World First Mouse was made of wood, invented by Engelbart's legacy

World First mouse, which you are using today to control everything. You never knew who changed the world.

Engelbart’s legacy will live on as the pioneer who showed off the first mouse in 1968 at the Fall Joint Computer Conference in San Francisco, Calif. There, according to The New York Times, he showed more than a thousand of the world’s leading computer scientists a method of controlling a computer with a mouse and keyboard.
“In little more than an hour, he showed how a networked, interactive computing system would allow information to be shared rapidly among collaborating scientists,” reporter John Markoff wrote. “He demonstrated how a mouse, which he invented just four years earlier, could be used to control a computer. He demonstrated text editing, video conferencing, hypertext and windowing.”
