It was on this day in 1968 that Stanford Research Institute engineer Douglas Engelbart unveiled the first computer mouse during a technology conference in San Francisco.

That first mouse was housed in a block of wood and had just one button -- a far cry from today's sleek multifunction pointing devices. But primitive as it was, it was a groundbreaking idea destined for greatness -- computer mice now sit on hundreds of millions of desks worldwide.

Today, a high-quality custom-imprinted promotional computer mouse can be had for less than $10 and provides a great way to keep your company's name in front of your customers. Check out our great selection online or give us a call at 1-877-677-9988.
