He outlined the shape of the mouse in a notebook and take it for several years. In early 1960s,he saw an interesting planimeter In early 1960s,he saw an interesting planimeter in a lab when attending a meeting. Based in a lab when attending a meeting. Based on it, he sketched a picture which was on it, he sketched a picture which was about converting machinery into digital about converting machinery into digital range and tracking the movement with range and tracking the movement with two perpendicular wheels. two perpendicular wheels.
