“After 30 Years, Computer Mouse Still Prevails”
The world the mouse created
One cannot understand the success and longevity of the computer mouse without putting it in the context of the computing revolution it enabled. Before the mouse, users interacted with their computers by feeding in abstract punch cards or linguistically confusing lines of code words. The mouse transformed the computer into a visual device, thereby moving computing into the visual, immediate, “what you see is what you get” world that humans feel comfortable with.
“[The mouse] was a key development in the creation of graphic user interfaces,” said Donald Patterson, director of the Laboratory for Ubiquitous Computing and Interaction at the University of California, Irvine. “The mouse enabled long-term engagement with the screen, albeit indirectly, in a way that wasn’t particularly expensive and wasn’t prone to arm and hand fatigue.”
