Lisa Mouse

The mouse created for the Apple Lisa was one of the very first commercial mice sold in the marketplace. Unique to this mouse was the use of a steel ball, instead of the usual rubber found in subsequent and modern mice. Though developed by Apple, it was actually designed by an outside firm, Hovey-Kelley, who built hundreds of prototypes and conducted exhaustive testing with focus groups in order to create the perfect device. Their perseverance paid off as not only did they bring the design in on time and on budget, but the resulting device remained virtually unchanged for almost 20 years. It was this mouse that established Apple’s mouse as a one-button device for over 20 years. Every single aspect of the mouse was researched and developed, from how many buttons to include, to how loud the click should be.
