The first computer mouse
Each time you click your mouse, you’re paying homage to a UC Berkeley engineering alum Douglas Engelbart.  Originally patented as the “X-Y Position Indicator for a Display System,” Engelbart invented and developed the first computer mouse. (It got its nickname “mouse” due to the cord attached to the rear of the device that looked like a tail.)
Engelbart is known for giving “The Mother of All Demos" in 1968 — a live demonstration that featured almost all of the fundamental elements of modern computing: windows, hypertext, graphics, efficient navigation, command input, video conferencing and a collaborative real-time editor.
