Jump On a New Technology

What’s an upcoming technology that you can help make happen?

                                  Realizing that computers were too difficult for all but the most highly trained scientists to operate, Douglas C. Englebart developed a prototype computer mouse in 1964. In 1970, he received a patent for the wooden shell with two metal wheels.

His invention was nicknamed the “mouse” because of the wire connecting it to the computer. The mouse was made to interface with graphical software ”windows” but his version of this software was not considered patentable as no software patents were being issued at that time.
