CNET News Video: Lost Steve Jobs mouse found after 30 years (video)

2:00 /

The Apple co-founder used the Lisa mouse in a talk in which he predicted many of Apple's future inventions. And then it went into a time capsule.

-That could be something now. -KG and I, are in Aspen, Colorado, hunting for the long lost personal mouse of computer icon, Steve Job. -Now that we found the Time Capsule, it takes us 2 hours of moving dirt to loosen this thing up. -You guys ready to pull this thing? All right. We did it. Look at that-- -Look it's out. -30 years, boom. Here it is. -KG gets the saw, makes the final cut-- -Oh, it's loose. -That's it. -and I can feel the end cap come right off in my hands. -Holy crap, holy-- -The 13 foot tube is packed full of nectar. So, I look in the tube, there's a little plastic bag in there, I reach in, I grabbed it, look. I mean, I kinda let go of it 'cause I panic, like it was-- like a hot stove. -It couldn't be. -There it is. Yeah. -We got the mouse. -Wow. -Wow. -I got goose bumps. -Oh my god. Look at this thing. -God, that's incredible. -Steve Jobs' mouse. -This is the least of computer mouse that Steve Jobs used at the 1983 conference. -And just to be sure this is the real deal, we brought along technology expert Marcel Brown. -You can tell this is an original -Lisa mouse-- -Yeah. -Wow. -'cause of the small button. -Oh. -Right. -This is a very important piece of history. In 1983, Steve Jobs gave a speech that show just what kind of visionary he was. He predicted things like wireless networking. He predicted the explosion of email, the iPad, even the iPhone, and for Steve Jobs to have used this mouse in that speech to predict the future, I think, this is priceless perhaps. -That's right. -That's incredible, huh? -Wow. -Wow.
