Object is a computer mouse built in a metal housing. The 100-inch cord ends in a round connector with 10 male pins. The note attached reads in part "11/11/97, THE LIVERMORE MOUSE. In the mid 1970s, on a visit to SRI, we discussed such devices and examined their version. On return to the Lab, we arranged to build such a device. It is easy to see that our was 'much better,' provided you had to use it to cut lumber or anchor a boat. Notwithstanding, building the LRL mouse was valuable because it alerted us to so much about human factors and their importance in design."
