A visual history of the computer mouse #VintageComputing
In the belief that every mouse has a tale, oldmouse.com intends to track the evolution of the computer mouse and its kin along its zig-zag trail of human ingenuity.
Like its furry namesake, the computer mouse proliferated across societies worldwide by its opportunistic adaptability. Creative human programming propagates its nearly infinite variations. The familiar mouse whose pointer glides through email, documents, or the World Wide Web earned its way to the top of the computer evolutionary tree of input devices (alongside the ubiquitous keyboard).
Most of the mouses (ed: mice?) featured live together in Missoula, Montana, gathered from across the US and beyond. A few rare mouses appear in photos courtesy of their owners.
You can catch all the history at oldmouse.com.
