Computer Mouse & Age Touch Screen

By: 10x Marketing

Back in the day when the first computer mouse was invented- it had only one button. The reason it had only one button was so you couldn’t make a mistake as to which button to push and it was just straightforward and non-complicated. The simplest and most straightforward things are not complicated and easy to use. Sometimes perfection can be improved upon. The Microsoft mouse emerged into a mouse having two, and at times 3 buttons and the wheel which didn’t complicate the mouse if anything it just made it more functional and increased usability.
?
Soon, the computer mouse became as apart of the office desk we all have come to know- mouse pads were invented to make it easier to use the mouse, wireless mice came on the market, needing only a small laser to connect the mouse to the curser onto your computer screen.

Next- ergonomic mouse was invented to include the comfort of all of the digits not just the index and middle fingers. And over the years, the computer mouse continues to evolve.
?
Touch screen technology and Glidepoint and Glidetouch technologies have now made the computer mouse more accessible. Laptops and other forms of portable computer devices use touchpad and trackpads in place of the computer mouse allowing a user to use their fingertips, as a person would use a computer mouse to control a curser making control of computer functions that much easier. Touch screen technology has made way for our fingertips to replace the computer mouse. Could the computer mouse be cast away so quickly?
?
Where will we see the next phase of the computer mouse? The computer mouse may not die out completely as we move into the future of the touch screen, but we may see the computer mouse technology turn itself into more remote functions than ever before with remote technology taking over large screens like pointer laser pens with more purpose or computer mice with much more control.
?
Who knows what new technology will bring or remove to our everyday computer use? If anything, technology will continue to evolve, taking the computer mouse with it and like everything else in natural selection- only the best survive.
