First computer mouse

For a little break from the stress of finals week, have a look at this YouTube link , showing the first ever demo of the computer mouse, from 1968! Pictured here is that first mouse; it was a block of wood with two wheels, and had a wire running out of the back. The wire looked like a tail to the researchers, and that's where the name "mouse" came from.
