First company to sell the modern computer mouse

Logitech was the first company to sell the modern computer mouse

Logitech was the first company to sell the modern computer mouse. The device with an optical encoder, two buttons and a single ball was created by Jean-Daniel Nicoud and André; Guignard of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne in Switzerland.
