The death of the inventor of the mouse, Douglas Engelbart, has given the world a chance to pause and reflect on the vision of the computing pioneer for his humble but world-changing device.
This has also meant much of the pioneering work Engelbart carried out during his years at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) is now under the spotlight once again.
This is nicely demonstrated in the below video, an excerpt from his famous Mother of all Demos event, where he showed off much of the computer technology we now take for granted.
This includes keyboards and, as you can watch below, the mouse, for which Engelbart gives a somewhat apologetic explanation for its name.
"I don’t know why we call it a mouse. It started that way and we never did change it," he said.
