At least his was wireless.

Last year, I wrote a sketch about a brilliant Renaissance inventor whose curse was that he was so far ahead of his time he invented the computer mouse before anyone had invented the computer.

Today, I came across this picture in the catalogue of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

It was made by the ancient Egyptians. Poor old Barbieri - five hundred years ahead of his time; three thousand years behind it.

You figured out that the ancient Egyptians foresaw the Microsoft (2-button) mice and the Renaissance foresaw the Mac (1-button) types. Platform wars extend over most of human history.

[Very brave of you to invite hieroglyphic spammers with this topic. Watch the space below.]
