture today is of an oddball rollerball mouse that I still use. It’s great for its specific purpose. That being a mouse control in a spot where the mouse can’t move. But for the general day to day, it’s hard to beat that same basic design from 1964.
