Bill Buxton's Notes

This mouse is one of the first commercially available mice to be sold publicly. It is known as the Swiss mouse, and yes, the roller mechanism was designed by a watch maker. Coincidently, Depraz, the company that made it, is based in Apples, Switzerland. Their success in selling this mouse is what caused Logitech to switch from a software development shop to one of the world's leading suppliers of mice and other input devices.
