This article takes a look at the time when the computer equipment we now take for granted was invented and what it looked like back then. The first computer mouse The first computer mouse was invented in 1963 by Douglas Engelbart at the Stanford Research Institute. Douglas Engelbart never received any royalties for his invention and his patent had run out by the time the mouse became commonplace in the era of home PCs. Above: The first mouse.

50 Inspiring Vintage Advertisements

There have been numerous articles, blog posts and websites dedicated to the subject and I just can’t seem to get enough. Specifically, it is the advertising of the 50′s and 60′s that is most aesthetically pleasing to me.
