Douglas Engelbart dies aged 88 - inventor of the mouse

Posted on Thursday, July 04 2013 @ 11:48:42 CEST by


News hit the Internet that Douglas Engelbart, the inventor of the computer mouse, passed away on Tuesday night at this home in Atherton, California. One of Engelbart's most known innovations is his "X-Y position indicator for a display system", later called a mouse. His employer SRI applied for a patent in 1967 and received it in 1970, but they really had no idea of how valuable his idea would become.
In addition to the mouse, Engelbart led many other research areas. He was the engineer who led SRI's Augmentation Research Center (ARC) which became the second node on ARPANET. He also worked on cutting edge technologies such as display editing, multiple windows, context-sensitive help, and more. His contributions in technology have helped shape everything in the world around us, and he will be missed. He is survived by his wife and four children.
