BBC NEWS Technology First ever computer mouse demo


Hi-tech visionary Douglas Engelbart first used one to demonstrate novel ways of working with computers on 9 December 1968.
The first mouse that Dr Engelbart used in the demo at the Fall Joint Computer Conference (FJCC) was made of wood and had one button.
Much of the technology shown off in the presentation inspired the creation of the hardware and software now widely used.
