Microsoft Hardware was formed in 1982 to develop a device that would help people use the company’s new word processing program.
The device was a mouse and the application was called Word, laying the foundation for a future of delivering hardware that helps people better and more easily use software.
From the original "green-eyed mouse" to groundbreaking products like the LifeCam NX-6000 and Wireless Entertainment Desktop 8000 (oh my gosh its so cool I need one), Microsoft Hardware has delivered exceptional mice, keyboards, communication products, and gaming gear that has changed the way the world works, plays, and connects.
I visited the Hardware department to take a tour down memory lane and get a peek into the future. Enjoy!
