Button Mouse from the Xerox Alto
is a three button mouse from our Xerox
Alto II XM and was derivative of the first mouse produced by Doug
Engelbart's group at SRI in the mid
1960s. We also have in our collections and Alto
keyset, the first Microsoft Mouse and the first
joystick created for an Apple computer. Gary, a DigiBarn visitor,
later sent in photos of an original Alto wheel mouse
that he has in his collection.
