Steve Jobs’s mouse recovered after 30 years
In 2013, a team of professional relic hunters set up to find a time capsule from the 1983 International Design Conference in Aspen, Colorado. Their final goal was Steve Jobs’s mouse, used for his Apple in 1983. Originally, the time capsule was set to be dug up in 2000, but the plan changed due some legal problems with the land.
The iconic mouse comes from a Lisa computer, an Apple failure, but which paved the way for the first Macintosh assembled one year later, in 1984.
Steve Jobs’s speech was so ahead of his time (remember, the year was 1983) who spoke about personal computers, portable computers, wireless networks and much more.
Some other items buried in the time capsule include a Rubick’s Cube, a Sears catalog, and a 6-pack of beer for the guys who finally dig up the capsule.
The team of relic hunters dig up in few wrong places, but their luck changed when they met an International Design Conference participant. Along her, and with the help of two more participants, they finally find the time capsule.
They found the beer, ice as cold (buried 6 feet deep under), and the mouse was one of the last items removed from the tube (time capsule).
They cheered and toasting the great finding with that beer. Who, after 30 years, was altered.
