A mouse is a basic tool that is connected to a desktop or a laptop computer device by a USB and is used to aid in navigation, selection and creation of documents and images. The mouse has evolved over the years from the mechanical mouse which requires a ball to move the cursor on the screen to the optical-mechanical mouse which is a combination of the optical and the mechanical technologies. The optical mouse uses a laser to help detect the mouse’s movements. Another type of mouse available in the market is a wireless mouse which is dependent on radio signals to communicate with the laptop or computer.
With millions of consumers utilizing a mouse every day and hundreds of manufacturers trying to capture a chunk of the market, it is imperative that strict quality control and standards are implemented to ensure the quality of the mouse.
